We were very pleased with this cruise. The ship was lovely and it was easy to find our way around. The food in all parts of the ship were exceptional, by far the best of all the 4 cruise lines I've traveled on. I do recommend skipping the port of Manzanillo in the future and hitting Hualtulco instead.

Pros: beautiful ship, delicious food, terrific service

Cons: Manzanillo

Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico
Ixtapa lovely and well kept. Don't let them talk you into a boat ride to an island in Ixtapa.
Don't Miss: Crocodalia is neat if you've never seen one.
Acapulco, Mexico
The beach adjacent to the lovely hotes was wonderful for body surfing. Crazy place to drive in December during their religious celebration...allow extra time to get around. Budget works well with customers and there is a site to rent right in town and can drop off at ship. Gardens at Loyola University are nice.
Manzanillo, Mexico
Yuk. Nothing really to see here-had great difficulty with the locals trying to cheat us.
