Looking for someone else to go on a mature and jungle adventure. Looks cool but we’re the only ship on Harvest Cay on 2/28. They need one more person to make the trip happen. If interested please let me know. If not, I’ll book another excursion.

Here’s the description (it’s $65)

Monkey River Wildlife Adventure

Ride on a covered panga boat along the coast until you reach the river entrance. All along the way you will enjoy fantastic views, sightings of tropical birds, iguanas and more. Then take a jungle walk with your local Harvest Caye excursion guide and learn about local Belize medicinal plants. A true wildlife eco-excursion!

This local jungle wildlife viewing adventure excursion begins when you meet with your Monkey River guide just next to your Belize mainland tender pier for cruise ships arriving to Harvest Caye cruise port of call. You will take one of the small shuttle boats from Harvest Caye Island ashore to the mainland at Placencia just a short 10-15 minute ride. You will meet your shore excursion guide just outside your Placencia tender pier. It is just a 5-minute walk to where you will climb aboard your shore excursion boat - a covered but open skiff type boat called a panga. Then you’re off for a 40-minute ride along the beautiful coastline with tropical plants on one side and crystal clear turquoise waters on the other. Your cruise excursion captain will point out interesting spots along the way as you hug the Belize shoreline.

When you come to the river entrance your Harvest Caye Wildlife Viewing Excursion guide will begin to point out various local birds such toucans and herons. The river gets its name from the rather loud howler monkeys make the trees overhead their personal speedway. Listen for the hoots and calls that are often heard before the monkeys are spotted. Iguanas, crabs, as well as other wildlife might be scene. This river ride through the mangrove will take about 10 minutes.

Then, at a slow pace, it’s time to take a hike through the jungle and meet with a local Monkey River guide who will point out herbal plants used for medicines. The guide will give you a real local Belize jungle education. You might keep an eye out for a tapir, or a deer. The hiking part of the excursion takes about an hour and covers half a mile (1 km) out and back.

After the hike, the panga will start back to your mainland Belize cruise tender pier for Harvest Caye port of call. There will be a short stop so see the manatees in their natural feeding habitat. Marvel at the agility of these ungainly looking creatures.

It will then be time to head back to the Placencia dock for the short shuttle boat ride back over to Harvest Caye Island and your cruise ship.

I haven't heard anything yet but I put in a low bid so have low expectations lol

Anyone hear anything on their Upgrade bids yet? Messed up and went cheap when we booked initially so now hoping we can sneak in through the bidding process. Looks like there's still some decent availability across the ship so I have my fingers crossed! Taking my husband for his first cruise and our honeymoon, super excited!

I dont know either but if you have wrinkled clothes you can also turn the shower on hot and hang the clothes in the bathroom and let the steam take the wrinkles out 🤷‍♀️

Not sure?

Will there be an iron or laundry room with available on ship?

Any cruise port takes us currency so you will be fine

Thank you.

I'm going solo too but have already booked my excursions.

eileeshb

Feb 12, 2018 - 9:02 am

From what I can figure out all the ports on this itinerary should accept US dollars though you may get change in the local currency. My excursion provider in Roatan sent a lengthy explanation of why they won't take travellers cheques and prefer cash.

Kgarsick

Feb 11, 2018 - 6:41 pm

If you’re bringing cash you have to exchange it right? I’ve only ever cruised to the Bahamas.

LegoChef

Feb 09, 2018 - 11:54 am

I asked ncl that. The vendors there are not ncl but contracted so no free drinks. Sounds like maybe a shared island?

LegoChef

Any other solo travelers looking to do excursions? Wouldn’t mind finding an excursion buddy.

sandybehymer

My understanding is it does not and everything is pricey.

Kgarsick

Feb 06, 2018 - 12:35 pm

Does anyone know if the drink package includes Harvest Caye? I know it does at Great Stirrup cay.

Does anyone have any experience with roatanx dune buggy and power snorkeling? We are considering doing this excursion in roatan and there isn't much for reviews.

Hey everyone! I’m booked with my son, who will turn 7 right before we cruise! What are some of the best excursions for an active kiddo? I’m hoping to dive, probably in Roatan.

eileeshb

Dec 01, 2017 - 10:50 am

Hi all,
Im hoping to do a tour in roatan with bodden tours, but as i'm travelling solo i'm dependent on at least 3 others booking the same tour. If anyone else is interested i was quoted $30 for the fun-n-sun tour.
