    • San Francisco; The Guadalupe Valley (Ensenada), Mexico

    Come join MAX and your host David Petlin for a four night sailing out of SAN FRANCISCO (that’s right, no air fare needed!) on board the beautiful Carnival Miracle.  Sail away under the Golden Gate Bridge (one of the most spectacular sailings) to Sunny Ensenada Mexico where we will meet our hosts for a wonderful day adventuring through the Guadalupe Valley – this is Mexico’s answer to Napa Valley - for a spectacular day of wine tasting.   

    Unspoiled and untouched, the Guadalupe Valley boasts some of the best wine you will taste and food you will eat.  Enjoy the rustic countryside as we visit 3-4 wineries. Experience the alluring wine culture in the Guadalupe Valley before it reaches Napa Valley prices.  We will also enjoy lunch at a 5-star restaurant in the valley (that would be over $300 per person in San Francisco) for around $50.

    On board the Carnival Miracle - you can experience one of a kind dining, entertainment, pools, waterslides, and spa. Take part in the Hasbro Game Show, grab a pint at the RedFrog Pub, or enjoy a show with Playlist Productions. There will also be a LGBT Meet-up on board so you can meet other sailors not with our group!  There is a reason Carnival is the FUN SHIP, with MAX on board, you know it will be!

    Cruise price starts at $419 a person plus taxes, fees, and gratuities based on two in the room, plus approximately $100 for the excursion to Wine Country (this is based on the number of people who join us - wine tastings are included, but lunch is not).  On board an optional dinner will include a chef’s dinner in the main dining room that is one of a kind and not to miss!

    Fee to MAX is $25 for members and $50 for non-members.  All MAX dues-paying members will receive $25 in on-board credit per cabin.
