Long Beach Cruise Terminal
The second Los Angeles cruise ship terminal is located 23 miles away from LAX, and 5 miles away from the World Cruise Center Terminals. It was build in 2003 for Carnival Cruise Lines ships exclusively. The white dome, who used to be the Spruce Goose aeroplane home, houses the terminal.
The facilities here are parking space, bars, cafes, restaurants, check in, taxi ranks and shops.
- Address: "Port of Long Beach, 231 Windsor Way, Long Beach, CA 90802"
- Parking fee - $17 daily (Port Authority subject to change).
In October 2016 was announced that Carnival signed an agreement with the City of Long Beach CA and with the landlord Urban Commons to expand the "Long Beach Cruise Terminal" facility in order to accommodate larger ships and enhance terminal operations. The new deal triples the size of Carnival’s current cruise terminal facility - from 66,000 ft2 to 142,000 ft2.
- Carnival operates the Long Beach terminal since 2003 using a partial area of the Geodesic Dome (former museum). The new agreement gives Carnival 100% use of the Dome, allows for larger-sized cruise ships and also provides additional space for two-way operations, enabling embarking guests to access the terminal prior to completion of disembarkation.
- Construction will be completed in late 2017.
- Development plans also include expansion of portside cold-ironing capacity to accommodate larger vessels. Shore power allows docked cruise ships to shut down their main diesel engines and plug into the city's electrical grid, using hydroelectricity for all the onboard services. The technology greatly reduces exhaust emissions in port.
- In addition, Carnival is working with Urban Commons on enhancements to the area surrounding the Dome and the adjacent "RMS Queen Mary" (former Cunard liner) attraction, as well as ways to expand parking capacity to accommodate future growth.
