West on the 91 Freeway to the 110  Harbor Freeway South. Continue South to San Pedro. Take the Terminal Island, Exit Ramp 47. Stay in the right lane, exit Harbor Blvd. Follow signs to the Catalina Terminal, Berth 95.  I believe Berth 95 is  next to where the Cruise Ships are located.  The driving distance from Corona is about 55 miles so plan on leaving home in time to arrive at 8 AM on Wednesday, September 9th.
