Default We are booked! Cruisemates West Coast sailing!!

Woo-hoo!

Just booked with Ginny for the West Coast Cruisemates cruise on the Pride. (We could NOT pass up the rate on a balcony!!)

Ginny was a sweetheart!!

On Feb. 1, after the holidays are done, we are setting off for 7 nights on the Carnival Pride (sister to the Spirit) to Cabo, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta from L.A.

This class is our top 2 favorite ships (fantastic cabin!) and the weather should be sublime. Plus we could not match the below price for any balcony on the West Coast.

Now to find who else will be joining us.

Harry (1st Cruisemates cruise!!)

hey Harry.. Congratulations!! They really are AMAZING rates on those balconies, and even more so with the upgrades.

Check the CM cruises message board. There's a couple of the other folks who've booked posting there.. looking to share the excitement.

I'm a happy camper!!

Congratulations!

Harry, Wednesday night is when you'll be in P.V. That is the night of the week when the Bullfight is scheduled. Although there is some gore, I do recommend at least one bullfight in the life of anyone who likes Mexico as much as you guys.

The Plaza del Toros is almost across the street from the terminal. I remember it being less than a mile or two north on the opposite side of the main drag. You'll be in port until 10 P.M. and the bullfight lets out at about 8P.M. or so. Get there early if you don't want to sit on the side with the sun in your eyes.

Anyway that is my recommendation not to mention Mariscos Polo for a pulpo
burrito lunch. The idea of an octopus burrito sounds odd but they are about as good as anything I have ever eaten. Polo, the owner, is a wonderful man. He and his family run the restaurant and it is great. Margaritas here are excellent too! This is not a tourist destination, mostly locals.

If you don't go to the bullfight, Las Carmalitas restaurant is way on top of the mountain and has fabulous steaks and an incredible view. Chickens and dogs run through this rustic palapa style restaurant while you eat. They grow their own beef.The taxi ride is most adventuresome but well worth the trama.

I promise you won't be sorry at either of these restaurants.

Chuck, I like the sound of the bull fight -- been to one ... now that would be an excursion! Just gotta get Art to say OK.

More likely one of the restaurants you mentioned.

Guess what?!! Capt Ron and I just booked too! When I read that Harry and Art were going to be on the cruise, (well....the price Ginny gave us didn't hurt either)....I just had to go for it! Assuming it's not too late to get it Sunday morning, we should have an aft suite. I'll post the room number as soon as I'm sure. Can't wait to meet for drinks!! We'll probably stay over night at the Sheraton again. It's so cool to see the ship in port from the hotel room!

Jazzed!!!

Shar

I am so jazzed too, Shar!!!

We are jealous for the aft suite!

We are 8182 on the Panorama deck (extended balcony) but Marci is also aft too.

Woo-Hoo!!

Shar, Cruiseguy, Marci, Mark, et al ...

Pardon the soon-to-be-generic message, but I was thinking let's consolidate trip/port/hotel/cruise sharing information under a new thread.

That way we can all check under one message thread for news about the Cruisemates cruise on the Pride (and all others joining us will know where to go).

I will set up a new post/thread titled "Cruisemates Cruise on the Pride" under the "Cruisemates Cruises" section under "People."

I hope this way all of us can check in for the latest news in the quickest manner -- we had about 4-5 notes going on different boards here.

Hope that's OK. ... Gonna post this on the other message threads now, too.

Harry
