NCL Sun Review September 29 – October 4 2014 and Blues Cruise October 4 – 11th

We arrived in Vancouver a couple of days before the cruise and stayed at the Westin Bayshore. It was close to the cruise port with easy access to Stanley Park and amenities. It was raining on embarkation day, but at the port we entered a covered parking area, so we were not out in the elements at all.

I wondered why NCL mentioned in the documents to arrive at noon for a 4pm departure. We had to clear US Customs at the cruise port, which can take a couple of hours. It only took a short while, thank goodness. We then breezed through security. Within a short time we were on board the Sun.

Cabin Review


Cabin BC

We had cabin 0007 verandah BC cabin on the 5 day cruise, and 0056 verandah BC cabin on the 7 day cruise. Both were in excellent locations, just a few steps from the stairs. Very close to everything on deck 11. The cabins were quiet, clean and well organized. Great cabin stewards both times.I would recommend getting cabins closer to the stairs and elevators either forward or aft. There are no mid ship stairs.
