Mexican Riviera Cruising - Voted one of the World's Best Cruises
Here's a great Valentine Day present AND a relaxing vacation with just enough down time for everyone. There will be time to shop in all three ports of call along with exploring the local sites. Depending on which shore excursion you choose, you can go zip-cording in two of the ports and horse back riding in at least that many. Swimming with the dolphins is something many look forward to and can be done in Puerto Vallarta.

Welcome to our special page on the Mexican Riviera. We have put great thought into this page and its content to hopefully answer most if not all your questions, even before you might think of them.
Our cruise starts in Long Beach Harbor (Los Angeles) CA. Our ship, the Mariner of the Seas is the largest cruise ship to ever cruise the Pacific Ocean. It will normally leaves the dock for its weekly run at 5pm on Sunday. Monday is a relaxing day at sea, giving you time to kick back and relax from your everyday worries and routines or explore your new homes 1000 by 157 foot features. Since there are 15 decks on this ship it probably will take more than one day. HINT: there is a Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream stand in the Promenade in case you need a fix. If you want to get out of the sun, go to deck 3 at Studio B and go ICE SKATING, thats right this is one of a few ships that even has a ice skating rink on board, and they have ice shows a few times each week.
Get ready because, Tuesday is Cabo San Lucas and all it has to offer. Get up early so you can get in as much shore time as possible we will be there from 9:30am and leave at 6pm. Cabo offers everything from parasailing and zip-cording, to shopping, exploring, and even snuba diving (snuba diving is with a glass helmet with a tube that goes to the surface so you can breath while you walk around on the floor of the Sea of Cortez. Visit Lovers Beach, this is the only beach that is on 2 bodies of water, the Pacific Ocean on the west and the Sea of Cortez on the east. It's located right next to the famous Lands End Arch, where Baja California comes to its end. put in Tuesday.
What’s the old saying goes, “No rest for the weary” will here we go again, Wednesday from 8am till 5:30pm we will be in Mazatlan. You can see everything from how they make tequila to divers jumping off cliffs, to a show on Mexican Indian dancing. Great shopping or just laid back relaxing your choice. We know that cliff diving was made famous in Acapulco but they also have some divers doing it in Mazatlan. Visit the 2nd tallest naturally elevated lighthouse in the world (2nd only to the Rock of Gabriltar.
Remember, Night of the Iguana? or Predator? Will they were both filmed at our third stop is Thursday from 8am until 7pm is Puerto Vallarta. Here you can explore the jungles that Governor Arnold ran through to kill the predator, or see the homes of famous movie stars including where Liz Taylor and Richard Burton lived when making their movie here. Lots to do from partying on the beach, to a river inner-tube run down a jungle stream to swimming with the dolphins.
If you go on the right City Tour you will even end up in a Tequila factory, with free samples.
Friday and Saturday are at sea days heading back to Long Beach. Kick back and enjoy, or if you want play putt-putt golf up top or go ice skating on deck 3, BUT remember one of these nights its lobster for dinner.
Whether you want to try something new like para-sailing, Zip lining, ATVs or Snuba diving, or, just kicking back during your free time it's all available. Hey, if you get tired of the sun and surf go down to deck 3 and go ice skating while on board.

Testimonials From Satisfied Cruise Members
To Whom it may concern,
We recently took a 7 day cruise out of Galveston through AA-Cruises in March 2009. The choice of Ports was excellent, but most all was the organization and execution of the trip. Everything was planned out in detail, and with the pre-trip meeting, we saved lots of aggravation and time when we got to the ship. I would recommend AA-Cruises to anyone that wants a great cruise experience.
Thank you, Steve Ryan
The following is a quote from BOB & DOROTHY of Wilsonville, OR:
"We have taken dozens of different cruises throughout the years, all over the world and have worked with many different cruise companies. AA-Cruises is by far the best cruise company we have ever used. They consistently perform above and beyond any other cruise company we have ever used."
We chose AA-Cruises because of friends that had used them for their cruises. We were completely shocked, they took care of everything from, giving us our cabin number upon down payment, to a window table at main dining, to getting to and from the ship by special carrier. They even explained the different shore excursions and helped us make those reservations. The whole trip was fantastic. Next cruise all we need to do is call AA-Cruises.
