Itinerary: Mexican Riviera
We took our five adult children on this cruise to help us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We had the best time of our life !
We participated in two land excursions. One was the walk in the rain forest and the other was the sail and snorkel excursion. We liked them both but wished the book descriptions were more accurate. Because of our age we probably would not have done the sail & snorkel had we known we had to debark the sailing ship way out in the ocean and swim to shore or just stay in the water the entire time. We are in good shape, but there was a dangerous surf and undertow which we did not hear about prior to being on board.
One caution about reservations in the "spa, or beauty salon" on board ship. There are prices listed but be sure to get them in writing when making reservations. This turned out to be a "bait & switch" for several members of our group. The answer was, "we don't have this service at this time", but it wasn't deleted from the menu nor mentioned at the time of the reservation. It all came to light when the bill was presented!
The Head Waiter & Room Stewards were personable, interested in us and our group, and treated us all with consideration friendliness. We'd go again!
