Day 9 – Manzanillo

Today was our final port of call in Manzanillo, Mexico.  The ship docks in a large industrial shipping port and getting off the ship can be a pain in the butt.  You get off and get on a bus that transports you to the center of town where you can get on a taxi or […]

Day 8 – Zihuatenejo

Today, our ship, the Celebrity Mercury, docked in Zihuatenejo, Mexico.  This town is a small, quaint little fishing town on the coast of Mexico.  It looks almost the same as it did 3 years ago when we last visited.  Most of the other ports we had visited, had changed somewhat in the past three years. […]

Day 7 – Acapulco

Today our port of call was Acapulco, Mexico on our wonderful cruise to Mexico on board the Celebrity Cruises Mercury.  The weather continues to be outstanding though it was overcast this morning.  However, the clouds burned off by noon and the sunny weather continued.  The humidity has also risen to high numbers, but its bearable. […]

Day 6 – At Sea

And a gloriuos day it was.  The weather remains perfect and yesterday was the best day of the cruise for me.  I just love days at sea.  They are so peaceful and relaxing.  One is free to do what they want on the ship.  I like to spend time just staring at the ocean of […]

Day 5 – Puerto Vallarta

Today, our port of call is Puerto Vallarta.  The weather is fabulous once again.  There are very few clouds in the sky and no wind.  The weather is comfortable with moderate humidity which I could do without.  As it has been the entire cruise, the water remains unbelievably calm meaning very smooth sailing. Suzanne frequents […]

Day 4 – Mazatlan

Day 4 was in the Mexican port city of Mazatlan.  This city is an industrial port with lots of commerce shipping.  Upon leaving the boat you get on a little trolley that takes you through the port to the exit so you dont have to get lost or run over by the port activity.  As […]

Day 3 – Cabo San Lucas

Yesterday was our first day in port as we visited Cabo San Lucas.  It was another beautiful day with temperatures reaching about 80.  You can feel the heat rising as we head South.  Skies were once again clear and calm although the harbor where we dropped anchor was a bit choppy. We had a scheduled […]

Day 2 – At Sea

Yesterday was a wonderful day at sea on our way to Mexico aboard the Celebrity Mercury.  The days at sea are the best for me.  Most ports, I dont really care if we get off the boat or not.  We usually do, but its certainly not a priority for me.  The weather yesterday was absolutely […]

Mexico Cruise 2006 – Day 1

Day 1 of our 2006 Celebrity Mercury cruise to Mexico is in the books and it was a fun one! We boarded the Mercury in San Diego about noon.  We grabbed a quick lunch on board at the grill and plotted out our day.  The first day, Suzanne always likes to take her video camera […]

A Night in San Diego

Well, we arrived in San Diego yesterday afternoon after a bit of a drive.  I had wanted to fly to San Diefo to get to the cruise ship, but Suzanne wanted to drive.  In a compromise, we agreed to drive, but she would do the drving, which is a challenge in of itself, as I dont […]
