We loved our cruise on Norwegian Cruise Line! All of the staff go out of their way to make it so enjoyable, they are all so pleasant & friendly- always smiling! This was only our second cruise, we loved our first on a different cruise line, but NCL took things a step further, the staff was better, the food tasted better & everything overall was more fun. We were happy we booked our shore excursions through instead of the cruise line, because we were in much smaller groups. The shore excursions were great!

The zipline tour was great! Unfortunately it stormed,but we were able to zipline, the team of guys were awsome, they worked so hard with everyone to make sure that everyone had fun!

Our trip w/The Native Choice "the Mayan Experience" will be cherised forever. Our guide Eric took us into his village after visiting the ruins & we ate in a Mayan home. We made our own tortillas & chocolate. Only 10 people on the tour!
