For the port of Long Beach how can you not list The Queen Mary tour, museum and restaurant ? Also Parker,s Lighthouse for sea side dining and the Long Beach pier ? Don't forget the Long Beach grand prix.

I feel like we can get a handbook or something together and publish it with basic port go to's... Put it on amazon, digital DL and make a cruise fund honey pot!

Meghad23. The port of Long Beach is a start and finish port for Carnival Cruise lines. Two ships are ported year round out of LB for 3 and 4 night Baja Mexico cruises. I do not believe that any cruise line uses LB. For a day port visit, most other Cruise lines use The Port of Los Angeles (San Pedro).

The Port of Long Beach uses the dome building that was built to house "The Spruce Goose" the jumbo wood air plane built by Howard Hughes and is rite next to the Queen Mary Hotel (the original Queen Mary ship is docked as a floating hotel).

LB also has fort MacArthur military fort built in 1888 that is believed to be haunted.

We enjoyed the aquarium even more than we thought we would. It was fantastic! The shops all around the harbour are good to wander and there are several places to eat close together. We decided not to tour the Queen Mary - friends who stayed on it the night pre cruising were disappointed in it, but admitted it was a "once in a lifetime opportunity". We certainly wouldn't mind going back to see and do more in Long Beach.

The port of Long Beach and the port of Los Angeles( San Pedro Pier) are basically in the same place. Princess Cruise line goes out of San Pedro. Southwest Airlines has opened up many new flights into Long Beach (LGB) which is way more convenient that flying to LAX (Los Angeles)

Enjoyed a fab dinner at Parker's in June.

The lobby bar/restaurant at the Renaissance has some nice tidbits and choice of in or outside seating.
