port of tampa was Chaos. not enough info from NCL on where to go, so we spent time in 3 different lines before we got to where we SHOULD have been. Then the cards didnt work and we had to wait another 1/2 hour while they straightened that out... That being said, once we got on board, the experience was wonderful... Room, Dining, etc were all great. Not to pleased with the Costa Maya port, nice to look at, but too many hard sellers trying to pull us into their stores... Finally just abandoned any effort to shop and fled back to the ship. We dined at Moderno (we all loved it), Tepenyaki(FUN) and Le Bistro. The food was top notch in all places and service was amazing. This was our first time in a suite on a cruise and if we could afford it, we would go that way all the time. Never been so pampered.

Rocky Start but just kept getting better
