The ship was very clean and I appreciate the crew manning the buffets to spray every single person's hands with sanitizer. People are gross and I'm positive the majority of them had no intention of washing their hands before handling serving utensils that a thousand other people would need to use too. There were even hand washing stations in the buffet areas and I never witnessed anyone, other than myself, using them. Our stateroom was nice and the stateroom steward (if that's the right title) was very friendly. I don't recall his name, but he was great. In fact, everyone on the staff were very, very friendly and would go above and beyond to help wherever needed. The only con for the ship was the lack of an adult only area. We've been on other cruises that have an entire section with a separate buffet and pool deck for adults only. No screeching, whiny kids putting their snot covered hands on everything. Not a fan of kids when there's no space to escape them. Read Less

We planned to have a family Thanksgiving on this cruise, we were terribly disappointed with the servers at dinner and the overall staff - very unfriendly. We had to wait at least 45 minutes before our orders were taken each evening at dinner and dinner generally took 2 hours to complete due to the wait for our food and servers. They were not friendly and one evening at dinner in the Four Seasons dining room, they were incompetent. We had two specialty dinners - one at the Italian restaurant which was terrible. Food was not tasty and the wait, once again, took over 2 hrs. We had reservations, but it took them over an hour to get us seated and take drink orders. We were disappointed in the shows - the comedian, Julie Barr, was good, but nothing else was interesting. The ship was very clean and they did continually keep it that way. Our steward was friendly, but did not do anything special besides make the bed and keep us with fresh towels. Usually on a cruise, we would enjoy getting to know our steward and dinner staff - the steward did not do anything with towels (making cute animals, etc) - this may seem not necessary, but it would always give us a smile! We had the beverage package and it did not include bottle water - this was such a disappointment since bottle water was $6.00! I cannot recommend this cruise for anyone Read Less

Me, my 2 teens, my GF and her 2 teens went on cruise over Thanksgiving. Service and staff were great. Very friendly and helpful. We had an interior and GF and her kids had mini suite. I was a little nervous at first glance of the interior bc it was 2 twin beds and a couch but there was not enough room to pull out the couch. I thought there was a mix up. On our booking page on NCL website it had a stock photo of the interior room and it said sleeps 3/4 and looked like it had one of those pull down beds. I asked the room steward and he said he would get 3rd bed made up in the evening. He basically took the cushions off the couch and added some bedding. It wasn't bad but the room was just too small. I thought the food in the MDRs was really really good. I am a picky eater and there were always a couple apps and a couple entrees I wanted to order. Breakfast in the MDR is 100X better than the buffet. I wasn't disappointed in any of the meals in the MDRs. I thought the MDR food was much better than the last few Carnival cruises I have been on. The buffet on the Sun is a bit blah and is very crowded. I did find some Asian dishes on the buffet that were decent. Tip - upon boarding don't let them steer you to the outside buffet at the back of the ship, This just had hamburgers and hot dogs and some other lame items. The indoor buffet is much better. Also, I was astounded how many people opted for the craziness of the buffet vs going to sit down MDR. The MDR were never crowded but we ate fairly early - between 6-7. Alcohol is very expensive. The ultimate beverage package is like $95/day (before tips I think). I didn't get it and opted for the self-assist rum runner package (lol) which lasted most of the cruise. I did get a classic margarita (maybe 8 Oz) and it was $15. Only big gripe relates to the sports bar. I am a big college football fan. Me an my son went there on Friday after Thanksgiving to watch college football. It was late afternoon and they were not serving food. The ship only gets ONE sports channel. They showed the Turkish basketball league on all 10+ TVs in the sports bar. The next day (Saturday)was even bigger day for college football. They had European soccer on. I asked someone and he said they only show NFL games. Fortunately we were in port and found a Hooters in Cozumel to watch the big game. Overall it is a nice ship, nothing fancy, but nice. Again the food in the MDR was really good. I didn't have any problems aside from being charged for a couple sodas at dinner while having the soda package but they cleared those off no problem. I would do this cruise again but get a balcony room. Read Less
