Thanks for your reply, Supercruiser! I am glad to hear you enjoyed Catalina Island. This is the first time I am cruising and of all the ports, I am very excited about Catalina Island as I understand it is somewhat of a nature preserve. A massage on the Island? That would be wonderful....I am looking forward to this specific stop even more! Did most of the guests partake of this event and did you find the island too crowded? Is a meal provided by the cruiseline or are we on our own? Are there any "touristy" spots to visit on the island? Your reply is appreciated.
