birthday cruise

Sail Date: February 2010
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
Well here goes, i'll try to describe our vacation as best I can....we were in a mini-suite on the emerald deck....great cabin with a huge balcony....our friends were next door so we were able to open the partition between the two rooms...morning coffee was perfect, juices fine, however a little vodka brought onboard helped steward was nothing's the best info, ask for anytime dining and reserve a table in the santa fe dining room...tip generously to the maitre d' hotel for the best table....make sure you go to the chef's table for a special to just 12 persons...reserve early with jean marc ( he's in charge)...sabatini's specialty restaurant was over the top...way too papardelle i've ever had....sterling's steakhouse was just o.k.....they need to work on the caesar salads...just previously reviewed. the comedian, oscar carlos, was superb...very shows were not worth going to although the effort was More obvious....back to the cabin, sring for the mini-suites if you can, well worth it if you spend any time in the room....don't miss the turkey burgers and hamburgers prepared poolside....we spent our "sun" time upstairs away form the maddening crowds and much less noisy.....horizon court was typical buffet food...some good and then some not sure to visit the gym....very small for such a big wife and I are seasoned travelers so take my info seriously....if you can't stand the smoke of other people, stay out of the casino....very smokey room....ports were no big deal....get the 24 karat gold margaritas with grand marnier....really good drinks...if you need more info you can always get in touch....bottom line...would I go again...absolutely, but only in a mini-suite.... Less
