It can be even more fun to bring along some friends for the festivities!

The hundreds of luxury hotels along the corridor north of Cabo San Lucas have transformed this formerly rustic and rowdy outpost into Mexico's most elite resort destination. Although it retains much of its original charm, Cabo San Lucas is no longer the simple town Steinbeck wrote about. It is still legendary for big-game fish, but travelers are now also drawn to its adventure-oriented activities, whale watching, diving and world-class fairways and greens.


Mazatlán spreads for 15 sun-splashed miles along a thumb of land that extends southward into the Pacific just below the Tropic of Cancer. Mazatlán thus marks the beginning of the Mexican tropics: a land full of palm trees, perpetual summer and a refuge from winter cold for growing numbers of international vacationers. Mazatlán’s beauty is renowned. Its coast sprinkled with beckoning islands and miles of golden bleaches and blue lagoons, it aptly deserves its title as “Pearl of the Pacific”. Mazatlan meaning "land of the deer" in the ancient Nahuatl language offers 10 miles of inviting sandy beaches. It's no wonder Mazatlan plays host to more than one million visitors per year. The vacationers come and frolic on the beach beside their “Golden Zone” hotels, while in the old town at the tip of the peninsula, life goes on in the old-Mexico style: in the markets, the churches, and the shady plazas scattered throughout the traditional neighborhoods.


Beyond the cobblestone streets, graceful cathedral, and welcoming atmosphere, Puerto Vallarta offers a wealth of natural beauty and manmade pleasures. Ecotourism activities, shopping and great beaches are highlights. You can mountain bike the Sierra foothills, ocean kayak, or dive with giant mantas in Banderas Bay. Twenty-six miles of beaches extend from the center of town around the bay, many tucked in pristine coves and accessible only by boat. High in the Sierra Madre Mountains, the mystical Huichol Indians still live in relative isolation in an effort to protect their centuries-old culture from outside influences. The main waterfront street is graced with fanciful public sculptures and bordered by lively restaurants, and shops.

Couples' Cruise Group Excursions

As we get closer to cruise time, we will be offering excursion opportunities with the group at these ports (additional costs apply). These are optional, but a fun way to interact with the other couples in the group and enjoy the whole experience even more.
