NCL SUN JUST OK

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

1. NEVER USE ITEMS IN FRIDGE. We removed items in order to fit the buy 5 beer get 1 free along with DH insulin. Cabin steward had us keep in room for him to put back for next cruise....hmmm cold beer, warm beer, cold beer...yuk.

our cruise was a transition for many managers and you could certainly tell. also, since it is a smaller and less prominent ship I believe that we have most of the new mgmt. They are very disorganized.

HOWEVER - Nothing about this cruise bothered us as the crew members on NCL are still happier and nicer than princess.
Food was not spectacular actually quite bland with limited menu.
for this i blame the economy and all of the old people on the cruise whose diets require bland.

so that is the negative...and it really isn't much as we certainly did enjoy our vaction. NCL rules are different than other lines so if you are one to stretch the rules, i suggest that you bee prepared.
do not bring alcohol onto the ship or you More will be mad. (this didn't concern us, but I noticed)

They do not bring purchases to your cabin the last night - you have to pick them up.
The spa REALLY pushes product, but you can purchase cheaper at timetospa.com with coupons via email or on ebay. Less
