Ensenada Mexico Cruise

William asks…

Can you gamble on a cruise from Hawaii to Ensenada Mexico?

I heard there is no gambling on the ship due to being in US waters. I guess it will be a money saver if that is the case!

Tijuana answers:

Yes, you can gamble on a cruise between Hawaii and Mexico. There are a lot of miles between the two places. US waters are 12 miles from land. Have fun….

Joseph asks…

Is it safe to go on a cruise to Ensenada, mexico in October 2010?

My family and I are going on a cruise during the first weekend of October 2010. My parents are extremely worried about getting off the ship due to all the kidnappings and killings that they have heard about on the news. My sis and I, along with our fiances came to Ensenada last year in Oct 2009, and had a GREAT time with no problems at all! Can someone set the record straight for me please? Is it safe this year?

Tijuana answers:

I live in San Diego on the weekdays for my work, but on the weekends I am down in Ensenada as I own a home there, my family and I have been out at the port lately a lot and see the cruise ships docked frequently. The streets are safe, I see many american tourist on a frequent basis. It is safe to say that you should be okay. You will enjoy your time, I often vist the Blowhole and there as well there are many tourists and are having fun. Hope this helps!

Maria asks…

Why do most Hawaii cruises either departs from or ends at the mainland?

I mean, there are a lot of people who would want to go on a Hawaii cruise but only have a week. Fortunately, there is one one-week cruise on Norwegian’s Pride of America that only travels between the islands but most of the cruises either start or end in the mainland, whether it’s Vancouver, L.A. or Ensenada, lasting for roughly about two weeks. Many people don’t get two weeks of vacation and/or rather take the plane in and out of Hawaii and not spend days and days cruising.

Tijuana answers:

That is caused by the Jones act. Foreign flagged ships must stop in a foreign port. Most ships to Hawaii stop in Canada or Mexico.

The NCL Pride of America is one of the few American flagged ships. When a ship is American flagged there are more costs and restrictions. For example the crew must be American.

I have been on the Golden Princess from LA to Hawaii and back 3 times and will go again this December. I love the days at sea.
