Day 3

Los Angeles and Embarkation

Wake up on your last day in Los Angeles before you depart on your dream cruise aboard the brand new Norwegian Bliss. Enjoy the morning at your leisure soaking in the LA sun. In the afternoon, you will board your floating resort for the week. With multiple entertainment experiences available, extraordinary dining options, and top of the line amenities, you will enjoy exploring this state-of-the-art ship as you embark on your Mexican Riviera journey.

Day 4 & 5

At Sea

Begin your relaxing cruise with two days at sea and ample time to settle into your floating resort and experience everything the Norwegian Bliss has to offer. Visit the Observation Lounge with unparalleled 180 degree views of ocean and horizon. Enjoy one of the multiple dining options on board, included in our tour price, take in a show or try your luck in the casino. This is the perfect time to unwind as you cruise down the west coast.

Day 6

Puerto Vallarta (9:00 AM–6:00 PM)

Puerto Vallarta is the quintessential Mexican resort overflowing with the charm of Old Mexico. Narrow cobblestone streets, lined with shops and galleries, provide perfectly shaded patios where you may sample Carne Asada as a mariachi band plays. You can bargain with local merchants for one-of-a-kind souvenirs, or wander the 25 miles of golden beaches that stretch along Banderas Bay.

Day 7

Mazatlán (8:00 AM–5:00 PM)

Combine a first-class beach resort with a city that has an illustrious, colonial past and you have Mazatlán. Founded in 1531, the city was developed into a thriving commercial seaport by German immigrants who arrived mid-19th century. Mazatlán’s fortune came from importing equipment for the nearby gold and silver mines. The German settlers also influenced the local music “banda,” an alteration of Bavarian folk music, as well as the beer culture, by founding the local and now world famous Pacifico brewery.

Day 8

Cabo San Lucas (7:00 AM–3:00 PM)

Cabo’s signature landmark is El Arco (“The Arch”), a rock formation at the tip of “Land’s End.” The jewel of the Baja Peninsula is famous for its world-class sport fishing, as well as its high-end resorts and exclusive gated communities that line an area simply called “the Corridor.” Once sought by pirates for its safe harbors, the Los Cabos region of the Southern Baja Peninsula is now home to the bustling towns of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. Snorkeling gear, boats, wave runners, kayaks, paddle boats and windsurfing boards are available for the active vacationer.

Day 9

At Sea

One last full day at sea to relax before it’s time to say goodbye to your cruise ship. Spend some time enjoying the entertainment and activity options that the Bliss has to offer. Try out the spa or the exciting go cart track!

Day 10

Disembarkation and Los Angeles Sightseeing

It's time to say goodbye to the sea and say hello to California. After disembarkation in Los Angeles enjoy a LA city tour concluding in Santa Monica, the end point of Route 66, renowned for its iconic pier and Ferris Wheel. Enjoy the boardwalk and beach views to top off your Los Angeles sightseeing.

Hampton Inn El Segundo or similar

Day 11

Say goodbye to California as you venture back home. If you have booked your airfare through YMT Vacations, your transfer to the airport is included in our services.

Please note that this is a proposed itinerary; the actual itinerary may vary due to season, special events, or weather. Because our tour arrangements are often made a year or more in advance, YMT Vacations reserves the right to alter the itinerary. Itinerary changes are made to improve your vacation experience, as well as respond to any unforeseen circumstances that mandate alterations. By their nature, all tours vacations involve a certain level of physical activity. While YMT tours have been designed with our guests in mind and are not physically demanding, this tour does include walking and periods of standing during the sightseeing visits. You will also encounter steps and some uneven ground along the way, particularly at older, historical sights.
