we were supposed to go to Cabo San Lucas and Alcapulco, Mexico but because of the swine flu the United States government didn't want us going into the Mexican ports. So they scrambled and added San Diego to our ports of call and lined up off shore excursions for us. We had lived in San Diego 30 years ago so we just went out on our own and went to Sea World. It probably would have been cheaper to go with the off shore excursion by the time we paid for a taxi to take us there. We had a great time and we were impressed that NCL scrambled and in a matter of hours of when we found out we could not enter the Mexican ports. I was only disappointed because we had planned to swim with the dolphins excursion in Mexico, but we would rather have skipped it than risk getting the flu. I was suprised I didn't hear anyone complaining about not being able to go to Mexio. But San Diego was a great alternative, its a beautiful city. The staff were very upbeat also about letting everyone know that better to be safe than sorry as far as not going into Mexico.
