Cheap Cruises From Long Beach: Mexico Vs Catalina Island

Cheap Cruises From Long Beach

Cheap cruises from Long Beach are on the fun ships of Carnival, the exclusive cruise line of the popular port in southern California. We know the cruise line, but where do you want to go? Because of its location, the port at Long Beach is the gateway to such places as Catalina Island and the lovely Baja Peninsula of Mexico which has long been a glorious getaway for sun seekers and scuba enthusiasts alike.

Cruises from Long Beach can take the form of short jaunts of 4 days that go to Catalina Island and Ensenada, 3 day getaways that visit the sunny Ensenada only, or longer 7 day Mexican Riviera jaunts that go to Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta.

Because Catalina lies only 22 miles off the coast of California, it is a popular destination for locals and vacationers alike. A Catalina Island cruise on Carnival makes for a great last minute getaway or mini vacation where you can take in the famous Avalon Theatre, hike part of the Trans Catalina Trail, try your luck at the casinos or go whale watching.

Mexico cruises from Long Beach on the other hand are longer in duration as they travel to the tip of Baja, taking you to a mecca for scuba diving and the white sandy beaches the area is famous for. The Mexican Riviera region is made up of twenty cities and lagoons on the west coast of the country, a scenic cruise down the coast from southern California.

Carnival’s cheap cruises from Long Beach to Mexico are also on sale, with their 7 night outing that stops in Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta, leaving April 7th, 2013 priced at just $639 per person.
