We sail Splendor 2/28/10 on our honeymoon cruise

We are planning on booking the Queen Mary the night before, hopefully doing the dining with the spirits - dinner and tour.

We really hope to catch some whale watching on one of the excursions.

Not sure if this has come up, but how much is parking at the LA cruise terminal? I heard it is $15 a day. Does anyone know a place near the terminal for less?

Somebody must have a secret parking spot they can share with us all...

We sail January 31st on our 1st cruise AND my first time out of the USA!!!!
We are flying into San Diego on the friday before (1/28/10). Driving up to Long Beach while taking in the sights and staying on the Queen Mary for a 3 night (hopefully) Ghost ridden stay. Then when we get back from the cruise we are driving back to San Diego for 3 days of just browsing the city (no definate plans there) before coming back to COLD and probably snowy Ohio. Im so excited I simply cant stand it.

The person going Nov. 1st...I treid to get that cruise (My birthday is the 4th) but couldnt get the time off work until January

San Pedro and Long Beach are right near each other. To park in Long Beach (where only Carnival sails out of) is $12 per day. I'm looking into park and cruise hotels in the area. Since I don't cruise until May 08 my list is really rough.

Here is the things we found when we were looking. We just decided staying at the queen mary, turning in our rental car on saturday and walking around the area/ city transit would be cheaper and less stress...hope tyhese help though

Option 1
We thought we could stay anywhere and just go park at one of these places and take a shuttle to the cruise ship and then back

Long Beach Airport - $11 day shuttle from there to the cruise terminal is $19 1st person and $9 additional

LAX Johnny Park-$7.95 day prime time shuttle $32 each way- thats for 2 adults w/2 pieces of luggage (not counting carryon)
parking coupons here- http://www.johnnyparklax.com/coupons.php

Option 2
Park at the cruise terminal $12.00 day

Option 3
Use hotel parking and hotel shuttle or other public transit to terminal

Renaissance $150 night and $16 day parking
Woodfin hotel $208 night and $15 day parking
Ramada hotel $268 1 night hotel and 7 days parking $10 additional day parking
Hotel Maya $219 1 night
Hilton $248 night and $24 day parking
Best Western $129 night 1 mile from terminal $10 day parking

Option 4- what we decided to do
Queen Mary $108 night delux stateroom (we're staying 3 nights)- use rental car and pay 2 days parking @ $15 day- turn in car saturday before cruise and use saturday to tour area by hotel.

The Port authority needs to update there website. Thanks for letting me know. I think I will probably do the park and cruise package.
The Comfort suites charge $159.99 for there park and cruise package. I'm not sure now nice the hotel is and I don't know if the price includes taxes. But $105 to park I mind as well have a night's stay.
http://www.cisuiteslongbeach.com/packages.asp
The Marriott also has a cruise and park package. However, the code is only valid until 12/31/09 so I will have to wait for a 2010 code or call to book.
http://www.marriott.com/specials/mes...splayLink=true
The Sea Port marina hotel also has a park and cruise package. I know nothing about this hotel so I will have to check it out.
http://www.seaportmarinahotel.com/specials.html
What I'm looking for is hotels with a package that is a cruise and park package. This is just the start of the list.

Okay still working on my list. Best Western's park and cruise package is $169.99 for seven days and one night stay. http://www.bwoflongbeach.com/promotions.htm
Holiday Inn has a park and cruise package that starts at $149.99 (I bet that is for a four day cruise). Also this one only goes through 12/31/09.
http://www.hilongbeach.com/specials.asp
the Residence Inn has a snooze and cruise package. Also only goes through 12/31/09.
http://www.marriott.com/hotels/hotel...each-downtown/

I checked with Queen Mary hotel and they do not have a park and cruise package.

I will need to do additional research, but so far the Residence Inn is my top choice. It just depends on if they rise the snooze and cruise price for 2010 and by how much.

Maumekim it doesn't look like the prices you have are for park and cruise packages. I'm not certain the hotels you listed have the park and cruise packages, (expect the Best Western does I listed it on one of my other posts).

For me the car rental would be pricey, because I'm not dropping off in the same city where I'm picking up. If I can get a park and cruise hotel for $169 to 189 per night then that is my best bet. But we will only stay one night in the hotel and you are staying 3 nights. My suggestion is to call the hotels and ask about park and cruise packages for a 3 night stay. See what kind of deal you can get.

The list I did was completed in May so yeah, the prices may have changed. I called and was quoted each price I listed.

We are flying in to San Diego and driving up to Long Beach and turning the car in there, then getting a car in Long Beach and driving back to San Diego where we will turn the car in before we leave for home.

