I took this cruise because I had not been to South America in over 6 years, and wanted to experience the sights and sounds of the region again. Specifically took this cruise because it fit my schedule well and the price was very good. I ... Read more

This was our first (and probably last) cruise with NCL, having cruised with Princess previously. Firstly, we made a decision to walk to the port from our accommodation in Valparaiso. This was a complete disaster, as you have to check-in ... Read more

I had chosen this particular line due to a group of factors such as route, the number of days, ports. Analysing by the shipping point of view is visible that is one of the older ships of the Norwegian Fleet having the necessity of a ... Read more

Being in close quarters with your spouse for 17 days, not to mention hundreds of other passengers and crew, sounds like a good way to get cranky and swear off cruising for life. On the contrary, we found ourselves savoring the voyage, ... Read more

This was our 1st cruise with NCL. I think we will likely be cruising with another line in the future. Before I go blasting away, I do want to say that for the most part, this is a nice ship with a great crew. Before we even got on the ... Read more

This was my 2nd sailing on the NCL Sun. The last was 8 years ago in balcony 9235 and this time just a few doors down in 9244. Surprisingly, the ship is still in pretty good shape. While it does show some age here and there, it's well ... Read more

Apart from my poor cabin choice, we really enjoyed our first NCL cruise to Alaska. We enjoyed the MDR, Le Bistro, Cagney's and La Cucina. I wouldn't have been disappointed if I only had to eat in the MDR, though the menu was a bit ... Read more

We chose the NCL Sun as we've done many NCL cruises in the past and like the Freestyle options, especially since it was just two of us on this cruise. We did Alaska because we've never been there and it was Zika free. The Boat: I ... Read more
