Okay, so we are trying to decide on an itinerary and are running into a few questions. So we stumbled on this mexican riviera cruise on Carnival. Leaves from LA and goes to Cabo, Puerta Vallarta, and Mazatlan Mexico. And our only concern with this is that it may not feel like you are in an ocean since it hugs the coast most of the cruise. So.. Can you see land through out the cruise? Or does it sail far enough out that all you see is water on four sides???
