Ports of Call
Acapulco, Mexico - An enduring image that's been repeated countless times on television and in movies is the brave Mexican cliff diver. These fearless souls often plunge over 100 feet into rock-infested waters; definitely a "don't try this at home (or here)" endeavor. If that's too much exhilaration, pull up a hammock, soak up the sun and surf on Acapulco's world-famous beaches.
Cabo San Lucas - Championship golf courses, world-class deep sea fishing and incredible diving opportunities have transformed Cabo San Lucas, a once sleepy fishing town located on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, into one of the most popular resort destinations in Mexico. Rolling sand dunes and hidden coves dot a countryside ringed by some of the most famous and often-photographed rock formations in the world.
Ixtapa (Zihuatanejo), Mexico - Pronounced iks-tap-ah and zee-hwa-tan-eh-ho, respectively, these lovely Mexican towns are separated by only four miles. The cobblestone streets of Zihuatanejo, formerly a fishing village, take you past a plethora of interesting shops and art galleries. Ixtapa, in contrast to the slightly more commercial nature of Zihuatanejo, is home to what the ancient Nahuatl Indians referred to as "the white place": a beautiful stretch of white-sand beaches.
Mazatlan, Mexico - If you're ready to experience some of the finest sailing and sport fishing available, then you're ready for Mazatlan. This is an exquisite seaside resort by anyone's standards. Of course, you don't have to partake in world-class water sports to enjoy Mazatlan. You can relax on one of its soft-sand beaches caressed by trade winds that are even softer. Or shop for silver jewelry and Mexican crafts in the shops of "The Golden Zone", where you can also celebrate your purchases at one of the area's lively cantinas.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Puerto Vallarta has all the amenities of a classic beach resort ‐ surf, sand and sun‐ but it also offers so much more. Perfect for honeymooners, families and seniors alike, Puerto Vallarta offers sport fishing, golfing, horseback riding, hiking and whale watching. Boasting mountains, jungles, beaches, rivers, and waterfalls, this port is completely different from any other destination in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta is a modern destination that remains loyal to its traditional Mexican roots. And that's just scratching the surface.
San Diego, California - Sunshine and fun are business as usual in San Diego. Walk on Coronado Island's sandy beach, take in the elegant streetscapes of the historic district, have a wild time at the famous San Diego Zoo or a whale of a good time at Sea World.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe.
