Sail Date: Apr 2018
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

We always wanted to cruise thru the Panama Canal. This cruise offered a great list of ports plus the canal. The Norwegian Sun had received terrible press before our cruise due to a previous cruise construction activities getting ready for a retro fit. The ship was in good condition when we boarded it in Seattle. There were still areas in need of work but overall the retro fit made the ship very presentable. The food on board in the Garden Cafe was average. The Speciality eating choices were very good. As a general rule the staff was friendly except for a few individuals. Overall this was an enjoyable trip. Our cabin steward was very attentive and made our cabin a pleasant retreat when we need a place to retire to. The ports of Cabo San Lucas , Acapulco and Cartagena were less than pleasant stops with vendors constantly hassling us to buy something we did not need. The carriage ride in Columbia was good except for the constant hassling by vendors.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Cabin BB

Very nice cabin in a great ship location. The balcony floor had been refurbished but the sides and door were in poor shape, Half way thru the cruise the sides were painted and looked nice. The door is missing hardware and showed much wear. The cabin was very nice and we had plenty of space, The tv channel choices were very limited.
