Not our favorite but Norwegian is still our Go to
"Being a smaller ship, the bigger ships had priority on the convenient piers so we had to ride shuttles to town eating up more of the limited time available.We cruised the bay to see several glaciers and then on the way out stopped the ship to sit next to one for a few hours...."Read More

Review for a South America Cruise on Norwegian Sun

Mike00123
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I’ve cruised with NCL several times in the past, most often with Celebrity so I have some recent experience to base my review. Overall, Cebebrity outperforms NCL. The cruise was good overall but a few details left us disappointed. Most foremost was the food. It just fell flat, both in the dining room and buffet. Normally we don’t choose premium dining because we are fairly satisfied with the ...

Panama Canal and south America

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Sun

StuartP
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise because of the canal transit and the South American itinerary. A week or so out there was a change to the itinerary, dropping the first stop in Colombia (Santa Marta), changing Panama City to Colón, and adding an extra day in Lima. I haven't seen an explanation for the change, and while the extra day in Lima instead of Santa Marta was a decent trade, Colón for Panama City ...

A SHIP TO AVOID

Review for a South America Cruise on Norwegian Sun

Radford007
10+ Cruises • Age 80s

The crew were excellent. Most of the entertainment in the theatre were your dancers and singers Most cruise lines are reducing the levels of service and amenities provided. NCL has taken this to the extreme. There are no toiletries; no bath gowns; no chocolate on the pillow at turn-down. In fact they have no turn-down service at all. Dirty towels remain on the floor until the next day (often the ...

Review for a South America Cruise on Norwegian Sun

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This was the second time we'd sailed on the Norwegian Sun but we enjoyed the first time more and noticed some subtle changes which had made the cruise more expensive. We like the ship because it is smaller with 2,000 guests. The State Rooms, the Dining, the Bars and the Entertainment were all excellent. The Service in some departments however left plenty of room to improve particularly around ...

Norwegian Sun 17 Night Panama Canal and South America

Review for a South America Cruise on Norwegian Sun

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this trip because of the ship and the itinerary. We prefer the small ships because they have a more personal and intimate feel to them compared to the big ships like the Bliss, Epic, Encore etc. The entire cruise experience was great. We had a balcony stateroom and it was very spacious and comfortable. Yes, the ship is older so the room does show some wear and tear but it was very ...

Norwegian Sun Not a Sunny Cruise

Review for a Bermuda Cruise on Norwegian Sun

Rasheen Abdul
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This cruise was convenient as it departed out of Baltimore with a 12-day itinerary over the Christmas and New Years Holidays. The food often lacked flavor, served at less-than-optimal temperature (hot cereals served cool). The specialty restaurant was regrettable as the restaurant had no record of our pre-paid dinner reservation even when I produced the pre-booking receipt. The Moderna ...

Nightmare From Bad to Worse

Review for a Bermuda Cruise on Norwegian Sun

Yellowlily
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

My family and I chose this cruise for the fantastic itinerary, lots of great islands that we already love and few we have not been to yet. We love the Caribbean and always have enjoyed going to St. Maarten and St. Thomas and beautiful St. John's, Antigua. We had never been to St. Kitts/Nevis nor the Tortola, British Virgin Islands. The excursions the ship had to offer looked great and we were ...

Mediocre

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Norwegian Sun

18karat
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Chose this cruise due to its departure port of Baltimore so no flying involved and decent price. Stateroom was fine, a bit dated. Linens need to be replaced as our comforter cover was ripped at the top edge. Towels a bit sandpapery. We ate most meals in the dining rooms. Eggs never quite done, fried potatoes cold and tasteless, beef and chicken extremely tough (including steak in specialty ...
