  3. Carnival Inspiration
Wife and I, both in our 60's, just wanted to get away for a few days. I know most people think these 3 day cruises are booze cruises. This is the secound 3 day cruise for us, both on the Inspiration. Did not see any falling down drunk or drink till you puck types. The crowd was younger, lots of 20/30 year olds, but all seemed to behave and all were having fun. Ship was clean, staff was all smiles, and service was great. We ate all 3 nights in the MDR. We had Your time dining. Loved our table and server from the first night, so requested and had the same table and servers every night. Elana, table 181, was fantastic. Food was good, served hot (or cold in some cases). Only port on this cruise is Ensenada. We have visited this port many times. Been to the downtown shopping district, blowhole, wine tour. This time we took the Carnival tour " Gold Coast tour". It was ok, but would not do it again. Tour bus ride up the coast to a small bar/restraunt. A free drink and you could buy lunch. Great views, but no beach access. Spend about an hour, then back to Ensenada. Sea day was just what we wanted, just relax. We will do this cruise again.

Nice weekend getaway
