Duron Family Cruise

We had an awesome opportunity to go on a family cruise. Sam's parents are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, so we decided to make a big vacation out of it. All of Sam's siblings (except for Melanie - she's in Bangkok) and their spouses were able to go. Ray & Jacque also brought their 2 kids along.

Here is Mom & Papa just relaxing on the deck.

Here we are just leaving the Port of San Diego.

Betsy's husband Tim just won 2nd place for the hairy chest competition. It was hilarious and kinda yucky too! (way too many hairy men!!! haha)

Formal night. Mom and Papa (Manny & Patsy)

Manuel & Michelle

Hyrum & Alicia

Ray & Jacque and the kids, Haley & Ryan

Betsy & Tim


We were up on the deck at the perfect time coming into Cabo San Lucas.

This is a picture of our ship the Elation from the beach in Cabo. The water was awesome!

Hyrum and Alicia were also celebrating their 9th anniversary.

This was up on the top deck. I believe it was some kind of antenna that rotated. I took the picture at just the right time.

Sam in Ensenada. That Mexican flag is so huge!

Papa bought 2 guitars - he was a happy boy!

Happy 40th Anniversary!! We love you!!

In Ensenada the boys all bought shirts - except for Manuel (he said he wouldn't wear it again so he didn't get one) Hyrum, Sam, Manuel, Tim & Ray

Here is Haley just before we got off the ship. She went and got 2 ice cream cones. She was a happy girl! We had ice cream whenever we wanted. It was funny, they joked around on the ship that you have never seen so many adults walking around with ice cream cones in your life and I think that's true!

You guys are so lucky to cruise without kids! We took Jenna on a short 3 day cruise in May and it was fun, but LOTS of work. I think we took the same Mexican Rivera cruise for our honeymoon- it was so beautiful!

Family cruises are so much fun! We did one a couple of years ago and we want to go again! Looks like a great time (especially without the kids)!

It was fun to find your pictures - you don't know me but Hyrum was a missionary in my ward (we called him Eldo Hi Hi) and we met Alicia at the Hill Cumorah Pageant. I have wondered how they were doing - we loved having him here. Could you tell him that Sally Pruett says hi? My email is
