The Cat in the Hat Trumps Mickey Mouse Pre-Trip Report, Part 2: Bookings


Who: Rich and Kathy
Mexican Riviera Cruise
May, 2015
Why: Need a Cruise More Than Disneyland

Rich booked the cruise along with the usual travel insurance, hoping we won’t have to use the insurance to cancel the cruise. But Rich’s dad has been in the hospital twice now since his 92nd birthday earlier this month. He’s been having heart problems and at his age, there’s not much the doctors can do. So we’re a bit uneasy about it all. But, as usual, it’s all in God’s hands.

We’ve been discussing shore excursions for our itinerary. We booked the itinerary with an overnight in Puerto Vallarta and a day in Cabo with no Mazatlan, so we could take advantage of the evening in PV. My first trip to PV was in the early 80s and I’m curious to see how it’s all changed. Rich hasn’t been to PV yet.

We’ve read really good reviews about the Rhythms of the Night dinner show, so Rich booked that. Of course, we need to have a day time beach activity so we decided to hang out at one of the resorts within walking distance of the port the next morning. Perhaps we’ll go into town first so Rich can see downtown PV.

In Cabo, we’re thinking we’ll probably stay onboard – we love to hang out by the pool when the other passengers are in port and enjoy a nice quiet day aboard ship.

We booked Nick & Nora’s for dinner on the first formal night. We’re also hoping to book the “Green Eggs & Ham” breakfast, which was the inspiration for the title of this cruise report.
