The entertainment was very advanced and my highest rating goes to the set designers wow is all I can say. There are poles in the theater so you had to really hunt to get a good seat. I don't know how you would fix this problem unless you installed clear poles or raised the seats up. We took the wine tour in Mexico which was very nice, but the highlight of the tour was really walking down town after the tour. We asked the local bus drive for a good place for tacos and beer and he told us to eat at a place called "Tacos and Beer" go figure. The food was great and since I don't drink beer the margaritas were perfect. My husband's joke when we got home was you had to order two beers one to clean the table the other to drink.
No it was very clean but it really got to his sister-in-law. We will go back when we do this again. We spent some time in the casino and much prefer this to spending a weekend in Laughlin. The day at sea is the best we shopped a little in the morning and spent the rest of the day sitting on the balcony with drinks and books in hand. I highly recommend this trip. We have decided when we need a weekend away we will do this little cruise. Total bill for air, cruise, tours, drinks, gambling, one bottle of wine from the downtown winery that does not sell in the states, 5 cartons of cigarettes, and t-shirts for 5 grandchildren came to less than 2000.00. Packing was a dream as we only had to take one suitcase. What can I say we are hooked. Cruising is the only way to go. Getting off the ship was even easier as we again had VIP tags.
