Christmas in Mexico!

This was our first holiday cruise. It was very odd to whale watch Christmas morning. Very cool though. We left 4 inches of snow to enjoy 80 degree weather. Loved it! The cruise overall was pretty good. On a 1-5 scale I would rate it a 4. The ship shows its age, but the maintenance staff does a good job with main public areas. Wished they had gotten to by daughter and son-in-law's cabin though. The electrical buzzing sound was creepy. Food at the restaurants was outstanding, but food at the buffets was just barely above edible. Don't book excursions through Carnival for Cabo San Lucas. There are TONS of options when you get off the boat and they cost less than half of what the ship charges.

Cruise tips

Long Beach (Los Angeles), California

Stayed at The Maya hotel. Not nearly as pretty as their pictures, but the staff was outstanding and made me want to visit again! They have a free shuttle to the ship. The shuttle can also take you to restaurants within two miles of the hotel. Important because hotel food was VERY expensive.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Spent Christmas morning whale watching...up close!!! Was hoping to go snorkeling but the water at Medano beach was so nasty with boat oil and stuff that we didn't feel it was a safe idea.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Las Caletas and Ziplining/Repelling were some of the excursions members of our group took part in. I wimped out and spent my day at the spa. Everyone had fun.

There are four slot machines in the casino that have rows of money as their theme. All four machines pay well. I won about $700 overall. Other family members won as well.
