  3. Norwegian Sun
Our daughter, her husband, and our 2 grandchildren were touring South America, and the San Antonio, Chile to Buenos Aires, Argentina cruise allowed us to spend 2 weeks with them. By arriving in Chile a day before our cruise allowed us to climatize and have a relaxed embarkation. The embarkation was well organized and trouble free. The Norwegian Sun is a wonderful ship and layed out well. The amenities, dining, cabins, entertainment, activities, and services were excellent. This ship carries 1900 passengers and did not feel crowded. The staff were friendly, professional, helpful, and well turned out. We especially appreciated the cleanliness program to help ensure no on board sickness. We also appreciated the kids program which allowed them to have some time to themselves. The weather was good, but varied from hot & muggy to cool & very windy. All types of clothing was required if a person wanted to venture outdoors or an an excursion. At one point in the South Pacific Ocean we encountered a strong storm that was worsening. The bridge crew after considering the situation, decided to change our itinerary slightly and headed at top speed for the safety of the Magellan Strait. At no time did we feel unsafe. We would consider another cruise with Norwegian and recommend this particular cruise.

Wonderful first cruise

Cabin Review

Aft-Facing Balcony
Cabin B1 8278
Our cabin was a purchased upgrade from our original booking. The room was relaxing and well appointed. We had a third person in our room and initially there was some difficulty with the pull out bed. The on board staff quickly repaired the situation and provided a cot while repairs were made - 1 day. The pull out bed was not as comfortable as the king size bed and there was no privacy curtain for the third person in our room. The pull out bed when open, blocked access to the balcony. The balcony only had 2 chairs though there were 3 adults occupying the cabin. Our room steward was very friendly & helpful. He did a great job in making our on board experience wonderful.
