Enjoyed the botanic garden. Found the time at Las Terranas to be a waste.


A very poor country. Very sad to see. Nothing at the port. Children begging.


The survey sent to me was incorrect. We took the Western Caribbean itinerary and will comment on those ports. Costa Maya - third visit to this port. Nothing with nothing. Typical tourist spot


I was furious on this shore excursion, though it should have been delightful as the place is downright gorgeous. I was furious, however, because we were told we were not allowed to take any food with us, the ship could not prepare boxed lunches for us, that there would be a buffet (for a fee) available for cruise passengers once we got to the beach (after a cruising the caves and mangroves). It was about a six hour outing, starting around 10:00. When we got to the island (around 2:30 or 3:00) - we were hungry and thirsty!!! However the buffet area was shut down - the islanders said it was "closed" that day, and there was no NCL representative anywhere. We had several hungry children (and adults!), but no food or bottled water available. It ruined what would have been an incredible day had we been fed and watered!


We chose to go to the private beach and it was packed, way too many people and then it poured and everyone wanted to get back on the tenders at the same early at the open air market...great Island art!
