Default Excursions with Baby

We're taking our (will be then) 15 month old on the Carnival Paradise. The ship stops in Catalina Island and Ensenada. I'm concerned about what to do with a baby. I don't want to hire a taxi because of safety and car seats. Are there any beaches/ shopping districts, etc. nearby that we can walk to with the stroller? Or is it worth it to bring the car seat (which I really don't want to!)

Also, I've seen lots of posts about bringing your own kiddie pool to let baby swim in. Has this worked for anybody? I think its a great idea to let the baby feel included. Any other advice on cruising with a baby?

Thanks for your help!

I saw several pictures of babies in thier blowup pools who were very happy.

I have not been to that port but I'm sure several people here can help you out.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.
