Norwegian Getaway

April 2016 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Western

A Good Cruise......But Not A Great Cruise

Our first time to Roatan.  A very beautiful island with some fun things to do.  Then on to Belize.  Not a very good visit! Had to anchor five miles offshore and tender in to Belize City port.  Belize City is dirty and crime ridden and the excursions take you through parts of it.  Not the best part of our cruise.

Costa Maya was pleasant and Cozumel is always a delight.

Our worst experience was in dealing the ship's cigar smoking policy.  I am a cigar smoker and enjoy smoking a few while on cruise.  The ship has a cigar lounge called the Humidor Lounge and sells cigars from it.  Unfortunately, cigarette smokers are allowed to smoke in the lounge (as well as all the other smoking designated areas) while cigar smoking is forbidden in the cigarette areas.  Many of the ship's staff and most of the officers (junior, mid-level and senior) are rude to the cigar smokers and seem to enforce policy unevenly.

The buffet food is good (I like Carnival's better) but the specialty dining is very good. The entertainment at all levels is very good and mixed drink quality is excellent.
