Overall, we had an excellent cruise sailing to the Mexican Rivera.  We selected the camel ride excursion in Cabo San Lucas, which we had a blast, and would highly recommend that excursion (5 stars).  We selected the topless bus to travel around Mazatlan, which we really enjoyed.  We just wished that the tour was longer than 2 hours, and that they spent more time in the Golden Zone.  We walked around Puerto Vallarta on our own, and really enjoyed the shopping and excitement of the town.  One tip, the vendors will continue to approach you to buy some of their wares, and you just have to ignore them.


As far as the room, we had a mini suite, and I really thought it was going to be a lot larger than the balcony, but it was not.  There was a little space before the balcony door with a sofa, and the bathroom had a tub and shower - those were the only differences.


As far as the food, it was mediocre.  We have definitely tasted better food on other cruise lines.  Also, the entertainment on the ship was mediocre.  I found better entertainment on Royal Caribbean and Princess.  There was a band called, "Twice as Nice", which the male singer use to sing with the Stylistics and Commodores, and they were really good, otherwise, the other entertainment was so so.


Regardless of the few items that I have listed above, we had a great time, and I would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone wanting to go to Mexico.
