The ship itself was spectacular....the rooms were just gorgeous..the linens were so soft and comfortable it was very high class. te food was delicious and consistent. everything about the ship was taken care of...the help was veryu friendly and helpful even if the request was not really their job. and they said hello just for the heck of it as you passed. you can see that everyone is well trained and the aim of the cruise line is to make sure you come back because they pay attention to every detail. ther's so much to do all day and night. there's so much food to eat anytime you want and theyve done away witht he wasteful buffets and simply have well cooked delicious food available very very late into the night with pizza and calzone, which was excellent, available 24/7

Pros: the cruise director was hysterical and the shows were so entertaining

Cons: nothing..well. there werent enough seats at the pool..too many people and they hold the seat all day!

Mazatlan, Mexico
i liked this town the best. the city tour was also very very very good. not to miss the cliff divers. beautiful drive along the coast...very entertaining show in town
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
i went on the city tour..the catamaran trip to see the rock formations was spectacular. the rest of the bus tour stunk.too much time driving to sites on highways seeing nothing of the culture or to show you were even in was like being on a highway anywhere in the us. to me the whle tour was about taking us to places to give the help tips. the ride to the restaurant on the mountain was anice view but an awful long ride for nothing really. and the lady in the bathroom was standing there doing nothing but next to a tip plate..then the kids that hand you youre soda put their hands was uncomfortable. the glass blowing place also had a tip jar and they didnt show all that much. it was all about buying the products, the only half way decent attraction was the cactus world.very pretty. not enogh time in the town where things actualy looked mexican. we should have been taken to the beaches..the thing cabo is famous for. i would imagine another excursion might have been better
Don't Miss: another excursion than the combined city and catamaran tour fofr $79. too expensive for nothing
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
the tour of the town was very very good the nearby shopping was good . i oculdve lived without the trip to the city in the mountain on the tour was all about selling you stuff and nothiung really to see..but the rest of the tour was so good so hey, what can ya do....
Don't Miss: papatlya (?) flyers at the beach
