  1. Are you contacting the general support folks or the Latitudes folks? When I was booking my next cruise my TA didn't have all my info for the hold booking to get me quotes so it generated a new Latitudes number, a quick call by her to the Latitudes department got the accounts merged into my old one and everything is square...
  2. Our plan (or mine anyway) has been to use LAX as a "base". We have airport transfers so we were going to utilize that to get back to the airport then jump off from there. We considered Uber and such but 3 of us would need an XL so the cost was close to or more than what we're paying for the cruise line transfers, and Super Shuttle isn't much less either.
  3. One saving grace may be that one of those ships is doing a TA, I would venture that more people on that ship will take cabs, Uber, hotel shuttles or cruise line transfers than on the other closed-loop sailings.
  4. Except Empress and Oasis will have "claimed" the spots for their passengers first, by having sailings on dates prior to the other two ships. Once those spaces are occupied by earlier sailings of Empress and Oasis they can't be occupied by passengers on other ships. Here's how it'll work (based on the schedule posted above) - On May 4, passengers for that Empress sailing will park and go on their cruise. On May 6, passengers on that Oasis sailing will do the same On May 9, Celebrity Summit passengers get their turn. At this point, cars are parked in spaces and are not moving until their owners return from their trips On May 10, Oasis returns. Her passengers get off the ship, go find their cars and leave, opening up parking spaces. Her next batch of passengers arrive and OCCUPY THOSE SAME SPACES! On May 11 Same for Empress On May 15 Adventure arrives and her embarking passengers take whatever spaces are left in the lots May 17, Oasis returns for another turn-around day, but her embarking passengers take the same spots that were occupied by the May 10 passengers (and May 4 before them). Can I explain it more clearly?
  5. No it won't. The spots to be occupied by the May 17 Oasis sailing will be freed up by the passengers disembarking from the May 10 Oasis sailing. What part of this concept escapes you?
  6. There's at least one company offering storage. $22 per bag with airport pickup/drop-off. Contemplating renting a car, all a discussion for when I meet with my travel companions...
  7. For what they charge - their website could be better. Grammar mistakes, template text still on the page, the menus can be difficult to read. The tour looks cool and might be worth the $150pp but that still leaves me and my companions with 4 hours to kill before we need to be at LAX. We could spend $110pp plus transportation and go to Disneyland, while probably killing more time.
  8. They really need to re-word that page, it causes SOOO much confusion and posts here. Bottom line - pay attention to the dailies (all-aboard will be listed there), the info signs as you leave the ship and SHIP TIME! Sometimes the ship will run a different time than the port, all-aboard is based on SHIP time, not PORT time.
  9. I had the same requirement. Not an issue for me as I've since had Lasik so I no longer need glasses...
  10. I'm not small and don't pack light and still didn't find the Studio to be too small. That said - for my next cruise I found that a balcony with NCL's reduced airfare (even though that removed the reduced solo supplement on that cabin) cost me less than $100 more when airfare was factored in on the Studio which made for an easy decision. I don't drink so I only took 2 of the perks in addition to the reduced airfare.
  11. I'll be watching with interest - I have a similar predicament but with 2 hours more time. I'm considering maybe using the Disney transportation at the airport and going to Disneyland for the day. Will be discussing plans this weekend with the people I'm traveling with for the days pre and post cruise. I actually saw someone take a helicopter tour of the LAX area, including overflying the airfield, that cuold be really interesting.
  12. As noted - you're not getting it. The spots to be used by the Oasis sailing before yours are already "claimed" by the folks that are arriving back on that ship. Those people get in their cars and leave, after which the spaces are then re-occupied by the people coming in for that sailing. The net result should be a similar number of spaces occupied after the Oasis is turned around.
