Norwegian Sun Cruise Review by calm12
- Sail Date: March 2016
- Destination: South America
- Cabin Type: Inside
The sewage problem was severe on the ship. I was in an inside cabin by myself. The smell was awful!!! The cabin had old ratty carpet and uncomfortable mattresses on the bed. At one point I saw sewage water come up out of the shower drain. The ship is scheduled for remodeling, but not until 2018!
My cabin stewardess was absolutely wonderful. We got to know each other during the 32 days I was on the ship. I speak Spanish fluently so I was not dependent upon the ship's tours.
This trip ended up costing a lot! $1500 extra in port charges. $700 extra in the mandatory gratuities. I imagine the cruise line uses those funds to pay the staff. I asked my stewardess if they saw any of the funds and she told me "no". I tipped her well before I left. She was wonderful!
I don't think I'll cruise NCL ever again.

LimaA couple of my fellow passengers and I grabbed a taxi and went in search of alpaca yarn. We finally found a warehouse for a fair trade company. And the taxi driver found a local fish restaurant that was economical and good. I invited him to lunch with us.View All 94 Lima Cruise Port Reviews

Puerto Quetzal (Antigua)I didn't take a tour here either. I had wanted to return to Lake Atitlan, but there was no way to get there. The ship's tours were set up for cruise passengers to go shopping. So I went to the shops at the port, bought some lovely things, then sat in a cafe drinking soda and talking with the guys who ran the place.View All 311 Puerto Quetzal (Antigua) Cruise Port Reviews
