  3. Norwegian Sun
The ship is clean and the entertainment very good indeed. Excursions are vastly overpriced. (And not very good at any price). The deal breaker is the food. The "included", or as Norwegian likes to describe it "complimentary" (what is complimentary about something you have pre-paid?) dining rooms are OK because the food was well served and presented, but was quite unacceptable as far as taste was concerned. For example, all meat dishes were served with a horrible glutinous gravy. Even when the main course was good (I had a marvellous prime rib) this gravy completely spoiled the eating experience. Of course, the dish was served cold, as was pretty much everything. Few vegetables. The buffet was poorly laid out, and the foodstuffs inferior. The first day selection (no decent cold cuts or cheese) never changed. Awful.

Good features, but overall not up to standard
