7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 19, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

Too much pushing to make reservations for "pay" restaurants. The food in the "free" restaurants was great. There was no reason to "pay" for additional meals. The shows were very nice, and we enjoyed them very much. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The ship really pushes "Diamond International" and other jewelry stores at the shore shopping areas.

Took a great tour of the island. The guide was very good was great. We saw a park area with dolphin "rides".
Don't Miss: Had the best margharita of my life!!! Don't know the name of the placee though.

We did not go on an excursions. I would not recommend venturing away from the secured port area alone. We were very uncomfortable and returned to the security area in a very short time.

The Mayan Ruins are a must see. The tour guide was absolutely wonderful!

Pros: Great food!

Cons: Entirely too much selling!
