Cruises to Mexican Riviera

With its scenic coastline extending around the Baja Peninsula, western Mexico consists of three states and a petite grouping of islands. An experience on Mexico's Gold Coast may include lounging on the beach, kayaking a sandbar, exploring Mayan ruins or dancing in trendy nightclubs. Mazatlan offers a more traditional cultural experience, while Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas are especially accommodating to cruisers looking to shop or head to local restaurant and bars.

The disclaimers first: I have only done three cruises so I'm not a seasoned traveler and my first cruise was on Crystal Cruises and I have found nothing to compare yet. I left Tucson driving early to spend a few days in California before my cruise ... Read more
We purchased "Faster to the Fun." I think it was worth it. Our flight got in at about 9:30 at Long Beach airport and we were on the ship at 11:30. Since we got up early, Faster to the Fun meant we got to eat lunch on the ship. I think ... Read more
