I love cruising. But by no means would judge cruising by the 3 day Carnival Ensenada Cruise. It's like the difference between Motel 6 and the Ritz, both provide you a place to sleep but one is bare bones.
If you are looking for a quick get-away that is cheap and fun, Take this cruise. On the other hand if you have always heard about how spoiled you get on a cruise, this is not the trip to take.
For a few hundred bucks you get all you can eat and all you can party. This trip is full of the young and young at heart. I go on it every couple of years with "the girls" and always have fun. The ship is older and not as kept up as many cruise lines. The constant turn around (2.5 cruises a week) probably wears the staff out. The food is nothing spectacular but plentiful. The entertainment is not Vegas nightclubs but still enjoyable.
All in all we had a great time. But keep in mind we went for "A GIRLS WEEKEND OUT" Not a quite high class trip.
Ports of Call
Pros: Inexpensive party cruise
Cons: Cleanliness not high on the agenda
