CARNIVAL SPIRIT HAWAII CRUISE 2007: Fantastic cruise! Woke up every morning in a new port! Ship was more like a hotel the first week. Very few planned activities onboard. The last five days were very relaxing and (fortunately) the seas were unusually calm. We arrived back in Ensenada, MX mid day on the last day and were allowed to visit Ensenada like a regular port. Buses arrived at midnight to take back to the USA. They were packed and we boarded at 4:30AM. Although we had herd horror stories about the birder crossing, it was very quick. We got off the bus leaving our luggage onboard. We walked through Boarder Patrol and Customs very quickly. Our bus arrived a few minutes later and we all made early flights with plenty of time to spare. Although 12 days is a long time to vacation, the price per day was very low. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
