Great time for reading and relaxing

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 ...

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 ...

Back-to-back Transatlantic and Baltic

Age 70s

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

I knew when I saw this itinerary, that I wanted to do this because we have never been on a trans-atlantic cruise before. We flew directly to Dusseldorf via Air Berlin from LAX where we were met by German friends that we became friends with when we were on the NCL JADE to the Black Sea in 2009. After a day and night of German hospitality we then went by train to Lubeck where we stayed a couple ...

Pleasant Cruise for a Great Price and Itinerary

Consider this a review from the point of view of someone whos never cruised on NCL but has some experience on HAL and Princess. We chose this cruise based on price and itinerary and while we were not disappointed in either of these respects, we did find ourselves quite disappointed at the end of the cruise for 2 very specific reasons that Ill detail at the end. To us they were important; to you ...

I have just joined Cruise Critic on the recommendation of one of the passengers ( ??? on the treadmill. Hi Annette) on this years trip. I have to echo the opinions of CLEMENTJR with respect to cost cutting, food and service. We had sailed on the Sun last year from Dover to Port Canaveral in a balcony cabin on deck 8 aft and really enjoyed the trip. While on that trip we were told that the ship ...

I just completed a 15 day Atlantic crossing on the Norwegian Sun. This was my 28th cruise so I feel I have some experience for comparison. This was my 6th Norwegian experience. The cruise was a very frustrating experience. NCL is evidently cutting so far back on spending that passengers are no longer high on their priority list. The menu for dinner never changed with the exception of one ...
