Beware of pushy Porters demanding tips for their service. Porter argued with my mom for 10 minutes straight because she had no cash and no cash app on her phone to pay him.

Departure: Could not be easier. Arrived at Terminal 3 slightly before our scheduled time of 11:30. Dropped the luggage quickly (few cars dropping bags) and parked in the parking garage across the street, which had ample spaces available. We pre-paid parking before leaving home and handed the parking attendant our printed ticket and parked on the second level near the elevators. Although we were early, by the time we had competed check-in our group number had already been called. We were still on the ship before many passengers had shown up. We had Guy’s burgers for lunch, at 1:30 we went to our cabin to change and went to enjoy the hot tubs on the Serenity deck before it was crowded. Return: Getting off the ship was quick and orderly and went much faster than the scheduled departure times. We learned that self disembarkation was starting with Deck 14 and we were on Deck 4 (Riviera), so we got luggage tags when they were offered at 10 am on the last day (Friday) and had a low group number (5 out of 28). Customs consisted of checking passports, and asking how many cigars and how much liquor (rum) we were bringing in from Cuba. We were under the duty-free limits and were on our way home. Read Less

VERY disorganized port, were moved from long line to long line in a hot stuffy room. Heard many complaints from other passengers about this embarkation process in Tampa.

Tampa is one of the easiest ports of departure. The parking at terminal 6 is so cloase to the ship there is no need to check your bags before you park.

We had transfer to the ship from the airport through NCL and it was a very smooth process once we got to the port the lines were a bit long and they apologized and it moved pretty quickly.

Terminal was not a fun place. Poorly designed for the number of people and what was required for getting on a ship. I would seriously consider a different port for our next cruise.

This was the first time that we chose to arrive at the port once boarding had begun. We arrived at 12:30 and had no wait getting through the steps and onto the ship. From the time we were dropped off to the time we sat down in the Summer Palace for a relaxing lunch was no more than 25 minutes. Way to go! Read Less
