About Unc

Addicted to cruising since sailing on the Holiday in 1994. I have been fortunate to sail with Carnival 15 times on 15 different ships, even though I can't list them all here. I keep a packing list, my passport & my water shoes in my suitcase so I'm always ready to go.

Carnival Inspiration

March 2016 - Carnival Inspiration to Mexico

Part II

This was the second half of our back-to-back cruises.  Six or seven days is our bare minimum for a cruise in order to justify the cost of flying to the port.  Since we were able to book the same cabin for both legs, we didn't have to pack and unpack.  We were personally escorted off the ship, through customs and back on the ship and treated like royalty.  This was our fourth stop in Ensenada in a year so we only got off the ship to go for a short walk.  There were several large, and at times rowdy, groups of passengers celebrating bachelor and bachelorette parties.

Carnival Inspiration

February 2016 - Carnival Inspiration to Mexico

Finally got to Catalina

It was charming and laid back and the weather was perfect.  Last year it was too rough for us to be tendered so we weren't able to go ashore.  We dropped off our rental car at Hertz a few blocks away and they were nice enough to shuttle us to the ship.  Due to the small size of the ship and the port, boarding and disembarking were a breeze.  We always enjoy the food and entertainment, which don't vary that much among the other Carnival ships we've been on.

Unc's Tips

Carnival Inspiration Carnival Inspiration - Be careful in Ensenada and don't do anything stupid. We saw a passenger detained by the Mexican authorities for carrying a large plastic bag filled with an unknown liquid through security. They emptied the bag and he started arguing with them when they confiscated it.
