7 Night Mexican Riviera (San Diego Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 22, 2007
Ship: Oosterdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago
In Room Dining services took forever and mostly messed up the order; the food was less than desired especially the coffee. Embarkation is a nightmare on the first day. Not very clear on all the services the boat provides. No free drinks in the Casino (the first time ever in a casino). THey would take your word on the room number as opposed to asking for your card all the time. THe entertainment staff worked really hard; however, they were not that great.

Not many good beaches except for resorts. YOu can haggle all the local vendors, but cut the price by 65%. DIrty city and needs some renovating. The Rythm of The Nights is a fantastic tour and is entertaining the whole time.
Don't Miss: Rythm of the Nights
5 out of 5
Cabo Wabo was really good; the best shopping district; secluded islands were great; locals re fantastic; glass blowing factory is good
Don't Miss: the arches
5 out of 5
stay away form the old town shopping because it is very dirty; new town is amazing and has amazing beaches; if you walk to old town (about 3 miles) then you will see some of the best sites. Panchos's restaraunt is great on the beach.Shopping is overpriced.

Pros: the staff, the balcony, disembarkation

Cons: Food, Embarkation, lack of information

Recommends Oosterdam? Yes!
