tour not as described, sat for an hour at underground shuttle garage breathing exhaust waiting for shuttle to take us to village. Shuttle arrives and driver gets out of shuttle and stands next to shuttle for 10 minutes, We get out and take another shuttle back to ship!
Description did not indicate a change of buses. Tour was poorly run with not enough buses at transfer point; driver to the Village had no idea of where our pick up point was located just the name of the restaurant.
Go through the boat, they have a shuttle, very easy to use ($13/adult, $10 per kid). Beach was amazing, rented two chairs and an umbrella for $25, kids rented boogie boards for $10 and had a blast. Nice easy/cheap day.
Needed more time at the beach. We stopped in a downtown shopping area for an hour before heading for the beach. I think that the airboat ride should be followed by time at cocoa beach without the shopping time in between. We really enjoyed the beach. Waves were good that day. Some surfers.
We went to Cocoa beach for the day. We took the NCL provided shuttle to the beach. There are cheaper options out there, but with the limited time in port, did not want to risk getting stranded. We ended up with 3+ hours on the beach. Rental umbrellas and chairs were available. We did some souvenir shopping afterwards.
Took the shuttle to Cocoa Beach and it was a very smooth and quick ride. The beach was very clean, offered chairs and umbrellas for a small fee. Water was beautiful and warm. Sand was full of shells. My family had a great day here!
I did the shopping and beach tour. It was a pain because they made you transfer busses and had up to a half hour wait to get you on the next bus. It caused us to just want to go back on the ship. Take a taxi and save the hassle.
Nice beach. Water to warm, rained after an hour. Would not choose this excursion again. Village tour was terrible. You were looked at as shoplifters and nuisances in the few stores that were even opened.
The instructor seemed to add another surfer to the group that was not part of the lesson group when he had 6 already. The other person did not have the shirt that those in the lesson were required to wear. He seemed to give that person more attention than the people in the actual lesson.
