7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 25, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group

This was our first cruise ever. Not being sure what to expect, we really enjoyed the entire experience. From  first check in to final debarkation, the process was relatively easy. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly, the food was great, comfortable mid ship balcony room, and good shows. The only thing we found that was not very much fun was the lifeboat drill. It's hard to imagine getting 150 people inside one of those! We have enjoyed cruising on NCL and have put down a deposit for another cruise!

Nice view from our balcony arriving in port, beautiful sunrises and sunsets as well.

Ship Tip

Go outside the port area in Costa Maya for cheaper cab rates, always agree to the price in advance!

Use the Parking Doctors for parking, reasonable rates, door to door service. Just call when you clear customs and meet them at the numbered poles out front.

Went to Little French Key on a snorkeling excursion, booked direct through their website. 2 drinks and a meal included. Check out their zoo.

Shopping in the port is nice, look for the food carts to save some money, try the fried plantains.

Tropicante Restaurant will hold a table for you on the beach for 2 hours after your ship docks. Look them up and email the owner, Steve Uhl.
