Ensenada Mexico Weather

Sandy asks…

Is it warm in Mexico in December?

cuz i’m going soon!

Tijuana answers:

I just want to say that depends, if you are going to the north regions of Mexico, well the weather is warmer than the USA, but still cold, I live at Chihuahua city, and by december frost is very common, most of the houses have some kind of heather system, and often it snows during the winter.

In the areas around the center temperature depends a lot in how high is the elevation of the city where you going, like Toluca or Pachuca, those cities often gets temperatures around the freezing point during the winter, since both are very elevated, Toluca is close to 10000 feet above sea level.

The low lands and ports of Mexico below the tropic of Cancer have a very nice warm weather during the winter , like Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, Cancun, etc.

Mazatlan and Cabo can get a little chilli at night during the winter, but not during the day time…Ensenada or Rocky Point since they are up north they get chillier.

William asks…

Will i have a fun and memorable trip on this cruise?

Ok, so my family and i are planning to go on the Carvinal Paridse cruise in April 09 for 4 nights. This cruise goes to Ensenada, Mexico and Catalina Island. I was looking at the cruise and saw a somwhat small pool and in videos i saw that i was VERY windy. But the reason why i dont know if it will be fun is becasue my family and i dont drink and dont go to casinos or clubs. And all the people who liked this cruise said they liked the clubs the most. Also i have a 16 and 13 year old children and was wondering if they would like it the questions are

is it hot or cold in april on the cruise?
can we swim at the island or ensnada?
what can we do for entertemient?
will my kids enjoy?
and you are welcomed to say anything else!!!
please tell me what you think and how you liked it!!
thank you vary much!

Tijuana answers:

The size of the pools is usually small because of the limited area deck space aboard a ship.

While there could be windy and even storms its not normal for hot weather cruises. But modern big size ships handle weather well and the captain is well trained in awoiding the worst storms. He rather skip a port of call than going into a storm!

Youll find lots to do other than nightclubs and discos! Cruise ships offer a varity of things to do including spas, shoping and theathre like enterteinment! Your kids will most likely enjoy the kids and teens clubs about the ship.

I think it warm enough to go swiming on beaches just remember that if youre go on youre own its your responsibility to be back on the ship at least half an hour before departure or youll be leaved behind. But I recomend you to take some of the orginazed shore excursions that include swiming at some of the paradise beaches. Johan.

James asks…

How much will a cruise actually cost me?

My fiance and I are want to go on a 3 day cruise to Ensenada, Mexico from Carnival. We’ve never been on a cruise before and have been trying to look on the internet but the information just seems overwhelming. So:

1) what is actually included in the quote and what do I have to pay extra for?

2) what documentation do we need for embarkment?

3) is paying extra for an oceanview worth it?

4) what are the dangers of getting a guaranteed cabin?

5) if we get a room on the bottom deck, is that where the engine might be?

Thank you!

Tijuana answers:

Sounds like you need to do some research before you decide on a cruise. There are books at your bookstore and/or library that will give you a general idea of what’s involved. After you’ve clarified your options, a good travel agent will help you complete your plans.

I would suggest that if you decide to do the cruise you mentioned, that you not base your decision on whether to ever cruise again based on that. A three-day cruise is basically a “party” cruise, as you don’t really have time to go much of anywhere – especially from southern California! And especially on Carnival! And a cruise to Ensenada is not a cruise to a desirable port of call….

However, to answer your questions:

[1] The price you see advertised is for the lowest cabin category, and will generally be on the lowest deck of the ship and in the least-desirable location on that deck [under the kitchen, for example, or under the theater or casino]. It will not include the taxes, fees and port charges, usually. You will pay extra for: alcohol and soft drinks, shore excursions, spa treatments, bingo, tips [about $10 per passenger per day will be added to your account automatically – and it’s well worth it], the “premium” restaurants [if any].

[2] You should have a passport, although you may be able to get away with just a driver’s license. Go to Carnival’s website and clarify this and/or the State Department’s website – the regulations have changed recently.

[3] Paying for an oceanview is “worth it” if you think it is. It’s nice to be able to tell whether it’s night or day, what the weather looks like, etc., and an oceanview sometimes doesn’t cost that much more than an inside, depending on location of each. You won’t be spending much time in your cabin, most likely.

[4] The “danger” of getting a guarantee cabin is that you may get put in an “undesirable” location. However, you may also be put in a more desirable cabin than if you had paid the minimum rate for a chosen cabin. The guarantee is that you will get at least the type of cabin you booked – i.e. Inside, oceanview, etc. You will not likely get placed in an oceanview if you booked a guaranteed inside, however.

[5] The lowest deck is likely to be the furthest from the activities and dining venues, depending on where the Promenade and Lido decks are located on that particular ship. This deck is usually above the deck with crew quarters, not the engine room. However, if you are prone to seasickness, the lower the deck [and the more mid-ship] the better, in terms of feeling the motion of the ship. The most important thing, location-wise, is what is above you, below you and around you. Those blank white areas on the deck plans indicate working areas for the ship, e.g. The galley, storage for the stewards’ equipment, etc.
