Didn't like the Non-Optional Service Charges

Sail Date: March 01, 2015

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The cruise was excellent but the Service Charges imposed by NCL are onerous.  Two People $182.00 - come on!  They say its to evenly distribute tips to their employees.  I don't want to be a part of NCL's compensation package. That's none of my business and it's inappropriate to forcibly charge me that money after we have already paid for our tickets.  On future cruises we will automatically add that amount to their advertised cruise price to make a decision on using them.  Henry Fleming

Cozumel, Mexico There was so much sales hawking by local merchants it made us uncomfortable
Belize City, Belize This is a poor country but they have a good attitude and have interesting things to see.
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras Fantastic
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico OK
