Checking In: Carnival Cruise Imagination - Halloween Voyage

Carnival Cruise Imagination Baja Mexico
This post is in collaboration with Carnival Cruise. However as always, opinions are my own.

If you've been following my blog the past few weeks, you know I've partnered with Carnival Cruise for 3 posts (10 Things To Know Before A Cruise & 10 Things To Pack For A Cruise) and this is the final one! I had the amazing opportunity to take the Halloween Carnival Voyage from Los Angeles, California to Ensenada, Mexico on the Carnival Imagination this past weekend for 2 days.

In good Southern California fashion, the weather was absolutely ideal for cruising and what a great getaway it was! The Carnival Cruise Baja Mexico route is perfect for people that have never cruised before but curious to try it. Whether you're retired, with children or a couple like my husband and me, it's an absolute blast. Let's start off by giving you a look at our Stateroom!

This month, my Featured Friends is The Travelling Sociologist. We started chatting on Twitter a couple of months ago and now she's an active participant of the Fly Away Friday Link-Up as well as the engagement pod. When she reached out to be interviewed, I was thrilled! I've enjoyed reading all of her posts through Fly Away Friday and couldn't wait to get to know her a bit more. She has an interesting background and I can definitely identify with the issue of the "Where are you from?" question. Keep reading to see what I mean!

Exploring the Abandoned Water Park Between Los Angeles and Las Vegas

Abandoned Places California

If you've ever done the drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, you've spotted the abandoned park on the I-15. I've driven past it numerous times and each time, it comes up in conversation but I end up being too lazy to go, especially because there aren't obvious exits. Or let's be real, I'm either too excited to get to Vegas or too exhausted and want to go home!

But finally, I made it a point to explore it and I'm so glad I did because I'm completely fascinated by abandoned places. This abandoned water park is known as the Lake Dolores Water Park and is located along the I-15 in Newbury Springs, California in the western Mojave Desert between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
