October 31, 2023 – Anchored – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – very warm – high 80s – Sunny

Happy Halloween

No tender tickets needed for today.

After another nice breakfast (today including really tasty oatmeal), we went down to the lobby to get in line for the tenders.  The water was a bit rocky near the pontoon so it was a bit of a challenge to hop onto the boat.  Another short ride and we were in the Marina and the tender port.  Today, the marina was saturated with boats - things seem to be getting back to pre-hurricane levels.


It was pretty warm today (hotter than last week) so we scurried quickly to the Beauty Spa for a session with Jenny and Erika.  Not only were they there, but they actually remembered us; the sessions were once again very relaxing and lasted the full hour. 

Ellen had a great idea to exchange some dollars with the girls for pesos.  $3 got us 47 pesos (a bit less than the on line rate but no one will use that rate).  Because it was shot (and no shade) we didn't spend a lot of time strolling the streets of Cabo.  I did get a nice picture of Ellen outside of the Tequila Store.

I don't know if it was because of Halloween or something to do with Dios Los Muertos but one of the stores had a "grim reaper" prop set up - couldn't resist taking a picture.

We stopped off at a small Mercado before heading back to the ship and bought some large water bottles for 10 pesos each or 57 cents (last week, we paid between $1.50 and $2.00 for water.  What a deal.

It was clearly too warm to hang around Cabo and since it was around noon, there was no shade to be had.  We semi-sprinted to the tenders and soon we were back on the air conditioned Eclipse.  The water was still choppy so it took a bit of high jump to get from the tender to the pontoon surface. 

We had lunch in the Café (pizza and salad).  The ship had some Halloween decorations up such as creepy desserts on the buffet. 

We spent the rest of the day on the open deck which had a nice breeze. The ships that were here yesterday, the HAL Koningsdam and perhaps the Discovery Princess (too far away to make out the name) were still here (also doing the overnight stay).

The main stairway is decorated with pumpkins

and there are a lot of people in costumes around the ship – we did pass on the Halloween Party on the pool deck. 

We also passed on “Rock City” and once again, were in those comfy seats on the open deck for the sail away and into the evening. 

There also some other strange noises in the room – besides the whirring noise, there is something that sounds like a phone ringing.  It’s a haunted room and not just on Halloween.
