1st cruise

Sail Date: April 2017
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
My wife and I had a great time aboard The Miracle. This being our 1st cruise we were not sure what to expect. We know there are bigger ships out there but wanted to start a little smaller.

We found all staff members to be very polite and friendly.

We found there was plenty to do on the ship. The shows were good and the entertainment for the most part throughout the ship was very nice. Wish we would've went to Sam's piano bar before the last night.

We found the dining to be great. Allowed us to try things we normally would never spend money on in a restaurant. The buffetts were not bad either. Loved the breakfast buffet.

Our pets of call were Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. We could've done without Mazatlan but really enjoyed the other two

Overall, we had a great vacation and very positive experience and will definitely do another cruiser. Less

Loved Cabo. Lots of shops and plenty to do and see. Avoided most the street vendors. My wife enjoyed the haggling but it is not my cup of tea. People were friendly and overall had a great time there.

Was not real happy with Mazatlan. Dirty and just not real enjoyable. Would not choose to go there again.

Speed boat ride to small village where we took horses to a waterfall and swimming hole. Really pretty and had beverages and great chips and salsa. From there we snorkeling and then to a secluded Beach for lunch and play. It was beautiful and our guides from Vallarta Adventures, Danny and Cida were great. Wish snorkeling would've lasted longer.
