If you travel in cabin, rate would be "Excelent", if not, is the worst, specially because of the kind of people who travel in the main passengers room

We traveled from Topolobampo to La Paz and had an overall excellent experience! Even food they provided was very tasty. Cabins are strongly recommended: clean, relatively silent, with shower! We slept like babies! Live music and entertainment were also very pleasant.

This is a thing everyone should do once! I sailed from La Paz to Mazatlan. Beautiful crossing. Peaceful cruising with very clean room. The dolphins were very cute as well. We sailed and arrived on time, loading and off loading was easy and well organized.

Actual ferry trip was smooth sailing. information flows within ferry operator are deficient. We had wanted-we and several others-to take ferry to Mazatlan as per their website. Ferry was cancelled until further notice but not so indicated on website.
