We should have gotten off even if to wander through downtown Ensenada just to break through the blahs that descended on us.
Tho G seemed to be happy, I felt the day was meaningless and endless. I read two books and got a nap in. We floated for a while in the adults only hot tub. The day was beautiful. Dinner was ok. G won a good amount in the casino, and that was good tho he couldn’t breathe later.
We had been to Ensenada before. What we hadn’t seen was the Carnival Inspiration. Carnival had hired Joe Farcus to design the interiors of their second ship. Today the Carnival ships are unique because of Mr. Farcus’s out of this world architectural design. Many don’t like what he does. They are revolted by his designs, and they call these over the top ships “Farcusized.” Carnival now has new management, and Farcus has been moved over to the Costa Fleet.
The Carnival Inspiration is a Fantasy class ship and one of the older ships in Carnival’s 24 ship fleet. There was nothing at all conservative about Farcus’s thinking when he designed this ship. Glowing neon lines outlining each deck in the atrium. Rows of catydids outside the showroom, and electric tubes in the Lido…just some of his dramatic thinking. Here is a quick view of his work on this ship.
