  3. Norwegian Jewel
I found a handful of people complaining about length of time to get a drink. We found the best waiter the 1st day & our group just meshed with him. He had the best personality & went the extra mile for us daily. We usually started out the day with a nice tip because he was well deserving of it. I hope you all are lucky enough to meet Oswell Raymond. He will make your trip extra special. You will leave feeling like family! Food was always good. The sushi was delicious & well worth the little extra. Music by the pool was always upbeat & fun. The comedian was pretty funny too. My only complaint would be the bathroom close to the pool. It was clean, but each day it stunk like yearn a bit more. By the end of day five I didn't even bother using that room - the indoor room was very close by so, it was never a bother! I am anxious to take my next Norwegian cruise!

Had a BLAST!!!!

  • Banana Coast (Trujillo)
    The towns people were so nice & respectful. Everything was breathtakingly beautiful! We didn't go too far in, but did talk to another cruiser that walked comfortably into the city.

  • Belize City
    We decided to walk around Belize & sight see. Bad decision. The people were very aggressive & followed you down the street for a fair amount of time. When we got to the bridge another townsmen wanted to take us back in an alley to show us his art. We simply said no & tried to ignore him. I started getting nervous as we continued down the street & our group of four decided it would be best to turn around & go back. Again the man was on the bridge & this time accused us of being part of the kkk & suggested we "get out of his fu**ing town". We waited at a resteraunt for the tender & we're going to order some food, but instead didn't get waited on. We left there feeling very unlinked & unwelcome.

  • Nachi Cocom Beach Club
    Nice & clean resort. There were only 40 people booked there so that was extra nice. Great food & hospitality. The beer we all liked ran out fairly quickly, but other than that, no complaints.
