This is our first time to be on NCL and me and my wife have mixed feelings about this cruising experience.We both decided to list pros and cons on this last trip

Pros- we love the different mix of people in this ship,very diverse and we talked more to a lot of people. The staff were very friendly and eager to please the passengers. The freestyle is a plus although the crew seems so stressed all the time because it looks like the night would never end.

Cons- when it comes to docking the passengers were left on their own. There were no crew members to direct where the passengers need to go except "to the 4th floor" and once we were there it was a mob of people who was as confused as we were.I mentioned this to the crew when they were scanning our ID's that nobody was minding the mob upstairs and they just shrugged their shoulders.So I told them that Carnival does an excellent job of directing people.You would think that they would listen to the passengers but it was the same scenario every time we docked.The food was so so but the special restaurants were very good but so as the other ships that we have been

Maya Jade provided a free ride to their shop-excellent shop if you like the real jadeite jewelry and reasonable prices
Belize City, Belize
It has improved a lot since our last visit,don't forget to visit the chocolate factory,it's a small one but the products were excellent
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Beware of the sellers at the port who demands a TIP right after you agree on the price of the item that you are buying
Cozumel, Mexico
Shopping at the edge of the town for silver was cheaper than the ones closer to the port.We got an excellent deal at this place called Silverado and the sellers were not aggressive as the other ones.
