We embarked on another journey to Ensenada, Mexico via Carnival Inspiration. This is probably our 3rd time on this ship and on to the same destination. The only difference is that we traveled with our best friends this time to celebrate Philip's birthday weekend. Although it was just a weekend cruise, it was packed with so much fun and with great company. It felt like we had great moments that we will cherish forever. Spending time with best friends is refreshing. We shared a lot of fun, laughter and excitement. The itinerary begins from the port of Long Beach, CA on Friday, April 20th. As we checked in the Long Beach Cruise Terminal, we were amazed by the efficient check in process.
We couldn't believe how fast it took us to check in and how quiet the terminal was because there was no line at all. You go through the check in process within a few minutes and then you are ready to board the ship. Kudos to Carnival's excellent organization for making it a very easy and pain-free check-in process. After boarding the ship, we enjoyed having a sumptuous lunch at the buffet on Lido Deck. We for sure didn't want to miss out on taking advantage of our Cheers Package (all-you-can-drink alcoholic beverage) so we had to start our cruise with some fun drinks. It's the safest way to get the party started since no one is driving while on board.
Philip and Andrew are hardworking individuals who value their profession but also enjoy a little bit of fun as time and budget permits. Please check in often to see where they will explore and share their adventures next.
