7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 08, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 0106
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

We enjoyed this cruise.  As we had done three Western Caribbean cruises before, the only new port was Costa Maya and we enjoyed it most as it had the new experiences.  We selected the itinerary to jive with another week of holidays we were taking in the Tampa area otherwise we likely would not have chosen this particular cruise.  That being said, the crew we encountered were very friendly and earnest in their efforts to make our trip enjoyable. The ship is a bit tired and has a rather underwhelming fitness studio when compared with most others we have had on other lines' ships, although the group exercise room is nice.  The saunas are very small and the changerooms almost postage-stamp sized.

We came early and went to the Strazz Centre for a musical before and enjoyed walking along Riverwalk and dining in the little resaurants on the side streets.

THe schnorkelling excursion was very good; the area of the reef we went to has rebounded from the last time we did this there.
