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.

First day we waited in lengthy lines for the outdoor buffet, not realizing that through the doors were line-free buffet stations. After that, had no food lines at all. If you have kids, the Carnival Imagination with full water park, is definitely the way to go.

The ship is small enough to easily find your way around, yet big enough to never feel crowded. We loved having our breakfast and lunch outside at one of the bistro tables.

Bring a warm jacket as nights can be a little on chilly side outside of ship.

Get to know the boat layout on day one. There are some elevators that go to all floors, others only part way so you have to use the stairs. Elevators are slow to arrive, so have patience or get some exercise and take the stairs!
