I need to choose between two cruises to Mexico. I am trying to decide between the 7 day Carnival Pride out of Long Beach ( Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Cabo San Lucas) or the 8 day Celeb Mercury out of SF (Monteray, Cabo, Mazatlan).
FYI this will be my first cruise ever. My girlfriend and I are in our early 20's and like to party and relax as well. I hear a lot of good things about the Prides entertainment but I also hear their are a lot of kids running around. I live in Santa Cruz, CA so leaving from SF is easier but then again Long Beach is only a 6 hour drive. Prices are about the same.
