Honeymoon Cruise

Josh and I just got back from our week long Mexican Riviera cruise and it was a BLAST! We had a great time and made some new great friends. I was sad to leave, but at the same time missed my doggies and my big bathroom. (Those cruise ship ones are just so tiny)

Our cruise ended up being a little different than planned as there was a big tropical storm (Lowell) that was hitting Cabo the same day we were supposed to be stopping there. So our captain made the decision to skip Cabo since the port was closed, spend an extra day on the ship instead of on land, and go straight to the last stop of Puerto Vallarta. We ended up being there for 2 days because Mazatlan was also being hit by the storm. People, including us, were not happy about the changes and missing out on two of our ports. But in spite of the changes Joah and I had a good time. We took a tour of the city and beach areas and did some shopping on our first day. Then on the second day we went to a resort and hung out on the beach with our new friends Geoff and Desiree. We went jetskiing on the ocean, which is totally different than on a lake! And we had a little problem with the mexican security guards, but still had a good time. The water was so warm it was great!

On Friday our captain made the decision to "try" to stop in Cabo on our way back if the water was calm enough. Turns out it was a beautiful day and we got to spend half of it in beautiful Cabo San Lucas. We went on an excursion with Geoff and Desiree again and it was so much fun! We went on a catamaran out to this beach area then did some snorkling. The water was pretty murky because of the storm that went through the two days before, but there were tons of fish that were not scared of us at all. We were actually more scared of them than they were of us, especially after Geoff got bit by one. lol

We had a lot of fun and got lucky with making some new awesome friends! I'm sad to be back and have to get back to real life, but we made some good memories.
