Had a nice time--2 adults and an 11-year-old

Jan 28th, 2020

We had a great time on this 1/23/20 sail. One rocky sea day when we first left Florida. Be prepared for this as many people were sea sick. Note this as well if you take ferry to mainland in Cozumel. There is some kind of chemical smell that was making me feel more ugh than the heavy rocking. If you have kids that may get bored easily may not be the best sail but I think this too is very kid-dependent.

Scary Ride the last 2 nights

Jan 28th, 2020

The rough seas is what I will take away from this cruise. Please tell the Captain that he needs to brush up on his “bedside manner” with his passengers when it gets so rough that the closet door keeps opening all night, and the glass water bottles on the desk won’t stop clanking against each other all night.

Rough Seas

Jan 27th, 2020

THERE ARE NO STABILIZERS ON THIS SHIP! That should be noted somewhere bc that is not something we have ever had to check on with prior cruises. The decks closed as the seas were so rough the entire trip and barf bags were hanging randomly everywhere! It was HORRIBLE!!! The ship rocked the entire trip even staff were sick. It is very tacky to see barf bags seriously every time you turned around. The staff noted that this was not unusual seas so it wasn't just our trip. The public restrooms were not clean especially outside of the theater. They frequently smelled of urine and dirty.

January 18-23,2020 Norwegian Sun Not so Fun Cruise

Jan 27th, 2020

Compared to Royal Caribbean Empress (similar size boat, crew and capacity), overall service on NCL was extemely poor. Most likely would not sail again with NCL. Seas very rough - no announcement from crew to be aware of rough seas ahead. Too many smoking areas that were not in isolated areas, you had to walk through one or more smoking areas to go most anywhere.

Fun, Economical Cruise

Jan 26th, 2020

We selected this cruise mainly to just get away. The economical price, special bonuses and the smaller size of the ship sealed the deal for us. Everything went well on the cruise, but we were lucky to not be susceptible to motion sickness since the last day had very rough seas.

Basic cruise experience

Jan 26th, 2020

It was a good buy for the package that I purchased and time of year. For those that have cruised a lot you will find this cruise very basic.

Wonderful Caribbean Cruise

Although the food was less than excellent, it was good. The cruise was relaxing and the staff friendly. No lines to wait in, cabins were clean.

Rock N Roll to Mexico

Small ship, large waves and 25 knots made for a rough ride. Free drink package and GREAT food made it a little smoother.

It was our first NCL cruise, having been on three previous cruises. Evening dining was more casual which made it easy. Great service. Especially enjoyed the specialty restaurants. Our one issue was public restrooms were hard to find and less than desired.
