What can I say. As a native New Yorker, NYC is the greatest city in the world! ... If you are coming in from out of town and do not give yourself an extra couple or, few days to explore this magnificent city, all I have to say is, What is wrong with you!
Oh my goodness! ... How many times can one go to the Bahamas? .. For Nassau once is enough. It seems like every cruise ship in the world makes a stop here one time or, another. There are so many other more beautiful venues. ... But for Eastern Caribbean cruises, it is what it is.
Really? ... Port Canaveral? ... Nothing there! ... And to get pout of the port area, you MUST take a taxi. Cannot walk across the causeway. ... Be prepared to wait and wait to get a taxi because of the massive number of people on this ship. Also, only ONE taxi company is contracted to handle all these thousands of people. ... We took a taxi to Jetty Park. It's the closest to the cruise port. Really NO BIG DEAL. Beach is less than so-so. The water is C O L D! It is the Atlantic Ocean after-all. ... The NASA installation is no big deal (not any longer anyway). And all the Disney stuff NCL tries to sell you (for A LOT of money), is WAY TO FAR. ... You're foolish to waste your money for those excursions.
