Get a balcony! See the sites!

Sail Date: March 22, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The balcony for us was worth the extra cost. We spent every morning reading the days events and planning our day and we finished each day by watching the sunset, before heading out for the evenings activities. Salsa/Salsa was fun. Kayaking amazing and Yelapa was a great excursion. - - Watch out for service fees. We tipped the staff through out the cruise to only learn later that they tack on $12.50 per day per person for the same purpose.

Destinations and Excursions
These were fantastic. Getting off the boat on day one was slow using tenders. Other days went well.
Cabin / Stateroom
We spent time every morning and every evening on our private deck. Sunsets for the first 5 days and whales, sea lions, turtles and dolphins on the last 2 days. Great location for ship activities.

We came down a day early and walked from our hotel to the ship. Made for a more relaxed start. Happy Diner for Breakfast.

Mazatlan, Mexico

They charge a 12.50 per day per person service charge to tip the staff. So do not be surprised by the almost $200 charge on your bill at check out.
