Mostly positive but several service misses on Norwegian Sun

Nov 11th, 2019

This is an older but remodeled ship. For the most part, it was an excellent cruise with great food variety and not as crowded as some ships I have been on in the past. My biggest complaint was inconsistent service, not just in food staff but the staff in general. Sometimes it was completely hit or miss. The musicians and bands were very good. There wasn't as many activities on board as I expected. The NCL private island Great Stirrup Cay was absolutely wonderful and if you have a cruise stop that includes it, you must get off for at least a few hours. Overall, considering this is not one of the giant mega-ships out there, I feel this was an excellent cruise for the price paid and I really enjoyed myself. I would travel NCL again without hesitation.

Relaxing cruise on a very pretty smaller ship. Food was satisfactory but not remarkable and entertainment a bit lacking.

The cruise is good, a lot of areas can be improved

Nov 7th, 2019

The ship is very clean, a lot of food and drinks. Doesn't have many activities to do onboard. I had a bad experience with the cabin, for the same price I will choose another cruiseline.

Traveling with Norwegian first time and last time.

Nov 7th, 2019

Cruise was okay, first time cruising on Norwegian. I can only say we will not be taking it again. So many things that cannot compare to other Cruise lines we have been on. One thing that was bothersome was not being able to see out the windows. They were so dirty from the salt air. Could not enjoy the beauty that the islands and sea has to offer not being able to take pictures from the ship as we sail along. Memories are everything.

We loved the feel and look of this ship. We were just on a cruise last month that was in Miami. The culture, style and feel were a step or two down from this cruise line and ship. I would definitely do this cruise again. The events, staff and entertainment were top notch!

Fun Norwegian Sun 5 day cruise

Nov 3rd, 2019

Overall, yes I would cruise w/ them again. It was a great experience and my first Norwegian cruise. The on boarding and disembarking processes were the best I’ve seen thus far. The music entertainment was amazing throughout. Room was clean and and plenty of storage, demographic was all over the board. If you wanted to party you could but if you also wanted to relax you could do that too.

Great cruise for the price!

Nov 3rd, 2019

For the price, I'd do this cruise again in a heartbeat! Was very uncrowded, relaxing, clean, and sufficiently entertaining. Oceanview room was nice enough we really didn't miss the balcony we'd had the previous 5 cruises. There are more interesting ports, but this was great for a quick get-away!
