Overall Member Rating
Norwegian Sun Baltic cruise - the highs and lows.
Destination: Baltic Sea
Service on the Sun was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful and the ship itself is a nice size.
We found breakfast in the buffet, which was often crowded, to be a bit boring with the choice not changing from day to day. Most of the meals in the dining room were fairly good but never really great. We tried More both the Italian and French specialty restaurants to be only so-so and had no desire to return to either. Some other people thought differently and some agreed with our opinion. In the Italian I chose the calamari which was very good and the Pork Saltimbucca which was a bit dry and ordinary. In the French Bistro I chose Coquille St.Jaques - a bit tasteless, and Boullabaise which was nothing like The French dish of the same name. It was a thin red base, quite tasty, with potato and other vegetables as well as seafood. Not bad for seafood soup but certainly not Boullabaise that I expected. All in all, a bit second rate.
There were some nice touches on this cruise that we haven't seen on others, e.g. when returning to the ship on port days, on the docks they provided either hot chocolate or other drinks and cakes or ice cream. However, there were no toiletries in the cabin, only dispensers of liquid soap and shampoo, and no chocolates on the bed at night and no newspaper as with some lines. Also prior to disembarkation we were not given any information and were left to find out for ourselves what their arrangements were. Some people did receive this information but we did not. To sum up, although this was our second Norwegian cruise, I don't think I would choose them again. Less
Cabin review: BD8060 Balcony
Cabin 8060' deck 8 towards the stern. We had no problems with this cabin other than the chairs on the balcony rocked in the wind making it noisy at night but easily fixed by laying them down when it was windy. The showers are very small but overall a comfortable cabin far enough away from the lifts and stairs to be quiet, close enough for convenience.Read All Balcony (BD) Reviews >>
