I agree with RollerDonna's comments regarding the Mexican Riveria. I cruise for the experience of not only days at sea (my favorite part of the cruise) but also for what each port /country brings to the overall experience. I went on a Princess 10 or 11 day cruise years ago from LA down to Acapulco and found that only Mazatlan and Acapulco to be worth getting off the ship. The others were differentiated by only the spelling of the town's names, otherwise they were basically the same. It appears that nothing has really changed except for being older.
