There's always a chance to tender if there are more ships that mooring spots but I've never tendered in any of those ports. So, it's likely you'll dock throughout your cruise.

We are on that Jade sailing and I'm happy with the substitutions. It could have been a lot worse. Even so, if we sailed for 10 days to nowhere, I'd still be happy to be on the ship. I get being...

We are on NCL Jade at the end of March and they've already bailed on STT, SXM, and SJ. None of the original six ports are still on our itinerary. Not sure why are going back and others have changed...

Next March we're sailing on the Jade, which will be our 14th NCL cruise and 35th overall, so we've been on just about every mass market line there is and then some. This will be our first trip on the...

I agree with snorkeling in Roatan...it's our favorite experience and we've done it every time we've been to Roatan. I'll defend the Tabayana experience a bit. Is it overpriced, probably. Is it hot...

That is true. Ours wasn't a challenge, but it was expensive. We paid at the airport in Buenos Aires. Some people didn't know about it ahead of time and it was $250+ for the two of us, if I remember...

We sailed with Oceania on our SA trip, but since no one has answered your post, I'l give you my two cents. Not sure when you were thinking of sailing, but rough seas can happen any time and it...

Yes, we're on the March 23rd Jade sailing. I saw something yesterday that an official in St. Thomas was hoping to reopen to ships in January. That is ambitious but I can't imagine the money they are...

There are enough southern Caribbean cruises that are already going to St. Lucia and Barbados (NCL and other lines) that I would never expect them to even attempt those islands. They can only accept...

It's been a while since we were in St. Petersburg, but at that time, if you wanted to get off the ship on anything other than a ships tour, you needed a Russian visa that had to be purchased prior to...

I'm not sure about all ships, but the Divina has a nice, quiet pool on a back deck.

It doesn't look live Divina goes into the Panama Canal, just up to it and then back up the Atlantic/Caribbean coast. If it went into the Canal, I think that would be a better route. Without that, I'd...

I'll add a bit more of our experience, in case it's helpful. I think YC is a completely different experience, more insulating. We were fantastica inside room.

The price is what drew us at first...

I haven't been on Navigator but we were on Divina during Easter week. If these holiday weeks are similar to the spring, it will be packed to the gills with kids. Any time school is out there are a...

We haven't experienced NCL's bid process yet. This year we were on MSC, last year on RCCL, so it's been 2 years now since we've been on NCL. We've upgraded several times when there's been a price...

Thanks for the reply. I'm glad to know that set up is still there. We've been in plenty of NCL insides and they're basically all the same. The refurbished Jade looks like a new ship. Our cruise isn't...

Setsail,

Great pix of the interior room. Did they replace the vanity seating that had the large mirror or is that across from the TV? I usually use that area to sit and dry my hair/put on make up...

This was on the Divina, so maybe the Seaside will be different but I would think it's still a bunk.

We were just on the Divina over spring break/Easter week. One of the staff said there were over 1000 kids that week and it probably added to the...

It is 12 per person. DH and I got the alcohol ones and our dd got the non-alcoholic. We used them for drinks, coffee, soda, smoothies, ice cream. You won't have a problem using them. They do have a...

Dikucz,

I don't remember exactly, but the ride wasn't too far, maybe 10 minutes or so of pretty scenery. I'm thinking we maybe had about 3 or so hours at the beach. Of course we weren't ready to...

It's funny you mention the urinals. I had forgotten that but after one of the shows my husband used the public restroom and it took forever for him to come out. Then he said there were only stalls...

Tulum is a great site to see but it's not on Cozumel. We've been there twice - once on a cruise from Cozumel and once while staying near there. It was a while ago, but this is approximately the...
