cruisinjoan's Tips

Miami, Florida - Don't take the Everglades tour if rain is predicted. It will not get cancelled and you will be miserable.
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - Be ready for KIDS! There seemed to be more children than adults on this cruise and 99% were undisciplined with no control exercised. Nothing being said by ship personnel either.
Dakar, Senegal - Unable to stop for pictures at a lot of the places, but tour guide was good and took us to a sand painting craft market.
Porto Grande, Cape Verde Islands - On a so-so excursion here, tour guide was not good. We decided to go back to explore the city. Got off the shuttle and immediately felt uncomfortable when approached and asked when our ship left. Neither the shuttle driver or his assistant came to our aid.
Sao Tome, Sao Tome And Principe - Got to see how the African women do their wash - in a creek. We are so lucky in America. Experienced a cocoa plant. Not something you might want to see then eat or drink cocoa. Went to a former plantation for lunch, had great food and entertainment and were able to roam the grounds.
Takoradi, Ghana - Little dicey at the fishing village where we stopped. Swarmed by children asking for money. Good entertainment where we stopped for lunch at the African Beach hotel. Went out on the shuttle again - scary place to be roaming around.
Lome, Togo - Opposite school experience here. Children very undisciplined and allowed to roam free. Went to village and the poverty was devastating, but the tribal chief had on gold threaded robes.
Abidjan, (Ivory Coast) Cote D'Ivoire - 8 hour excursion with armed guards and an ambulance escort. This was the first time the ship had stopped here. City infrastructure has to change before they come back. We would go down a road and take out the electric wires as the bus was too tall.
Banjul, Gambia - Great excursion here. Went to a school where the kids were the best. Also toured a typical family compound.
Seven Seas Navigator Seven Seas Navigator - The all-inclusive feature was wonderful and I would definitely do it again. Regent also offered a land package that was included in the price. You could either have a 3 day stay in Lisbon before the cruise, or a 3 day safari at the end of the cruise. We did the safari. It was breakthaking!
Nawiliwili, Kauai - Jumped ship here instead of returning to Honolulu. Spent an extra 4 days here.
Pride of America Pride of America - Don't use the Cadillac Diner. Don't eat in the french restaurant if you don't read french and have to ask questions. Don't assume you are getting your room upgraded if you see prices drop after already booking. Try to get Elise for your cabin stewardess. She was an absolute bright spot.
