Excellent itinerary on the NCL Sun. Small ship for 14 days, but the itinerary is awesome. We did two days in Buenos Aires before the cruise (must do the hop on hop off bus) and then did two days in Santiago after the cruise. This is a long vacation but do worth it. Ushuaia is awesome little town at the end of the world. Falkland Islands was fun. We did the 4x4 penguin tour which was ...

Booked this cruise as a means to achieving a long held curiosity to see South America. By sailing this cruise from Buenos Aires to Santiago and following that up with the Santiago to Miami leg we were able to see a great deal if not the full monty. Not much space to do justice to 30great days but I’ll try! The Sun is a small ship and did suffer because of this at times on the first leg on sea ...

Great ports, especially the Falkland Islands. Puerto Madryn was not a good shore excursion because we drove for about 2 hours and saw about 20 seals from a cliff about 200 feet up, then about 20 penguins at a different spot from about 50 yards and at the last stop, about 10 elephant seals (all male) from about 100 yards. 15 minutes at each stop! Big mix up with our shore excursion billing which ...

Chose this cruise, to take advantage of an extra 15% discount, being afforded to us, due to a cancelled cruise. Frankly I have read some snobby reviews, about this ship, it's staff, and the food. My wife and I were well pleased with all of the above. We were surprised to learn, that this was a complimentary beverage sailing. We are not big drinkers, but got our money's worth from that perk. We ...

You get a "solid" experience for what you pay, but don't expect "5-star" quality

Chose this ship because of the pricing and its itinerary(both what we all wanted.) Went to Buenos Aires for 4 days ahead and toured city on our own. Highly recommend doing that. Transfer to ship on Feb 2 was easy and well organized by Ship. Just need a private taxi organized by your hotel. No need for NCL to do that. Food: I liken this experience to going to perhaps a favorite restaurant of ...

This trip had always been on my bucket list. We flew to Buenos Aires and explored the city for two days. BA has been called the Paris of the South. It is a beautiful and elegant city. We were impressed by the Norwegian Sun's renovations. The ship looked beautiful, clean and brand new. Our first stop was beautiful Montevideo, Uruguay, a historical lovely city. Our second stop was Punta del Este, ...

A Suite life on the Sun

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We were very excited to be on this 14 night Buenos Aires to Santiago (via Cape Horn) sailing, and particularly pleased when our upgrade bid moved us from a Mini-Suite to a Forward Facing Penthouse with Balcony (SH). As there is lots of good information about this amazing itinerary, I will focus on the experience of being a suite guest. As NCL embarkation was actually on the ship (because of ...

I have benefited immensely by the reviews posted on Cruise Critic, but have never taken the time to write one myself. For many years, the message boards have proved invaluable for planning our excursions. I can’t thank Cruise Critic enough. It is my hope that readers will find this helpful. Warning- very detailed. We booked balcony cabin #8221. I appreciate the connections on the CC message ...

The ship is very clean and livable. We enjoyed the regular dining room which had very good food. The only exception was the lack of lamb chops, lobster or crab which you had to get in the specialty dining restaurants for extra money. I also sorely missed having any salmon for breakfast. The protein for breakfast was eggs plus unhealthy bacon, sausages, etc. Service was exceptional, ...
