Update...

My in-laws just checked in and were made aware that due to a storm / weather there has been a change to the MR intinerary.

Sunday - Sea
Monday - Sea
Tuesday - Cabo
Wed. - Cabo
Thurs - Sea
Friday - Sea
Saturday - Ensenada
Sunday - Home

I am currently scrambling to try and find something nice for them to do in Ensenada, you future MR cruisers may want to get a back up plan on the burners just in case one of your stops are replaced with Ensenada.

I can tell u first hand Ensenada has very very little to offer... I have been there before and if put in the position of having my itinerary change I would probably stay on the ship.... That is just my personal preference.

Awesome Pirate outfits on the girls! Where did you get them? ALso did you notice if they still do teatime with Alice on board? where you have to get special tickets at guest services?

Thanks!

Wow, we are going on Sunday and I have been really worries about the storm/hurricane as well. I hope it clears up so we can go to PV! Especially since we have the pirate excursion booked.
Thank you so much for your report! Just what I needed! I don't want to miss a thing! Could you please PM me the name of the resort in Cabo as well? I'd like to do that.
Also- I have written down your name for the DVC. I will give it to them. So excited!!! Thanks!
P.S. What is the deal with fish extenders? Necessary?

Hello! We were on this cruise with you and I've been taking snippets of your report and sending them to a friend who is taking this cruise next year.

My friend would also like the name of the resort in Cabo. Do you mind PMing me the name?

Thanks!!!!

I was on this same cruise although it was our first cruise we'd seen a number of posts asking the same question. From talks with staff members etc I think the bulk of the upgrades that were made during time in dry dock were behind the scenes ie plumbing; better internet access provided for staff etc.

Thanks!
They offer a party of sorts with the characters. This was referred to as tea with friends I believe.... This is completely separate from the character breakfast and YES you do need a special admission ticket to participate. My suggestion would be to head straight to customer service desk once on board and ask if there are ANY special character interaction events like, tea.........
We have been on several cruises and it seems like it is always called something different.....
Princess tea party
Tea with Mad Hatter
Tea with Alice and friends

Good luck!!!

Girls Pirate Costumes....

I have had several PM's regarding this so I thought I would post the answer.
The girls pirate costume is actually a pirate dress that I tweaked..... Instead of them wearing as a dress I put 2 tutu's over the bottom part of the dress, one red and then a black one on top, so only the top part of the dress was showing. They r wearing thigh high socks that I got from a halloween costume store and the shoes are calf high sketchers that are covered in black sequins they look like they r lace up but they r not they have zippers to zip up the shoe. The eye patch I also got from a Halloween store and then I used a hot glue gun to put some bling on it.

GREAT! I'm going to use tutus as well, I just couldn't figure out how you did the tops! AH HA!

Thanks for the info!

Great report! I am getting so excited for my MR cruise.

question about Las Calaetas excursion

You mentioned kids can zipline ... do you recall how much $$ that is and the ages of kids who can zipline ? I have a 13 year old and 2 -16 year olds who would love to do this.

Well from what I remember the ages was 3-11 years old, it is a kids canopy adventure. I think it was $20 additional but I am not positive. I didn't even bother asking as my kids were more interested in the paddle and snorkeling.........sorry. If you are interested in a zip lining adventure I have heard nothing but great things about Los Veranos in Puerto Vallarta, they even showed the President of Mexico and his kids doing this adventure on a show called "Mexico, the Royal Tour".
