Panama cruise was great once we got on the ship, took two hours to get there. Had a balcony cabin with all new furniture and tv Everything worked extremely well during the entire cruise. Perhaps because it was an older ship the state room was surprisingly large compared to the Gem and Dawn we have sailed on before. Service was excellent from our room attendant Mathias D to the bartenders and wait ...

We thoroughly enjoyed the 18 day Panama Canal full transit cruise aboard the Norwegian Sun! The cruise ports with sea days interspersed allowed for a nice combination of relaxation and activities. The ship just came out of dry dock and it looked beautiful. All the public rooms including the Spinnaker lounge on the top deck were lovely. We sailed out of Seattle and had superb weather the ...

Ports chosen were small and within walking distance of the ship.

Restaurant service was top notch. Room steward was excellent. Balcony was great. Good weather. Lots of sun! Lot of work being done on the ship caused some inconvenience... Expensive gratuities! Drink package chosen for 2 people comes with a charge of $450. gratuity. Soda not available by the can with drink package. Water not included. We drank the water from the ice bucket... bought bottled ...

We selected this cruise because of itinerary because going through the Panama Canal really appealed to us! Even though the ship is smaller than the new mega cruisers, the fantastic service and enthusiasm makes this cruise a memorable experience!!! The free style dining allows a lot of flexibility for diners. The casual atmosphere made it easy to pack! We used the Seven Seas dining room mostly ...

We took the 14 day Miami to Los Angeles cruise thru the Panama Canal and it was fabulous! The restaurants, staff, ship, everything! We were in the Owner’s Suite and it was lovely. And, I must say, our Concierge Carlos and Butler Carlos were the best we’ve had yet! On top of everything! We never asked twice for anything. In fact it was like they read our minds! I guess the one thing I would ...

I chose this cruise for the trip through the Canal plus having the experience of several ports that I was interested in seeing in Mexico, Costa Rica and Columbia. It was action packed with many activities onboard. Actually, too much to do - with overlapping activities that I wished I could take part in but didn't get a chance. My steward was very attentive and helpful and I loved all those ...

Always wanted to do a panama canal cruise. We were not disappointed. It was hot and humid, so that limited our excursions. They couldn't guarantee an air conditioned bus, so didn't go on any tours, just went out to shops close to the ship. Our first time cruising with NCL and it won't be our last. Inside cabin was larger than expected, bed very comfortable. Our steward was outstanding. ...

We chose Norwegian Sun ship because of the itinerary. NCL is our cruise choice. We left out of Miami. We like to visit Miami. We went to South Beach for the day. We got a inside cabin in the 8th floor, aft. We arrived at the dock at 10:00 am and were on the ship by noon. Of course we hit the buffet!! We walked the ship to become familiar with the floors and the facilities. The ship was very easy ...

I was traveling with my 81 year old mom who has limited mobility. We wanted a cruise with interesting ports we haven't seen before. We both enjoyed the cruise immensely. It was a great blend of interesting places and relaxing sea days. This was our fourth cruise, and it was the first time I did not have a list of complaints afterwards. Service was excellent everywhere. Food--We were very ...

I went to San Diego on Thursday, one day before departure. Wyndham San Diego Bayside provided a free shuttle from the airport to the hotel, which is directly across the street from the departure port. The hotel was very nice, the area seemed completely safe, and walking around the port area was interesting. Had I understood how beautiful San Diego is, I would have gone a day or two ...
