Gary - - If you do the 11 day - we'll pass on debarking / embarking day!
Imateez - Good luck with whichever line and itinerary you choose - Mexico can be an easy relaxing trip.... we're doing the HAL 10 day Sea of Cortez and Mexican Riviera; have been to all but two of the ports before and are just looking to hang loose. We're partial to HAL - the experience tends to be a bit more laid back and seems to have more things inclusive (ie only one pay restaurant; no checking out of pool towels, things like that). We've seen families on HAL Mexican cruises, even during school time, although definitely not as many as RCCI or Carnival. We're in our mid 50's - early 60's ....
