Overall Member Rating
A relaxing week in the Mexican Riviera
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
We found the food in the main dining room and the buffet to be not the best. Since we were expecting the same quality of food that we've enjoyed on previous cruises, that was disappointing. We ate breakfast in the main dining room almost every morning, and thought that breakfast was good. The More fruits were very fresh and good, and the breads were always good. Other than that, the food was very marginal most of the time. However, the service was generally excellent, and the wait staff very professional. We did not eat in any of the specialty restaurants. We did eat in the buffet a couple of times, and found it unimpressive, both for food and ambiance.
Our shore excursions were very good. We went on snorkeling trips in both Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta, and enjoyed the trips very much. The only negative was the water temperature - a brisk 70 degrees. Having snorkeled in the Caribbean on other trips, we were expecting slightly warmer water temperatures. In Mazatlan, we took the tram to the terminal, and took a trolley tour of the city.
Although the weather was not the best, we enjoyed the cruise and had a restful, relaxing week. Less
Our cabin was aft, port side. Very quiet and conveniently located very close to the elevator and stairs.
