Ordering the Medallion embarkation was so fast we were on the ship within 10 and that’s with taking the embarkation photo 😁.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
This stateroom has an obstructed view but it’s not really noticeable in that there is nothing directly obstructing. There is however no direct view of the ocean right below the balcony but instead the 7th floor balcony walk way and there is some noice of the public area door opening and closing. But we weren’t really bothered by it.

Ship tip

Try room service though the medallion app. It’s a great and easy experience.

Ports of call

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
Very easy to get around on public transit. The drivers are helpful. Remember that you’d need pesos to pay for the bus. Lots is cute restaurants with really yummy food and cheaply priced drinks. The ocean is amazing and handing out at the beach for the day was amazing. Jan weather was amazing, not too hot but sunny.

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
This port is really easy to get around in your own. From the beautiful church to the beach and divers. Lots of folks trying to sell souvenirs but that’s to be expected in the touristy areas. Lots of feed/drink spots which are obviously cheaper than on the ship. The weather was awesome in January not too hot, beautiful and sunny.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

3 out of 5
Pretty much American prices at this port. Nothing special and on the last trip the ship only stayed in port from 6 am to 12 pm, so we couldn’t do much exploring.

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California

5 out of 5
The port is very easy to get to and navigate. The porters are pretty nice as well, but pushy. Just a word of caution there is some construction in the area.
