Princess agents were waiting for us in the airport baggage area, with signs, and carts for our cases, that they whisked off to the ship in a white van. Shortly after our luggage left we boarded a bus for the journey to San Pedro where our ship the Island Princess awaited.The bus trip was also smooth until we pulled over in a seedy part of LA for a mandatory life jacket
Our bus took us to the port of Los Angles at San Pedro where several cargo ships were docked along with two Princess ships. The Sapphire bound for Mexico and our Island Princess bound for Panama.
Port Of Los Angles
We were led into a huge terminal waiting area where our passports were checked. Our boarding passes were checked. We were checked by a metal detector for any excess metal, and then before we could board we were handed a small white piece of paper with two yes or no questions.
1.Do you have or have you had in the past few days diarrhea?2. Have you vomited in the past few days?
I answered no to both questions and was allowed to board.
We got underway right on schedule, and headed out to sea…
Everything on board in quite elegant
