April 2014

Dear Dave,

Anchors away!! We're leaving on our cruise this weekend and I can't wait!! I'm soooo ready. WooHoo!!


Norwegian Star


We're heading to LA on Sunday and we'll be boarding our ship (Norwegian Star) that afternoon. Apparently internet is ridiculously expensive on the ship so for the next week I won't be very accessible, which is probably a good thing.... I'm looking forward to unplugging and relaxing a bit.


We are doing a 7-night Mexican Riviera cruise so we will be visiting our hotels in all 3 destinations..
bulletCabo San Lucas: Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos
bulletMazatlan: El Cid Resorts
bulletPuerto Vallarta: Hilton and Krystal
Once we get back we'll send out a special email with updates on the properties.


In the meantime have a great month and chat with you soon.

The Krystal Ixtapa property is located in one of the best beaches in Ixtapa's hotel district. The pool area is the perfect place to relax with a good book. Guests can take a bike ride through the local nature reserve where they can watch the iguanas sunning themselves on the pavement. They can also have fun playing a game of golf across the street.
