Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

This was my first cruise with RC, and I found it much better than I expected. There are many activities for all age groups, I would like to see however more family entertainment...such as the family karoke. It wasgreat but the other night it took place conflicted with our dinner time. :(

Pros: Lay out of the ship

Cons: Would like nighttime buffets

My stateroom was as I expected it to be and found it just right.

Service and Staff
Catalina Island, California
San Diego, California
Went to Balboa Park which has many museums on its grounds, it was awesome and quite easy to get to if you wanted to get there on your own.
Ensenada, Mexico
The kayaking excursion is well worth the money! You get to really experience the Bufodora or blowhole and we even saw some sea lions out among us.
Don't Miss: Bufadora kayaking trip
