We liked the ocean as our view (we are from Albuquerque, New Mexico and came out to see the ocean).
We should have bought assigned seating to assure window seats to the ocean.
Don't pick a train return time to see the sunset from San Diego to the OC. Assure sun time to see the ocean on the way home, too!
