C2A Ensenada, Mexican Cruise Recap
April 7th, 2005

Events Coordinator

This past weekend I went on C2A's cruise, my first cruise ever. This ship was huge, and even though I did a walkthrough prior to this trip, I was still lost.

Friday, I got on the ship in the afternoon and refused to look out the window for fear that I might already get seasick even if we were still docked in the harbor. After we set sail, I was actually surprised I didn't feel it. Once, I had to setup for our mixer which was in the front of the ship I was about ready to fall to the floor cause I was feeling the motion sickness, so I popped a Dramamine (lord bless the soul of the maker of those pills!!).

Friday night we had a "Lock & Key" mixer where we had the girls with padlocks on their lanyards and guys with keys on theirs. The guys had to find girl with the lock that opened with their key. I was amazed how fast people were able to unlock theres. It was a great way for people to get to know each other. After, our mixer we had a lovely dinner only the start of many meals to come. After our dinner we went to the casino and the club and didn't leave the club until 3am and played poker with guys until 4am. Repeat that scenario 2x for each night that followed.

Saturday, we docked in Ensenada, Mexico. First thing I see when I step outside is this huge flag. Seriously you could throw it up in the sky and cover that huge hole in the ozone layer. It was my first time in Mexico and had no idea what to expect....boy was I shocked =o. I found it interesting how the downtown shopping area has three pharmacies on every block, carrying all your pharmaceutical needs at a very low price. Also, all the shops that carried PRADO and FUCCI, I didn't find that too unbelievable because you can find that stuff in Santee Alley in downtown LA.

We then all met up in Papas & Beer, not knowing anything about this place and I wish that people had warned me. I stepped into the place and within two minutes I was ambushed by the workers with their whistles getting ready to force a shot of tequila down my throat. I was like "NOoooooooo!!!!" I tried posting myself down to the ground, but then the crowd started chanting and you know when that happens, they¡¯re not going to let it go until you do it. Reluctantly I allowed them to shove the shot down my throat and to my surprise did not know that they would hang me upside down as well. After I had downed the shot I thought "Hey that wasn't too bad," let's face it people I'm 95lbs there was no way I could handle a shot and not end up yaking. Yay for me!!! I didn't yak.

Saturday night was a really lovely night, everyone was all dressed up. It was really nice seeing all the guys in their suits and all the ladies in their cutest dresses. We had to have been the best dressed group in the dining room.

Sunday was a nice day on the ship, especially since we were scared that it was going to rain, but it turned out to be a bright and sunny day. I even got a tan, and I wasn¡¯t even trying to tan. People really had fun just relaxing sun bathing and doing activities around the ship. Before dinner we had our Poker Tournament and man was that a great game, I however, was the first one out...no fair =( but I guess it's okay since I won $75 in slots and only played one 3 line credit. Yay!!! =)

Sunday was our last night and was really sad because we were not going to see each other on the ship the next day. It was really nice to see people exchanging their contact information so they could keep in touch after. It was also our last night to party, and no it did not stop us from partying until 4am. Which we did, and it was nice to see everyone in the group at the club one last time just having fun getting their "groove on" on the dance floor.

I had a really good time and our group was really great, I had a great time being their host. If you guys are reading this and you were on the cruise.....Thanks and I hope to see all of you on the next one.

P.S....It's day 2 off of the ship and my head is still bobbing and swaying.

Wow!! I had one of the best vacations ever this past weekend. Congrats to Click 2 Asia and 7 Blue Seas for the awesome cruise that they put together. It was my first cruise and first time to Ensenada. Papa's and Beers was unreal!! I was initially talked into going on this trip by a friend and was not really into the whole idea until I got onboard. Alex from 7 Blue Seas was a lot of fun and Denise did a FANTASTIC job as the leader of her first cruise! I highly recommend the trip and will look forward to another Mexico trip or even a Carribean cruise? It was even better that we had a large group to party and hang out with. Looking forward to the poker tournament this weekend. Thanks everyone! Justin

I went on this cruise last year, and it was great! My favorite was the amazing views and sunsets on the patio deck of the ship - with no pollution around for miles - the view was breathtaking! It was a great escape.

I had a FABULOUS time on the cruise. I decided to go on the cruise to celebrate my April 25th birthday. I have to say, it turned out to be the best birtday celebration to date! At first, I was a little hesitant to go on the cruise because I have never been to Calfornia or Mexico, and I didn't know one single person going on the trip. I am sooo glad I went. Everyone I met was so welcoming, and within a few hours, strangers began to turn into friends. There were so many things to do, and I made it a point to spend time with as many different people as I could. Many thanks to Alex, and Denise was absolutely WONDERFUL!! They both went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. I can't say enough about the people in our group. Everyone was attractive and successful in many different ways. I hope to maintain relationships with everyone I connected with. I will always remember my weekend aboard the Paradise, and I am looking forward to the next cruise. Kim

I had such a good time on the cruise I can't wait till the next one. Everyone was so nice, more importantly I think it's a great way to connect with people you would not have otherwise met. I feel very blessed to have met the people I did and connect with special people I would definately recommend this to everyone. Thank you C2A and seven blue seas and of course everyone that made all these special moments in my life happen... for life is all these moments that we savior in passing.

Hey C2A members!... I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Denise and my friend/co-worker Alex for being such great hosts on the ship. This was my first C2A cruise and first time on the Paradise. I have to say it was fun and pretty interesting - well, more like Papas & Beer was interesting! Hahaha! Well, I met some real cool peeps on this cruise and I hope to see them on the next C2A cruise. Bye for now and take care y'all!

It was a great three days on the cruise from the beginning to the end. Denise and Alex did a nice job of helping everyone to get to know one another from the beginning - the lock and key idea was neat! I was very glad to meet everyone - everyone was quite open and friendly and the only real competitive time was during the poker tourney :) If anything, the one downside was that the cruise only lasted a weekend. I'll certainly be looking forward to the next one.
