- Cabin Type: Aft-View Extended Balcony
Next we anchored in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where we took the "Coastal Cruise and Whale Watching" tour. Without a doubt this was the best tour of the entire cruise. We saw whales and dolphins and the margaritas were very good. Then on to Long Beach, CA for a smooth debarkation. The water was smooth except for one night where we had 70 knot winds with 15-20 foot seas. The Captain prepared us well ahead of time and told us that this was coming at about 4 am and would last until about 10 am. The Carnival Miracle rocked and rolled but most of us slet thru it, but I am sure that some people got sick.
The food was wonderful. My wife and I had a chance to attend the Chef's Table with Chef de cuisine, Wellington Dias. This was a great experience. The Chef prepared wonderful dishes and the wine flowed freely. The food service in the Main Dining room was wonderful and our head wait staff was Simmona. We were lucky enough to have had Simmona on the Carnival Spirit a few years ago. Simmona and her team were good. Elvis, not the real Elvis, ran the dining room and did a very good job. The room stewards were superb. Last and not least was the Cruise Director, Tex. His wife was along on this repositioning cruise soe he was interacting with the folks on the cruise and participating like one of us, which was great. For one evening show, he and his wife sat across from my wife and I. Tex and his staff really did a great job. The Captain kept us all informed about what was happening at sea. Without a doubt, this cruise was the best of our 24 cruises. Thank you Carnival Cruise Line for such a wonderful experience.
