Sail Date: Jan 2023
Cabin: Grand Suite

Honestly, the only reason I took this cruise is because I'm about to hit Platinum, and I wanted to get more sail days in to get to 75 a little sooner.

It was an alright cruise, but I will admit the weather took "some of the wind out of my sails" (forgive the pun). Weather kept our cruise from going to Catalina Island, so we went directly to Ensenada. Three sea days on a four day cruise is a bit much.

No blame to Carnival. Mother Nature did this.

Cabin Review

Grand Suite

The Grand Suite is a great accommodation. The size of the room kept me spoiled and the jacuzzi bathtub and shower was pretty cool too. My room steward, I Made was fantastic and very attentive.

Port Reviews


I've been to Ensenada a few times but it had been quite a few years so I opted for the La Bufadora trip.
