Relaxing on the Sun
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The ship: She is the smallest ship we have sailed on but she is a beauty. She was very clean and well maintained. The decor is pleasing and relaxing to look at. Chairs in common areas were comfortable and there seemed to be plenty of them. My only complaint is that there are no fish on the carpet. If you have sailed with NCL you know that the fish on the carpet are always swimming toward the front of the ship which makes it easier to figure out where you are.
The cabin: The cabin was a standard picture window cabin. It seemed a little small but there was plenty of room for the two of us. The cabin was very clean and our cabin steward Victor was very attentive. The bathroom was cleaned twice a day as was the cabin. We always had fresh towels and ice in the ice bucket. Our bed was More very comfortable making me wonder if the mattress was new. The bathroom was on the small side but we managed. Can't say enough about Victor and his smiling friendly face.
Dining: We ate at the Four Seasons dining room mostly. It was near our cabin. We never had to wait for a table and the service was great. The choices on the menu were good and the food always arrived hot. We ate in the main dining room, Seven Seas, twice. Again, the menu was the same as Four Seasons and the service was just as good. One night we ate at Moderno. The atmosphere was very nice. The service was great as was the food. We are not big meat eaters so I don't think we got our monies worth. But if you are a big meat eater this is the place for you! The two buffets were our place of choice for breakfast every day. There was a variety of things to choose from and the fresh made omelets were really good. Entertainment: The shows on board were entertaining. We played several games of trivia with the cruise directors staff along with some karaoke. The cruise director and her staff were a lot of fun. There was plenty to do if you were looking for something. We had a nice stroll around the deck late every night before bed.
Milka set up a really nice meet and greet for those of us who are cruise critic members. Several staff members were there to visit with us and answer any questions we had.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay on the Sun. We hope to sail on her again in the future. Less
Cabin review: OE5209 Oceanview Picture Window
Cabin sleeps 3 so it seemed a little small to us. The bathroom was small and the shower was really small. It is round with a shower curtain. The room itself would have been better if there had not been a bunk bed in it.Read All Oceanview Picture Window (OE) Reviews >>
