Default Oosterdam to Mexican Riviera

Very excited to be planning activities for our cruise. Going with friends, this will be their first cruise and I'm really hoping I can come up with some things to make it special for them. Ports: PV, Mazatlan and Cabo.

This will be our third cruise, second on HAL. First was to Alaska on Celebrity. Can anyone come up with anything that we could do that might make their first cruise more enjoyable for them?

As you can see by my # of posts I'm relatively new to this board but really appreciate the lack of "in-fighting" that I have come across on other boards. Also appreciate all the input that I have received on my previous posts.

We did a dolphin swim in Cabo. DH was reluctant at first, but I think he enjoyed it more than I did.

In Mazatlan we went to Stone Island. It is a wonderful beach, lots of beach toys and palapas (restaurants) where you can order drink/food and use their tables, lounges free. $1.00 boat trip over from pier which is walkable from cruise terminal.

Check the ports a call thread. You should get lots of ideas.

Have a great cruise,

Congratulations piglet and ediemarie on your upcoming cruise! Ours is only 2 weeks away. Another forum was active and I haven't been on this site for a long time. We didn't sign up for a dolphin swim but maybe next time-sounds like fun.
