Wonderful experience!

Sail Date: July 20, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

It's like the fanciest Las Vegas casino with shows, restaurants, activities, pools, jacuzzis, mini-golf, volleyball, basketball, etc., all included for a great price, plus it moves!

Catalina island was amazing. I really recommend the parasailing and to go snorkeling over the kelp forests.

Ensenada was interesting, a poorer Mexican city. Went and saw the marine geyser (one of three in the world which was neat. Somewhat aggressive vendors near there though.

Pros: Freindly and wonderful staff, lots to do, great rooms, casino, outstanding food everywhere.

Cons: I left the two "vegas style reviews" early as they seemed a bit amateurish, but that may just be my taste
