  1. Found this one that came in email on 8/31: "Earn Up to 25 Bonus Club Points when you book a Veranda stateroom or above on selected 2019 repositioning cruises."
  2. How much per person for a week's access to the thermal spa?
  3. Cabo Adventures building (where they have the dolphin interactions) is just a short (5-10 minutes?) walk from the pier after you leave the tender. But even better - the boats left right from the marina very near where you tender in.
  4. If it is with Vallarta Food Tours, we've been with them twice (downtown tour and taste of Pitiyall) and both were excellent with terrific guides. Also, you get to see some areas of town you might not venture on your own.
  5. I'd recommend googling Cabo Adventures and looking at their offerings. We did a very nice "luxury day sail" that they ran (offered through Princess) and also the camel riding (we bought direct). Both were top-notch excursions with good food & drink, interesting narration, and very professional.
  6. We used one from the TA about 4 years ago. Was not garage parking but was fenced-in outdoor parking. We did not have any trouble using the pass.
  7. This is correct - Cafe Al Baccio usually has one (or more) gluten-free options like cookies, desserts, etc. And the grill (out by pool) made my wife a burger with a lettuce "bun" - but this was not on the menu and may have just been us finding an accommodating crew member!
  8. This! Was on Royal in D730 on last sailing in March.
  9. Mazatlan - ride horses on the beach with Maria's Happy Horses. $35pp includes transportation from cruise terminal, riding, and and a drink at a beach club (was Victor's or Lety's for us). Great value, nice day. Puerto Vallarta - try a walking food tour with Vallarta Food Tours. We've done both the downtown tour and the Pitiyall tour and both were terrific. You walk around parts of town you wouldn't otherwise get to, try a lot of new and interesting foods (of course, pork, beef, shrimp, fish, but also octopus, goat, and even my first toasted cricket!). I think was $50 pp. Cabo - ride camels with Cabo Adventures. You get transportation, a 4x4 ride through more rugged terrain, short hike, camel knowledge and ride on beach, and an awesome lunch. I think was $110 pp. We've also done a half-day "luxury sail" with same company which included great food, snorkeling and paddle boarding, nice sailing, etc. - I think it was similarly priced. Have a great time!
  10. I couldn't help but notice your posting avatar (Seahawk) - I believe it was in Mazatlan in the cruise terminal that a shop was selling t-shirts that said Mazatlan/Mexico and "Si Hawks" with a surely unofficially not-licensed logo (Seahawk was wearing a sombrero); if I was a Seattle fan it would be a fun shirt.
  11. Another thing I forgot to mention - the day AFTER the movies are shown on MUTS, they appear in the free "on demand" movies listing on your cabin TV. There was a pretty good selection of movies to work through.
  12. We did not use the laundry (took too many clothes like normal...) but I recall (from different ship/sailing) that it seemed open anytime (I did not see any mention in the patters). I have no clue if you need cash or card/medallion, or what these days!
  13. Apologies, I don't remember what they served on buffet on French night - we went to the MDR for formal night #2 (and had lobster tail with risotto, and Chocolate Journeys Pistachio Dome for dessert!)
  14. We purchased the balcony dinner in advance using the cruise personlizer, but we had to schedule it once onboard. I recommend doing that as soon as possible (day 1) so you get your pick of days and times. The dinner is very similar quality to what you get in Crown Grill, but more. You can order surf and turf (lobster tail and filet) for no extra fee (+$10 pp in Crown Grill) and you also get 1 pre-dinner cocktail per person, canapes, a half-bottle of real champagne, a professional photo (actually they take 5-6 and you get to pick one for free), and flowers (which you get to keep - so if you schedule early in the week you'll have fresh flowers in your cabin all week). You also get fantastic, personalized service and the food is cooked specifically to order (no assembly line). I really feel like this is the best deal on board (we've done this probably 5 times over the years!) Just do it!
  15. No buffet menus posted, but each evening you receive the "Patter" for the next day and it tells you (on the back/last page) what the theme for the evening buffet is.
