Norwegian Sun Cruise Review by waltonflwonder
- Sail Date: November 2012
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony
Had not been to 4 of 5 ports, which was major reason for booking. Booked the "3 specialty restaurants" deal. Italian was OK for me (wife did NOT like!); French was very good; & the Steak was Great, as usual!
Took several excursions....if u don't like street vendors, beggars, etc., DO NOT get off the ship in Cartagena! They are everywhere! Had good to great times there anyway....same in Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten, & St. Thomas.
Crew not quite as good as March trip (new Captain...only saw at the Latitudes "stuff," unlike previous Capt, who we saw every day!) Saw ALL top Officers EVERY day, which is exceptional...none were afraid to pick up stuff on the floor, bus tables, etc. Great bar waiters & restaurant staff. Room steward was fantastic, but couldn't control the water on balcony....couldn't use 75% of the time on an 11 day trip! He used a squegee constantly, but a stuck drain somewhere behind us would just load it back up again....might as well had an inside or oceanview!

Island Tourdid the See & Sea tour (not listed above???) good tour w/a good guide. guess only comment would be that the semi-sub should NOT be recommended for LARGE people or anyone w/any type of claustrophobia!View All 169 Island Tour Reviews
Cartagena (Colombia)Picked up & dropped off right at Ship....great venues....street vendors were only problem & she dealt w/them!View All 587 Cartagena (Colombia) Cruise Port Reviews

Trolley TourGreat, quick tour, w/a great guide! lots of info & opportunities for pic's etc. Our main idea here (after 2 ea 4+ hour tours the first 2 stops) was something interesting & quick.View All 23 Trolley Tour Reviews

St. ThomasLots of places closed on arrival. Wife loved "Mr Tablecloth" downtown (Kathryn Green - Mgr - Wonderful!) One suggestion: have better "info" re: open taxi's to downtown....we boarded TWO such taxi's that turned out to be people waiting for excursions!!! No signs, etc. Embarassed my wife! (but not me!) Very hot! $12/per person too expensive for the Butterfly place (which I wanted to see!)...plus no photo's except those that u have to pay for!View All 4,106 St. Thomas Cruise Port Reviews
