Norwegian Sun Cruise Review by mila k

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2017
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Although an old ship, very well designed. Jogging/walking track is on deck 6. This is much bigger than new ships. Chairs out of the way and no smokers on this level. We loved this and walked/jogged multiple times/day. Also ship is great for non-smokers -- designated smoking areas worked well to keep smoke away from non-smokers except for casino smoke, which made its way to some common areas (but much better than other ships we've been on). Service was exceptional and we felt like VIPs. Our server's name is Mary and she was the best we've ever had on any cruise line. We dined at main restaurant for lunch and dinner. Past cruises we ate at the buffet. The reason for a 4 not a 5 is the quality and selection of buffet compared to other NCL past cruises. Salad buffet was very limited (no mixed greens, no spinach, sometimes no tomatoes, etc). The rest was fantastic and the great choices and service at main dining made up for the buffet. Entertainment was great.

One group Amber Strings (from Poland) performed at orchestra/concert level every time. They were wonderful. Ports and shore excursions were great. We did 3 excursions and explored the other ports by ourselves. Tours were worth the high prices. We would cruise this ship again.

Cabin Review

Cabin BC 0002

10th level at the very front. great cabin and perfect for the panama canal. cabin sofa visibly old (and didn't look like it was replaced last time the ship was refurbished). cabin designed well with lots of storage. bathroom small as expected. would book the same cabin again.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


loved this stop. had plenty of time to taxi into main part of city. visited St. Francis monestary. highly recommend this! used Uber to get back to port. worked very well.

Cartagena (Colombia)

loved this stop. we shared a cab to town (total price $10). you have to negotiate upfront. old city was fantastic. we visited one museum and a few churches. walked around old city and outside old city.
