Perhaps you've arrived in San Diego and have time to kill before boarding your cruise. Or, maybe you're based near the B Street Cruise Terminal, located in the downtown neighborhood, for a few days surrounding your voyage at sea. Either way, a number of San Diego's best restaurants are within a short walk or taxi ride away.
For the times you'd like to grab a quick sandwich and perhaps some festive Italian snacks to keep in your cabin, head on over to nearby Little Italy. The pizza and meatball subs from Filippi's Pizza Grotto are divine, plus the market offers up plenty of to-go options.
The new revitalized Headquarters in Seaport Village is home to boutique shopping and excellent restaurants. A fine dining top pick is Eddie V's, known for consistently stellar service and mouthwatering seafood and steaks with a supper club vibe. It's pricey, but most diners agree a meal here is worth every penny.
If you'd like a spot within walking distance of the cruise port, try Anthony's Fish Grotto for casual seafood. It's literally on the bay and one of the best places in town to watch a sunset. Fried seafood and clam chowder are favorites.
What can be better than good food and a cruise? Lucky you.
