We enjoyed the cruise because it was easy in all aspects.  The stops were great because you didn't really need to buy shore excursions except possibly in LA.  The staff on the ship was very accommodating and the shows were excellent.  The food was good and the boat was very steady.  The weather was fantastic as well.  Ensenada is much clean than before.  Great value especially if you live in the Bay Area since you can get the boat without airfare which is a real plus.  It's a great alternative to the Mexican Riviera if you want a different experience.

We were right about midship even though the room is considered mid-forward. The balcony is perfect for 2 people. Order room service or drink some wine on the balcony with snack from the buffet.

Ship Tip

Great opportunity to relax and enjoy yourself on a simple itinerary.

It's just a low key experience. It's easy to walk to the downtown without taking a bus or cab.

We visited our daughter so we just drove to Huntington Beach. It's only about 15 to 20 minutes away.

Went to Sea World. Public transportation there is slow so we took a cab. About $25 each way. Then we went to the Gaslamp district for a drink.

I walked all the way to the mission and then caught a 50 cent bus back to the boat on State Street. It has beautiful residential areas, parks, etc.
