Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2010
Cabin: Large Ocean View Stateroom

This was our first time cruising and we're glad we did it with RCI. We had a fantastic time, met a lot of wonderful people on the ship and off and are looking forward to going on a cruise again some day.

This is a great cruise because it stops in six ports. My very own six pack. Each port was a joy to visit (except for one) and have the pictures to prove it. :)

Emarkation and deemarkation was smooth, quick and efficient .

Cabin Review

Large Ocean View Stateroom

Cabin H

I was quite shocked at how large the cabin's closet's were. And there was ample storage space anywhere and every where. The shower is quite small, but we adjusted quickly and got into the cruise life fast and hard. :) We were in the very back of the ship on the third floor and it was so quiet, it was unreal. We loved our room and don't have any complaints about anything to do with the rooms.

Port Reviews

Cabo San Lucas

We went on an excursion for Cabo that was on a boat, sailing all around showing us the sights. I thought it might be a little much since we were already on a ship, and what do I do but book an excursion on a boat. But to our surprise, we both loved it a great deal. We had an excellent time. The Hard Rock Cafe has great food.

Puerto Vallarta

We had a terrific time here, doing a little bit of everything. Great fun to be had by both of us.

Acapulco

We were very disappointed with the Acapulco City Tour and Cliff Divers. Don't get me wrong, the Cliff Divers were nice to see, but it was short-lived and we paid $100.00 for the two of us to see the city. After all, it's called a City Tour. But instead, the guide had the driver drive up and down a very long street and the guide pointed out all of the Amercian restaurants to be seen in their town. It was supposed to go until 1:30, but he dropped us off at 11:45, which was a god-send, we sure as hell didn't want to spend another hour looking at McDonalds and Burger King. (This is no exageration, this is what he had us looking at.) There was supposed to be a snack, but we got none. We've flown to Acapulco before, so we had toured the city and loved it ten years ago. We hoped to see the difference this time, but alas, when he dropped us off at the ship, we just gave up. We weren't going to pay for another excursion. So we didn't have a good time at all in Acapulco. We filed a complaint with RCI, but haven't heard a word back from them and I really doubt that we would get our money back.

Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo

This was a beautiful place to be. We went on a tour of the city and then walked around on our own aftewards and did some shopping. It was such a gorgeous city and we enjoyed every moment we were there.
