Easy, Simple, and Relaxing!
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
As far as this itinerary, it was a simple one. Many types and variety of activities for both Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. Only 3 activity options for Ensanada. Since we were on this cruise a few years back, we chose not to take part in any shore excursions. We simply just got off the ship and roamed the area in and around the ports. The disemabarkation process was slightly confusing in that we were adhering and following our written instructions as given but found out that was more of a formality than a strict policy. We were told we could only disembark at a certain time from a certain location but it turns out we could actually go when ready.
All in all, the experience was good. At some point in the future we would take this ship again. Though we liked the minisuitre experience, we may opt for a higher deck for more deck/porch privacy. Decks 9 & 10 are exposed to ALL folks above you. The advantage of this is more direct sun on the porch. The disadvantage is that there is very little privacy as you have NO "roof" above you. Decks 11 & 12 have roofs above the porches. Less
Cabin review: D118
Cabin was fine. We enjoyed it very much. Particularly the 2 TV's and the larger size bathroom with a tub. It is located on 5 cabins from the front of the ship. The only draw back was the extensive distance to get to any location at the back of the ship such as dining rooms. It was quite a long ways. Other than that, the cabin was good.
A wonderful cruise, but save u...
All in All, a Very Good Cruise...
