This was a perfect vacation cruise.  We enjoyed our first day in San Diego. This gave us a chance to see the city and some of it's highlights. The port that we visited next, LaPez,was a small and quaint place.  We really liked this one.  The people and the culture was delightful and the place was so clean and manicured.  The next stop, Loreto, was also a nice port for us to see. It was also a small town, but too, just as awesome at the other port, LaPez.  Porta Vallarta, is a wonderful place. There are so many things to do and see.  The board walk is beautiful and relaxing along the waters. The shopping had great bargains for us, and their food was authentic Mexican.  Yummy. The ports were all good choices for the cruise to take and we always felt safe there.  The ship was great, as well as the staff, and most importantly of all to us, was the awesome food prepared on ship. Over all, this has been our 4th or 5th cruise to Mexico, and we just love it.  The itinerary for this cruise and the ship was great too, as we had never been to two of the ports. It was something else to be excited to see and learn about. LoveBig SmileHappy

Cabin / Stateroom

Our balcony room was over all good. The balcony was one of the largest ones we have ever had with an extended 4 feet. It certainly made quite a difference. The temperature controls were accurate and the beds were very comfortable. If I had anything to do with it, I would eliminate the heavy comforter. It was just too much and too heavy. It was hard to turn over in bed!!! With the temperature controls there, we don't need anything that heavy. A lighter one would be more effecient..

Ship Tip

Take advantage of the optional dining places to eat. The Crown Steak House was a teriffic place to dine. The food, the ambiance, and the servers were super.
