Review summary

The ship was clean and comfortable, dining room staff was exceptional, our room was spacious and we enjoyed the balcony. Excursions were fun, but if anyone is going on the luxury sail, it was hot and be careful the rays hitting the deck and reflecting upwards will burn some unexpected places.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

we did the air boat, horse back ride to waterfall was nice, but pathway could be a few inches wider, several times my ankle was skinned from hitting the rock, food was excellent, water was murky due to it being the rainy season so snorkling was poor.
