If you scuba dive, those excursions are awesome!! However, I would advise any other line than Norwegian. We had a lousy time on the wind and will never sail with them again. Their "freestyle" cruising is a mess. Lets face it, most everyone eats dinner at the same time, and they cannot possibly seat everyone at once. So they started taking reservations. So much for eating when you please. We were turned away 3 nights in a row as we could not be seated.
We went on the tour to see the ruins in Feb. It was a comfortable bus ride thru Belize, with a very informative guide. It was quite interesting, but dress accordingly, cause you do a lot of walking....they gave us time afterwards to shop, only a couple places to shop at the ruins...prices ok> The history, our guide gave us was extraordianary.
We did not do the ruins, we spend as much time as we can underwater. Although my parents have been. They enjoyed them. We did see some on our previous cruises. They were neat, but not our cup of tea. Hopefully you will have a much better time on your cruise than we did. We will avoid that "freestyle" cruising in the future like the plague...hahaha
Well, the "freestyle" dining would work if you could actually eat when you want to. Afterall, with seating for 1032 at a time and 3300 people want to eat around the same time, it is just not possible. We were turned away 3 times and told to try back in an hour. Then they started taking reservations!! So much for FREEstyle dining. By the way, those who had reservations got nice tables, those without were seated in the back. Again, so much for freestyle dining. Other than that, we had a pretty good time. But we will avoid NCL in the future.
