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

Mazatlan (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. Mazatlan’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.
