Wonderful Time - First Time Cruisers w/ Tweens

Sail Date: March 27, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

As first time cruisers, we have heard the bad and the good from other cruisers.  It is really what you make of it.  We had a wonderful time, great weather,  great service from staff, excellent food choices, and really professionally run excursions.  Cabin was clean and well kept by staff, any needs were attended to as soon as possible.  The kids really enjoyed the kids club, never wanted to leave it, made lots of friends.  I have to say they had a excellent kids staff.  We will definitely cruise Norwegian again.

Cabin / Stateroom
The only issue about this cabin, is there is a port window or something on 3 (according to staff) that bangs outside during the night when traveling on open water. If you get motion sickness, you feel the motion more on the lower decks at night. Definitely wear a sea band. However, the location was close to elevators and stairs. Easy access to everything. The room was larger than I expected and clean. The four of us each had a bed and we were not at all that cramped. I have been in smaller rooms in Chicago and NY.

Drove and parked, very easy to drop of and pick up luggage.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Gumblina Park Reserve and Tabyana Beach was a great excursion. William was a great guide. Kids loved it.
Belize City, Belize
Altun Ha and Old Belize River was another great excursion, kids enjoyed this one too. Lavern and Linette from Chukka Tours were awesome guides.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Relaxing day - half day on port. Most expensive Mexican food, don't even bother. We have better in Richmond, VA.
Cozumel, Mexico
Dolphin Excursion was fun, but very disorganized from port to facility, spent hour waiting for instruction. Dolphin trainers were very professional though.
