This was a scary experience for us, see these young climb up the cliff and then time their jumps into the shallow water

First time in Acapulco. We were harassed the moment we came out of the port by vendors that wanted us to take their taxi tours. One man told us he was a government tourist guide and only wanted to help but as he followed us for two blocks it was apparent he wanted to sell us a 2 hour taxi ride to John Wayne's former home, etc. He walked off when it was apparent to him we weren't buying. I've read Acapulco has worked to improve their crime and drug reputation and we didn't feel unsafe on our brief walk along the waterfront but trash was everywhere and we soon turned back. This city didn't compare favourably with Mazatlan or Cabo San Lucas. Read Less

Cancelled and did out own things. Had a fun walk around the city, saw the cliff divers. It was nice to get out and walk instead of being in a bus.

Nice 3 hour tour of the city. Same route as NCL offered. Better price, $30./person with tip. Pricrs posted just as you walk out of the port. Very safe and informative. Beautiful city!

Knowledgeable guide. Enjoyed the Cliff Divers and highlights of the city. Tax free shopping was just right.

Took a short walk up the hill to the Mercado (farmers market etc). Huge extensive market for those who are more adventurous. Unfortunately you can't bring any of the great fruit, vegetables and foods back to the ship.No pesty vendors ... Read More

The fort across from the dock is interesting. Since we didn't book an excursion, we walked around a bit. Have seen the cliff divers before, so that wasn't an option. Lots of aggressive vendors--always a treat in Mexico.

We missed the cliff divers because after we disembarked we were told the show was at 1pm and we had to return to the ship at 1:30pm. It was our fault because the ship excursions were scheduled early and they attended a 9am show.

Confined our visit to a walk down the main drag and back. Place looked dirty and felt unsafe. Went back to ship early. Would not go there again.

The arrival into the harbor of Acapulco is very impressive. It is a beautiful port and they were certainly trying to make it appear welcome and safe. There was definitely a visible security presence with armed military on the pier as well as police. The US state department had issued a level 4 “Do not Travel” alert for this city so we chose to stay onboard the ship. I question NCL’s decision to port where there are so many safety concerns and I was surprised that many of my fellow passengers were not even aware that safety is a concern in this area. NCL did not acknowledge or address the safety issues while other cruise lines have stopped going to this port. Fellow passengers said they enjoyed the cliff divers and many noted a high level of police presence in the tourist areas. We would have liked to visit the port but did not think it worth the risk.
