Ship Quality
Food and Dining
we opted to do the fast dining after the second night. The food was better and the service was quicker. The evening waiters/servers were excellent, just wasn't where my kids wanted to eat.
Cabin / Stateroom
San Diego, California
uss midway
Catalina Island, California
it was a bit cool, but I think snorkeling would have been great if the weather was warmer...we ended up not snoreling. The boys went canoeing and had a great time!
Ensenada, Mexico
$15.00 to see a blowhole? Not sure if that was a good investment. The shopping is always fun.
