We are sailing on Norwegian from Vancouver to Los Angeles. What would be the best way to get from our terminal to LAX? Thanks for any suggestions.

If you don't want to use the NCL shuttle , there is a private shuttle to LAX also taxi's are available.

If "we" means 2 people, I would just go with the ship's shuttle as the savings is not worth the extra hassles of arranging and looking out for your transportation. If it's a larger group then it would be worth the savings.

We just did a coastal this year and Princess charged $29 per person. We may of been able to save a little bit but I didn't want to be looking out for an unfamiliar company or wait in the long cab line to save $10-$15 total.

I found Execu Car to be perfect for 4 adults plus all our cruise luggage. Received txt reminder the day prior and txt with description of vehicle and license number. Sometimes its "cheaper" to pay "more" . Highly recommended

We just used Uber two weeks ago and it worked fine. They used surge charge pricing but it still was cheaper than a taxi and a lot more convenient (and maybe cheaper) than the shuttles.

we just used super shuttle. they line up outside the terminal, BLUE VANS give them your reservation number and name. they pull out when the van is full. about 8 people. we prepaid included tip. About $40 for two all in. we got there at 10:30 on a Saturday and were at the airport by 11:00. Allow more time for weekdays. Have done it before will do it again.
