7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Sail Date: September 07, 2008 Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 7 years ago
We had a fantastic time on board the Vision of the Seas! We celebrated our 3rd anniversary, my brother who traveled with us got engaged on board and the ship had wonderful staff, crew and captain! We will definitely continue to return to a RCCL ship again!
We got to spend two days instead of one in PV. We were thrilled to get to experience the night life! Our captain determined it was not safe to go to our first (cabo) or second (maz) ports of call, we went straight to PV and had so much fun! The first day we hit WalMart, the experience is entertaining for sure. Then we went downtown, walked on the Malecon, visited Sr. Frogs, ate lunch on the beach by the river and checked out a boutique hotel on the hillside of the Romantic Zone we have thought about staying at. It's worth checking out, Casa Isabel. That night we hung out at the bodeguita del medio, a cuban club with live music and locals salsa dancing! It was great, very entertaining and they had a great variety of cigars. The second day we took a taxi to Mismaloya, a lovely little cove where they filmed, "The Night of the Iguana," with Liz Taylor and Richard Burton with beachfront restaurants and bars with food that didn't make us sick and even a few places for massages!
Don't Miss: Mismaloya Beach!
We did make it back to Cabo on Friday instead of the originally planned Tuesday. There was a tropical storm and the port was closed, but our captain was so great and made it so we could still enjoy Cabo even though we had to leave at 2pm.
Don't Miss: Chileno Bay snorkeling. Loved the catamaran! SO MUCH FUN!
Pros: Friendly staff, great stateroom and good company!
Cons: weather related port cancellation! :( Stateroom breakfast
