Background - We were a group 3 families - 6 adults & 7 kids (17,17,16,15,14,14,8) vacationing on our 3rd cruise, but the first on NCL. So, this review will have a little more a family tilt. New Orleans -- We arrived in New Orleans by air on Saturday afternoon and took a taxi ($48) to the Embassy Suites Convention Center. I thought the hotel was clean, in a great location and would stay there ...

Went on this, our 6th cruise just to try out NCL and get away for a week. We travel a LOT and took a cruise just to keep from having to pack and unpack constantly. Here's our take on the Sun. Food: Reading prior reviews caused us a little concern about the food quality. HOWEVER, AND THIS IS A BIG HOWEVER, we were very pleasantly surprised. Being native New Orleanians, our taste buds are jaded ...

My partner and I are from Birmingham Alabama and this was our first experience sailing with Norwegian. Our cruise was April 8th through April 15th. We arrived in New Orleans on April 7th and stayed at the Sheraton on Canal, just blocks away from the cruise terminal. Service is always good at this property, plus it gave us excellent views of the ship the morning of embarkation. Embarkation: We ...

We left on our cruise out of New Orleans, which was a joy. We arrived early and were able to get on the ship by 11:30. All of the embarkation went smoothly and very quick. Once we got onto the ship, we met our Room Stewart, Mikle, who was always there when he was needed and seemed to always be working. He took excellent care of us and our accommodations. The balcony room was worth every penny we ...

Norwegian Sun by Georgia (Magnolia Blossom) Western Caribbean March 25, 2007 About us. 54/59 year old semi-retired professiinals. Our 28th cruises, 7th on NCL and 3rd on the Sun. Not terribly fussy, pretty laid back. Embarkation - Port of New Orleans. This was our third sailing from the new facility and each time has been a bit more organized. They seem to finally have their ...

Just back from Sun. I will try to be objective. Overall, disappointed. I may have expected too much. Previously sailed on NCL in 2000 and 2001, prior to freestyle. 4 prior Carnival cruises. Sailed with my husband. We drove to NO from the Nashville area. We are in our late 30's. The food and service on NCL were far superior in the past, prior to freestyle. NO's was fine. We walked around the ...

After sailing on NCL for three prior vacations I have to say that NCL Sun was the best NCL cruise that we have ever been on. My wife and I started the cruise on Sunday in New Orleans and had dinner in the La Bistro so we could see the great sites on our way out of the Mississippi. As for activities at our fun day at sea the crew tried to keep everyone satisfied but as everyone knows not everything ...

Norwegian Sun Review Sail Date 03-04-2007 As a former travel agent, and avid cruiser, I realize how important it is to have ship reviews. As hard as it is sometimes to take the time to write the review after the excitement has worn off, and the bags are unpacked, I know how much I enjoy reading reviews, so this is my way of giving back the cruise community. Let me say that I am fairly ...

What a big disappointment!!! I have sailed before but not with NCL. I must admit I will never sail NCL again. This was the worst experience I have ever had with a cruise line. The itinerary on this ship was wonderful. The ports of calls were spectacular!!! Costa Maya.... The port is good. You can do some shopping. Find a few good buys. The party at this port was loud, wild and crazy!!! But ...
