Mexican Riviera Cruise
Looking through photos of past vacations is always so fun for us. In January of this year Danielle and I had the chance to enjoy an 8 day Mexican Riviera Cruise on Carnival. The cruise left from San Diego and hit the ports of Acapulco, Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, and Manzanillo. We both absolutely LOVED the cruise and agree that it is a great way to get away and vacation. Here are a few reasons we loved it so much:
1) Taking a cruise is about as close as you can come to a hassle free vacation. Once on the boat you have EVERYTHING at your fingertips, or just a phone call away. You have people cleaning your room for you 3 times a day! Food is available any time and basically anywhere. There are no worries once you are aboard.

2)We got to eat amazing food that we don't eat on a daily basis. You can also order as much food as you want... and eat what you like and leave what you don't like. We got to enjoy Lobster and Shrimp:
But there was also nothing wrong with trying something crazy like Duck:
3) On a cruise you get to spend time with people you love! Being on a cruise is so relaxing and hassle free that it makes it easy to simply enjoy the time spent with loved ones. We got to spend plenty of time with just Danielle and I, but also hung out a lot with my amazing parents!

4) The last thing we loved about cruising was getting to see some beautiful and amazing places. The people in Mexico are usually fun to interact with and talk to. The ports that we stopped in were pretty amazing. I doubt we would have ever gotten the chance to see these beautiful places if it wasn't for taking this cruise.
If any of you guys get a chance to take a cruise we say go for it! We are sure you will have as much fun as we did.
