Personal Narrative: Carnival Cruise Vacation

Improved Essays
When my family goes on vacation, every day is filled with adventure around every corner. My mom, dad, sister Abby, and I were fortunate enough to go on a Carnival Cruise to Mexico. We took this fantastic and memorable trip in July, 2014. Our ship departed from Long Beach and was sailing to Ensenada, Mexico. This terrific voyage lasted four days and three nights, which were each filled with delightful adventures and activities. The cruise that I took to Mexico provided my family and I with precious bonding time and fantastic memories to last a lifetime, for which I will forever be thankful.
While living on the luxurious ship for a few days, my family had a wonderful place to call home while we enjoyed time bonding together. When we first boarded

At first, I was thoroughly sad and upset because I wanted to go buy something at the gift shop and now had no money to use. Thankfully, my dad was nice enough to lend me some cash so I could do a little shopping. The following day, I was out at the pool deck with my whole family enjoying the nice, warm jacuzzi. I decided to check out the pool on my own, so I walked over and stepped onto this plank that was above the pool water, dividing it into two sections. A girl came up behind me on the plank, and either by accident or on purpose, she pushed me into the freezing cold pool! It felt like being in the Arctic Ocean, and as all my muscles were tensing up, all I could think about was getting out of there. On the third day, we finally arrived in Mexico, and my family boarded a bus that took us to downtown Ensenada. We spent a large portion of the day shopping around in various stores, and I even got a beautiful necklace from Swarovski. Later in the afternoon, we came across someone who had exotic animals like a lion, tiger, and parrot, that you could pay to take a picture with. My family wanted to take a photo with the baby lion, so we all sat down and my mom held the lion. Apparently the lion was not very happy, because after letting out a big yawn, it bit my mom on her shoulder! Fortunately, it did not cause any serious damage and we could continue with our day. All the adventures we experienced together as a family created lasting memories that we are grateful to

After that, I went out to pick one of many of my birthday presents. I happened to pick out a Dumbo toy in the park, Epcot. Soon after that, we went back to the hotel and I begged my parents the whole way back to let me go off the Volcano slide at the hotel, because I wanted to be just like my brother and sister. No one wanted me to go off the slide because it was deep water and no one knew if I could swim or not.…

    “A person who smiles at us is sending a nonverbal signal that the person finds us to be like him or her and is a friend, not a foe” (p. 299).
