This port is a refueling port.Cannot understand why NCL would selct this port. It a very poor area. No redeeming qualities. It should be ELIMINATED
Don't Miss: Absolutrly nothing

Gun Hall signal Station and other historical sites

Pros: Cruise Director, Matt Baker was the best I've seen in 13 cruises. Shore tours in Tortola, Bridgetown and St Kitts were loaded with history, especially the British rule as far back as the 1600s. Reception desk people were very helpful in answering questions. Bording the ship was easy as was leaving .

Cons: No problems, cruise met my expectations. Samana was disappointing and the poverty was obvious. Port should be eliminated. Knew this priot to the cruise

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
