Norwegian Sun Cruise Review by goderda
- Sail Date: January 2017
- Destination: South America
- Cabin Type: Oceanview Picture Window
Embarkation was ok. It took a while to get through the process. The first Norwegian cruise we went on we got there right when they opened and had to hang out for a few hours to be able to get into our cabin. This time we arrived about 2 pm for a 5 pm deadline and it worked better. Disembarkation was ok. The problem wasn't with Norwegian, but with Buenos Aires. Their process resulted in long lines. Once you got through the process the taxi line had at least 100 people in it. It took us 30-45 minutes to get a taxi and it cost 400 pesos (about $24) for a 1.5 mile trip. We later paid about 100 pesos on the meter for the same distance.
The service was great. Our cabin attendant wasn't as good as others on the ship, judging from their experience, but she was adequate. The restaurant service was excellent. Since we spent a lot of time in the Specialty Restaurants we got to know some of them quite well. Grace, the Maitre De was very friendly and was excellent. The food in all of the areas was good to excellent.
I found most of the excursions to be good, although they were very expensive.
I thought that the entertainment was generally good, for what you would expect on a cruise ship. There was live music in many of the lounges including folk, rock, classical, etc. which made it very nice. Some of the shows were good, some not so good.
Overall I think this was a great experience. I would recommend this cruise and Norwegian.

Britannia House/Falkland Islands MuseumVery interesting. The museum was fascinating and did a good job, although from the British perspective of the Falklands War. There were 60+ mph winds when were going back which ended up in about an hour wait for a launch and a very rough ride and a heroic experience of off loading onto the ship.View All 1 Britannia House/Falkland Islands Museum Reviews
