Cabo San Lucas, Mexico:

Millennia ago, Cabo San Lucas was part of the Mexican mainland. Then a massive rupture of the San Andreas Fault sent the waters of the Pacific crashing into the newly formed depression, creating the Sea of Cortez and the Baja Peninsula. Lying at the very tip of Baja, where the Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez, Cabo San Lucas - or "Cabo" - is one of the premier resort destinations in the Western Hemisphere. Swim in the transparent waters, marvel at the wealth of marine life, relax on one of the white-sand beaches or try your hand at some of the finest sportfishing in the world.


Cabo San Lucas

We loved Cabo San Lucas. Lou and Karen had been to Cabo 4 times in the past but it was the first time for Carol. We went whale watching on a small Zodiac boat so we were very close to the action. We saw several humpbacks swimming and a few of them breaching. It was awesome!

The Famous Arch & Whale Watching By Speed Boat:

Set off in search of magnificent humpback whales and frolicking pods of dolphins when you climb aboard a zippy high-speed inflatable boat on an exhilarating two hour adventure off the sparkling waters of Cabo San Lucas. From December 15th through April 15th, the waters of Cabo San Lucas fill with magnificent humpback whales, creating optimal whale-watching conditions. Although sightings are not guaranteed, excursions in these waters have a high success rate. If whales are spotted, the agile nature of the vessel allows the captain to get up close and personal for a unique encounter and spectacular nature photographs. The waters are also home to a plentiful dolphin population. Your two hour cruise is ample time to relax, learn about the rich marine life from an onboard whale expert and take in the natural wonders of Cabo. Bring a light jacket, your sunscreen and of course a camera!


Mazatlan, Mexico:

Lying just below the Tropic of Cancer, Mazatlan boasts a superb year-round climate. Mazatlan, a name that means "Place of the Deer," sits on a peninsula at the feet of the rugged Sierra Madre, and the Cerro de Neveria - "Ice Box Hill" - divides the area's rocky Pacific beaches from the broad, white-sand beaches beloved by visitors. The climate, the beaches, and the world-class sportfishing have turned this commercial fishing port into one of the world's top resort destinations. Yet while visitors flock to the markets, bathe in the sun, or marvel at the airborne ballet of the famed Papantla dancers, Mazatlan remains one of Mexico's major Pacific ports - the city exports over 40 million pounds of shrimp every year.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico:

Puerto Vallarta was sleepy no more; its transformation into an international resort had begun. Then director John Huston chose the village as the location for his film "Night of the Iguana," starring Richard Burton. Today, the city has its own "Gringo Gulch," a haunt of the rich and famous. Travelers are also drawn by its climate, its excellent shopping - which offers great values on leather goods, jewelry, and handicrafts - and mile after mile of palm-lined beaches.

The view of the wake from our balcony. We love having a stateroom in the back of the ship (aft). The views are enormous and we enjoy seeing and hearing the wake.

This trip Lou bid on a penthouse suite and won the bid! The suite was much bigger than a mini suite and had a very large balcony. This is the morning view from our balcony as we cruise the Mexican Riviera.

We had breakfast in Sabatini's restaurant every morning. We really enjoyed spending time with this mother and son duo almost every morning at breakfast. Meet Mark and his mom, Lynne. They were both warm and friendly people and cruise together often. I hope we meet again!

Today we were in Mazatlan but the port did not look very good so we enjoyed the ship.
