March 2016 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western
This was our first cruise. I've gone back through my paperwork and can't seem to find where I agreed to pay a $13.50 per person per day charge on top of the cruise and all the taxes and fees. For 4 of us on a 7 day cruise, that was a less than pleasant surprise.
We had to tender in Belize, which was a nightmare. We didn't get off the boat until after 10 a.m. and we had already missed our excursion. We were stuck basically shopping and missed seeing the island.
Additionally, we weren't able to dock in Costa Maya. So, we essentially missed half of our trip.
If you've never been on a cruise, be prepared to be nickeled and dimed to death.
