Review: Cruise West Sea of Cortez

I opted into Cruise West's email newsletter. It keeps me up to date on their specials. One of their current specials is what they call a Stowaway rate, from $2545 per person, on their Sea of Cortez cruise.

They call it the Best of the Sea of Cortez. We took a cruise with CW when they first started sailing into the Sea of Cortez. Actually, I think we did their first season. And the itinerary is bit different now than when we did it.

Even so, this is a GREAT sailing for someone who loves to cruise and wants to try something different. The CW ship holds only 102 guests. Every cabin is "outside." Dressing for dinner means taking a shower and putting on a clean t-shirt. Among the itinerary stops are the small Mexican towns of Loreto and La Paz which we loved.

If you are a water person and enjoy viewing wildlife, this is a great sailing opportunity. Time for swimming and snorkeling and beach combing is actually built into their schedule. If I didn't already have a "To-See For the First Time" list, I wouldn't hesitate to contact my TA, Ellen, and take the trip a second time.
