I had thought that I would not like the entertainment but was surprised to enjoy the comedian Sasso and the Musical review. Living in NYC gives us a chance to see top entertainment and this came close to Broadway as one can get.
We took several tours by NCL and found them to be excellent. Now people tell you not to book via the cruise line and go and get a private cab. Don't be fooled. You may pay a little more but you get more. We did the Acapulco Highlights, shopping and Cliff Divers. There is another tour a little less money without the shopping. Next time we will take that one because this one had too much directed jewelry shopping. The cliff divers were great to watch. We went on the Las Gatas Beach Break in Zihuatenejo and spent at least three hours at the Beach. The beach was a little rocky but the food (fish or chicken) was very good. You got a lot
of Corona beer, soda and or water. Puerto Vallarta we did take a cab ride because it is a friendly town and we wanted to see Taylor and Burton home. Do spend some time in the old part of Puerto Vallarta. A cab ride from the ship to the old town should not cost you more than $4.00 per person. Well worth it. We booked the whale watching tour at Cabos San Lucas and thought that the price $72.00 per person a bit high. Well we were surprised that we got our money's worth with unlimited margaritas, a big ship and excellent guides. We saw the beautiful cost line and many whales. Well worth the price.
Our concierge Monica was excellent. Our butler Roy was OK. All in All it was a great trip and our disembarkment was quick and efficient. We recommend this trip to all. Less
