4 Night Baja Mexico (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 22, 2010
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The ship/cruise was great for families. When I booked this cruise, the person that booked it for me over the phone told me it will be a cruise for singles. It was not the case. Even though I had good time, it was not fabulous like I expected. I really wanted to meet single people and I asked several times if this was a cruise for that. I never had the correct information over the phone. Then, when you are in the cruise they tell you is all about families. If there are other cruises for singles, and I was willing to pay for that, why lied?

La Bufadora was fun, but renting the motors was the best

we rented a bike to go around the island. If you are in good shape is a nice idea

Pros: The shows were espectacular

Cons: I bought it to meet singles and there were only families. Staff does not speak spanish and I was a translator for two families
