TAPS cruise


This is a seven-night trip round-trip cruise from Los Angeles going to Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta aboard the Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas.  

Check out photos from a 2022 TAPS cruise to see what a trip is like. 


The amped Navigator of the Seas® delivers a maxed out adventure in just a few short days. Take on record breaking thrills, like the longest waterslide at sea. Soak up bigger, bolder, splashier pool days. Swap going out for going all out with next level nightlife and new dining for every craving. This is your short vacay, turned way, way up. Only on Royal Caribbean®.


We know that healing is found when surrounded by peers who understand. While on board, TAPS will have a variety of programs and activities available for you based on relationship or loss, and we'll gather as a group each evening for a TAPS family dinner. We'll also have a survivor sanctuary, we liken her to  “THE HELM.” It will serve as our home base where you can always connect with TAPS staff should you need any emotional support.

When we reach each port, you'll be able to explore the destinations. TAPS will also offer organized group shore excursions that will be announced closer to the cruise.



The cruise takes place from Friday, January 20 to Friday, January 27, 2023. 

  • Day 1: We'll set sail from Los Angeles at 4 p.m. and cruise to our first destination.
