Beautiful, quaint little town with plenty to see and do while in port. Was definitely my favorite and look forward to visiting again this summer. Have to try the many flavors of freshly made mini donuts!

It was fun to see local people dressed up with their traditional costumes and playing drums to greet us when we were docking. We also saw a whale swimming by. We were lucky. After we got docked, we walked along the beautiful beach. Many kids...More

So many things can happen. On our cruise same time 2018 there were delays and NCL had to refund some excursions. So, I can't recommend booking outside NCL.
