Have a great trip! Be careful at The Hotel California. Rumor has it that you can check in any time you like, but you can never leave

Thanks, but I'm more worried about her Tiffany-twisted mind, being a prisoner of my own device, the feast in the master's chambers, and the steely knives.......................:classic_cool:

I was on it last week as well. There were a few minor cosmetic dings here and there, but not anything that would detract from enjoying the cruise. I was comfortable in my cabin and elsewhere on the ship, and I was impressed by the service I received.

 

On ship, I went to almost every Lincoln Center Stage performance; they were wonderful! The BBC Earth movie with live music was excellent, the BB King All-stars were really good, and I enjoyed listening to the dualing pianos whilst losing $100 in the casino (ouch!). I also enjoyed the Mexican dancers and Mariachi band. The only other entertainment I saw was a main stage song and dance performance. I found it to be a bit too cornball for my tastes.

 

Regarding food, I mostly ate at the Lido, which was good enough for the most part. I wasn't super impressed by the MDR, so didn't bother going more than twice. The Dive In burger I had was decent. Rudi's Sel de Mer is a bit pricy, but I love French cuisine and really enjoyed it. I also ate at Canaletto, which I highly recommend. You definitely get far more than you pay for in terms of quality.

 

I didn't do any excursions in port and skipped Cabo. I walked the blue line from the ship to old Mazatlan, which was nice, and their basillica is beautiful. As for those concerned about safety, don't be. Plenty of law enforcement and expat volunteers were around to help if you needed it. Plus, the residents I spoke too were all pleasant and helpful. Trust me, It's touristy and crowded; no drug cartel members are going to assault you. 

 

In Puerto Vallarta I walked the Malecon and around old town, visited their church, and then stopped in Wal-Mart for the free Wi-Fi and to buy some Mexican snacks. Some of the market hawkers in old town were a bit aggressive, but a simple "no, gracias," while walking away does the trick. 

 

Honestly, my favorite thing about the whole trip was just being at sea in general. I saw flying fish, dolphins, whales, and plenty of different sea birds, and sunset and sunrise were great to watch. Also, I loved observing the arrival and departure maneuvers at ports, and though the seas were mild, there was enough sway on sea days to make this boat lover happy.

That's nice of you, thanks but no, we're going back home on the 6th. Just a little vac to spend New Years at sea

What port were they on? Do they still do a Mexican Fiesta type meal out by the Lido pool one night? Just curious, if anyone knows?