My prices may be different due to the time of year we are going and how far in advance I checked?? Im not sure, sorry for posting something not correct.

Maybe I just hit on a really good deal when I called. At any rate...hope everyone finds what they need and gets a good deal.
Sorry again

Katlady...I havent forgotten your kindness a few months ago...

16 yrs...what "special things" are you planning? well besides the cruise.

Just remember when you get on the ship and get to your room that My name is Kim...youll understand later.

I want to zip line in puerto Vallarta but hubby is over the 250# weight limit so we will do the ATV adventure instead...are you planning anything daring?

Somehow from the picture you sent me I am sure your hubby will make it fun!

No big deal I think the difference is I checked on "packages" that include parking. So they will be higher then the room rate alone. My impression on the Queen Mary hotel is that they run a lot of specials on the room prices you got a good deal on a special. If I can get a park and cruise deal for 170. Then I would have paid $105 for parking ($15 per day) and the room would only be $65. That is how I'm looking at it. My hubby and I are driving up from Sacramento.

I remeber now. No plans yet since we are still 8 months are so out. I would like to try something daring. Like walking across the hot sand in my bare feet. My hubby knows how to have fun on a cruise ship.

Hey hey hey folks, Da Angel in da house! (aka Jeanette...)

I am back from a seven day birthday party on the Splendor! I can safely say that I was treated like a queen. I was happy to have Miguel as the M'd for the Black Pearl. He was the M'd from the Liberty last year--sweet teddy bear--hug him if you can!!!!!! I was suprised he remembered me, but I remembered him! I guess Alex from the Liberty, or so I am told, remembered me to.....

Miguel, if you come on the forum and read this, please do what you promised...please....

Queen Mary--excellent! I loved staying in the QM! Pricy, but well worth it. So the tours, but get there and sign up as early as possibly, I just caught the ghosts tour with a few minutes to spare!!!!!!

QM ghosts--I didn't see anything, but someone else said they thought they saw something, but no confirmations for sure.....

Splendor cruise was wonderful and the spa treatments are amazing..the seaweed treatment with half (or full) body massage is amazing!!!!!!! I had the spa suite and the towels are a beige color and the robes are different from the standard, they are smooth and have Clound 9 logo....didn't bring one back cuz it didn't fit...so much for one size fits all....one size fits nicely for under size 14-16, over size 16, wishful thinking....

Welcome back, did you use the T-pool and what did you think of it? What other spa services were included for having a spa suite? Is there a suana or steam room non spa people can use for free? Glad to hear you have a good time.

Katlady--YES!!!! I udsed the Thalasso pool five of the seven nights. One night I was so offupied I couldn't squeeze an hour in to get to the Thermal suite and thalasso pool at all!!! I was busy busy. The last night I did not as I had to pack and didn't want a wet bathing suit in the suitcase.

I loved the thalaso pool, most of the time there was only a few people in there and sometimes I was all alone.

I use the Turkish bath and Laconium. The first mild steam room was usually very popular and the room next too it, aromatherapy did nothing for me. The Oriental steam bath was wow, intense.....You can stay in max 10 minutes and I lasted at best 7. After that I felt sooo good and like jello!!!! The Laconium was next where I'd stay for another 10-20 minutes...

The thermal suite and thalasso pool are controlled by card access and you have to turn in your S&S card to get the access card. Anyone who purchased the pass got lovely cut off wrist bands, everyone who had a spa cabin got a on/off white wrist bad with Cloud 9.

The spa does have a sauna/steam room for all guests to use, but the Thermal suite and thalasso are spa guests or pay for the service use.

The whirlpools on the Splendor are on Deck 10 and smoking on the ship is very limited to certain areas only!!!

Thanks for the information. I'm glad to hear there is a sauna/streamroom for non spa room guests. I wanted to book the 4S room, but my hubby out voted me. I loved the T-pool on Celebrity infinity and was so happy Splendor has one. I might have to buy that package. We save money over the spa room cause my hubby won't use the spa stuff.

Angel, I'm glad they had wristbands for you, we tried to get ours the first day and they said they ran out.... ran out?? :evil: How can you run out, you only have so many cabins with a certain number of guests, it's not rocket science.... lol
But seriously, they must not have gotten their last order in, we had to get a new cut off band everyday. We still got to use the spa, so all was good.

Why is it that the last 7 days goes sooooo slow? Oh well...3 to go and I only have one more day behind the desk!!!

Did I read that they charge for popcorn when you are watching movies on the big screen by the pool???
