The ship was fun.  We enjoyed being together as a family.  I would have rated it higher, however, Club O2 was boring for my teens and not much going on at the camp for my 5th grader.  The activities at the pool were entertaining, however, geared more toward adults.  Our steward, Hiro was fantastic!!!  The rooms were very clean and well maintained.

Onboard Activities

Not a lot for a family to do together at night. My kids like dancing with us and we couldn't. Everything was 21 and older in the evening.

Ship Tip

As a family, take a carry on onto the ship so you can change while waiting for luggage. At end of cruise carry your own luggage off the ship and while waiting for disembarkation play a game with the kids while having breakfast.

We met a great little family at check-in and hung out together on the ship.

We have been to Catalina several times so we did not get off the ship. We enjoyed all of the amenities while everyone was gone.

We went to the Bufadora and had lunch at the most fantastic little taco hut just near the buses. The churros are amazing and so is the baked clam filled with seafood!!
