Default Catalina

Does RCCL tender into the same pier that Carnival does? Had heard or read somewhere that their tenders go to different places.

Am familiar with the main pier - do Monarch tenders go there or........? and how far a walk/ride from there to the Casino.

thanks.

You can walk everywhere in Catalina, or they have golf carts you can rent to get around with...but the entire 'city' is maybe one mile square.

We love going to Catalina for our quick california get aways. There is nothing to do but shop, eat , and relax : )

If you are brave, take the bus tour to the back side of the island!

Darcy, Carnival stops at the green pier in town, and the Monarch tenders over to the pier that sits just outside town ... still an easy walk -- say 5-7 minutes -- but just as not "in town" as the Carnival stop.

thanks, Harry - just what I wanted to know. The extra walking distance to the casino may be an issue for one in our group. any easy transportation - guess we could always rent a golf cart.

The golf cart is probably a good idea, then. You can make astop at the casino to look at the outside and maybe the hit the museum, while still having time to drive up to the Wrigley Gardens, etc and check out the view points.

Darcy,

Very easy, downhill walk into town...

It is a good distance all the way around to the Casino...Golf cart would be a good idea.

When are you sailing...??

My wife and I are on the May 2nd cruise.

Good luck,

VanWinkFam

Yea, but it's the uphill that's the tough part -- we gave up past the Bird Park building. Catalia also has a cheap tram system -- think it's a buck a person.
