An all-inclusive Mexico vacation is one of the top trips that pop into people’s minds when they think of sand, sun, and utter relaxation. And no wonder – an all-inclusive vacation to Mexico includes accommodations, unlimited drinks, unlimited food, activities, and beach time all in one convenient vacation package.
Resorts tend to be the go-to option for an all-inclusive getaway in Mexico, but people somtimes find the food at these resorts lacking in gourmet quality and you often have to wear a pesky armband (no one wants a tan line from that). The solution to this for those who want a high-end feel to their Mexico trip while still reaping the benefits of an all-inclusive vacation is simple, but often overlooked: a cruise!
A cruise includes all of the aspects that make all-inclusive vacations so popular, and then some. Here are some of the top reasons why you should consider it for your next all-inclusive Mexico trip.
The cuisine on a Mexico cruise with Celebrity Cruises includes some of the best dining at sea. Each night you can dine in the Main Dining Room on multi-course meals that are created by highly trained chefs led by world-renowned chef, Daniel Boulud. The ingredients used are fresh and locally sourced when possible with exquisite presentation.
You’ll find this quality and attention to detail extends to the specialty restaurants, where you can dine for an extra charge. These restaurants go above and beyond the typical vacation dining experience to offer new ambiances and technology to go with your delicious meal plus dishes that will rival some found at the best restaurants on land. Another plus of the specialty restaurants is that you don’t have to leave a large resort to get to them and figure out taxi or other transportation to try a new dining experience. Simply walk to it from your stateroom and back – or make a fun detour to the Martini Bar or other lounge on board.
Even the buffets on our ships have incredible and delicious options that move well beyond typical buffet staples of fried chicken, pasta, pizza, and burgers. You’ll be amazed by the choices and the quality of the ingredients.
As for activities, you’ll find that many are included in your cruise fare.
But, you may be thinking – what about drinks? Ah, yes, the unlimited drinks that make all-inclusive Mexico vacations so popular. If you’re familiar with cruising you might know that drinks aren’t usually included in your fare beyond coffee and select juices.
Now, you may have noticed we said drinks are not usually included in your cruise fare earlier in this section. That is because for our Suite Class guests, they are included. Suite Class guests get four perks when they book a cruise with us and one of those perks is a Premium Beverage Package, which includes high-end wine, liquor, and craft beer.
Besides the Premium Beverage Package, there are three other perks that Suite Class guests get that turn your cruise into a truly all-inclusive experience. That’s because those other perks are Unlimited Wi-Fi Package, prepaid gratuities, and onboard credit to spend on the ship during your cruise (think spa treatments, shore excursions, specialty restaurants, and many other fun activities and experiences).
Not staying in a suite? No problem! You can still turn your cruise into an all-inclusive one where drinks are concerned by simply purchasing the Classic Beverage Package or Premium Beverage Package before you depart. Then you can simply enjoy your poolside cocktail without worrying about dollars adding up quickly because you already figured it into your budget ahead of time by getting the drink package.
You’ll get to stay in comfortable accommodations during you cruise. Making this even more blissful is the fact that you can rest assured your balcony room will have a panoramic oceanview if that’s important to you since you’ll be able to pick the exact room you want at booking, unlike at a hotel. Then you don’t have to wait until you check-in and cross your fingers that you get a decent room in a good location. You’ll already know exactly where your room is.
An all-inclusive Mexico cruise can occur on either coastline of the country: the western Mexican Riviera and Baja California peninsula or the eastern Riviera Maya.
Our cruises that sail along the west coast of Mexico visit Cabo San Lucas, Ensenada, Puerto Vallarta, and Huatulco, though which ports you’ll visit depend on your itinerary. We visit west coast Mexican cruise ports on Panama Canal cruises, South America cruises, and Hawaii cruise itineraries.
When it comes to the east coast, visions of all-inclusive Mexico spring breaks in Cancun or Playa del Carmen probably fill your head. We offer a classier itinerary through our Caribbean cruises, with ports of call in Costa Maya and on the Mexican island of Cozumel. While in port, you can enjoy excursions to the Mayan ruins in Tulum and to other gorgeous sights along the Yucatan Peninsula, or do some coral reef snorkeling or sail into the sunset on a Champagne catamaran cruise.
