Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Balcony
Traveled with children

We chose this cruise due to other family members having booked on same sail date.

The great:

Cruise director: Emma 500 stars. She is a ball of energy and engages people easily in activities, her personality is amazing.

Cabin Review


Great view, location. Close to the bridge (you can actually see into the rear of the bridge )

Can accommodate up to 4 with a pull down bed, sofa and king/twin option on bed.

Balcony is ordinary size.

A bit rocky at the bow but I do not mind.

Average size bathroom with shower. Vanity did have lights, need a card to keep electricity on. Cabin steward seemed tired and apathetic.

Did not have our bed ready, we requested twin and the bed was a king when we walked in.

Port Reviews

Cabo San Lucas

We arrived on land and walked the marina and "took a glass bottom boat " offered by locals. The further you walk the lesser the price it seems.

We saw the arc and scooby rock, as well as lovers and divorce beach.

Only $5 per person. Then they took us to the beach.

Nice walk around town. Visited shops and restaurants .


Took a taxi for $25 to see the cliff divers and the golden zone.

Golden zone there is a hotel where they will get you beach chairs. Lot's of vendors who don't give up.

Cliff divers were amazing.

Taxi to old downtown: saw the church, shopping and walked the "blue line" back to the terminal.

Puerto Vallarta

Very tropical, reminds me of Honolulu.

We took the public bus to the Malecon. (50 cents per person)

Dropped off by "the ladder", visited stores, tequila tasted, walked to beach (south).

Viewed the church.

There is a ton to do in Puerto Vallarta - we had done Eden ATV and zip lining in the past.

Rode the bus back to "Walmart/Liverpool". Less Vendors more relaxing and swimming
