Ship Facts: Norwegian Sun Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Sun Deck Plans
First T/A and First NCL
It was a little hectic and warm as it is around the central Florida area this time of year when we checked on. The waiting line to board was bearable. Once the details were attended to we proceeded quickly to locate our cabin. Our bags were not there yet, so it was off the a nice meal, one of many in the Seven Seas dining room. We sailed just a little after five p.m. and headed out in the Atlantic on what was to be a number of wonderful weather days.

After reading some of the negative reviews posted on this site, we were apprehensive, but that soon faded away after the wonderful service and attitude of the ship's staff. We just can't say enough about the hotel and dining staff. They were attentive and friendly at all times. The food was very good to excellent. The entertainment was the best that one could hope for on a ship this size and number of days at sea. We saw at least 5 or 6 shows and were wowed each time at their professionalism. The person responsible for booking (cruise director?) these performers deserves a raise.

Yes, sometimes the Garden Cafe buffet was hectic, but manageable. We tried to fit most of our eating to the Seven Seas dining room. We didn't visit the extra charge dining options. We did have the usual complaint of a out-dated TV system and yes, the internet connection if expensive and slow. These are minor issues and certainly didn't ruin our cruise. We really enjoyed visiting Punta Delgada. A group organized on the web pages of Cruise Critic provided us with a great deal of information and companionship that enhanced our experience. We did not participate in any NCL tours, but went off by ourselves or in a small groups assisted by members of this group that had visited these ports previously.

We stayed over 3 days in Copenhagen at the completion of our cruise and had a wonderful time. After 14 days of cruising and an additional 3 days of on-shore visiting we are two tired, but happy puppies.

Thanks to everyone who helped us along the way. Hope to see you again.
