  3. Norwegian Sun
Apparently, being from the Northeast, I was unaware of a delightful thing known as a “swarm of love bugs”. They were positively everywhere. Inside, outside, in staterooms and dining rooms. Some even survived for several days. Needless to say, the first day was shockingly bad. I am not sure what could have been done differently, but this was outrageously bad. Key West is a lovely place. Many things to do and see. This ship has a bizarre policy requiring tender tickets for a walk off port?!? Luckily we had an excursion and did not have to deal with that. This port stop was far too short. Havana is the opposite of Key West. It was Dirty, smelly, and had wild dogs inside the port! Water in the harbor is very dark due to pollution. Cobblestone courtyard across the street had brown, fetid liquid in between each stone. We took a tour in an antique auto, the driver could not speak English, but he was polite. The ship was in port overnight, it was such a waste. Food in the buffet was “different”, the themes (Asian, Latin) were attempted but they did not succeed. The basics offered late night in the great outdoors were excellent. Sports bar did not show playoff games- very odd things were on instead. Comedian (Jeff Nease) was the highlight of the trip, both shows were extraordinary. Win a cruise bingo was in the Bliss lounge, (far too small) and at the same time as the Latitudes party. Room steward was excellent, he made towel animals every night! He worked very hard to clean up after the bug situation. The ship had a Cuba shop that allowed for purchase of souvenirs. Disembarkation was swift and efficient.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BX 8372
Old ship, balcony door required repair during our trip. Bathroom sink made a “bubbling” noise while in port.
Once the bugs died off and were swept away, the balcony was very large.
