8 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 14, 2006
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The Norwegian Star is deserving of its status as fleet flagship. We are veteran cruisers, this being our third cruise, and second time with the Norwegian line. It seems that each time we have cruised has been a step up in value and enjoyment.

I had been to Zihau/Ixtapa about twenty years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how it had changed from a sleepy little village with dirt roads to a slightly more modern city. We did not take any tours there, but enjoyed walking through the town and visiting the shops.

Cabo is the most beautiful little city we have ever seen in Mexico. The people are friendly, and we didn't find the taxi drivers as aggressive as in some of the other places we visited on this cruise.
Don't Miss: A glass bottom boat ride to lover's beach and the rocks is de rigeur!

Puerto Vallarta was delightful! We were driven to "Old Town" and worked our way back on foot. When we tired, we took the bus back to port for fifty cents per person! Many of the oceanfront vistas and the artwork were impressive and there were lots of wonderful photo backdrops.
Don't Miss: Don't miss Margaritaville for a giant margarita.

The Cliff Divers was the most impressive thing I have ever seen on a cruise.
Don't Miss: We thought the Fort at Acapulco was a wonderful opportunity to learn the history of the city.
