Notes Newscopy: "S.S. Acapulco - A proud dowager. The S.S. Acapulco is like a middle aged woman. She is getting older but refuses to be put on the shelf and lives up to every word of her philosophy - "there's life in the old girl yet!" Like the dowager pouring money into operations, face liftings, and all manner of pills, potions and emulsions to keep her alive and lovely, almost a million dollars has been spent on the Acapulco to make her a modern cruise ship hell-bent on giving everyone a good time. For 13 days, beginning and ending at Los Angeles Harbor, the Acapulco wafts you down the Pacific coast on a fun cruise (sometimes spiced with adventure as I shall explain later) broken by 3 1/2 days in Mexico - spent either at Acapulco or on a deluxe tour of Taxco, Cuernavaca and Mexico City.
