CPC Los Angeles

Sailing from Los Angeles to Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico

Week 5:  March 27-March 31, 2023

For the first time ever, College Party Cruise is heading West to sail out of Los Angeles. We will be sailing to the Baja peninsula, which is one of the world’s most iconic vacation destinations known for its laid-back resort towns, renowned beaches, and rich Mexican heritage. Get ready to spice up your vacation with margaritas, guacamole, and authentic Mexican tacos as you cruise through the Pacific Ocean aboard the newly amped Navigator of the Seas. Soak up the sun, and the scene, at the new resort-style pool deck, and get in an island state of mind at the three-level bar, The Lime and Coconut. Swap going out for going all out with tiki-chic cocktails at The Bamboo Room, dining options that satisfy every craving, and the hottest tables this side of Vegas at Casino Royale.

Itinerary: Orlando, Nassau, Cococay Bahamas

If you are booking a flight to and from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) we suggest that you consider arriving a day or two earlier so that you can take advantage of the local attractions in LA. This also helps to avoid potential flight delays, baggage collection and transfer problems that could occur.

If you are flying in the day of the cruise (Monday), we recommend that you book a flight that arrives at Los Angeles International Airport no later than 11:00am. Return flights should be arranged to leave Los Angeles after 12:00pm (noon) on Friday.

Day 1: Los Angeles, California

Boarding Day. Ship departure time is 4:00 p.m. Make sure to be on the ship by 3:00 p.m.  Now that you are on the ship, Spring Break has officially started! The entire ship, including the slides, pools, buffet, and bars are open and waiting for you… we hope you are thirsty and hungry. Grab some lunch, a drink (or two), and then check in with CPC to pick up your wristbands and tank tops. Once you’re settled in, then its off to the sail away party on the pool deck as we wave goodbye to LA and head out sea.

Once the sun retires for the day, discover a night filled with dancing, laughs, full-scale production shows, and live music at bars, clubs and lounges that never feature a cover charge. In addition to all the entertainment available throughout the ship, we will host late night private parties open to CPC spring breakers only!

Day 2: Cruising the Pacific Ocean

Don’t call this a boat. The Navigator of the Seas is a floating resort-city and is a destination in itself. Enhanced in 2019, this massive and action packed ship offers it all. During our day at sea, you can experience all the thrills this amazing ship has to offer, from the Flowrider surf simulator to the AquaCoaster – the longest slide at sea… did you know you could even go ice-skating in the middle of the Caribbean? Or you can simply relax with a Pina Colada in hand on the pool deck at one of the 3 pools or 6 jacuzzis. Make sure not to miss the hilarious competitions by the sports pool, like the classic Belly-Flop Competition or the Worlds Sexiest Man Competition.

Day 2: Coco-cay

Day 3: Catalina Island, California

We’ll arrive in Catalina Island at 8:00am. Located off the coast of California, Catalina Island is a little paradise, perfect for a day of unwinding and exploring. Everything is within walking distance, so its easy to go exploring the town of Avalon or grab your hiking shoes and hit the trails. If you’re looking to relax by the seaside, head to Descanso Beach Club, which is considered the nicest beach on the island, or set sail on a catamaran to circle the island and take it all in. Grab your swimsuit and towel and find a spot on the soft sand at Descanso Beach. It’s the only beach where you can legally drink on the island, so you can order your ice-cold treat of choice from the nearby beach club, then dig your toes in the sand as you soak up the view.

Day 4: Ensenada, Mexico

Seek out Bourdain-approved street food, drink in the legendary birthplace of the margarita, and surf the waves in this Baja California beach town. Ensenada is know as “The Cinderella of the Pacific” for good reason. Once an obscure playground getaway for Hollywood’s rich and famous, Ensenada has not only emerged as a popular Mexican Riviera cruise destination, but it’s become an ideal escape for visitors looking for the laid-back slower pace of Baja coastal towns.

Ensenada offers a bevy of activities and experiences, whether you hike to the towering waterfall of El Salto canyon, or take to the sea on a whale watching boat. Ensenada is also one of the premier culinary hubs of Baja California, whether you crave tacos made with fresh-caught local fish, or pan-Mexican favorites such as torta sandwiches.
