This was the Norwegian Sun's first cruise from Port Canaveral. The way the ship was managed at each port of call made it seem like it was their first cruise anywhere. We were late getting to and leaving every port. Freestyle cruising was more like their style cruising. We were over 2 hours late departing, the first port of call went relatively smoothly. We were surprised to find approximately 1/4 of the passengers were gay men(most of whom were fine and fun) but found ourselves constantly running into inappropriately clad men throughout the ship in the evening. Granted they hosted private parties and closed off parts of the ship, but that made those parts of the ship unavailable to other passengers and they had to get to and from their parties.

This was not a great family atmosphere and I felt bad for folks with small children, honeymooners, etc.

Second port of call, Guatemala there were many problems with excursions, St Tomas DE Castillo itself is not a destination I'll return to, and they didn't really appear to understand how to handle a cruise ship.
