Panama Canal Transit – Puerto Vallarta

Our next Port of Call was Puerto Vallarta, there was only one tour that interested me and, unfortunately, it was over subscribed so I ended up going ashore and wandering around the port area, even grabbed a hair cut and utilised the free WiFi at Starbucks, whilst I am not a fan of Starbucks Coffee, had an iced tea, they do have reliable WiFi 🙂

Puerto Vallarta is a picturesque place, really enjoyed our sail away. Had a bit of fun with my fish-eye lens.

Lunch was on the Pool Deck where the band played as we sailed away.

Added this photo to the post as the discussion about kids wearing diapers in the pool on Cruise Critic has been very vocal.

That night I went to dinner with some new friends, Kathi and Don, in Prime 7. Kathi and Don have been the couple responsible for “making” me go on more cruises, including my South American cruise in 2014 and my upcoming South Pacific cruise. I was very lucky during the cruise to dine in Prime 7 on multiple occasions, the only issue is that they kept trying to give me a larger steak each time, this time a 32 ounce T-Bone, also never had a bad meal in Prime 7 on this trip.19811982

Caesar Salad Prime 7 Style
36 ounce steak!
Budha our waiter for the night. He is from Nepal
2006 Amarone della Valpolicella with the traditional end to a Prime 7 Dinner, chocolate and cherry bites (not sure what else to call them)

The magnum of 2006  Amarone della Valpolicella we purchased on board for a fairly reasonable price a great wine to pair with a steak.
