November 2018 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway
Sail Date: November 11, 2018
Been here too...nothing special. Ive seen jungle. They paid me once upon a time to wander aound in it. Get of the beaten path and it becomes a 3rd world country.
Been here before too. Just a great way for NCL to separate you from your money. Read the fine print if you wander off the ship. Its THEIR port, they built almost everything in it, but your key card is next to useless.
Tender port. fortunately they use local tenders, way bigger than the old lifeboats they used to use. We got off just to stretch, back in an hour.
I think I could live here in another life.
Emarnked and disembarked here. Old, raggedy, too small. Parking at the pier is inconvenient, and you have to walk thru traffic and across RR tracks to get to the terminal. We stay downtownwith "park n cruise rates" at the HI, and cab over.
The usual junque shops and hawkers. Been here at least a dozen times, didnt get off the ship. Amazing how pleasant the ship is on port days when you stay onboard.
Do your homeowrk online. Theres so much to do on board that even if you use a TA (we don"t) if enhances the experience if you know whats available.
Make all your dinner, theatre, excursion reservation in advance, from home. Some dinner packages require additional reservations be made on board. We immediately headed to guest services to do that. or magically, the times you want may not be available.
Didn't think much of it right after it opened. We back again this trip just to stretch. Yes they've improved it. All kinds of new expanded ways to separate you from your $$..Came back after an hour or so. And we weren't hardly alone.
