Norwegian Sun Cruise Review by Loubudman

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2018
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview Picture Window

The crew was excellent but the ship was in poor condition. Windows were all dirty and not washed once during 18 day cruise. Lighting throughout the ship was out in a lot of places. Food was sub par for Norwegian. Just an overall disappointment. Ship was dirty in many areas. Maintenance was chipping and painting in areas above our head during cruise. Walkers and joggers were just above our room and noise was a bit distracting. Shower in handicap room allows water all over floor which becomes quite slippery. There was no hot water in the cabin when we first boarded. There was cold water but if you turned it all the way to hot there was no water at all. Some valve was off somewhere.

The crew was awesome despite the conditions of the ship. Entertainment was fantastic except for the Motown act.

Ability to take pictures was somewhat difficult at times because of the crowd.

Some shore excursions were cheesy so be careful in your choice.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Very confusing terminal if you never been there. Transport drops you at curb of busy street and there is no one directing you where to enter or go.

Craigdarroch Castle

Was a fantastic tour. Beautiful city and the castle was not only beautiful, but interesting as well.
