Not for the Faint of Heart.

Sail Date: April 09, 2016

Room Type: Suite

This cruise was Great, " The unexplored So. American ports of call."  The Cruise itself a pleasure. Annoying to see Wealthy Ship passengers not paying a fair price for a product in the Poor Port Stands, then indulging in massive amounts of Wine & mixed beverages in the Ship. Treating the Indigenous Port Peoples, inhumanely.  The Food served on the first days is the best, after that food quality, not so good. Want Great Dinners?We recommend for future guests is to purchase many "Specialty Dining packages"!  Great "Productis", aimed @ the 50+ age group.  Other "Booked Shows", also aimed for the 50+ age groups.  

Cabin / Stateroom
For the faint of Heart, Leaving Cabo San Lucas all the way back to L.A. then to the Port of San Francisco, The Ship travels Mercilesly FAST, the sea sickness Patches will not work At ALL, the waves & wind add to the problem of speed. The rest of the Cruise was a BREEZE , until we sailed back home from Cabo san Lucas.
