A fun getaway from the rain in Seattle to the sun in Cabo!
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: San Diego
Negatives: Water in stateroom - I noticed the first night it turned my washcloth brown. Didn't drink that water. We didn't buy More bottled water but only drank the water they had in the beverage areas...hopefully from a different source. Luggage delivery - luggage was left in the hall for anyone to take. One of my bags had the handle ripped off with all the ID info. so we did not get it until about 8 pm when we went to Customer service. They had it locked in a room to the side but we called 2 times and no one mentioned any luggage that was unable to be delivered due to this. Internet access slow and expensive. Limited TV channels may make some people feel very cut off. I didn't mind it but some people may. Also, no irons in the staterooms.
Disembarkation - we asked for early exit even though our flights home were not until 1 and 2 pm. We were at the airport by 10 am. I think the group in this category was rather large so it was a bit of a slow process and felt a bit like cows being herded. We met in the theater at 8:30 and we were probably off the ship and our luggage collected by 9:15. Trip to airport was $12.50, and with it being Monday morning there was more traffic than when we arrived.
Overall, it was a great value and time and I look forward to many more! Less
Cabin review: 7000
Quite cabin, can not keep blinds open at night since it is at the very front of the ship and captain requires it to be dark. Water quality suspect. Tiny shower. One porthole window over bed, couldn't see much water but at least we knew if it was day or night. Good storage and closet size. Porthole area (between bed and window) appeared dirty. A long walk to the other end of the ship but close to the theater and elevators that are not too busy.
