We signed up to go to Xel-ha through the NCL Dream on the Dec. 16th cruise. Has anyone done it through the ship. It says it's a 5 hr. excursion, I was wondering how much of that time would be traveling. We'll be getting off the ship at Playa Del Carmen. I was scared to try that one on my own because of the travel time. But I hope we don't get shorted on our time at the park because of it being a ship excursion. So I was hoping to hear from some of you who have done it through the ship...
I would stick with using the ship excursion for this LARGE park; the travel time as I recall is about 45 minutes each way via bus from Playa Del Carmen, . It is a big park with lots to do, but if you stick with the ship excursion if they are late you will probably not miss the ship, but if a private excursion was late, well you would probably be watching your ship sail away.
PS here is the park's website http://www.xel-ha.com/
