5 Puerto Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta
The small, quaint fishing community of Puerto Vallarta, with its cobblestoned streets that seemed to climb straight up to the jungle behind it, was recognized as a city of Mexico in 1918 but was largely unknown to the rest of the world. But in 1963, during the filming of John Huston's "Night of the Iguana," the sleepy town was invaded by reporters hoping to catch a glimpse of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who were carrying on their illicit love affair -- and a tourist industry was born.
AM PM
6 Mazatlan
Mazatlan
..This was our favorite port call on the Mexican Riviera itinerary, a nice sample of the "real Mexico." Located on Mexico's Pacific Coast, just below the Tropic of Cancer, Mazatlan (the name means "land of deer" in the ancient Nahuatl language) has a population of 600,000 and a history that includes pirates, who probably stashed their booty here to hide it from Spanish galleons. Spanish explorers used the port in the 1600s. German immigrants put the place on the map in the 1800s as they developed the city as a port for shipping cargo, and Mazatlan continues to be one of Mexico's major cargo ports (exports include some 40 million pounds of shrimp per year).

Oranjestad, Aruba
Being one of the Dutch Antilles, Aruba still retains its Dutch charm. You will notice this when you see the many windmills that are to be found in the island. Aruba is characterised by fine beaches, sapphire blue waters, almost year-round sunshine and exotic cactus. In the capital Oranjestad, admire the pastel coloured houses and the palm-lined streets. Then go snorkelling and discover the incredible coral formation and tropical fish. Other highlights include gold mine ruins in the countryside, Guadirikiri Caves and the fascinating natural limestone bridge. If you like shopping, you’ll love Aruba and its fabulous shops and outdoor markets.

I was on this ship last year and enjoyed it very much. The staff were friendly and the food was good. Too much at times! Would go again

Just cruised on this ship. The staff are exceptionally good, particularly in the restaurant and the people who take care of the cabins. The problem, as far as we were concerned, was the temperature of the dining room and the theatre. It was Cold! Who takes warm clothes on a cruise.? The food was frequently cold. The coffee was inevitably cold. When requested, the staff would bring hot coffee. The portions of steak were generous and very good. The fish was also good but small, which suited small appetites but felt sure some would find it insufficient. The shows were disappointing. The drinks expensive. Cheaper to organise your own sightseeing visits. The embarkation was horrendous. The passengers were mostly friendly.

Overall the ship were very good. The service onboard was very good with the steward and laundry service being exceptional. The excursions are overpriced and passengers would be better off arranging a local tour once they have disembarked. Each port had many options for booking excursions from taxis to vans. We ordered wine packages before the trip and were told that we would be able to use our wine not only in the restaurants but in the bars as well. When we inquired in the bars the waiters said they did not have time to get the wines which we had ordered. The first 48 hours of food service was served by the staff in an effort to thwart any possible infections that may have been brought onboard. The captain's frequent reminders about hand washing, etc. were helpful. The menu in the Pinnacle restaurant became a little tedious after four dinners there. There should be more options.
