7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 01, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 13270

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.

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.

Ship Tip

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

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.
