I hope someday that you get to visit Catalina Island. I have not been there myself. I enjoyed reading your great review.
Thanks for the review. Glad you had a good time.
I have done the Imagination once and the Inspiration a few times for the Baja cruise. The ships are both Fantasy Class so the same size and lay out. The Imagination is nice that it is not as Las Vegas Tacky as the Inspiration's decor. I did find the MDR service better on the Inspiration.
Decades ago I did the Baja trip on the Viking Serenade (RCI) a few times, Monarch Of The Seas, the Infinity (Celebrity) out of San Diego and on the Carnival Paradise.
The short regional cruises are great ways to get your feet wet to cruising the first time and then they are a great budget friendly get away for a few days.
I hope your able to do the cruise again and make it to Catalina Island. The island is a nice place to visit.
