  • During the cruise the ship made a stop at Catalina Island. It is a private island defended by a massive coral reef.

Either way it deserves because it truly is a quiet Island, rich in vegetation and surrounded by a sea of various and typical Caribbean colors. On the island there are many colourful shops where you can find everything but you have to know how to haggle (propose the 50% of what they ask for and accept them). The Caribbean music is the host infecting all tourists.
