Norwegian Jewel

March 2016 - Norwegian Jewel to Mexico

"Ports were Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, & Puerto Vallarta, Mexico "

Loved it

Sailed with the hubby and our boys. We had the beverage, dining, and 50 free pictures (per cabin, we had 2 cabins) packages. When you see these specials try to get them quick it is worth it. Hubby loved getting his beer whenever he felt like having a drink and relaxing. The kids enjoyed getting the virgin piña coladas (it was like a smoothie for them) and ordering all the other non-alcoholic drinks on top of all the soda they can drink. The dining package was for 4 specialty restrauants per person. We ate at Moderno Chuscarria (first time ever to one these kind of restrauants) it was amazing they kept bringing different types of meat till you flip your card to red (they give you a card with one side the color green to keep the meat coming or the other side colored red to stop). And we tried La Cucina it was good they have different types of pasta to choose from and your standard Italian dishes like lasagna. Now the best restrauant on board hands down is Cagney's if you love steak this is a must. Went twice, it was that good. Now the picture deal was great because, we were able to take pictures every time the ship photographers were taking pictures on the ship and at the ports. We came home with close to 80 pictures from the cruise. (Not to mention all the ones I took)

Norwegian Star

March 2015 - Norwegian Star to Mexico

"Port was overnight in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico"

Spring Break 2015

This was first time cruising with the kids and first time with Norwegian. With it being Spring Break there were lots of college kids. Which were suprisingly very well behaved and very respectful, especially once they noticed little ones around. We sadly only had one port Cabo San Lucas which was an overnight. I guess it was good and bad. Good because, the ship was empty when we got back on the ship till the next morning. (College kids were having to much fun at the nightclubs which you could see and hear from the ship) And my kids took advantage of the pool and slides being empty. Now the bad part was that it was a 5 day cruise, I felt we should have had just one more stop.

Carnival Inspiration

May 2014 - Carnival Inspiration to Mexico

"Ports visited Catalina Island, California & Ensenada, Mexico"

Cruisingfamily's Tips

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - Did not book excursion through the ship and opted to find our own tour guide. Once we got off the tender boat we saw there were plenty of locals with signs ready to you sightseeing. I say don't always go with the first price they give you. Negotiate.
Mazatlan, Mexico - Take the Pulmonia which are cars that look like golf carts. Should cost you about $20 an hour. They wil take you to all the scenic and tourist spots. (And wherever else you tell them). And do go to Mercado Pino Suarez for you souvenirs.
