Default West Coast Mexican Cruises...a thing of the past.

Well I guess that the West Coast 7 & 8 Day Mexican Riveria cruises are a thing of the past. But there are still a few exceptions. There is a 3, 4, day, (Baja Cruise), and 7 day cruise, but they don't go to certain ports of call anymore. All the Controversy about Mexico is to blame. We really enjoyed the 8 day Exotic Mexican Riveria cruise that departed from San Diego, and cruised to Manzanillo, Istapa / Zihuatanejo and Acapulco Mexico aboard the Carnival Spirit. We'd love to go on that cruise again. Also it doesn't look like any other cruise line is going to Mexico either.
What are your thoughts?

One cruise we really enjoyed was a 10 day Mexican Riviera cruise on Serenade of the Seas.

We enjoyed all the ports and it was a cruise we look back with fond memories.

I do hope they return but the money just wasn't there anymore. Hopefully the Mexican propaganda will lessen and they will return.

Take care,
Mike

Reminds me of the old Vietnam joke when planes were bringing in new troops. The pilot's announcement:

"We will be landing soon. The temperature on the ground is 96 degrees and the humidity is 98%. The winds are calm and the ground fire is light to moderate!"

Just looked at Princess cruise line they have 27 cruises to Mexico from April of this year to April 2013. We are thinking about a 10 day Mexico Cruise out of San Fransico.

That's sad to hear. We just did the Mexican Riviera on the Splendor last May and it was WONDERFUL! Mazatlan was a favorite, we had planned to return

Well it's not quite in the past for me as we are going on our first cruise EVER in June for our Honeymoon. It will be on the Splendor to the Mexican Riviera.

I would be frustrated if we had cruised in the past being that they cancelled a port and I wanted to experience more than just being on the boat.

Being though that it is our first cruise I have to say I could care less if they sailed away from shore and sat there for the full 8 days I'm just excited to be going on a boat, dressing up for formal night, casino and relaxing with just us two.
