Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship's design is a little dated compared to ships built in the last 20 years.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was comfortable but small.
This was the place of embarkation and debarkation.

Catalina Island (Avalon) was nice, although it does not begin to compare to many Caribbean ports of call.

Ensenada is an armpit. We did the excursion to La Bufadora, which was mildly interesting but seems to exist only for the guides to pocket some cash for steering guests to particular vendors at the flea market.
5 out of 5
We took advantage of self-assisted debarkation and were off the ship before 7:30 am.
