My Rather Long Cruise Review!!!
"Like any cruise, everyone’s opinions and experiences are different, which is what makes the Cruise Critic reviews so interesting. This was our 6th NCL cruise We booked this cruise on the Sun 9 months before..."Read More

You get a "solid" experience for what you pay, but don't expect "5-star" quality

Chose this ship because of the pricing and its itinerary(both what we all wanted.) Went to Buenos Aires for 4 days ahead and toured city on our own. Highly recommend doing that. Transfer to ship on Feb 2 was easy and well organized by Ship. Just need a private taxi organized by your hotel. No need for NCL to do that. Food: I liken this experience to going to perhaps a favorite restaurant of ...

My wife and I chose this cruise since it fit in well with our schedule and compared to other South American cruises it visited the Falkland Islands and spent more time in the Chilean Fjords than some other ships. It was only our second "ocean" cruise (our last one was with Holland America in Alaska in 2010) Prior to the cruise we arranged with our travel director to visit Iguazu falls. Given ...

The ship is very clean and livable. We enjoyed the regular dining room which had very good food. The only exception was the lack of lamb chops, lobster or crab which you had to get in the specialty dining restaurants for extra money. I also sorely missed having any salmon for breakfast. The protein for breakfast was eggs plus unhealthy bacon, sausages, etc. Service was exceptional, ...

The most important for us was the itinerary. This was our first time sailing to South America. We enjoyed all the new ports on the way. The 3 tours which we took with NCL were very interesting and informative. This was also the first time we cruised with NCL and the experience was very good. I liked the ship and the many activities. There was a lot to choose from and everyone could ...

We were quite happy with this cruise. It was a repositioning cruise from Miami, through the Panama Canal, to Santiago, Chile. This was our first suite experience and had a fantastic time. This was the smallest ship we have been on, with a little less than 2,000 passengers. The ship itself was very easy to get around and never had a feeling of being overcrowded. We would absolutely recommend ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and we were not disappointed. We travelled the entire length of the Panama Canal and visited Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile. We had great shore excursions organized by some of our great roll call members. Waaaay cheaper than the NCL offers. I had read both good and bad reviews for the Norwegian Sun. Personally I found the ship the perfect size. Frankly ...

Within a couple of hours we were in our cabin and our bags showed up shortly after. The balcony cabin was very clean and stayed that way throughout the cruise. Our cabin steward was excellent; looking after our every need. The ports of call were good choices, from the Penguin colony on the Falkland Islands, to Ushuaia, Punta Arenas. the Beagle Channel with the glaciers and fjords, and other ...
