Horrible Experience

Review for Norwegian Sun to Cuba

Let me preface this review by stating that we have taken many cruises, on Princess as well as Carnival and have never had an unpleasant experience, until now, on Norwegian. When we choose to spend our hard-earned money on a cruise vacation, that price includes not only the monetary cost of the trip, but the use of valuable vacation days as well as the travel costs incurred to arrive at the ...

I chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary; two nights in Havana. The embarkation process is one thing that NCL has down pat. We got to the pier early, breezed through the check-in and were seated in the waiting area. Once our group number was called, we boarded and went to the pool deck for a couple beers. They had a big ice bin filled with several different kinds of beer; as we all ...

Our 21st cruise, 3rd on NCL. Terrible Service.

This was our 21st cruise, so we are not novices. We also aren't overly demanding and understand that things won't always go as smoothly as we would like. We chose this cruise for the itinerary...5 nts with 36 hours in Havana. This was our 3rd NCL cruise, but the last had been over 10 years ago. We had heard that the NCL experience had declined significantly, but were shocked at the extremely ...

We chose this cruise as it was very reasonably priced and it was our first time with Norwegian.. Embarking was quiet an experience with the staff shoreside being quiet short and abrupt if you had a question to ask. Once onboard we went straight to the outside restaurant on deck 11 for a snack and drink, the bar staff seemed very rushed and a tad rude, probably due to the amount of people ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Diagnosed with Leukemia so figured I should check off some bucket list items quickly, always wanted to see Cuba, the Bahamas and Miami and figured this would knock out them in one shot. That being said, Cuba was beautiful but could've used more time there. Miami was nice, a lot to see and do. The Bahamas, well, not so great. Come to find out it was owned by Norwegian and like the cruise ...

We chose this cruise because it visited Havana, and it was short. We had never been on a Norwegian cruise before, but after reading the reviews, we were sort of dreading it! It seemed that this was going to be a bare-bones, very basic cruise with the advantage of visiting one of our bucket list locations (with the ease of getting into Cuba via a cruise). But it turned out to be better than ...

Poor Service/Mass Crew Confusion

We booked a NCL cruise because it came highly recommended by past cruisers of NCL, past passengers on the Sun, as well as NCL crew that we are friends with. We love cruises because of the ease of travel as well as a general expectation of superb service. Unfortunately, we did not find this on our cruise on the Sun. Once we arrived at the terminal we were met by a porter who was extremely rude ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We choose this cruise for it 5 night itinerary because it went to Belize and we were very excited to get out on their famous reef. DISEMBARKATION WAS AN ABSOLUTE DISASTER! Another ship was at the pier, the Norwegian Escape, so our ship had to tender ashore. Apparently this had never been done because it took over 3 hours in lines for us to get off the ship. We have cruised at least a dozen ...

I picked this cruise rather last minute, which for me is unusual. I am usually the deal hunter who books in advance. In fact I still have a booking for Carnival Magic in December 2019 that was already booked when I found this cruise. This cruise fell into spring-break for my kids schools. We had originally planned to vacation at Destin on the outer bank, and my wife had submitted her vacation ...
