Feb 4, 2014 - Cabo San Lucas

We arrived in Cabo San Lucas this morning around 7:00 A.M. We had to use the tenders to get ashore this time. Once ashore, we met with out tour group and went on a very nice boat to see the Arch and Lover’s Beach. After the boat tour we went on a bus tour of Cabo San Lucas. After the bus tour we spent time shopping and having lunch at Senor Frog’s. This is a most unusual restaurant, one guy was celebrating his birthday, they gave him all the free beers he could drink. They had a huge hose at the top of the deck on the second floor of the...

Feb 2, 2014 - Super Bowl at Sea

We had a very full and fun day at sea. After we shopped till we dropped in Ensenada, we had the largest super bowl party we have ever attended. They have a huge movie screen on deck 14 where they showed the game. People were in the pool swimming while watching, some were in the Jacuzzi, others were all over the two viewing decks watching in lawn chairs. Jerry and I watched the first half, then the wind picked up and we went inside. They had the best super bowl party we have ever been to. They served chicken wings, BBQ, hot dogs, burgers,...

Nov 26, 2013 - First day in Mexico - sun, fun and exercise!

26 NOV 13 – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Day 5. Today, we visited Mexico for the first time. With a late morning arrival (11:00), we had plenty of time to watch as the Star made her way slowly down the last few kilometres of the Baja California coast and turned into the bay in front of Cabo San Lucas. This port does not have a dock of sufficient size to berth large cruise ships, so we anchored a little way off and were to be tendered ashore in the Star’s own lifeboats. As we had an early private tour booking, we wanted to disembark as early as...

Mar 24, 2013 - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

March 24, 2013 Cabo San Lucas, Mexico We are disappointed that we only have a few hours at this port of call. We arrived at 7 am and sail at about 2 pm. This is a tender port and the last tender back to the ship leaves at 1 pm. We swam with the dolphins today. What a great experience! It was better than I expected. We were in a very large saltwater pool; in groups of 8 people. Each group had a dolphin and trainer. Our dolphin’s name is Aqua, a 26 year old female 550 pounds about 10 feet long. We started out sitting at the edge of the pool...

Jan 12, 2013 - Great News!!! Gil IS FEELING BETTER!!

Gil is feeling SO much better!! So we decided to take a drive up the Baja coast all the way to La Paz. We had a great time. We went to Cabo Pulmo, an ecological marine park, with protected reefs. Then on to El Truinfo, a historic silver mining town, which had a Piano Museum! At one time they had more pianos per capita in the whole country! After that we ventured into La Paz, WAY to big for us, so we chose to hang out at the hotel we rented and just relax for a few days. Before returning to Cabo, we went to another town called Todo Santos...

Cabo 2012/2013

Dec 30, 2012 - at sea toward Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

12/30 at sea toward Cabo There was a huge, gorgeous red sun this morning & I was up in time to see it along with Jean & Jerry. We had a very relaxing day aboard ship. Pam is a bit better, Jerry is improving, and now Jean is having some food issues. In spite of hand sanitizers all over the ship plus cool settings on the A/C, the germs continue to spread. We attended a variety of sessions, but mostly relaxed. Jim spent the morning playing pinochle with his lady friends. (I don’t know how to spell it or play it.) He enjoys this card game and...

Dec 29, 2012 - at sea toward Cabo

12/29 at sea toward Cabo I heard that the sunrise was gorgeous this morning. Jean & Jerry saw it, but I was a few minutes late. Jim gets up early (6:15 ish) to work out; Jean, Jerry & I get up early to watch the sunrise and to drink coffee! With today being a day at sea, there were a number of sessions to attend. Many of the small group sessions on this trip have been dealing with drawing and writing. Perhaps one could have become an artist or an author during the voyage! I attended the Biology on an Island presentation. It was interesting...

Panama Canal Cruise

Dec 8, 2012 - Cabo San Lucas

Up early for breakfast and departure of the ship by tender to our first stop since leaving San Francisco. A place called Cabo San Lucas. Electronic swipe for POB (Persons on Board) and we were off in a bus. First stop a free drink at a restaurant and high vantage point for a few photos. Then to another town to look at Spanish influenced early architecture. A wander around the shops, then back to Cabo for our first Taco and Mescilin drink in Mexico, followed by a Margarita. There are a lot of dressed up skeleton dolls. All started in 1901...

Mar 16, 2012 - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Today we are all up early and down on deck 4 at 7 am ready to catch the first tender away from the ship. Pam & Jack have a vacation home here so they are running the tour today. Our first stop was a hill top restaurant Villa Serena for a Mexican breakfast. The view is of the ocean and the restaurant is open air. I had a shrimp Omlette with fresh & hot flour tortillas and refried beans. The meal was delicious and we were off to San Jose Del Cabo. San Jose Del Cabo is a big artist area and a smaller and quieter community than Cabo San Lucas....

Dec 23, 2011 - Cabo Christmas 2011

Top Notes: - Too many kids at the Hilton, come back here only once you have kids too - Breakfast was great, but they DO add the service charge even if the check they give you has a zero total on it - Bring your own champagne and any Napa wines you want to enjoy (even at Cosco, every wine is double the price of the US) The rooms are nice: Every room has a balcony and we had a nice view over the pool. Note: Even from the 5th floor, you can hear the sounds of the children playing in the water and running around the pool area. This is one of...
