Sail Date: April 01, 2010
Ship: Carnival Spirit
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group

The San Diego to Ensenada transport and waiting was so poorly organized it makes Carnival look decidedly second class. If you wish to debark early I recommend throwing your luggage over the side and then jumping. It's the only way you might get help from the Staff. The dining room staff and entertainment staff worked very hard to make up for the bad start and are to be commended. However the start and ending of the cruise makes it impossible for me to recommend Carnival.
