Corana Cruise

Mar 17th, 2020

Overall we enjoyed our Cruise, especially the Spa, Speciality Restaurants and enjoyed visiting Key West and Cozumel. However with over 1,000 spingbreakers onboard we encountered many intoxicated young people who did not know how to handle themselves. For instance 1 passed out person laying on the floor in the atrium near guest services, people in only bikinis or swim trunks in public areas other than the pool. They would sit on furniture and leave wet marks. NCL appeared not to consistently enforce the dress code for the public areas.

Fantastic cruise !

Mar 16th, 2020

This cruise ship is small with not a lot of things to do for children. As I have no kids I loved it. The food was fantastic, the casino full of slots and tables, there were enough pool beds for everyone. I will definitely board the Norwegian Sun again

First time Crusier

Mar 16th, 2020

Overall, it would have been nice during the booking process if someone told us this was a spring break cruise. It could have really been a nice time if we chose another week. It did not start well when we saw that our luggage was compromised and water bottles and a bottle of wine were confiscated from our luggage. Smoking in the Casino was a big dissappointment giving us little to do while at sea during the day time, since the spring breakers took up the entire 11th floor pool deck.

Fun Cruise

Mar 10th, 2020

Overall it was a good cruise. Anytime the sun is out it's a good day. If you are looking for more than that I'd cruise a different ship. Not a lot going on on this ship. I would not let Norwegian book your flights! NY to Fl took 7-8 hours with layovers! A direct flight would have been great.

Good Things Small Package

Mar 9th, 2020

I’ve cruised Norwegian’s larger ships and fell in love. The Sun was much smaller than what I was use to but found that they expertly handled all passengers with. There was a more personal feel than on a larger ship which I really appreciated. I thought the cafe would be over crowded since it is contained in such a small area, but I never had to wait long to get food or find a seat. I would defiantly cruise this ship again.

Great ports, beautiful ship, fantastic cabins. Wasn't impressed with the food, theater entertainment or the staff.

Mar 8th, 2020

This was our one and only time cruising with Norwegian. The food was quite lacking in quality and quantity. The theater entertainment was some of the lowest quality we have had. The cabin staff and the dining staff were very good, but the rest seem to pretty much ignore you. Found the ship beautiful and the balcony cabins were great. The ports of call and excursions were a lot of fun and not out of price range. All in all not a bad experience, but may never cruise with Norwegian again.

A cruise to remember---very relaxing, BUT...

Mar 7th, 2020

We arrived early at for embarkation and were through formalities in 20 minutes. We were afraid the ship would be 'empty' because of COVID, but lots more people showed up. We got into our cabins earlier than expected and our cabin was OUTSTANDING as was our STEWARD, Jayesh Nundell. We ate Teppanyaki, which was excellent as were the buffets. We ate in the main dining room on the second night and >> much of the food was not good

Okay cruise

Mar 6th, 2020

Overall a nice cruise, but nothing special about NCL that would entice me to cruise with them again. Received much better service and better food on Holland America.
