Review summary

My Favorite part of this cruise was the mini-suite - I will not book another ordinary stateroom. Well worth the extra and not that much more than a balcony but so much more room.

I am a food lover and so that is one of my primary entertainments and indulgences. My wife is a shopper with a similar enthusiasm for her pursuit. There was plenty to delight us both.

I was disappointed that our time in port was limited, decreasing with each stop. I also would have liked it if we had a day at sea between each one.

This cruise had a happy hour that I, my wife, and several dozen of our closest friends enjoyed quit a lot, but libations generally were generally very affordable anyway.

I will not book below mini-suite again. It is that nice. So great to have room to move in addition to the balcony. I would try to get one more aft rather than midships, even though it might be a bit bouncy.

Ship tip

Have lunch in the dining room if it is open. Have breakfast and late night in the buffet.

Use your navigation system to find the dock.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

This was the best port for just walking around. Skip the taxi. The bus costs 50 cents and is quite entertaining.

Mazatlan, Mexico

Hire an open taxi and negotiate your own tour. Do your homework first.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Hacienda Tequila has the best selection and prices.
