A very good cruise expirience with a lousy check-in process

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Norwegian casual environment is an excellent approach to make the cruise experience cruise trip unforgettable.  The add-on beverage package and specialty restaurants are the perfect complements to create an exceptional cruise trip.  Although we had visited all the ports of call before the Norwegian experience made the trip hard to forget.  However NCL has to improve the check-in process that took more that 1.5 hours to board the ship.  Debarkation is very smooth and well organized.   

Cabin / Stateroom
Orlando Fish from Nicaragua was very helpful and was trying to take care of all our needs. Our balcony was a very good addition to the cruise experience.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Check-in process is the worse we ever had after more than 50 cruises. Embarkation is very good.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
We took a catamaran excursion in Roatan and Cozumel and had a great time
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Specialty dinning is excellent and no waiting lines
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Took a Jolly Roger catamaran trip for a nice snorkeling and a very good time.
Belize City, Belize
Tender is very slow and city has little to offer.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Took a $2 per person taxi to Mahahual and went to the beach with shade and facilities. The beach is average. Prices in the Costa Maya shopping center high.
Cozumel, Mexico
Took a catamaran for snorkeling and a beach island with very nice facilities and excellent local services.


Go for the 3 or 4 specialty dining package and ultimate beverage package
