We thought the value was good for a 20 day cruise and haven't been to some of the ports in Chile, Peru, etc. The itinerary was great. Ending in San Francisco was a real treat for us to explore wine country. The balcony cabin was nice ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had a limited time period to travel and we wanted to see South America. We did not realize that in our early 50's, we would be some of the youngest people on the ship. This is not a bad thing but it ... Read more

The excursions were wonderful. The guides informative, friendly and entertaining. We learned so much about a part of the world that we knew so little about. We could not have asked to be treated more courteously by the ship's staff. They ... Read more

My wife and I travelled with a group of 62. We got to Buenos Aires a couple of days prior to boarding the Norwegian Sun, and I'm glad we did. It gave us a chance to explore the city and at least get a taste of it. Once we were on ... Read more

Before embarking our tour company had arranged for two days and 3 nights in Santiago beforehand and we will not discuss this here as the airline lost our luggage and this is nothing to do with NCL or our tour operator. However, Santiago is ... Read more

We chose NCL because of the price and the port itinerary. We have been on other cruise lines and NCL just once before about 15 years ago. This ship was a nice size, only 2000 passengers. Easy to get around, but maybe because there was ... Read more
