10-Day Carnival Spirit Cruise
Ensenada, Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Manzanillo
November 18-27, 2011
We love this time of year! But this time, we were not only celebrating our annual Thanksgiving week vacation, but it was also John's 50th birthday. This is a great way to celebrate. We just LOVE cruising. For us, it's cheaper to cruise than to stay home most of the time! This was John's 23rd and my 18th cruise. And we can't wait for the next one (in 42 days ... but who's counting?)

Right off the pier, you can easily book tours for snorkeling, beaches, and para-sailing. They're about 1/3 of the price of the cruise excursions.
On the 2nd day at Cabo, we took another glass-bottom boat ride to the beach, but first we went para-sailing. That was a blast! Yes, it was a little scary at first (as you can see me screaming in the picture at the left), but then very cool. It was only our second time doing this. We just couldn't believe how soaked we got just by sitting on the boat ... constant waves splashing us ... so make sure it's a WARM day when you go, or you'll freeze!
We stopped in Puerto Vallarta next, but it was so hot and humid and not much we wanted to do there, so we just walked around for a while, picked up a few souvenirs, and went back on the ship to go chill in the pool for the first time ever. The next day, we ported in Manzanillo. We found a taxi driver to take us to a private beach and then drive all around, so it was an absolutely beautiful day.
