I decided to take the family on our first cruise for our first visit to Mexico. The Carnival cruise was a great value and the balcony room was worth the slight extra expense! The rooms are small, so the balcony adds a little extra room and fresh air. We had a view of the sunset, sunrise and the moon!
I mentioned to our waiter that I like to eat gluten free, and he asked me to pre-order the next night's dinner so the chef could make my order gluten free! If you are GF - just ask!
We planned to tour the port city of Ensenada, but we were offered an excursion to La Bufadora and its seaside village and horseback riding on the beach! Bring lots of cash to pay for your excursions, and all the tips!
My husband and teenage sons all had a great trip and we hope to go on a cruise again very soon!

    Had a wonderful time on this ship and the crew was amazingly nice. Our cruise director, ADAM, was very nice and was always available to speak with anyone and kept all passengers aware of what was going on during our trip. However, the decor was a little outdated and should be

    We have cruised Carnival many times before and have always had a great experience. But this cruise did not live up to what we have come to expect from our prior cruises on Carnival. I guess its worth noting that this ship is headed for dry dock in just a couple of weeks for
