These cruise review I’ll do it differently, instead of going port by port I’ll do it by points. The Ship: Being in other NCL ships but never in the GEM, I can say I really liked the ship, small and friendly, easy to get ... Read more

Critic This cruise has been a punishment on our sense of smell. First is the long walk to our cabin which gives us a variety of scents. The mid-ship portion has a nice flowery smell of an air freshener and then we hit the forward ... Read more

This was my 2nd sailing on the NCL Sun. The last was 8 years ago in balcony 9235 and this time just a few doors down in 9244. Surprisingly, the ship is still in pretty good shape. While it does show some age here and there, it's well ... Read more

Very good cruise. We had cruised on the Breakaway in 2013, and were interested to see what we thought of the smaller ship. Honestly don't have a preference. Food was great, service was great, entertainment was great. Ship was in great ... Read more

A brief background on this cruise is in order before commencing the review. The NCL Sun was originally scheduled for a two week drydock in San Francisco. For reasons known only to NCL, that drydock was shortened to one week. This led to ... Read more

Travel for relaxation was the main reason for this particular cruise. MISSON ACCOMPLISHED! The ship is smallish and very easy to navigate. We had a balcony room on the 10 deck which was perfect. Large enough for 2 people to easily ... Read more
