Took the ship's shuttle into Trujillo. Plaza de Armas has lots of great colonial casonas, many with exhibits open to the public (including the blue building just to the right of the Cathedral, and the Casa de la Identidad Regional)

When you are past the pier, the port itself had breathtaking views of the water from behind tropical trees and flowers. We walked along the main road out of the port and there were plenty of restaurants, each of which backs directly to the beach. Very easy to find a spot to have a beer with your toes in the sand. Lots of passengers continued walking to see the town but we were not completely comfortable and opted instead to have a $2 beer and walk along the shore back toward the port. Read Less

We had a wonderfully relaxing day at the beach at Tranquility Bay. The couple who owns the resort are lovely people. We noted that they do a lt of humanitarian work for the area, and asked what we could do. They mentioned the need for backpacks and supplies for a few of the local children they sponsor to go to school. They also work with a meals on wheels program but we really can't help there. We brought two backpacks and our kids helped collect school supplies to fill the bags. They were very happy and showed us pictures of the two children that would receive the bags. Their resort is beautiful, the journey by water taxi was quite an adventure! And Larry and Linda made us feel right at home. We had massages and paddle boarded. I would recommend it to anyone. The town itself is a little ... Raw I guess. But we felt pretty safe and they were friendly. I loved that it's still pretty untouched by tourism. Read Less

bus small, crowded, whizzed by so fast it was impossible to even get good photos. NOT worth the money

l enjoyed this port. I went to the water fall and the fort on my own. It was much cheaper than the excursion.

Walked around the town. Although quite poor the people do not have their hand out but there was an extreme presence of security around the town and port.

people very pleasant and not too pushy if we did not want them to give us a guided tour

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.

An amazing new addition to the itinerary for Norwegian. This was a beautiful port, very friendly locals and the views are breathtaking. It is super hot here, drink lots of water! I would love to come visit this port again.

Honduras - Walk down the beach to Chico's. It's a little quieter out there, away from a lot of the other tourists, and the guy who runs it is an awesome Canadian who sold his car for that bar. He'll take care of you, and it's very safe along the beach and around the bars since security is paid to watch over all the tourists coming off the boats. Buy the Red Snapper for lunch! It's fresh, and delicious. Read Less

Lifeboats were used for tendering - quite an experience for us first time cruisers. Very new port of call, still under construction - we see some potential and want to visit it again in 3-5 years and observe how it evolves.Very hot that day - we were only there in the morning (nice walk on the beach and gift shop visiting) and decided to go back to the ship for lunch.Similar to many reviews, we enjoyed the people and environment there. It is not very commercialized and the merchants are very friendly there. You can get bottle water and coconut water in much more decent price than in other ports. Read Less

I thought this port was interesting. It's a newer port, so we just walked around. There was a historic area with a church that we saw. We had to take a tender boat to get to the port. There is a bit of a hill to get to the church, but I thought very manageable if you are relatively in shape. However, I would recommend trying to go to this port early because it got HOT when we were there at the end of March. I was glad to be climbing that hill early in the morning before it got too hot. It's got a lot of dirt roads and just some shopping to do at the port. Prices are cheaper the further you walk from where the tender's bring you. Overall, I actually thought Honduras had the best prices for souvenirs, but didn't have the variety of items like some of the other ports. I enjoyed this location, but it's definitely new and in the process of being developed. There are quite a few policeman with guns on the streets. Read Less

Poor and undeveloped. The "old town" was interesting but stop itself was not noteworthy.

I did do other excursions in Cozumel, & Belize but this was the one that will stick with me the most. I disagree with a few people that say NCL shouldn't go into this port. It was so nice to see the natives who are so happy to have people come into their very poor country & be able to sell their fruits & hand made souveniers. We saw a lot of kids running around & wondered why they weren't in school. We were told if the parents couldn't afford to buy them a uniform they couldn't go to school. Wow. We were walking down the street & had a gentleman ask if he could give us a walking tour for $5. I was alittle hesitant but he explained that all the people that were wearing name tags, spoke English & were registered thru the tourist bureau. I'm so glad we had him with us. His name was Dennis. (I saw another review with people who had hired him.) He took us to places I wouldn't have walked. He took us to the fort, an outdoor shopping area with only locals, thru the town ( there were police with guns on the back of a truck & in front of the bank) & to the William Walker grave site. ( He was an interesting bad man. Look up his history). After we saw the sights, he took us to a restaurant & beach area. Getting into the water is rocky so wear sand shoes. This would be a great place to take kids & hopefully have them realize how lucky they are. I'd like to go back in about 5 years just to see how different it will look. Read Less

Pleasantly surprised how beautiful the scenery is .. In Honduras. The view from our ship, anchored off Trujillo was amazing! We had to take tender boats to the dock. The Dock was filled with many vendors, where you can get great deals on souvenirs,etc... We had a great piña colada slushee there. The nearby beach was only a few steps away.. With an unbelievable warm ocean water! Got some great pics. Did not go further into town, as we do not get up very early to disembark. This is a new port for NCL, so don't expect a large tourist friendly town.. More laid back, easy going,relaxing.! Read Less

I have to say, I don't know why NCL made a cruise port out of Trujillo, Honduras ("Banana Coast"). It's still very third world. We took a taxi from town to a beach about 20 minutes out of town. Immediately when you leave town the roads are dirt and mud and the cab had to go slow to avoid ruts and drive around goats on the road. They had rain the day before we were there, so that made it worse. Fortunately, when we got to the beach Campamento it was nice, manicured, nice bar, nice beach chairs, etc. But Trujillo is definitely not where you would go and call it a vacation. Don't go on a cruise that stops at Banana Coast. Read Less
