Travel for relaxation was the main reason for this particular cruise. MISSON ACCOMPLISHED! The ship is smallish and very easy to navigate. We had a balcony room on the 10 deck which was perfect. Large enough for 2 people to easily navigate and a much larger bathroom that many other cruise ships. The service from beginning to end was great. We spent a great deal of time in deck chairs enjoying ...

NORWEGIAN SUN--A Disappointment

Copenhagen/Miami Sept. 30-- Oct. 14, 2012 Since we do not drink, gamble, or bake in the sun, our cruising experience focuses primarily on itinerary, quality of service, food, and entertainment. As this was a repositioning cruise, we had no expectations concerning itinerary but were, none the less, disappointed that the stop at the lovely port city of Funchal, Madeira was a mere 5 hours. ...

Where to start? NOTHING IS NORWEGIAN!!!!! They shouldn't be allowed to use the name. The purser knew nothing to help us with the money needs in the many ports we visited. The announcers spoke so poor English we couldn't understand them (not Norwegian. In fact a Norwegian passenger said "why do they translate to every language except Norwegian?"). Super rude waiter; waiting beyond the start of ...

Transatlantic and the Baltic on Norwegian Sun

Embarkation- Port Canaveral is under construction and was full of detours - it took the bus driver three or four circuits before he got us to the termi8nal. When we arrived we had to tote our baggage a hundred yards or so to the terminal from the bus parking area, but after that the embarkation process was smooth, easy and uncrowded. The Ship- Norwegian Sun is a medium aged ship and on the ...

Back-to-back Transatlantic and Baltic

I enjoy art, architecture, museums, big cities, old palaces, new cultures, and meeting new people. My wife likes the laid-back aspects of cruising--long, carefree days at sea with absolutely nothing to do but the little she really wants to do--she's a bingo addict. She also enjoys culinary demonstrations. We both like fine dining, dressing for dinner, posing for photos, live entertainment and ...

13 Day TA and 9 Day Baltic - Spoiled Rotten on the Sun!

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We decided this time (cruise #'s 19 and 20) to take back-to-back cruises.....13 day TA from Port Canaveral to Copenhagen, and 9 Day Baltic round-trip Copenhagen. The first 13 days were TA with two stops, Ponta del Gado and Amsterdam. I can't say enough great things about the crew of the Sun. The ship was not full during the first leg, and we all were spoiled rotten. Our stateroom steward, ...

The NCL SUN is a ship of a size we prefer. It is easy to find ones way around, and deck 6 offers a fine walking deck with views of whatever is out there. We like the buffet dining areas for the variety they offer and we no longer even bring dress up clothes. Saves on luggage space that way! Besides I never have enough time to do all the things I want without having to "get ready "for dinner. ...

Copenhagen to Florida on NCL-Sun

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

From the moment we booked our NCL-Sun cruise we saw the efficiency at which this line is run. Checking in on-line was easy and printing out the e-docs a breeze. Once in the cruise terminal we were welcomed with no lines, plenty of check-in personnel, smiles, and offers to assist in any way possible. Upon boarding the ship, we were directed to eating and meeting venues by the smiling staff along ...

WHY I TOOK THIS CRUISE: I purchased a future cruise on a previous NCL cruise and had to use it up. Plus it was TA and I am just getting interested in TA crossings, plus they tend to be less expensive. . TRAVEL TO EMBARKATION: I flew to Copenhagen on Icelandic ending up on business class. Reservations were made on coach but whereas I was upgraded to business at no cost and got to eat in the ...
