Puerto Vallarta 1Mile long Boardwalk/Malecon

Great cruise, familiar ports (Cabo, La Paz, Loredo, Puerto Vallarta), good food onboard, exceptional staff and area has lovely weather. Cabo port requires using a tender to get to the pier. Since 2 other cruise ships were already there, our ship used its tenders which are a bit slower than Cabo's. La Paz is a walk-off port and a 40 minute bus ride to town. Once there, you'll see fun sculptures on the boardwalk and lots of good cafes! Plus, Sears is still there!! Loredo is a walk off port and is a lovely, sweet little town...quiet and has good local shopping. Puerto Vallarta is walk off and fun!!

Onboard, few people, except for staff, masked or distanced. Fortunately, Covid didn't hit us until we got home!! Not so fortunate for our loved ones! Fortunately we were all "double shot & boosted". Unfortunately, some passengers have other conditions to be concerned about too. BIG dilemma. To cruise or not to cruise. For me the answer will evolve.

However, those I'm concerned about most are the ship staff who see thousands of passengers every week or so. Could we mask up for them?? We need them to cruise. We need them to eat. We need them in order to have ourselves a great time!! They need us for their jobs, their family support, their enhanced experience onboard ship, day after day. We can do it for them! Win-Win!!
