Our first cruise and it was fun

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2009
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony

we were looking for something different to do so we looked around and realized that in early december the cruises to the caribbean are a very good value

my wife talked to her aunt who is a very experienced cruiser and she told us about cruise critic

joining cruise critic enhanced our experience and gave us insight into the process even though it was our first time

NCL was ok and it was pleasant

the food wasn't really as good as we expected, but we figured it wasn't a big deal since we didn't pay very much for the cruise

having a suite for our first cruise really made it nice and for sure ruined us as we will only be able to cruise now with a sliding door to the outside

we really wish the ship had a nice piano bar lounge where we could have relaxed in the evening....there really was no bar scene which was a shame

the breakfast and lunch buffets reminded us of the old country buffet as the food was mediocre and many of the customers were fat and barely able to walk

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

mini suite for the price was great

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


it was fun, zip lining and then the beach was nice

Belize City

we should have done an excursion as the city was nasty to walk around

it was a nice beach, all inclusive, very relaxing, the day went by fast and we drank too much
