The Good: The Sun's layout - we never felt cramped The Itinerary - Falklands and Ushuaia were our highlights Fast Embarkation for late arrival (4:00pm) and easy disembarkation 7-Seas Main Dining - The setting and views were great and we never had to wait The non-NCL Entertainment was very good Jaime, organizer of fun stuff, was very caring Peter, the destination expert, was informative and helpful Good tendering especially given the challenging conditions The Bad: Service was generally ok but forced / obligatory Specialty dining - the food was better but not worth the extra $s The Sun's production cast shows were really terrible NCL tries every trick in the book to get money out of you The way the OBC's work (or better said, don't work) Odd port hours - 7:00-2:00, really! Room Service did not show up with breakfast 4 times! The Captain made the call to skip Cape Horn which was very disappointing, but hard to second guess.

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: January 2016
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Balcony
The Good:

The Sun's layout - we never felt cramped

The Itinerary - Falklands and Ushuaia were our highlights

Fast Embarkation for late arrival (4:00pm) and easy disembarkation

7-Seas Main Dining - The setting and views were great and we never had to wait

The non-NCL Entertainment was very good

Jaime, organizer of fun stuff, was very caring

Peter, the destination expert, was informative and helpful

Good tendering especially given the challenging conditions

The Bad:

Service was generally ok but forced / obligatory

Specialty dining - the food was better but not worth the extra $s

The Sun's production cast shows were really terrible

NCL tries every trick in the book to get money out of you

The way the OBC's work (or better said, don't work)

Odd port hours - 7:00-2:00, really!

Room Service did not show up with breakfast 4 times!

The Captain made the call to skip Cape Horn which was very disappointing, but hard to second guess.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BC 1202
Great cabin with a big forward balcony in a great location. The bed and furnishings show signs of age but 1202 is a exceptional cabin. We also had an inside cabin (0303) for our son, which was also great and big! We did not like the soap and shampoo in the dispensers. Bar soap was given when asked for but there was also no hair conditioner or lotion.
