This is the third year in a row on NCL. The smaller ships and freestyle dining out of the Port of Tampa has us hooked. Our teenage son loves the teen club, activities and the friends that he makes. The counselors seem very engaging. There was an abundance of musical entertainment. I would have liked to see longer sets. It seemed just when we got hooked on a band and enjoying ourselves they quit!

Love Belize. Not the tendering. We stayed on the ship this year because we have spent lots of time there on previous trips.

Port shopping is awful and terribly expensive. The ruin of Cacchoben were wonderful.

We just like to go into the city shopping, eating and drinking.
