A bit disappointed : Norwegian Sun Cruise Review by Susilou

A bit disappointed
Our balcony room was nice, although we prefer front or back to the middle, and sized adequately - even enough closet space for two women! The only "bad" part was the size of the shower - the smallest I've seen on a cruise. Great service by our steward and everyone we encountered on the ship.
We did the Chef's Table dinner, which I would recommend to everyone taking NCL - I understand the menu is the same on all their ships. It was the highlight meal of the trip. The regular dining menus were lackluster and very disappointing. More Very little difference from night to night and I definitely NEVER want to see squash puree again! We did love the freedom to eat when and where we liked, but the food in general was not up to what we have had before. I will commend them on having a very good buffet and casual choices for dining if you did not do one of the dining rooms. And the dining room for breakfast was absolutely awful - the worst food (pancakes) I have ever had on a ship. Luckily, many good choices on the buffet - and the French bread made on the ship - wonderful!
All in all, I would definitely cruise again, but be prepared to eat mainly in the buffet or sports bar or tapas. Less
Cabin review: BB8246 Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin was nice - quiet location, not much movement(which WE like!). I found it to be too far from everywhere (well, as far away as you can be on a medium size ship!) The balcony was a good size, the closet had room for all the clothes brought by two women, but could have had a bit more floor space for shoes:o)Would have liked drawers in the bed side table and the bathroom, but didn't really need them for storage. Bathroom size was good except for the small shower.Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BB) Reviews >>

Loved this new stop and it's small town feel. Not much to do, but that was fine with me - enjoyed walking around.
