Overall Member Rating
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
Our First port was supposed to be PuertoViaratta but unfortuneatly due to a Tropical Storm we had to chage the More itinerary. The ship pulled into Cabo for our First port. Cabo is great and has really developed since we were last there 10 years ago. The second Port was Mazatlan, the bestthing we did here was take a taxi out tothe gold zone and walked along the beach. We came acorss a hotel called the Royal Villas Resort, we went up to the front desk and picked up some towels an dhung by thier beach side pool for the afternoon. The family had lunch an drinks, including 4 beers for less than $25. The vendors on the beach were like a swarm of mosquito's and were sometimes difficult to move away from. Our last port was Ensenada which was OK, got the T-Shirt! Overall the entertainment on the ship was fair, there was one show at two different times each night, so your choices were limited. However, they were pretty entertaining. The bingo was a bust, $20 for a 3 line card, most games were on 3 games long and it went really fast. The casino was fun, the slots were a bit tight, the face up blackjack was really fun and actually was the most rewarding of any of th games around. The Romanian Dealers didn't laugh to much! The best thing about this cruise was that my 12 year old daughter had the best time, my wife and I felt comfortable allowing her free rein and she maximized her fun, alot of kids her own age, the dance parties and just having fun! Oh yeah, 3000 passengers of which 1000+ were kids... Less
