View of Roatan, Honduras from NCL Getaway Cruise Ship

The Honduras port… it was beautiful and HOT!

Shhh, baby sleeping with cruise ship behind

In Honduras we only walked off the boat and around the shops at the port. The baby was sleeping, it was SO hot and the boys love being on the boat when everyone else is on shore. No lines for slides is pretty sweet!

Local Artisans in Honduras

Splash Park on NCL Getaway Cruise Ship

The girls loved having the splash area to themselves while everyone else on board was off the ship in Honduras

Drink of the day as I cheered Honduras

Family Dinner at La Cocina NCL Getaway

I love the family dinners on the cruise. For one there is no bill to worry about and two there is no where else we need to be. So relaxing to just sit and talk with each other.

Costa Maya

Love at first sight in Costa Maya… such gorgeous turquoise water

Maya Park

We visited Maya Park- the lost Mayan Kingdom at this port which I cannot speak highly enough about. There was SO much to do for everyone in the family and they pick you right up from the port. Plus, they are only about 5 minutes away so its such a laid back journey to fun!

Maya the lost Mayan kingdom

Check out these waterslides at Maya Park!! They also had ziplining including lines that ended in water, a zip coaster, kids splash park, amazing lazy river and pools. One of our absolute favorite things we did on this vacation!!

Sushi from Wasabi on the NCL Getaway

The sushi was extra but for $3-6 it was a great deal. It was super yummy!

Towel bunny on a cruise boat bed

Can’t post about a cruise and not include one of our towel animals 😉

Main pool on NCL Getaway

This is the main pool… which was a bit odd as this is the adults only area. Also, where the jacuzzi’s are located. Kids are allowed in one of them however all the adults get mad thinking you are breaking the rules when you let them in. This may have been the only big complaint I had about the layout of this cruise (the NCL Getaway). That and the super tiny jogging track.

Cocktail off balcony in Belize taken on NCL Getaway

Cheering Belize this time. The cocktails were on point. So good!!

Sea Bass entree from Cagney's Steakhouse on NCL Getaway Cruise

My sea bass at Cagney’s Steakhouse. It was perfectly cooked.

Chocolate Torte at La Cucina on NCL Getaway

This chocolate torte from La Cucina was delicious. They also have an affogato that is super tasty too!

Nacho Libre Masks in Cozumel

Fun with masks in Cozumel

Handmade Tortillas in Cozumel on the Cozumel Chef food tour

We took a food tour in Cozumel with Cozumel Chef. I highly recommend it. The tour guide was fantastic, friendly, knowledgable and great with our kids. This is a pic of the women making corn tortillas for the quesadilla shop we went to. Talk about fresh!

Fried Cod on Cozumel Chef Food Tour

This cod may look intimidating but I assure you it was amazing. Especially, served inside a warm tortilla.

Cozumel Port

Svedka Ice Bar on board the NCL Getaway

Did you know kids are allowed in the ice bar? One kid per adult gets in free. Adults pay $20 usd and get 2 free drinks inside.
