As a family that loves Cabo and wanted a quick getaway this is the perfect itinerary. The ship stays in the bay, and has tenders running all night. It made it easy to play on the beach all day, go get cleaned up and then also experience the Cabo night life.

just the right amount of vacation!

We've done a number of cruises with NCL, but we had never done a 5 night cruise. This was just right. For the 7 night cruises, we start to get really homesick on day 6 and really ready to go home on day 7. This was wonderful. I especially loved being in port overnight. That allowed us to go on multiple excursions to see more of Cabo.

 

We got the beverage package and the dining package. The beverage package made our many trips to the bar so easy! And the dining package allowed us to go to the specialty restaurants that we were always looking at. I can't say enough wonderful things about the specialty restaurants. We went to Cagney's, Moderno, and La Cucina.

 

We didn't go to the pool or the hot tub because there were too many people, but we found lots of places for reading. We did go to all of the art auctions and seminars. Those are always fantastic. The art team was very helpful with making sure that we got the pieces that we wanted. That was probably the highlight of our vacation!

Low Budget cruise was awesome!

The Mexican Riviera stops in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo which are all beautiful. We went on excursions to all three places but my favorite was in Puerto Vallarta to an excusion called Las Caletas Hideaway .  It's a private beach with hammocks, chairs, snorkeling, zip lining, slides, etc. We were surprised the drinks were unlimited and free! Also included was a buffet .  The boat ride over to it is about 45 min. but they entertain you both ways and they are hilarious .  It's the  perfect day. Parasailing in Cabo is pretty awesome too. Afterwards take a water taxi for $3 each, each way to the  beaches and go to the Sand Bar near the Office restaurant it's a lot cheaper. Eat, drink and hang out on their lounge chairs for the rest of the day.  I absolutely loved this cruise. The entertainment on the ship was amazing with comedians ,  magician, cirque acrobatic show, dancing, singing, etc. You will not be bored. We stayed  in a cheap interior state room. We were out and about so much, it didn't matter. This is the biggest bang for your buck!

HappyGreat over all. Some food and service so-so. Two heat servers, cocktail and dining room. Food in O'Sheehan's was not good. Need to be revamped. Could also use a better variety of freestyle dining.

Great cruise

We had a wonderful time. The food was, of course, great and it had one of the best production groups we've seen on a cruise. The hotel director, Stephan, and the Captain were at several events and often visible, very involved. Mexico has some great stops and we'd do it again (for the 3rd or 4th time for some of my family).

REALLY NICE CRUISE

Loved the cruise.  Food was great.  Best prime rib I've had in awhile at find dining.  I saw more of and talked with the hotel director more than any other cruise I've taken.  He is really a hands-on person in assisting his staff whenever he can.  The staff at Vallarta Adventures did and excellent job with our excursions.  The onboard activites were fun though I did not see any towel folding (may have missed it).

Cruise Director

If no tables at the garden cafe, walk to the Aft of deck 12 and take your food into Cucina. Was empty for the most part!

You will like the fact the Jewel staff doesn't hound you for pictures like other cruise lines.

The 2 person musical duo "Cover Story" was very entertaining. The female vocalist was very good; the male musician played both piano and guitar. They did popular songs. Our 4 year old granddaughter danced to every number, to the amusement of the audience.
