We chose this itinerary and line because of our prior experience and because of the Panama Canal crossing and an opportunity to see the Mayan Ruins in Mexico.
The ship itself is beautiful and very well maintained, but as a overall "luxury cruise" experience lacked service and reasonable ports.
Most of the ports were very much off the beaten path and had very little to offer, for the most part........until Mexico, we never saw another cruise ship in port.
The service had it high points but overall the crew was not that attentive and often seemed confused.
If we did not get the included "perks" (of which there were many), we would be far less satisfied.......net/net it was OK for what the fee + perks were, but had we paid more our satisfaction would be far less.
I guess what I am saying is that this was not a "luxury" cruise and we have traveled on Oceania, Wind Star and Regent......possibly this has something to do with the NCL takeover?? Not sure.
Cabin was OK but the layout was not optimal.......the closet was directly next to the bed and had access for only one person at a time
Quite expensive given the time and itineraryView All 30 City Tour Reviews
we opted to walk around the town which had little to offer.
The drive through the countryside was awesome and the Hacienda was beautiful.View All 15 Tayutic Hacienda Reviews
It was OK, but set up as a tourist trap.......not worth the money........ monkeys and macaws encounters very structured.View All 191 Gumbalina Park Reviews

Hard to rate a port that we only arrived and boarded!
