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

Apart from my poor cabin choice, we really enjoyed our first NCL cruise to Alaska. We enjoyed the MDR, Le Bistro, Cagney's and La Cucina. I wouldn't have been disappointed if I only had to eat in the MDR, though the menu was a bit ... Read more

We chose the NCL Sun as we've done many NCL cruises in the past and like the Freestyle options, especially since it was just two of us on this cruise. We did Alaska because we've never been there and it was Zika free. The Boat: I ... Read more
