Rough seas, cold weather, beverages and food aplenty

|

While the seas were rough and the weather cold in Florida and the Bahamas, we had a lot of fun as first-time cruisers. Our trip took us from Port Canaveral Florida to Tortola BVI, St Thomas USVI and Great Stirrup ...

Service not the greatest

Getting on and off the ship in Port Canaveral was the easiest I have experienced in 8 cruises. Truly a breeze! I had been on the Breakaway in July and absolutely loved the ship. When we came home I booked ...

The most fun I’ve ever had

We arrived in Orlando and took an Uber to Cocoa Beach the day before the cruise. The beach is beautiful and we really enjoyed our evening. Next day our hotel provided transportation to the port. Ideally we would ...

Slow Service & Lack of Attention to Detail

This was our 7th cruise. We went with 2 other couples. One had been on the Sun six months earlier and loved it. Apparently, it has gone downhill since then. We spent 1 1/2 hours in line waiting to board. ...

Very disappointed!

We have cruised 8 times (3 with NCL) and this was far and away the worst cruise trip that we have experienced. The Breakaway was obviously at capacity on 02/15/2020 and the crew simply could not handle 4,000 ...

An Average Experience

My father in law booked a cruise for 6 to make it a family vacation. We had a balcony, free at sea package, etc. It was OK. The food was good to average, bars were always full and usually had to wait. Seemed ...

Living in the Haven

We had experienced RCL's 2 bedroom suite but our family was intrigued with the Haven concept. We found it to be almost everything we had anticipated with one or two flaws. We were on Deck 15 and the main Haven area ...

Better than last time

First because it went out of Port Canaveral - we live nearby. Also, because the price was right. Getting on the ship was very easy and quick, although it was top time to embark, 1:00 pm. The ship was clean and ...

Haven Suite not really worth it

So for our Honeymoon we decided to splurge on a suite and decided to cruise with Norwegian because of the Haven suites. We got a spa suite and the room was very nice. having a full king bed was way better than two ...

Try another cruise ship

Not what it's advertised to be. At sea days, very poor shipboard activities. They exist, but are short. When you are so bored you find yourself in the library playing checkers, there is a problem. Although many of ...

Just OK Anniversary Cruise

We wanted a short cruise on a smaller ship to celebrate our 50th anniversary of meeting (not wedding), which happened on Valentine's Day, 1970. The Sun appeared to fit the bill, being much smaller than our previous ...

Perfect Sunshine On The Sun

This was our 3rd NCL cruise and the first on the Sun and the first with our 3 year old daughter. We booked last min, about 2 weeks out for an amazing price; so we didn't really do any up front research on the ship ...

First and Last Cruise

This was our first, and unfortunately, our last cruise experience. The ship is beautiful, but 4000 people crammed in one ship, no matter how big, is just too much. Embarkation was quick and easy and we booked an ...
