Southern California Cruise

Sail Date: May 15, 2006

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Had a great time. Enjoyed the music at the pool, the buffets and dining room service, shows and activities (was off the ship at port every day, so couldn't participate as much as I would have liked to).

Pros: Close to home - 25 minutes to get to the port

Cons: Wasn't ready to go home yet and the cruise was over

Cabin / Stateroom
Deck 4 stateroom did not have a safe so I had to carry my purse constantly. No nightstand either. These items were included on higher decks.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Ensenada, Mexico

Don't Miss: shopping in town
Catalina Island, California

Don't Miss: rent a golf cart and drive all around in the hills - map route given with rental
San Diego, California

Don't Miss: Could stay a week - there are museums, Sea World, harbor cruise, USS Midway
