Our Hotel Is Ready To Go!

We got the last nine rooms available at the end of February and then three other couples decided to join us so we got the three suites that were available. The Liles & Zaitz took the largest of the suits so here is what we have available at this time.

Paul & Sue are going to Catalina on March 25th to make final arrangements and get the locations of the rooms....


The Boat Ride

We have made reservations and have confirmation for our ride over and back on the Long Beach Catalina Express.

The Catalina Landing at Downtown Long Beach is located in the heart of the city, along the waterfront beside the Pike and the Aquarium of the Pacific. The port is easily accessible from Los Angeles, Orange County or San Diego.

The "Catalina Lounge" at the Landing serves beer, wine, appetizers, breakfast, lunch, dinner, cappuccinos, lattes and smoothies.The "Catalina Deli" serves soups, sandwiches, burgers and more.
Brochure racks and Catalina Island tour information are available.

Departure: 2:00 Friday May 10th

Fares: Seniors are $66.00/pp round trip... Sorry Sam & Brenda, yours is $72.50/pp (note, we upgraded everyone... See below)

Upgrade: Why are riding in style. We picked the $15 upgrade each way, Commodore Lounge passengers enjoy priority boarding, comfortable seating in a more intimate lounge environment and a complimentary beverage with packaged snack served by cabin attendants. Leather trimmed seats in the Lounge are wider, recline for comfort and offer individual tray tables. In addition, the Commodore Lounge’s upper level location on the JetCat Express, Starship Express and Catalina Jet catamarans offer seat-to-ceiling level windows for great ocean views. Pets are not permitted in the Commodore Lounge.

NOTE: Because of it being Mother's Day and several people need to get back to America, we made the return a little earlier....

Return: 10:15 am (puts us at Long Beach at 11:30am... Time to visit with family!

The Ball

The Ball tickets are $45/pp and we already have 24 tickets.... Pick then up at Will Call. NOTE: Sue and Paul go in early since we are Art Deco Members and we will get seats/tables setup for the grounp!
