This is my second, and most likely last NCL cruise. The first was the Pride of America in Hawaii. It was fantastic. I can't say enough good stuff about it. This Alaska cruise, completely opposite. I have been on 4 Caribbean cruises with ... Read more

There were 9 people in my traveling party. We chose Norwegian because they offered a decent price for the cruise that we were interested in taking. We also liked the idea of not having a formal night as we knew that we were already going ... Read more

Not sure why I chose Norwegian. I had only sailed on Carnival and really wanted to try another one. The views from our cabin AFT 9278 were spectacular. Whales, iceburgs, otters, eagles. You could not ask for better. BUT - the food ... Read more

We were originally supposed to take a two week Mediterranean cruise on NCL, but with recent events, we decided to change it to a land tour/cruise in Alaska. We had been to Alaska a number of years ago, but wanted to go back. First ... Read more

To sum it up, this cruise was truly overrated. My family has been on cruises with this company three times, and this Alaskan cruise was definitely the worst. The ship kept breaking down, and we would be stuck in on the boat in one location ... Read more

I chose this cruise to see the beauty of Alaska and a lot of wildlife. I saw some of each. but two glitches made this a bad first cruise. 1) At the last minute our itinerary was changed. As a result, I missed Skagway and my excursion ... Read more

The time we could travel corresponded to this Alaska trip, thus we were booked on the Sun. After we were booked I read several reviews some of which were favorable and some less so. Some mentioned a smell of sewage. I must report that ... Read more

We were amazed at the size of the inner stateroom we had. On the 9th deck, it had a king sized bed, a full sized sofa (that could be converted to a double bed), 2 closets, 2 sets of drawers. So much room we even had a place to put our ... Read more

We chose a Norwegian cruise because friends had many enjoyable experiences aboard this gorgeous Norwegian Sun. Our cruise presented such amazing views 24 hours a day.....snow-covered mountains, waterfalls, glaciers, whales, bald ... Read more

Explored Vancouver for a full day before cruise. First time for Norwegian and not sure if we will cruise again with them. Five hour delay departing for some mechanical reason. Another 6 hour departure delay in Sitga when they couldn't ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. This was the first time we have cruised with Norwegian. Let me first say the cruise was good and we had a great time. We are not big drinkers so we were ... Read more

This was our third cruise on NCL and our seventh overall. We are both early 50's. I think this was our best cruise ever. Everything was really nice. Flew in to Vancouver the morning of the cruise and had an NCL bus transfer to the ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose NCL because of the freestyle option. Our lifestyle is very relaxed- we don't like to dress up for anything- we don't like assigned seats- and we could care less about sitting at the Captain's table. We ... Read more

We were given a "free" cruise and had always wanted to see Alaska. The cabin was very nice. The steward was barely adequate. The ship was comfortable with lots of options for things to do and see. The shows we saw were ... Read more

The date we could travel led us to schedule a trip that the NCL Sun was the cruise ship involved. I read reviews before we traveled, some were good and some not. The less than pleasing reviews mentioned a smell of sewage sometimes. ... Read more

This was our second cruise to Alaska, this time from North to south with a visit to Denali National park before. Check in at Anchorage airport train station was fast and uneventful. Cabin (BX) was as expected, not cramped, good view ... Read more

I was traveling with a friend, we did a 5 day land tour prior to our cruise. We had the cruise line book our air, which the initial flight we had (6:30 a.m. departure - Delta) got cancelled and we were never notified. They arbitrarily ... Read more

I have traveled extensively, but this was my FIRST CRUISE. Norwegian Sun EXCEEDED my low expectations. Overall, our experience was a very good one. We could have complained that our luggage arrived at the room separately, the AC didn't ... Read more

Choose Norwegian Sun due to low pricing for Alaska cruise...you get what you pay for! The entire ship smelled like sewage for the entire cruise which distracted from our vacation for sure! Variety shows/comedians were entertaining ... Read more

We booked the 12 day Denali Rail explorer. The cruise part of our trip was great. We picked up the ship in Vancouver and disembarked in Seward Alaska. The ship was small but offered up everything you would need. Nightly entertainment was ... Read more

My wife and I are both senior citizens although both are active for our age. This was my first cruise and my wife's second. Throughout the cruise to Alaska, every employee on the ship proved to be friendly and helpful. The young man who ... Read more

We chose Norweigan as we had been assured it was the best one to cruise the inside passage to Alaska. This was our first with them but our 5th cruise. The ship itself was clean & average. Our cabin was fine but a couple of minor ... Read more

Being our first ocean cruise we didn't know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. Airports could learn a thing or two about embarkation/disembarkation as they were extremely quick and efficient in their process. We were on ... Read more

Over all this was on excellent cruise. The only reason why I am rating the cruise as 3 stars is due to the over maintenance of the ship. Being that it is an older ship (built in 2002) and has gone though renovation some years back, this ... Read more

We just returned from an Inside Passage cruise on the Sun. Of course the ports and scenery were the highlights of this trip. However the cruising aspect was good too. We had 3 adults staying in a mini-suite. The bed and especially the ... Read more
