Norwegian Jade

March 2016 - Norwegian Jade to Caribbean - Western

Norwegian Jade - 7 Night Western Caribbean cruise

Over all the trip away from home was good--since I was able to escape reality for at least a week.  I was quite disappointed with the food/quality/temperature/options on the cruise.  The room and it's cleanliness wasn't over the top.  Cozumel was good, Belize was not good, and Honduras was great!

jessicaz1269's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - Cozumel was good - I did an excursion with a local company (wish I could remember their name) and that was confusing. I signed up for a glass bottom boat ride and got that (sort of) and a snorkel (which was great!)--it's just that I didn't know that I was getting the 2 for the price of one which in turn made me not prepared to snorkel. I ended up going snorkeling in my clothes since the communication was very poor and I didn't know I should be in my swim suit since I did initially and only sign up for the glass bottom boat.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras - Roatan, Honduras was the most amazing. I did an excursion with the ship this time and even though I would have preferred not to pay that much for it, it was the best excursion of the trip. I am not sure if it was just because the land there was just so beautiful or that I could depend on the reliability of the locals or what. I went to a beach where we snorkeled and had a BBQ meal and beach swimming. Only one thing, I wish that there was more time to spend there. Because of the number of people who attended there was instruction in groups and that took longer but overall it was amazing there. The BBQ was also very awesome and the locals there were great. Very friendly and not pushy. This was the Tabyana Beach Party & Snorkel. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the beach and snorkeling and good food.
Belize City, Belize - Belize City, Belize was not so great. I was not impressed by that place at all. I recommend staying on the main drag where lots of people are only because going other places was scary...very poor place. This was sad to me. The locals were very pushy and confusing and scary at times. I did yet another excursion with a local group. I do not know the name but it was very confusing...I paid to go to a beach called Cucumber Beach and this was super disappointing. The local group told me a few different prices and in talking with others on the excursion the prices differed. I kept asking (the excursion company) and trying to make sure that out of the group in the excursion van that I was going to get dropped off at the "beach" before the others (since I was essentially traveling on the land solo). It made me nervous to not get straight answers or answers at all or just lies. I felt very uneasy about it but in the end it worked out. The "beach" however was VERY disappointing. It was a manmade "beach". I call it a "beach hole". It was a large circular area with sand and a slide and water tubes and that was about it. There was a small bar there next to the beach hole and a stage for music and a sand volleyball area. Utter disappointment.
Houston, Texas - Driving through the large cities of Dallas and Houston on the way to the port was disastrous. This may partly be because I come from a way smaller town/city and am not used to that kind of chaos. The speed limits were faster than I was used to and there were more lanes then I'm used to also. The drivers seemed rude and really in a huge hurry.
