We had an awesome time going to Ensenada Mexico and back to the port. It was a smooth ride 95% of the time. They should specify what charges are being made and how everything is conducted like tips and gratuity. I thought we were suppose to tip everything we do like from eating and ordering room service. They had a service charge of the $36 for our three trip that was added to our final bill without letting us know ahead of time that was how tips were distributed throughout the boat. What i did like was that you can add a credit card to your boat card which is the card to get into your room and used for ordering food at the bar, gambling and anything you might want. It is pretty easy to just add a credit card to your account. One of the things to enjoy when you get to ensenada, is the la bufadora but most people don't purchase it through the cruise as they almost triple the price. We bought ours on the bus where they took us from the boat to the local tour destination for about $15 for the tour. We spent alot of money eating outside food there too which was good from what the tour guide recommended. The food on the boat is unlimited also and everything they provide was delicious and you can order more than one entree when dining. Order more appetizers too as they come pretty small.
