Norwegian Sun Cruise Review by troter12

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

Panama cruise was great once we got on the ship, took two hours to get there. Had a balcony cabin with all new furniture and tv Everything worked extremely well during the entire cruise. Perhaps because it was an older ship the state room was surprisingly large compared to the Gem and Dawn we have sailed on before. Service was excellent from our room attendant Mathias D to the bartenders and wait staff.

Entertainment was the best we have seen especially the comedians the first part of the cruise. Perhaps they went all out considering some of the negative reviews I had seen about previous cruises.

The highlight excursion was the Chivas party bus in Columbia Three piece band on board, the rum flowed and the dancing and energy of the guide was amasing as well as information as we did up the city .

Food ok ; Best in the specialty restaurants.

We loved the pool area especially the smaller deep pool (7 ft all around) as it was less crowded and we could swim easily in this salt water pool

The new furniture through out the ship was great especially the well spaced comfy seats in the theatre

Perhaps being an older smaller ship it didn't have as many public bathrooms or modern features like water slides etc but we loved the fewer people . I think we recognized or had talked to everyone on board by the end of 18 days.

Other than the two hours getting on and off the ship at embark and debarkation we loved the cruise and would take the Sun again.

5th Norwegian cruise and 8th overall

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

San Francisco

A little disappointed in San Francisco. So crowded and no yards. Not what we had expected

Tarcoles River

Interesting, Saw a few crocs and a lot of bird varieties. Tour guide was great. Got rained on in the rain forest, guess we could expect that.

Spent part of the day at the beach and part at the pool. A nice relaxing day which was what we wanted

AS I wrote in the review. Most fun ever on an excursion
