Relaxing cruise

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

Our first NCL cruise. It was good. The Sun a somewhat older ship and smaller than we usually sail with. But it is well maintained and in a good condition. What we missed was the online information on our bills and booking excursions online and of course the big screen at the swimming pool. A negative point to us was that on sea days they close some decks partially for maintenance, so it is getting crowded on the other places especially when there is a hard wind blowing on one side so most people try to sit at the same side of the ship..

We did have a cabin with balcony deck 9 midship. Nice cabin but it was the smallest cabin we did have experienced until now. Also the balcony is rather small . The staff is very friendly and well trained. We experienced a very good service overall. Because it is a smaller ship you get quickly familiar with the staff and they reckognize you after some days. Because we did speak some Bahasa it was nice to see the surprise of the Philippian and More Indonesian service staff

We ate in the Seven Seas restaurant for dinner and that is good food. First night even lobster tail. And the dinner at Thanksgiving was very good with an enourmous dessert buffet afterwards. Compared with Carnival and Royal Caribbean we didn't see that much differences overall.

Entertainment was at best so-so. But in fact it is more or less equal to what we've seen on most ships.

The itinerary is ok with a good balance between land and sea days.

We took several excursions and the difference in quality was great. St. Maaarten was disappointing, in Columbia you soent most time in several malls and St. Johns was great.

All in all a very good cruise, would we sail the Sun again - yes! Less
