I chose this cruise for the ports.  They were very nice and picturesque.  Typical of Mexico, much of the land was poor.  Great views just from the ship.  Enjoyed many a sunrise from my balcony.  The tours offered by the ship were great and offered many affordable options.  I don't typically enjoy 4 days at sea, but I allowed myself to relax.  They offered A LOT! of movie options on their movie channels.  I loved that.  The entertainment was comme ci, comme ça (so-so).  They boat is very clean and the service VERY good.  Food was also comme ci, comme ça.  Lol  Some was too salty, too spicy or too bland.  I just chose multiple options and was never hungry.  Yummy  The service was VERY friendly, half of the crew is from the Philippines.  About 10% from India.  I am familiar with Norwegian, so I wasn't expecting a "Fun Ship".  It's a very mature crowd.

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California If you rent a car from Enterprise, there is a branch with a drop off at the Crown Plaza hotel, which is walking distance from the port. Was able to drop off on Sunday, even though the branch was closed.
