Excellent 7 day itinerary, loved this ship and staff and especially our ocean view room. Very quiet and peaceful. Skip the excursions booked on board, much better value in port (Same tour half price) Camp Ocean is Amazing, they took wonderful care of our kids, made it seamless, and were super chill (not too many unnecessary rules) CABO: Had a beach day in Cabo, walked to Cannery Beach (Playa Empacadora) rented an umbrella for the day for $6 (they were asking $10). MAZLATAN: Took the 3hr city tour that you can book from the terminal, $30US and kids were free! PUERTO VALLARTA: Took our 4yr old on the "Dolphin experience and sea lion kiss" tour, it was perfect! The brochure had a min height requirement of 4'5" so we didnt book, but the Vallarta Adventures people had a booth on the dock and we asked and they said he was fine, so booked it from the dock. Included lunch but it was pretty average. Tour was awesome, I paid $46 to be an "Observer", but they yelled at me not to take a photo at the sea lion kiss (i did anyway, I'd paid almost $50 to be there!). BEHIND THE SCENE TOUR: Available on the last sea day, you can go on a 3hr behind the scenes ship tour, only 32 spots available, so book early, hightly recomend it if your interested in seeing what most passengers dont. $96 and you get to visit the bridge, engine control room, galley, back stage of the show, etc.

Great cabin 2372 on an amazing Cruise!
