I'll never sail with NCL again
"I just got back from my first NCL cruise today and I definitely didn't want to wait to write this. Let me start with the pros: The ship is very clean, and it is nice. The wait and cleaning staff are nice..."Read More

I chose this cruise because it was going to Key West & Cozumel, 2 places I wanted to revisit and leaving out of Canaveral meant I did not have the additional drive to Miami. We are platinum with NCL so we know what to expect Ship: Small which is OK but it is laid out very poorly, you have to go thru too many places to get where you are going Cabin: we had a handicapped accessible room ( ...

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 under staffed. A nice tip here and there upped the service levels on future visits. Entertainment was good. The illusionist was great, really got the kids involved. The singers had some ...

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. Probably the Corona virus slowed things down because they were checking passports very carefully. Once aboard, we noticed a general lack of attention to detail. One of the couples had ...

We sailed with NCL 5 years ago on the larger ships... Epic. We were happy to leave close to home and enjoy a smaller ship with the Sun out of port Canaveral. I just returned today. I’ve read reviews on this site and others for years. I’ve waited until today to post for the first time. Pros: we enjoyed the food. The traditional dining room was good. The stops and the size of ship were all ...

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 it was more of a case of the dates work, the itinerary looks ok the price is great lets do it! Getting There: We flew from NY to MCO that morning and had arranged a transfer ...

Four friends just returned 02/12/20 from Norwegian Sun cruise to Costa Maya and Cozumel. The entire cruise was wonderful from the stateroom to the yummy food to the entertainment. We ate at two specialty restaurants, La Cucina and Cagney’s. The food in La Cucina was delicious. Two people ordered the tbone steak. It was great. Cagney’s was simply superb! Best steak any of us had ever had. And the ...

We decided on this cruise because of the great price offered by NCL. We had a mid ship balcony and took advantage of the 4 perk deal. I will review the items and places we visited and if not mentioned it's due to the fact we just didn't use that facility. Getting the ship was a breeze. We paid $100 for the VIP check in. What a great decision on that. We arrived at the ship around 1130 and ...

Chose this cruise on a bit of a last minute special. We got Balcony Cabin for a great deal. I was a little skeptical due to the other reviews but don't listen to those negative cruisers. This was a fantastic cruise for my wife and I and worth every penny. The ship is bit older but still in great shape, clean, and serviceable where it counts. BE AWARE OF THIS THOUGH: It is best for ...

Great experience just got off NCL Sun. Was very pleased with our overall cruise experience. Pros: Service in MDR was phenomenal. Ask for Vanessa, she was our server and an absolutely amazing one too. We requested her every meal after night 1 because her service was so great. Drinks came out fast and were good. Unpopular opinion, I prefer the ship with people being gifted the beverage ...

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 looked much better than it had when we first took it in 2011. The cabin was clean and compact, lots of space for clothing and stuff. However, the bathroom was a bit cramped - not a lot ...
