It was our family's first time going on a cruise and I would say it's not that bad. I love the service all the crews provided! Living like Kings and Queens on the ship was fantastic! I love the clear paradise beaches of Cabos and Puerto Vallarta but not at Matzalan. Our tour guy in Puerto Vallarta is very good, he even drive to buy us fresh mangoes while we played in the beautiful beach! Besides enjoying the day in all the ports, I would say I was quite bore in the ship the last two days coming back to Long Beach. I wish there were water slide in the ship for my two little girls to play and a nicer size pool for the kids to swim. I also wish the menus for breakfast and lunch would change at least every other day. It was the same thing every single day which makes it not very interesting. But overall experience was great!

Long Beach (Los Angeles), California

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Love the paradise beaches but didn't like all those people trying to sell me stuff I didn't need. You HAVE TO BRING YOUR OWN TOILET PAPERS when coming here! Bring $1 bills too. You have to tip them in order to use their bathroom and they will only hand you a tiny small amount of toilet paper to use.
Mazatlan, Mexico
Bought the excursion to Stone Island and I must say I wasted a whole day there. Didn't enjoy anything at all. Beach were just as dirty as in California. Fresh coconut tasted nothing like coconut. Food was ok. Very dusty with dirts flying.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Had a great time here. Ziplining was great! Beaches were awesome...we did snorkling here and it was perfect! Had fresh mangoes off the tree, it was perfect!
