Review summary

The Mexican Riviera stops in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo which are all beautiful. We went on excursions to all three places but my favorite was in Puerto Vallarta to an excusion called Las Caletas Hideaway .  It's a private beach with hammocks, chairs, snorkeling, zip lining, slides, etc. We were surprised the drinks were unlimited and free! Also included was a buffet .  The boat ride over to it is about 45 min. but they entertain you both ways and they are hilarious .  It's the  perfect day. Parasailing in Cabo is pretty awesome too. Afterwards take a water taxi for $3 each, each way to the  beaches and go to the Sand Bar near the Office restaurant it's a lot cheaper. Eat, drink and hang out on their lounge chairs for the rest of the day.  I absolutely loved this cruise. The entertainment on the ship was amazing with comedians ,  magician, cirque acrobatic show, dancing, singing, etc. You will not be bored. We stayed  in a cheap interior state room. We were out and about so much, it didn't matter. This is the biggest bang for your buck!

We didn't take children but I observed children telling their parents they wanted to go to Splash rather than the shows.

It was the cheapest deal and perfectly fine. It was clean and comfortable and that's all you need. You can turn on the TV to see where the ship is or get up and go have fun like we did.

Ship tip

Go to the shows 15 min early to get a good seat.
