Cruise to Ensenada, Mexico & Catalina Island on Carnival Inspiration

The Bateman family took a cruise to Ensenada, Mexico & Catalina Island aboard the cruise ship Carnival Inspiration for Spring Break 2015. We ate well, swam, shopped and sang karaoke on board. We dipped our feet in the Pacific Ocean and rented a golf cart to explore the port of Avalon on Catalina Island. We practiced our Spanish and haggled for blankets and ponchos in the seaside town of Ensenada, Mexico. Leaving the ship, we headed for a day at Disneyland.

For all of you guys who are going on this cruise, I’m warning you, once you reach Ensenada Mexico, the people who work at the shops will contantly ask you to buy their stuff, and most of people will rip you off. Btw, a lot of things are really expensive there

Jesse Machuca says:

ALP'ie says:

Just came back from this exact cruise, I loved Catalina, but everything else was just not worth it. Sure, it sounds cheap but everything considered — Cruise Fare $239 + $82 Frees/ Port Charge + $49 Gratuity + $76 Parking + Gas, that came to $448 per person (2 People) without drinks. Expedia had a package trip to Oahu, Hawaii for 4 days was $464 for the same time period + Food Obviously.

Excellent commentary, editing, and professional-grade filming.  We’ve got this cruise booked in Sept and am looking forward to it, even more so now after your story here.  Thank you for making such a light-hearted video! 🙂

great video loved it. just like the comment below my family and I will be doing the same cruise lol. its my 3 year olds second cruise and I have to say the part where your daughter cried on the debarkation day brought tears to my eyes as I can see my daughter being the same way. just as you did though we will be hitting Disneyland right after. only differnece in our cruise is that day 2 will be the sea day then Avalon then Ensenada before coming back. Don’t understand why as its the first time for me in 5 cruises done in that order and I could see plenty of hung over people on debarkation day. Anyways thanks for sharing the video.

What an awesome video. Thanks for posting this little vignette showcasing the fun you and your lovely family had on the cruise ship. I’m on the fence about whether a 3-4 day cruise will be worthwhile.
