LOVED the Cruise!

Sail Date: September 30, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

For the price of this cruise, we absolutely loved it! All the food on the ship was delicious and the staff was really friendly. The rooms were really spacious for a cruise ship. We had an inside cabin, it was 185 sq. feet. The inside cabin we had in Hawaii on the Pride of Aloha was 120 sq. feet. There was a big difference believe it or not! There were plenty of activities to keep us busy. The only port we loved was Cabo San Lucas (but never have enough time there). Mazatlan and Puerta Vallarta were just okay. It was extremely hot in both of those ports, I think October is Mexico's Summer! The shows each night in the Taj Mahal were first rate! The water going and coming from Mexico is really choppy. We have done this cruise before and it was the same. Not a super smooth sailing! The ship is lovely, you won't be disappointed!

Pros: The shows each night were fabulous and the food was exceptional!

Cons: The drinking water with all the chlorination, yuck!

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Beautiful! We wish we had more time there! Had to be back on the ship by 3:00 p.m., too soon in my opinion!
Don't Miss: Sammy Haggar's Cabo Wabo Cantina
Mazatlan, Mexico
Not impressed with Mazatlan, although it was better than Puerta Vallarta.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
So hot the day we were in Puerta Vallarta that we got off the ship for 20 minutes and right back on.
