  1. I'm aware that there is no snorkeling right off the ship, which is why I'm asking where to go from there, and how to get there. We don't do excursions booked through the cruise lines, they are way too expensive, waste too much time waiting for everyone, and the people are always terrible. We have done it twice and regretted it both times. What can we do on our own?
  2. Where would the best snorkeling be? We will be in port at Harvest Caye from 8am-5pm and want to go snorkel on our own - we know what we are doing and have equipment so we don't need a "tour" or "guide", we just need to know where to go and how to get there (and back again!). Suggestions?
  3. We have some dietary restrictions, and have done well eating on many cruise lines, but NCL was the worst as far as getting a good variety of interesting options for meals. We did a 13 day cruise last year and are doing a week long one this month. On the previous cruise it took them half the cruise before they got an allergy friendly menu together for us, and never once did we get any "fun" deserts (just fruit!). On other lines we had plenty of options! We were also given variations of almost the same thing every day (rice with veggies in various forms) We are gluten free (2 with a sensitivity, one with non-celiac allergy), AND vegan, and there are a few other things we can't have (some nuts, kid can't have oats) Anyway, are there any tricks to getting more variety in meals? Deserts we can eat that aren't just pineapple? We obviously alert them in advance, as well as talk to staff on board, but last time the food selections were so boring!
  4. Yep we always alert in advance AND go talk to them when on board AND when we get to meals. We like to do buffet for breakfast/lunch (lunch is not bad with some of the Indian options and the salad bar working fine for us), breakfast is hard even at home to get good things so we are used to that. It is dinner that was tough last time. 3 of the 5 of us have special diets, mostly the same with a few different things. We ate SO much rice last time between lunch and dinner for example and the dinners were way under-seasoned, as if they thought allergies = bland.
