Seeing launching aircraft is definitely one of the most impressive things you can see aboard a carrier, especially if you can see it close enough. The screaming engines, the noise of the catapult makes a huge impact the first time you see it!
I consider this as the second best thing to see aboard after launch. It's simply unbeliveable how small the area is the pilots have to shoot for to arrest the hook and stop.
