We loved the size o fthe ship as well as passenger ratio- we never felt crowded evrything was easy to reach and close by. Our stateroom was large enough and cofortable- The staff however was superb. All were very friendly and most of them took the trouble to remember our names!! My favorite of all was the dining room staff- especially Benban' I enjoyed the cruise so much that I dreamt about it for ocer a week after getting home!!! We have cruised often, but this was definately our best cruise ever- even tough we were familiar with all the ports. Thank you HAL for aa great ship and great crew!!

Hadn't been there in 25 years - not much changed except for a small motel and the new Palacio Municipal. The tourist dollars should help this area grow and create more jobs- very important for a place like Topolabampo
Don't Miss: The side trips and the free shuttle to Los Mochis was a plus. I especially enjoyed and bought some of the Indian art and costumes- Very original and hard to find!!

Pros: Ship itself

Cons: n/a

Recommends Ryndam? Yes!
