Cruise ship to Ensanada and stayover 3 nite..es possible?

Hola first time on this site since we usually go to Isla Mujeres or PV. We were hoping someone has tried to take a boat from San Diego to Ensanada and then stay 3 or 4 nites. All the cruise ships stop there but then keep on going. Before I ask them has anyone tried for a drop off at Ensanada and then a pick up later in the week at a pro rata fare? Are there smaller boat lines that do this? Is this a stupid idea and maybe just take the bus? (We have never cruised). Any great thoughts?

I don't know if it's possible or not, but it would certainly be an expensive way to get from California to Ensenada. The ship leaves the California port in the early evening; it arrives in Ensenada the next day. You'd sleep on the ship and eat dinner and breakfast before arriving in Ensenada.

Why not just rent a car and drive to Ensenada. The road to Ensenada is a 4 lane, divided median, well maintained toll road. The views of the coast are spectacular. If you observe the speed limit (in kilometers, not miles), you have nothing to fear in terms of getting a ticket.

I forgot to say, it will take you less than an hour and a half to get to Ensenada from San Diego.

As the cruzinqueen, no cruise ship allows you to use them as transport. Their money is made by your ship stay, not wwhat you pay for ship transport. If Ensanada is your destination, others on this site have driven recently and say no problem.
