Ep. 199 - The Catalina Wine Mixer: Part 1 of our Spring Break DCL Trip Report

Show Notes

This week's show is Part 1 of our trip report from our back-to-back Spring Break cruise aboard the Disney Wonder out of San Diego. In this show we're talking about our 4-night sailing to Catalina Island and Ensenada. This was DCL's first stop ever at Catalina Island and we *loved* the new port. We also got a chance to experience La Bufadora in Ensenada and had some pretty strong opinions about our stop in Ensenada. COVID protocols on the ship also changed significantly between this sailing and our last sailing, and changed further on the second sailing in our trip, which we'll talk about in Part 2. All this and more on this week's show!
