THIS IS NOT ANNOUNCED AND IS NOT FINALIZED
We did this last year in May and it was EPIC. A touch cold out at sea so doing it at the perfect time now!
I will start off by saying there are PLENTY of cruise thingies on Meetup. Especially the Booze Cruise to Ensenada. . . Ours will be decidedly different and not like the others.
First of all, . . . our price. Let's get to that first. The base cabin is $344 per person, double occupancy for an interior cabin. And there is an additional $89 in port taxes and fees. Some of the meetups might even be less. That's OK. They charge less for October as it's freezing at sea and in Ensenada too. Ours is the ideal time and low cost.
There are upgrades to ocean view cabins or single occupancy but that's all incremental increases depending upon your needs. Get a friend to come with or we will do roommate matching.
What really makes our trip unique is our special treatment.
We will have an open bar Cocktail Party Mixer hosted by the ship for our group (unlimited drinks)
We will get reserved seating together for the formal dining room at our own tables.
We will be doing our own activities on the boat too such as a scavenger hunt.
Best of all a great group of like-minded people from our Meetup, ready for play and fun!
But that's not the best part.
The BEST part are OUR shore excursions in Mexico.
For only $30 per person we will have our own vans and drivers exclusive and private for us for our shore excursion.
On shore we will have
Zip Line Canopy Tour $22
Horseback Riding $30
They are broken up so you can pick and choose and only pay for what you do. To see more about Las Canadas Resort http://www.lascanadas.com/en/ http://www.lascanadas.com/en/Air_CanopyTour.php
Since we are organizing it, NONE of this is at tourist prices, and no tour operator markups either.
But wait!!! How about a wine tasting an visiting the renown Wineries and having a Winery tour and tasting? An olive oil tasting too? Sure!!!
Since we have our own drivers we will do that too! http://santo-tomas.com/ for example.
Our drivers will stop in town and do shopping on the way back to the boat too.
So it's all around a great meetup. This is NOT like the other meetup cruises you see. Care to join?

Let's look at the "Day at Sea" part first:
The boat (ship) has all the things that make a cruise ship fun: 9-hole mini golf course, WaterWorks (waterslide park), a tropical resort-style pool - and when you need some pampering and quiet time - a Serenity Retreat area. It also has casino, comedy shows, stage shows, bars, nightclubs, dancing, live music, spa type services, and more.
And, as always...the delicious dining, entertainment, friendly service
