7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 29, 2006
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Inside
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The itenerary is excellent with lots to do sandwiched between two days to rest. The dining experience could have been better; I have had better food on cruises before. The service varied between excellent and mediocre, possibly because Norwegian has a built-in service charge at the end of the cruise, which, if you disagree with, you have to wait a long time in line to dispute (so most don't). Other than a "light choice" restaurant, there were only two restaurants other than the buffet which were available without paying a pretty hefty surcharge, and the menus were the same at each of them.

We took a local tour guide to see the ruins, It was nice. Again, no need to book with the cruise line, plenty of folks lined up to book you an excursion on shore.

lots of shops, quite commercialized. Vendors inside the tourist mall have actually better prices than those outside the mall. We snorkelled here and had a blast
Don't Miss: Snorkelling

Lots to do here, Altun Ha is quite nice. Book tour with local agents to save $.
Don't Miss: Lots of people said the snorkelling was great, we spent our time on the pyramids

Book your excursion with the local tour agents (with whom you can negotiate a good price; ask to get the children in free) don't book anything with Norwegian here or you will literally pay 4X the local price.
Don't Miss: Don't miss the snorkelling here
