The ports took opportunities to really learn more about the cultural and natural aspects of their people and space.  In Belize we did a boat tour with a Naturalist who knew every plant and creature on our trip.  In Cozumel an amazing cultural trip, museum, replicas of temples, chocolate making and the Rain producing ,pole winding ritual performed.  Roatan, The Best of Roatan... great learning experience.

The Getaway has a fun , talented crew, personable, get it done with a smile attitude.  Noisy at times, but plenty of places for quiet conversations.  Excellent food, Check out Cagney's for a really special treat. Garden Cafe, O'Sheehans, Tropicana Room, Savor, La Cucina are all excellent.  Eating outside in Le Bistro is 1 noisy, 2 smoke filled, we passed that by.

Of course, Norwegian is known for it's wonderful shows, and all 3 of the big shows were top notch.

Ship Quality

Someone is always cleaning everywhere you look on the ship. Our 3rd trip on this one and it is still beautiful and spotless.

Cabin / Stateroom

Our steward is so talented! Fun animals every day, spotless bathrooms, freshly plumped pillows and a great personality. Cabin is spacious, bed comfortable, only wish the AC would stay on all night. We like to sleep cool, the comforter is to heavy to sleep cool. A very small thing in a great cabin.

Ship Tip

Making reservations for speciality dining... seems to have to be done the day you arrive on board. ugh. There is so much to do on the ship and trying to coordinate shows that start at 7 30 pm with dinners that do not end in 90 minutes means EARLY hurry up dinners. So, plan well.

Best of Roatan, something worthwhile, lots to learn in a delightful way. We will do this again! Boat trip was an added surprise for us, met lots of wonderful people and our guide was most excellent!
