This was our first time cruising so we really had no idea what to expect. We chose NCL because they offered the Denali land tour. We chose to park at SEATAC and take a shuttle to Vancouver. i will try to break my review into sections: ... Read more

As this was our first cruise, I did some research and had some concern; hidden charges, draconian rules that some lines impose, and being swamped with thousands of people on the ship and ashore None of these turned out to be a problem on ... Read more

We have always wanted to see Alaska and this was a great way to do it. We had great weather, better than even we had hoped for, so it did add to the experience. This is 5th cruise and 3rd on NCL. We had a balcony, cannot imagine this ... Read more

Long story short, while I had fun on this cruise, the lack of enjoyable activities on the ship and constant presence of sales pitches makes me feel no desire to ever book with NCL again. Cabin: Nice. Small room, but organized well ... Read more

My husband and I live in NW Washington and try to cruise to Alaska if we can swing it every summer, usually in early June. I booked this cruise on the Sun over 1.5 years out because we wanted to try an aft balcony, and I think we are now ... Read more

Love Alaska cruising. Convenient departure from Vancouver. Bright clean ship (although some threadbare carpet) with friendly, happy staff. Food was as good as on any of the 20 ships be have sailed, but the entertainment was abysmal. No ... Read more

We are one of those lucky one who have been cruising since 2003, 10+ more weeks visits of Alaskan ports, 5 weeks on Norwegian Sun. Now you know why we were not excited about this trip. Cruising is about having a good time meeting ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have never been to Alaska and this cruise offered additional stops in British Columbia at Prince Ruprt and Nanaimo. There were 8 ports of call so we knew we would have the opportunity to see a lot. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the opportunity to see San Francisco and Vancouver with extra days of travel at both ends of an Alaskan cruise and were not disappointed. The Sun is a beautiful yet small ship with a great crew and staff. As ... Read more

Alaska was a lifelong dream. The ports were good; weather unpredictable (it was, after all, Alaska in May). Icy Strait Point was our favorite! Not touristy and saw dozens of whales. We loved Skagway and Sitka. Our ship was another ... Read more

The NCL Sun is fighting the aging of the seas quite well. Public areas are kept up to high standards, though some might consider them dated. Cabins, quite the opposite. The dating shows, and only major remodeling will fix some of the ... Read more

Had been to Alaska before (Princess) and wanted to go again. Booked this cruise on Norwegian because it was longer then Princess and less expensive. Now I know why its less expensive, because you get less. It starts with boarding in San ... Read more

This was a 14 day NCL cruise to Alaska. The Norwegian Sun is one of the smallest NCL ships and I really enjoyed not being so overwhelmed by crowds both on and off the ship. The Sun visited several ports I'd not visited on my two previous ... Read more

We joined the ship at San Francisco for the Alaska cruise and in spite of having an arrival at the pier time we had to queue for about forty five minutes outside the terminal. Being a hot day I was not too happy about this. Once inside the ... Read more

The crew is very professional and accommodating. A few of the ship's interior spaces have recently been updated but the overwhelming majority of restaurants and bars are very worn and are in much need of modernization. While much of ... Read more

We thought the value was good for a 20 day cruise and haven't been to some of the ports in Chile, Peru, etc. The itinerary was great. Ending in San Francisco was a real treat for us to explore wine country. The balcony cabin was nice ... Read more
