Our first stop on this 10 day Mexican Riviera Cruise was Cabo San Lucas. Many people stayed on board.
I used to love Cabo San Lucas. A few visits later, I liked Cabo San Lucas. Today I joined Crystal and have no plans to come again. Cabo has a construction jones. Stuff pops up with no particular guidelines, and thus, like a weed, comes the ugliest building in North America.
Not too long ago there was a definite presence of Army personnel, AK 47’s at the ready. Today only two military guards were visible, and they were Navy.
Christmas is also coming to Symphony. Everywhere you look, some effigy representing the season stares back.
Chanukah wasn’t ignored,
The food in the main dining room is delicious. The wait staff efficient, and my waiter, Jose, each night has a recommendation for the main dish. He never misses. As well as the main dining room, we have Prego, Silk Road, and Sushi, or one can order from the main menu comfortably tucked away in their cabin. Surprise for sure, there is no evening meal served in the Lido. This is unusual for any cruise ship.
We had a couple of “meet and greets”. Cruise Critic is a web site that has roll calls for cruisers sailing on the same ship. There is a get together and the ship provides cocktails and canapés. The Captain and sundry officers usually stop by.
Later, in the evening, single and unaccompanied guests were invited to a cocktail party to get together with the Cruise Director (an old friend), the Ambassador Hosts (they dance with single ladies), and members of the Crystal Ensemble of Singers and Dancers (the production show performers).
That last got my attention. I mostly avoid cruise ship shows as they are kind of goofy, but this group was outstanding.
Well, one showed up,
but we didn’t talk.
Adios Cabo San Lucas.
