Mexican Riviera Cruise

Sail Date: September 25, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The service received from all staff and their attitude was great. Other than the dispute we have with the obstructed view from our stateroom the only negative issues we experienced were waiting on hour to board a tender going ashore to Cabo and waiting an hour in the lounge to disembark back in LA. Was my first cruise and would go back again being more careful about room selection.

we were very disappointed to say the least! When I booked the trip and saw the room on the ship map I made a point to confirm this room would be unobstructed ocean view. The agent confirmed that it was. Guess we'll agree to disagree on this but you be the judge and view my pics. Worst thing is we even paid more than the room next store and they basically have same view!

wondering why stop in La Paz ...but Loreto was a nice surprise...still small and quaint town with nice main strip for shops and authentic Mexican food. Just a warning to those who go on this cruise end September....the temps in Cabo and other stops were in the low 90s and very humid. Most shops, etc. in this part of Mexico don't have AC...not the cruise's fault but be prepared with water and a towel.

Food and Dining
Buffet food was bland and very little taste. Dining room food was very good.


if looking for the formal dining wait until after 8pm. by then the crowds are gone, you'll get better service from the staff, plus....they'll bring you extra dishes that you enjoy as the food is prepared and must be consumed that night.
