I am going to add something about my cruise here...Am I wrong, or is the ports on the Mexican Riviera (Ixtapa,Manzanilla, Acapulco..) just not that exciting. I havn't seen one excursion that sounds like too much excitement! Only dinner and the cliff divers. I understand the water is not clear enough to snorkle, the beaches are rocky etc.. Don't get me wrong, I would be thrilled with 8 nights out to sea just for a vacation! I live near the Los Angeles and San Diego ports so that is where we go. When I read about the Carribean I kind of wish I was going there. Anyone want to tell me I'm wrong? I've shopped Tijuana many times since I live just a little more than an hour from there. Mexico only offers so many things to buy. Anyways, I want to say again that I'm excited about cruising don't get me wrong, I'm just having trouble finding exciting or (different) port excursions.

Mexico is a tough place to go these days. Tijuana is an extremely dangerous play to be because of the drug cartels fighting over the
I-5 smuggling corridor. The anti Mexican government factions are seeking to cripple further the Mexican economy by targeting the tourist dollars. There have been some tourist kidnappings (in Acapulco) as an exclamation point to hinder tourist dollars. Personally, I could very easily sit on the ship for 7 days and relax...
