10 day Thanksgiving Cruise NCL Sun

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
NCL SUN Nov 2012- thumbs up!
Photographers- Alex Haas and John Martin- excellent!
Glenn Benedicto -Casino Manager- great guy
Gabby Turner- Tour Consultant- very smart and knows the ports extremely well
Le Bistro food and staff - especially Sari Lestari from Indonesia
Sanjay Shatri in the spa- outstanding on keeping the men's lock room clean and orderly
John Thorgood- Soux chef really helped me out with my dietetic needs
Renee' -- cocktail waiter in Windjammers- wonderful and attentive
Sushma Devenish -- fantastic staff member
Cat Wells singer and guitar player- talented and sweet to talk with.
Maderno- the Brazilian steakhouse was out of this world, we did it twice.

NCL SUN Nov 2012- thumbs down!
Limited East Indian food on the buffet- you have some of the best Indian chefs on your ships
Pub Crawls was very loud again, distributive and everywhere but at least nobody was vomiting like on the NCL Spirit
Sushi ala carte..... More You've got to be kidding, make it a flat rate again.
Food and service in the main dining rooms awful again
Il Adagio was very disappointing. Beautiful restaurant but the food was not prepared as described on the menu.
Bottom line- NCL has some beautiful ships that are clean, orderly and do not smell like mold (Royal Caribbean) and the staff are some of the nicest people ever I have found in the service industry. I just hope that you tweak some things and make NCL even better. Less
