    The wife is not as much as a problem as the beer selection. Where is it?

    Yes the list would greatly help as well as what's included. Though the promise of brewery tours in port sounds pretty amazing.

    And for that all you really need is a list of the ports to be visited.

    So strange that it is starting from Ensenada and not a US port like LA or San Diego. Rarely see any cruises that start from there.

    A moving ship combined with drinking? No thank you. This would just be a vomit fest for me, lol;)

    There must be a reason. The beercentric nature, perhaps? That and that it may run afoul of U.S.A. regulations is my guess.

    I second this motion. Unless of course this cruise was sponsered by Biere Du Bucaneer and was totally pirate themed and made people jump the plank. Otherwise i feel i would get claustrophobia.

    I dont have to get on a boat to drink craft beer. Also the destinations dont sound too exciting!
