7 Night Mexican Riviera (San Diego Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 16, 2011

The crew was perhaps not the friendliest compared to other cruises we have taken (including on HAL) but they were hard workers and all went well.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
A little disappointing that they did not keep a public area open 24 hours for eating as on other cruises - there was of course room service and they were great! Also, the Lido restaurant had shorter hours than on other cruises.

Fabulous entertainment! Being that there were four adults traveling together, we went to almost every show.

Ship Quality

I know this sounds like a small detail - but were impressed with the fresh/live flowers on every table in the dining area, in each bathroom and throughout the ship! Nice touch!

Shop here instead of Cabo - prices are significantly less!
Don't Miss: ZIP LINE!!!!!!!!!!
5 out of 5
Shopping here was not nearly " as fun" clearly this port is "higher class"
Don't Miss: Catamarran cruise!!

Pros: The shows and the great excursions!

Cons: Hmmmm, getting off the ship to come home??

Recommends Oosterdam? Yes!
