This was a short getaway to relax after a family visit in California. I was not unhappy with the change from Ensenada to Catalina - I've been to both before and either one was fine with me. I didn't plan to do an excursion in either place.
I had a spacious 1A cabin - it was perfect for one person. Never met my cabin steward, but he did a great job. I haven't had an inside cabin for a while, but it was fine for a short cruise. Room service every morning was a nice way to wake up.
I had late dining and was assigned to a table for 8. We were only 3 for dinner but my dining companions were very pleasant and we had a great time. Our waiter and assistant were terrific. I also ate in the dining room for breakfast and lunch on the sea day - all very good. At the buffet, I prefer the grills and pizza to the other offerings.
I didn't do much as far as activities went, preferring to spend most of the days on the adults only serenity deck. I saw a couple of shows, which were good and visited a couple of the lounges for karaoke and other music. I spent just enough time in the casino to make a small deposit - rare for me since I usually win.
Embarkation and debarkation were quick and easy. I carried my one small roll-on on and off myself.
