We had a great time on this cruise. We had never been to South America so we did the back to back from Buenos Aires to Rio so we went to each port twice. My favorite port was Buzios, Brazil, but all the ports were nice, especially the ... Read more

So this was a starter cruise for us in that region of S.A. Overall we enjoyed this cruise experience, once we got onboard. There were some ups and downs. The NCL arranged transportation from the Rio airport was disorganized. There were ... Read more

Before embarking our tour company had arranged for two days and 3 nights in Santiago beforehand and we will not discuss this here as the airline lost our luggage and this is nothing to do with NCL or our tour operator. However, Santiago is ... Read more

We chose NCL because of the price and the port itinerary. We have been on other cruise lines and NCL just once before about 15 years ago. This ship was a nice size, only 2000 passengers. Easy to get around, but maybe because there was ... Read more

We decided that this cruise would take us to places we would not see otherwise. We joined in Valparaiso (Chile) and left in Buenos Aires (Argentina), having visited the Chilean and Argentinian Pategonia and the Falkland Islands. ... Read more

This was a very good cruise. Weather was super in all ports. A rough patch came up on one sea day, but the ship was stable in strong winds and high waves. Falklands offered a rocky return tender to the ship, but was well worth the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for three main reasons. The itinerary went to ports in Brazil that we have never been before. Two, we love the staff and the service on the NCL Sun. Three, the food is always excellent, although we ate at specialty ... Read more

Got back from our cruise on Sat morning. Couple things about this cruise and our own personal preferences. The ship was too small. One pool, and hundreds of sun loving Brazilians and Argentinians and their many children do not make for ... Read more

Great itinerary, I boarded in Buenos Aires ( after a wonderful week) and enjoyed visiting Uruguay and the coast of Brazil then departed in Rio for a week. This size ship ( I think 1,800 ) is perfect for a cruise like this. Easy to get ... Read more

I choose this cruise as it is a great way to see part of South America in a safe and secure environment. Given the crime levels in South America and not speaking Spanish or Portuguese the cruise is the obvious choice to get a flavour of ... Read more
