foxesden1 Posted August 20, 2012 #1 Share Posted August 20, 2012 Sorry I took so long to get around to doing a TR on this one.. I have uploaded all documents that we were given - CCL really should look into some paperless options.. they would save BILLIONS of dollars I am sure.. Getting Ready to go! This was to be my 2nd CCL, a 3 night Baja out of Long Beach. It was a ladies cruise, so we were really looking forward to some time to our selves. We have anywhere from four to five women that we travel with at different times - one of whom lives in the UK.. and the other is a Danish National who was sans passport.. so it ended up being three people. This was our first year NOT doing Vegas.. and I am pretty sure we will not be doing a Carnival Cruise ladies trip again.. at least not everyone.. but more on that later. We booked a early saver rate and ended up getting about $220 in on board credit, plus I had $50 on board credit from a Future Carnival Vacation I bought on my prior cruise in January. Regardless of promotions, I divide the money up equally between the three women. So everyone had a fair amount of on board credit for a three nighter. Everyone bought a bottle of wine, so we were ready to go! (Now I will add at this point.. a few years ago we started taking photos with us of our friends who were not able to join us.. and we try to make up funny stories of them doing crazy things.. so my review will be more of a story based on the photos which have L and C doing crazy things.. very much NOT my typical review.. ) As you can sell L and S were ready to go when I woke up.. I think they in fact slept in my car.. We live in So Cal, so its about a two hour drive (on a good day.. ) up to Long Beach.. so we got a early start.. wanted to arrive at the Queen Mary for 9:30 (in hind site, so not worth it we were all in bed by 9!) Now L being from the UK.. had to stop to make a phone call home.. you can see her sister C (in the sun glasses) is more then happy to allow L a piece of home.. outside of the Queen Mary.. C and A were happy to stop and pose for a photo with the ladies.. We were given Zone 1 boarding and started to wait outside.. Their were quite a few groups ahead of us, but we made it on board with drinks by 11:30 at the latest. (I think.. ) As you can tell from L and S faces.. they are THRILLED to be going on their first cruise.. So much so, they offered to hold our seats while we went to the buffet for lunch..
