Review summary

This was our first cruise to what is known as the Mexican Riviera. We loved each and every port. We took a bus excursion in Puerto Vallarta. Saw some beautiful churches, drove up into the mountains and had a great Mango Margarita and watched an old woman hand roll different sized cigars (yes, I bought quite a few), then down to a beautiful beach area. While in the beach area we both were allowed to hold a green iguana, Nancy wasn't impressed. lol Next stop was Mazatlan, where we took a taxi to see a few things. Our driver took us to many interesting spots. Up on a bluff overlooking the ship, a shopping area ( where I bought a couple of wallets) and then to an exhibit, with a young lasso artist, pole dancing Indians and then back to the port. A great time. Next stop was Cabo. If you want to watch whales, this is the place to go in January and February. We took an excursion boat out and saw many whales and dolphins, while wearing shorts, plenty of sunshine and warm. lol Highly recommend this. The meals, entertainment (in the theater and throughout the ship) was great, the staff was friendly and went out of their way to please you. A FANTASTIC TRIP!!!!
