Ensenada Cruise.... or just a Relaxing Weekend
***9/14 update: Hi everyone, I saw some of you RSVP yes but haven't contacted Carnival to book your room. Good news - it's not too late. So far we have 24 confirmed going. Come join the fun! If you want to go you book by calling[masked], Booking #2BHP22 under Anna's Group. :)*** Hey Folks. I know some of us expressed interest to do a short Ensenada cruise together. As you probably figured, with me, this will be a really calm cruise with discussions of the latest books we read.... (hahaha). Well, if the book reading sounds inviting, let's go cruising!!! What's cool about cruising? We get to eat all we want (almost). There is food 24-7 (goat cheese pizza at 5AM is my favorite). Of course, then there is the fun ppl to hang out with and cool water slide to ride down. THEN, there is the formal night with formal photos. Group photos with all of us in some fancy clothes? That's sound pretty darn cool! One of the minor cons about cruising? They make money off you drinking. Everyone is allowed to take on 1 bottle of wine and 12 aluminum cans of soda or juice. Other than that? They want you to buy drinks on board. The cost is $376.40 per person for interior room (2 to a room so $752.80 per room). Deposit is $25 per person right now until May 12 ($100 by May 24, and paid in full by July 23). Per room, we will get 1 bottle of red wine, $25 per stateroom credit, and we get to attend a share cocktail party together! If you need a roommate, please lock in your spot via carnival and send me an email. I will do my best to pair you up with someone! :) Now, here is a little breakdown of the cruise: Friday: September 21st. Get on the cruise between 12pm to 4pm. We can eat lunch and hang out by the pool! Of course, settle into our room too. Then, there is the night club at night, piano bar, sports bar, casino, Broadway show, midnight dirty comedy, and lots of fun stuff. Saturday: September 22nd. Fun Day at Sea. You can book a massage, hit the gym, sun bath, sleep in, casino, eat lots of food, relax by the pool, read a book.... and all kind of stuff. This evening is also FORMAL NIGHT. Get dressed up and let's take them cool formal photos together!!! :) Then, the evening of fun can repeat itself! :) Sunday: September 23rd. Port of Call: Ensenada. Because I done this cruise several times, I normally just eat at my favor restaurant in town. But, with you party people, I mean, book readers, maybe we can sign up for wine country. Upon our return to Ensenada, hit up Papas-n-Beer before walking SOBER back on the boat... The night will repeat itself. We will go check out photos tonight to see if we want to buy any!!! :) Monday: September 24th. Debarkation. "We are getting off the cruise bright and early on Monday morning, 9/24 so you can still make it to work if you want to go to work that day (I plan on going to work that day)" Debarkation process will start around 7AM. With your own carry on, you can walk off around 7am-8am. If you "checked-out" your bag the night before, you will depart as they call your floor. If you stay on ship a little longer, you can enjoy breakfast, etc. Let me know if you have any questions!!! I will also provide more info to those going. Let's Go Cruising! NOTE #1: Need help with roommates? Let me know! Note #2: Only one electrical outlet per room. Bring either power strip per room or a split device charger.

What we're about

If you are looking for fun social events, new adventures or are new in town and are looking to form new relationships through socials with the great people on Meetup, you have found the right group!!!! We are a group of active professionals seeking adventures beyond the daily grind, building new friendships through social networking, and/or looking to meet that special someone along the way. First and foremost though, our focus is building a circle of friends and making connections!

If you are new to LA or have been here your whole life and your social circle diminished over time, this is the place to expand your social circle again. We have fun activities and social events that make making friends as easy as 1-2-3! :)

Of course, if you are single and are looking to find that special someone, what better way is there than through fun activities where you can learn about each other without the pressure of the uncomfortable first date? Our events are low pressure and low stress. It's like hanging out with old friends.

Now, what else should you know about this group? If you are adventurous and love the outdoors, you are in luck. We absolutely love hiking and camping in the summer and snowboarding in the winter. No worries though if you are more into the cultural events and museums that Los Angeles has to offer. We enjoy broadening our minds with arts and culture. LA is one of the most dynamic cities with more cultural diversity than most. We will explore LA and all its glory!

What if you enjoy the occasional socializing over a drink at a bar or relaxing by a bonfire at the beach? We have those too. For those that enjoy a good party here and there. So do we. We like theme parties such as masquerade party, mustache and wig party, and nerd and geek party. We also have fun celebrations like Halloween and New Year Eve Bash. Oh, let's not forget, we love wine and cheese and delicious and unique beers. We have events to cover all grounds including Game Night (Cards Against Humanity, Jenga, Uno or Exploding Kittens anyone??)

Ultimately, our main focus is connections! We are a group of fun professionals that continue to expand our minds through relationships, events and life experiences! JOIN US!
