Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2020
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony

I chose this cruise because it was going to Key West & Cozumel, 2 places I wanted to revisit and leaving out of Canaveral meant I did not have the additional drive to Miami.

We are platinum with NCL so we know what to expect

Ship: Small which is OK but it is laid out very poorly, you have to go thru too many places to get where you are going

Cabin: we had a handicapped accessible room ( I use a wheelchair) Room layout was fine, Bathroom layout was fine. But there were a lot of issues, the toilet would not flush after about an hour of being in the room( it was fixed right away). The shower flooded all the way into the cabin ( they tried to fix it multiple times) it was never fixed. The air conditioner did not work, after they said they fixed it 3 times, until we waited in the room for the repair guy it was finally fixed , 3 days later.

Dining: the food in the main dining rooms was good. The buffet is the worst I have seen on a ship. I know this was a smaller ship but the items in the buffet just mirrored on the other side. Poor selection, and some items were there for days. We tried the Sports bar for a change and that was awful. I ordered chicken tenders and my wife ordered a panini , the tenders were limp and rubbery, like someone microwaved a frozen piece of chicken, the panini was on a sub roll with a couple of grill marks on it and what was in it was inedible. We are not food snobs but this was bad

Entertainment: saw the Rock and Roll show it was OK, the couple they had singing Country one night in the Bliss were really bad

Service: as usual the NCL staff were great, but the room attendant was not so good, I don't think he actually cleaned the room at all, just took out the trash and gave us towels

Key West : highlight of our trip, had a good time there

Cozumel: too many people hassling you to buy there stuff

Getting on & off he ship was fine, actually getting of was the best we have ever had , was in the car by 7:45

Would I go on the Sun Again, NEVER

will I go on NCL again, yes , just has to be the right ship and go someplace new
