A comedian repeated the same story at different shows during our cruise
Food and Dining
main courses, steak and fish, were served at a temperature lower than expected. We had to wait for food at the assigned table for about an hour each night.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Ensenada, Mexico
Blowhole is a must see ... pressure from sea water. Not much to shop in the surrounding area. Anyway, I bought a leather belt for $10 after bargaining from $47. So prepare to bargain ....
Catalina Island, California
Not much different from mainland. I would rather stay on the ship next time
