Staying overnight in Long Beach?  We encourage you to grab a hotel room if you are flying or driving from afar.  As a convention city, hotels fill quickly.  Here is a selection of hotels.  On the return, allow plenty of time to arrive, disembark, go through customs, and then get to the airport.

Check out the Best Western of Long Beach (562)599-5555.  We haven't stayed there.  Offers inexpensive parking during the cruise with a shuttle to the nearby cruise terminal.
