Default We're booked -- Acapulco, we're coming back in Nov.

Hi everyone,

Sorry to be so quiet for the past week -- had work, personal things, and some medical things that I've been dealing with.

But *of course* in between, I booked our fall cruise -- 8 nights on Norwegian Star to Acapulco,l Zijuatenejo, Cabo and Puerto Vallarta. Zijuatenjo and PV are two fave ports of ours, and only done the Acapulco cruise 1 times about 3 years ago. We set sail Nov. 14. Got a balcony with everything included for $889 pp, so can't beat that (also got a $75 credit).

I was intent on doing Acapulco again, because the days at sea are great, so it was NCL or the Spirit (for the 3rd time). It's been 5 years since we were on NCL, so looking forward to anytime dining with them.

Harry

Sounds like a great trip Harry! Dave and I stayed at the Acapulco Fairmont Princess hotel a few years ago on a trip for his work....the hotel was great....we enjoyed the cliff divers show at La Quebrada (?)

We took NCL on the Sky in 2001 (now it's Pride of Aloha). Enjoyed the line, except for the hard beds, but can deal with that. :-)

Nothing too bad medically ... just blood pressure, cholesterol, anxiety, triglycerides, etc etc etc.

Yipee.

:-)

Congrats on the booking and hope all is well!

I still haven't done the Mexican Riviera, I will get there some day. I keep talking about it and will go some time!

I'll be interested in your review, I haven't sailed with NCL in 10 yrs. I do have, hmmmm, 5 cruises with them, I think.

We were last in Acapulco on Nov 2nd. But this cruise, we will be there Nov 16th. I'm hoping the weather will be a little better, because it was humid and about 90. At this time of the year, the weather gets better day by day.

Looking for reviews and will be posting one.

Harry
