We are a couple from the Mid-west (age 53 & 62), no kids, retired and Platinum latitude members. When we booked this cruise as our winter getaway, we did not have much knowledge of South America. We arrived in Santiago 2 days ... Read more

We chose the ship because of the itinerary and our previous positive experience with Norwegian. We especially like the free style dining. The service on the ship was generally outstanding. People were friendly and genuinely helpful. ... Read more

This was a very good cruise. Weather was super in all ports. A rough patch came up on one sea day, but the ship was stable in strong winds and high waves. Falklands offered a rocky return tender to the ship, but was well worth the ... Read more

We chose Norwegian because it had more ports of call on this route (around Cape Horn) than other lines,and for about the price of a balcony room on other lines we could have a mini-suite (with three of us sharing a room it was nice to have ... Read more

We chose this cruise for three main reasons. The itinerary went to ports in Brazil that we have never been before. Two, we love the staff and the service on the NCL Sun. Three, the food is always excellent, although we ate at specialty ... Read more

Got back from our cruise on Sat morning. Couple things about this cruise and our own personal preferences. The ship was too small. One pool, and hundreds of sun loving Brazilians and Argentinians and their many children do not make for ... Read more

This was our first Norwegian cruise. We chose Norwegian Sun because we wanted to go to a place we hadn't before, which was South America. We also wanted a cruise ship that was sailing for both Christmas and NYE. We thought the itinerary ... Read more

Great itinerary! Great Ship! Great Crew! Great Price! Great Cabin! After cruising on just about every cruise line and after cruising more than 250 cruises the Norwegian Sun wins my vote for best ship. It is wonderful to see it back in ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of it's great itinerary. We sailed Rio de Janeiro > Buenos Aires stopping at 5 ports along the way. Firstly, the boarding procedure was quick and simple but when we were on board there was literally no ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was inexpensive and we were interested in the destinations. We bought our tickets before learning that every US citizen in our party would have to jump through many hoops to get a $160 visa to enter Brazil. ... Read more

Great itinerary, I boarded in Buenos Aires ( after a wonderful week) and enjoyed visiting Uruguay and the coast of Brazil then departed in Rio for a week. This size ship ( I think 1,800 ) is perfect for a cruise like this. Easy to get ... Read more

I choose this cruise as it is a great way to see part of South America in a safe and secure environment. Given the crime levels in South America and not speaking Spanish or Portuguese the cruise is the obvious choice to get a flavour of ... Read more

Unfortunately the Norwegian survey wouldn't take this in, so this seems like the best place. (I've expanded a little - it would have been under the 1000 char limit) This was our 4th Norwegian cruise, and may be our last. Embarkation ... Read more

I took this cruise because I had not been to South America in over 6 years, and wanted to experience the sights and sounds of the region again. Specifically took this cruise because it fit my schedule well and the price was very good. I ... Read more

Sailed November 2016
This was our first (and probably last) cruise with NCL, having cruised with Princess previously. Firstly, we made a decision to walk to the port from our accommodation in Valparaiso. This was a complete disaster, as you have to check-in ... Read more

This cruise was booked through Infinity Cruises in London as a package, including flights, some transfers and hotel accommodation at beginning and end of the cruise. The booking process was excellent and I have no hesitation in ... Read more

I had chosen this particular line due to a group of factors such as route, the number of days, ports. Analysing by the shipping point of view is visible that is one of the older ships of the Norwegian Fleet having the necessity of a ... Read more

Unfortunately this cruise was off to bad start as no one could board for along time & there seemed to be no organisation. Finally on board after 2 hrs. in a queue.. then no cabins were ready for a very long time. Luggage was not ... Read more

First, the NCL repositioning cruise from San Diego to Valparaiso and then from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires does not sell out. We met dozens of people that booked the first leg - San Diego to Valparaiso the day before departure and paid ... Read more

Yes, the ingredients in this cruise vacation are a recipe for Awesomesauce! We're a middle aged couple from north/central Massachusetts. A little over a year ago I noticed the value of this unusual annual repo itinerary on ... Read more

Being in close quarters with your spouse for 17 days, not to mention hundreds of other passengers and crew, sounds like a good way to get cranky and swear off cruising for life. On the contrary, we found ourselves savoring the voyage, ... Read more
