The ship docked along the street in Puerto Vallarta on Thursday at 8 a.m. The cruise line offered plenty of excursions to fill the two days in port; from city highlights, to swimming with dolphins, or horseback riding. Our Jazzdagen group planned an excursion of its own.
A bus provided transportation for our group to lunch in a restaurant known to be safe, the Rivercafe. The group spent midday in the casual
