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 Did not visit port

There was so much sales hawking by local merchants it made us uncomfortable

This is a poor country but they have a good attitude and have interesting things to see.
