Anyone thinking about a cruise should defiantly consider this one. A whole week of fun and relaxation. The crew was wonderful, the food was excellent-and you can eat anytime of the day or night-in your cabin, or at the all day, all night pizzeria. I've eaten a lot of pizza in my life-but this was far the best I've ever had. We didn't do any excursions and just went out on our own-and we still had a blast. In Cabo San Lucas, there wasn't a whole lot of time-and we didn't see much, but what we did see, was very typical. Mazatlan was probably the best for us. There is so much to see, and the prices are great too. Puerto Vallarta was fun, but a little scary-there are taxi's everywhere-and lots of traffic-but no one follows any "road-rules"-and the streets are all cobblestone.

When taking a taxi, I highly recommend wearing a seat belt-and negotiate the price before hand! We went with three teenagers, and they had a blast just doing what they wanted on ship-but I insisted we stay together in port. This trip was so well worth the money. The ship is beautiful and clean. The shows were fantastic! If you read negative reviews-they are probably written by people who would complain regardless. We can't wait for our next cruise and we will defiantly cruise with Carnival Cruise Lines!!
