Boat Ride by kamasdanes

This was a trip for my daughter and me. It was her first cruise. The first night was a windy storm which caused a days delay to go to Santa Catalina. We were on the rough ocean for several hours before it calmed. Many people were ill and vomiting everywhere. We were placed by a family when we went to breakfast and the teenager next to us vomited all over the table and the floor. My daughter was convinced never to do a cruise again at that point.

A bit hectic by sgj

The cruise was a bit hectic, not much time to relax in the quiet. We hit a storm and half of my party got sick. Catalina Island is gorgeous, and I 'll be going back, for sure. Bit will most likely just take the ferry. Ensanada was rainy with no beach. I wish I would have booked the extra day and made it down to Cabo. I will definitely not go again in Feb. The hot tubs were so full we couldn't get in. The food in the dining room was excellent, and the buffet was ok. The pull out couch was very hard and uncomfortable. But I'm very happy we had a balcony. The drink bill added up fast between all of us, But the kids had fun . And we have some fun memories to bring home. Not sure I'll do this one again .

Try everything! Even if an activity doesn't sound that fun or like you'll fit it, go anyways. The crew makes everything fun for everyone.

Rent a golf cart at Catalina Island to get around, well worth it. But if you do, reserve it in advance. You'll get it for 3 hours vs 2 hours if you rent one on site. The extra hour will make the difference and you won't feel as rushed to return it.

Be sure to go to the Deli for a sandwich, good Pastrami. If you want to see more of the entertainment go for the early seating for dinner.
