NCL Getaway June 2016

Sail Date: June 05, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Onboard entertainment was excellent, the four ports of call were exactly what we were looking for - exotic, safe and beautiful.  We wish we knew about the service charges at the "free" dining spots and the daily room service charge which were unexpected charges. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Room was more spacious than expected, shower was great. It was a long way to walk from the stairs and elevators, but that is why they are the least expensive cabins.

Miami, Florida
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
We rented a vehicle at the port and hired a local guide which turned out to be great. We were happy we hired the guide as he was very good and helped with the crazy driving on the island.
Belize City, Belize
Excusrion to a caye to snorkel was fantastic.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Using a local tour guide service at the port was the way to go. Cost was $20 per person versus $90 per person on many excursion sites.
Cozumel, Mexico
Dolphin experience was phenominal. Pay for the two dolphin swimming experience.


Be aware of the service charges at the so called "free" dining optiions and of the daily room cleaning service charge. These service charges add up quickly when unexpected and on a budget.
