Pretty nice cruise if you're in a suite.

Cabin: Penthouse with Large Balcony

This was a combination repositioning and Mexican Riviera cruise totaling 12 days from Vancouver to Victoria, Astoria, LA, Puerta Vallarta, Mazatlan, Cabo and back to LA. We chose this cruise because of its length and the hope of getting some fall weather in Canada and the Pacific Northwest. We did...and it was great...the weather that is. No rain, mild temperatures, and very calm seas.

We actually booked a stern facing suite because we like seeing and hearing the wake and enjoying the ship's motion in that location. However, the seas were so calm that we might as well have been on land. The suite on Deck 9, was fabulous. Because it was a handicap suite, we had a little extra room which made relaxation either in the suite or on the balcony especially comfortable. Among other amenities, we were afforded an espresso machine and afternoonmunchies which we enjoyed daily. The shower was almost spacious and the closet and storage spaces were more than adequate. The king size bed was especially comfortable and very large.

Norbie, our steward, was always attentive to our needs and between him and Ronald, our butler, we never lacked for any creature comforts and/or useful ship advice.

We've been there 12 times...that should say something!

Cabo San Lucas

We've been there 12 times...that should say something! The hurricanes have made the country clean it up. It was very nice.


We spent two days in the city prior to our cruise and enjoyed every place we went...particularly Stanley Park.

Los Angeles

We did not get off.
