Thank you for your info, this could be very useful for us. thanks again.
If you go to the Princess website, click on the 'Learn about our Cruises' tab and then follow the links, you will see that there are three excursions on offer in LA. It states on two of them that they are not available for embarking or disembarking passengers, but there are no such restrictions on the LA Highlights tour, so you may be able to reserve places on this. Sometimes, additional tours are offered by the tour office on board, particularly for disembarking passengers. You will receive a shore excursions brochure from Princess about 10 weeks before departure and this may give you additional information. Hope this helps.
