Onboard Activities

Not much going on, but based on the average age of passengers I guess this was the best they could do.

Comedians and music were good, but stage productions have gone downhill compared to other cruise lines

Lovely town to visit for More than 1 day to see all the sights. Great excursion here.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Typical Mexican port with high pressure sales every 5 feet. Actually felt harassed by venders and even when you tell them no, they still persued you. I had booked an independent boat tour which was wonderful.

Mazatlan, Mexico

2 out of 5
Not quite as aggressive venders, but still very much there. I booked an outside excursion at a much reduced price compared to the cruise line. Tour guide had a masters in history and was wonderful.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Again, typical Mexico stop. After 3 like this, we have decided to not do anymore Mexican tours and cruises. I just do not like being badgered with every step.
