Traveled with children


Toilets wouldn't work almost the entire week. We didn't know from one hour to the next if it worked or not. We would always first flush to see if it worked and if so go. If not, then we would travel to another part of the ship to use the restroom. If you forgot to flush first, and it didn't work, then we would be on the phone with guest services asking them to manually flush our toilet. This was a daily issue, and from our understanding with our entire floor.

The shower was flooded one day, and we hadn't even used it yet that day.

Port Reviews


Nothing to do here unless you went on an excursion.

Harvest Caye

Beautiful pool, kids water park, and beaches. You could do anything in the port without needing to go on an excursion. Didn't like that it was Norwegian's private island, but you had to pay for everything.

Costa Maya

Plenty to enjoy here, but in order to use the pools you had to pay for food or drinks in order to use the pools.


Overall, this was the best port. Tons to do right in the port, or really cheap to take a ride to one of the three beaches that didn't have a seaweed issue. Or, you could just walk around the area just outside the port. Entire family enjoyed this port the most.
