Feb 23, 2018 - Cabo San Lucas and Whale Watch

Cabo San Lucas and Whale Watch We had to get up early today. We boarded one of the first tenders to shore in Cabo San Lucas. It was a short 10 minute boat ride to the tender docks. Our walk around the harbor to Cabo Whale Watch was another thing! It was almost al around the harbor and at first we thought we were lost. After a phone call, we found the office and checked in. We made it! Lisa, who is a marine biologist led the group of nine of us in a very adequate 32 foot fiberglas boat with twin outboards. We did a quick tour of the Cabo...

Apr 11, 2017 - Mexico.

After leaving Los Angeles we sail south towards Mexico. The temperature is rising and I'm enjoying the sunshine. The dynamics have changed on the ship with a lot of the Australians having left and more British and Americans boarding. Not least amongst the changes has been that use of the "pokies" (slot machines) has plummeted. It used to be there was hardly ever one standing unattended, now banks of them are standing all alone. The entertainment is good with the comedian Alan Stewart performing. His act is more centred on the Brits and a...

Feb 5, 2017 - Cabo San Luca, Mexico. Anne’s Birthday & Whale Watch

Sunday Feb 5, & Monday Feb 6 2017 Cabo San Luca, Mexico Anne’s Birthday & Whale Watch Anne celebrated her birthday on board. The crew decorated our room with ornaments and a “Happy Birthday” banner, much to our surprise. We were at sea most of the day and the officers presented a Bar-B-Q on the pool deck. Captain Jose served the dessert and the Executive Chef, Monica was at the Webber grill. The ship entered the port late in the afternoon and anchored in the bay. This afforded us the view of a beautiful sunset before dinner. But our...

Nov 10, 2016 - Sailing to Santa Maria Cove

Thursday, November 10th: Sailing and snorkeling Weather: hot and dry Route: Cabo Azul Resort --> Mega Mall via local 'Urbano' bus --> Cabo San Lucas via Intercity bus --> Cabo San Lucas Marina Our private sailing/snorkeling tour was reserved for 13:00.

Even though we were familiar with this ride we were perplexed at the...

May 13, 2015 - Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas is in a gorgeous location at the bottom of the 775 mile Baja Peninsula. It would be easy to argue that the Baja is more part of California than Mexico; it is only attached by a small piece of land on the northern edge. So far it seems less affected by drug cartel terrorism and the port was well guarded by soldiers sporting rifles that were as tall as they were. Cabo does not have a deep water port so we and the Disney Wonder had to tender passengers ashore. Getting off the life boat we were surprised to have our hand bags...

Mar 15, 2015 - Mexico - Cabo San Lucas

I took the Amtrak to San Diego (quite a nice way to travel – lots of legroom and the ability to walk around or go to the lounge car). Then a short flight to Cabo which is quite developed with lots of new development coming soon, and is crowded with a million students because it is spring break. I’ve done a few things here – went on a boat ride to see the famous Arch, went zip-lining, visited the glass blowing factory, learnt how tequila is made, saw whales, and was hounded by many time share salesmen.

Feb 17, 2014 - Cabo San Lucas

We are in Cabo San Lucas. This is as far south as you can go on the Baja Peninsula. To go farther south we would have go by boat and if we went straight south the first land we would come to would be Antarctica, so guess we will just head home next. We had a nice time in Los Barilles. We were not right on the beach but close enough to see the water. It was fun walking down to the beach and watching kite boarders and windsurfers. It makes one want to be at least 30 years younger but, then we would have to be working. Maureen, a friend from...

Feb 4, 2014 - Cabo San Lucas

We arrived in Cabo San Lucas this morning around 7:00 A.M. We had to use the tenders to get ashore this time. Once ashore, we met with out tour group and went on a very nice boat to see the Arch and Lover’s Beach. After the boat tour we went on a bus tour of Cabo San Lucas. After the bus tour we spent time shopping and having lunch at Senor Frog’s. This is a most unusual restaurant, one guy was celebrating his birthday, they gave him all the free beers he could drink. They had a huge hose at the top of the deck on the second floor of the...

Feb 2, 2014 - Super Bowl at Sea

We had a very full and fun day at sea. After we shopped till we dropped in Ensenada, we had the largest super bowl party we have ever attended. They have a huge movie screen on deck 14 where they showed the game. People were in the pool swimming while watching, some were in the Jacuzzi, others were all over the two viewing decks watching in lawn chairs. Jerry and I watched the first half, then the wind picked up and we went inside. They had the best super bowl party we have ever been to. They served chicken wings, BBQ, hot dogs, burgers,...

Nov 26, 2013 - First day in Mexico - sun, fun and exercise!

26 NOV 13 – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Day 5. Today, we visited Mexico for the first time. With a late morning arrival (11:00), we had plenty of time to watch as the Star made her way slowly down the last few kilometres of the Baja California coast and turned into the bay in front of Cabo San Lucas. This port does not have a dock of sufficient size to berth large cruise ships, so we anchored a little way off and were to be tendered ashore in the Star’s own lifeboats. As we had an early private tour booking, we wanted to disembark as early as...

Mar 24, 2013 - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

March 24, 2013 Cabo San Lucas, Mexico We are disappointed that we only have a few hours at this port of call. We arrived at 7 am and sail at about 2 pm. This is a tender port and the last tender back to the ship leaves at 1 pm. We swam with the dolphins today. What a great experience! It was better than I expected. We were in a very large saltwater pool; in groups of 8 people. Each group had a dolphin and trainer. Our dolphin’s name is Aqua, a 26 year old female 550 pounds about 10 feet long. We started out sitting at the edge of the pool...
