  1. Wow! You packed a lot into the five hours that we were there. Since we were there on the Inspiration a few weeks prior we didn't feel the need to go out this time. Hope you had a great cruise. We sure did! 😃
  2. We hung out in the cabin until it was time for dinner. Here is tonight’s dinner menu….. We both had the caprese salad. Patti also had a Caesar salad….. I also had the steamed mussels and the spicy alligator fritters….. For our mains Patti had the penne shrimp and bacon, and I had the shrimp creole….. For our desserts Patti had the carrot cake and I had the key lime cheesecake stuffed apple….. It’s always a sad time when the waiters sing “leaving on a Fun Ship”, especially after a two week cruise….. After a walk down the Promenade we decided to call it a cruise, head back to the cabin, and put our luggage in the hallway. We have pictures of the luggage filled hallways but they are too depressing to post. 😡 Coming up next: Goodbye Carnival Splendor, it’s sad to see you go!
  3. There are plenty of photo ops on the pier….. I hear a knock on the door. The Players Club has sent us some cookies….. After an hour or so, Patti is back on board the Splendor. Here are some more views of the area from our balcony….. To be continued…..
  4. Patti catches me hanging out on the balcony….. The Carnival Splendor docked in Ensenada….. Here are some more views around the terminal area….. Patti catches Captain La Fauci on the pier in street clothes….. To be continued…..
  5. They open the gates and the tour buses and vans start rolling into the port….. The dock workers tie the Splendor up to the pier….. The tour buses and vans are lined up and ready to go..... We have arrived about an hour early today, and soon the passengers are streaming off of the ship….. Patti decides that she’s going to get off the ship and check out the terminal area. I’m going to stay on board have a few more beers and finish packing. Patti is off the ship. Here are a few views around the terminal….. To be continued…..
  6. The Ensenada Pilot Boat approaches to drop off the Pilot….. We are approaching the pier where we will be docking today….. I’m enjoying a beer while I watch the action from our balcony….. Here are some views of the port area….. To be continued…..
  7. Lee auctions off the Splendor coin….. It’s time to Groove for St. Jude….. Afterwards, we head back to the cabin for the sad task of packing our suitcases. About an hour later…. Land Ho! We are approaching Ensenada….. To be continued…..
  8. Lee shows off the Splendor coin and the autographed itinerary map that are going to be auctioned off….. Lee poses with the hula dance instructors….. Ruther and I pose with the teddy bear….. Ruther makes Patti another special mocha chocolate getaway….. Lee auctions off the autographed itinerary map….. To be continued…..
  9. Here is my last towel invasion picture….. These are the towel hut ladies….. To start the Morning Show Lee interviews the finalists of the Lip Sync Battle….. Lee also interviews Tom again….. Here is our final towel creation of the cruise……. Patti was a little hungry so she went up to the Lido for some breakfast. I made my way to the Splendido Pool Bar to hang out with my buds for the last time. When the Grille opened for lunch I went over and grabbed a few cheeseburgers and some fries. Patti joined me up on Lido to Groove for St. Jude…… The line for contributions was long….. Cheeky Charlie takes our donation from Patti…… Patti gets a t-shirt and a teddy bear….. To be continued…..
  10. The towel animal invasion came in all shapes and sizes….. To be continued…..
  11. Day # 23 (May 10th) - Ensenada, Mexico (3 pm to 8 pm). Here are today’s Fun Times….. The map channel on the television shows us approaching the west coast of Mexico….. We were up at 7 am to a partly sunny day. The seas are fairly calm and the temperature is 65 degrees. Here are the views forward and aft from our balcony….. Patti was going to check out the arts and crafts in the El Morocco lounge then meet me at the Morning Show. I grabbed the camera and made my way up to the Lido to grab a cup of coffee. Here’s a view of the Liner Pool all the way aft….. As I approached the mid ship Splendido Pool, I could see that there was an invasion of towel animals….. To be continued…..
  12. Hey Barb! Always glad to have you around. Keep at it. You'll catch up! Thanks so much for reading. Glad you're enjoying it. You have quite the resume! Thanks for reading. The next segment will be posted tomorrow. We're almost at the end.
  13. Yes, many of the Port of Call selections were pretty good, and the portions were huge. 😀
  14. The menus were pretty good and with few exceptions were not repeated. The only things that I didn't like were the flatbreads. They came out chewy and undercooked. ☹
