Ass-vice for Those Planning to Cruise the Mexican Riviera

  1. Scuba dive in Puerto Vallerta. 40 feet under the water is the most amazing feeling. ever.
  2. If your cabin only has a shower (no bath) in it, get your legs waxed. That teeny shower can be a nightmare, especially if you have an unnatural fear of shower walls.
  3. Definitely get a room with a balcony, that way you can sit lose count of the whales & dolphins.
  4. Gentlemen (that's what they'll call you on the ship) - don't take your wife into a jewelry store, unless you plan on buying her a really beautiful diamond ring (that she's still trying to figure out how/why she deserves it).
  5. Order the lobster as often as you can, unless you're creeped out by the whole water-bug thing.
  6. Just give it up from the start & realize that you're going to gain ten pounds on this trip. That way you can really enjoy all the fantastic food & eat dessert with every meal like you want to.
  7. Wear sunscreen, even in preparation for the cruise (did I mention the sunburn incident of 2006? Soon followed by the peeling incident of 2006).
  8. One way to clear a spa: get in while you look like a leprosy patient.
  9. Do your absolute best not to piss off the guy who cleans your cabin. He will confiscate your comforter.
  10. Give the guy a comment card singing his high praises & he will tell you where he hid your comforter (laundry is his story).
  11. Immediately after he tells you your comforter should be back tonight, go in your room, close the door and laugh hysterically about how he thinks your are dirty Americans and about his name.
  12. Thalerngsak. Really. He said we could call him Sak. When the door was closed, we called him Thundersack. Pretty sure he heard.
  13. Never see your nice warm comforter again.
  14. Don't bother getting off the boat in Mazatlan, it feels just like Tijuana.
  15. Spend as much time as possible in Cabo, it's beautiful.
  16. Speak spanish to as many Mexicans as you can.
  17. They always like it when you ask in spanish where the bathroom is. It's even better when they point out two different bathrooms & you ask who is cleaner.
Pictures & more ass-vice tomorrow. xoxo

Sounds like you had a good time! I have to agree that scuba is great! How weird is it to be able to see a whole new world and not have to worry about air!!! Glad you had a good time. Thought about you lots.
Miss Ya!
