5 Night Cruise to Mexico
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
We had no problem finding a chair on one of the decks during the sea days, which was important to me. This ship takes you to Mexico with beautiful Caribbean weather. What else could you ask More for? The first port, Progreso was so-so. It is definitely a rundown little Mexican town. We made the most of it and walked to the beach and lay on some nice beach chairs which were owned by a restaurant and drank their margaritas. At the end of the day we rented a wave-runner from some guy for 20 minutes just to try it out. Cozumel was amazing. The water was turquoise and beautiful. We snorkeled and had perfect weather. The restaurant Fat Tuesdays was a bit of a rip off and I don’t recommend eating there.
The food on the ship was good. The buffet food was decent and we really liked the sandwich place that was open for most of the day. The food was not amazing but like I said earlier, you can’t expect to eat like a king when you are paying less than 50$ a night. I recommend this ship to younger couples looking to get away. We had an amazing and romantic cruise and every day since we have gotten back my boyfriend has told me he wishes we were still on the cruise. My advice to you is to be laid back, enjoy your vacation, don’t look for tiny faults that might make you dislike the ship, and have a couple drinks. You can’t go wrong with a ship that takes you to Mexico. We are already saving for our next cruise on Carnival. Less
Awesome week on the Norwegian ...
Crowded and noisy!
Very nice 5 day cruise
