Default 3 Day Ensenada Sep 9: Paradise

3 nt cruise to Ensenada, BC., September 9-12, 2005

Our embarkation process took all but maybe 20 minutes (arriving at the port around 12:45pm), very smooth and trouble free.

Alcohol? Yes, we brought along several bottles (carefully packed into our check-in bags) and a full size Kitchen Aid blender! Just bought some drinks when we first got on then reused the souvenier (plastic) Carnival glasses and straws! Worked out great.

For sushi lovers, beware! It was the worst I have ever had! No choices, just get handed a small plate with 4 pieces of ??; very bad.

All other foods on board from hot dogs, pizzas, burgers to dining room dinners and deserts were very good.

Formal night was on Saturday night (Ensenada day). Lobster and/or prime rib was served.

Didn't see too many kids at all (their were 3 in our party) around the ship, maybe because school already started for most of them.

We were part of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu seminar group. Carnival arranged workout schedules for the seminar over 2 days, Saturday and Sunday, 3 1/2 hours each day.

Debarkation took a long time. Started off loading passengers at around 8:30ish, we finally got off at around 10:30am and we weren't the last ones either.

Overall, the experience was very good. No real complaints, only that maybe the breakfast staff in the dining room could have been more personable.

Would I go on this cruise again? Most definately!
