Pacific Cruise Ship Terminals
100 Swinford Street
San Pedro, CA 90731
The Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro is home to the Los Angeles Cruise Terminal
also known as World Cruise Center
. It is operated by Pacific Cruise Ship Terminals. Between 800,000 and a million passengers embark each year on cruises to Mexico, Hawaii, northbound up the West Coast and beyond. Offerings range from quickie weekend cruises to Ensenada to multi-week repositioning cruises. Eleven major cruise lines originate or stop at the World Cruise Center
The terminal which hosted the original Love Boat
TV series from 1977 to 1986 was modernized and expanded in 2010-11 to accommodate the most modern megaships. The terminal can handle processing of three cruise ships at once.
You'll probably only be visiting the Los Angeles Cruise Terminal
itself if you're taking a cruise, but you can watch the ships come and go from the nearby Cruise Ship Promenade
or from Ports O' Call Village
, or enjoy the musical Fanfare Fountains
out front. The Waterfront Red Car Trolley
has a stop at the Terminal.
If you are coming or going from the Los Angeles Cruise Terminal
and have a few extra hours, most of San Pedro's attractions are nearby along the waterfront and can be reached via the Red Car
(if it's running).
