Q&A Regarding the cruise:
1. For anyone coming from out of town, what airport should I use, LAX or Long Beach?
Answer: If arriving in LAX is less expensive, please book the airline ticket accordingly. Once arriving in LAX, please take hotel shuttle bus to Hilton Hotel in LAX, the transportation from there to Long Beach (cruise) will be arranged by NATPA President Charles Hsu.
2. When do people need to arrive in LA?
Answer: We can start checking in for the cruise around noon on 7/31 (Friday). The travel time from LAX to Long Beach is approximately 40 min. It’s therefore best to arrive in LAX in the morning.
3. When is the due date for registration? What if cancelation is needed?
Answer: The numbers of cabins are not limited to 50 as seen in the registration form. Please hurry and register the trip now; the group rate is due on April 2nd. In case of cancelation, there is no penalty if it’s done 61 day before the departure date.
4. When will the cruise ship return to Long Beach on 8/3 (Monday)?
Answer: Before Noon, hence for flight leaving LA is best to be scheduled in the afternoon.
