Norwegian Sun Cruise Review by haniak

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We have cruised extensively and had not been on a NCL cruise for 38 years. We were pleasantly surprised by the ship. The ship had been recently renovated and was beautiful. The specialty restaurants were very good and the four seasons dinning room was our go to for dinner. This restaurant. was made special by the excellent staff every evening(esp. Donna from St. Lucia). The common areas were well appointed and the shows each evening were excellent.The show band and all the fantastic young performers put on one outstanding show each night they performed. The only complaint was the smoke from the casino. You could not be in the casino in the evening due to the smoke but also in the morning often there was the smell of smoke outside the Bliss lounge. We thought that the bar rates for what was discribed as premium liquior were ridiculously over-priced. A whole bottle of Grey Goose is $45.00 on board and one drink was $24.00. We have traveled on both Oceania and Regent and not come across these kinds of prices. The entire staff on the Sun were fabulous, they were so helpful, friendly and courteous. We would definitely consider NCL again in the future. We only used the ships excursions once but it was way above average and a great day. The ship came across a small storm and the captain handled the whole affair with no difficulty. The stabilizers worked well in 22 meter waves, you hardly felt the ship rock. The cruise was around South America, we sailed from Santiago, Chile to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

We went by 4x4's to Joe Kelly's farm. The penguins were up close and personal. Had a fabulous day well worth the price.
