Disappointing ship

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The scenery through Alaska was amazing!  The ship was disappointing.  We found quite a few of the bartenders and front desk personnel rude.  The food in the buffet was tasteless, the Dazzle seating was stained and cushions crushed down to the springs in the seats.  The windows throughout were dirty and streaked so not easy to see out.  The activities were very minimal.  We watched videos of the Sun ships and they were superior compared to our trip.  This is our first cruise and it can only get better from here.  We ordered the romance package also and didn't get the roses because they said they couldn't get fresh ones for us and the cake was left in our room thinking they forgot to serve it to us and no silverware to eat with.

My favorite part of the cruise was Alaska and discovering its beauty.

I was disappointed in the unfriendliness of the entire staff...except for one employee.  Deo, our room attendant was wonderful.  He called us by name from day 1 and got us a different pillow because my husband has neck issues.  Norwegian Sun  did not make a positive impression on me due to the lack of helpfulness and friendliness of its staff.

Thank you for listening and hope it will help to make a positive difference.

The cruise to Alaska on the Norwegian Sun was fantastic.  The scenery in Alaska was amazing, the cabin was wonderful, the food was great, the staff was really nice, the excursions were fun, and the entertainment on board was surprising top notch.  this cruise was everything we had hoped for.  I would recommend this cruise to anyone that wants a trip of a lifetime!

Anniversary trip

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We really enjoyed our trip on the Sun.  The whole ship was extremely clean and the staff very friendly and helpful.  

 

We ate at all the restaurants and buffets where we were delighted with all the choices.  Our only complaints is that no matter which place we ate at, the food was usually just luke warm.  Not sure if the food has to come from a distance away from the dining area or not, even had cold scrambled eggs and meat on the buffet.  

 

The entertainment was good and tasteful.  Thank you for having the ladies dressed so that their bottoms was not exposed to us.  We have been on other cruise lines where this was the case, which makes it not family friendly. The cruise director David does an excellent job and we really enjoyed the comedian Fred Bevel, really funny guy and not offensive.

 

We are planning on a 2018 cruise to New Zealand and would definitely consider using Norweigan again.

Alaskan Cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The cruise, excursions, and food were great.  Plan on future cruises and no plans for right now.  Will book again however by booking with United, Norwegian had some issues showing my transfers, and I was the principle owner of the account I was listed second and my name did not show on the transfers.

Age of ship and lack of interesting activities

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The sights and ports were the best part of the trip. The ship was really showing it's age with the wear and tear and rust. I'm "0 for 2" on cruise ships. First time was Royal Caribbean and now NCL. If I go again I'll probably pick Holland America. My parents said they were treated like "royalty" there, although the price was about $1000 more.

There is nothing you can say about Alaska other than UNBELIEVABLE!!

The entire cruise we were treated with everything we could want or need. Everyone treated us very well and made sure our cruise was truly a JOY!!

Our room was an inside stateroom however, it was nice and a good size, and was located well to all parts of the ship. The food was outstanding and never ending! Special thanks to the cruise director and his staff as the entertainment aboard the ship was absolutely brilliant!!

To Long To Old

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

14 days is way to long to cruise. It becomes same old same old .   The Sun is way to old of a ship, needs remodeling badly.   Although, Alaska is breath taking.   7 days is enough.   Vancouver is a major nightmare, try and leave the port for the air port was a 2 to 3 hour wait cab or any kind to transportation.  The people that were suppose to help only demanded to get into line very rude and unhelpful.  Think twice !!!

Spectacular Itinerary

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Glaciers, Whales, Sea Lions, Eagles Totems, Native Cultural Experiences were the highlights of our cruise from San Francisco to Alaska!   All that was missing from my bucket list was northern lights but the rest of my bucket list items were fulfilled with this fun-filled, very scenic cruise up the pacific coast and inside passage!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The entertainment for this cruise was very very good. As Plat.travelers  they did not treat us right. We were suppose to get 2 diners and 2 bottles of wine, we did get 2 diners but only 1 bottle of wine. When we went to 1 place to eat that was approved the first thing we got was a wine list and I THOUGHT IT WAS INCLUDID. But we got a bill for it at the end of cruise. Also because we are Plat. patrons I also thought we would get more dinners and wine but the Capt. said the rules have been changed. We spent about $1100.00 on this Cruise and in the Future WE MAY CRUISE WITH ANOTHER CRUISE LINE. d wARNER

Moderno was a cool restaurant to visit, unique way of serving or offering "all the menu" as they would bring pieces to your table and you could say yes or decline the meat etc. I've never done that anywhere before, and thought it was a nice way of sampling all the things on the menu!

Read the reviews and pay attention to what they say especially on cruise critic and research the cruise line you are going to go on and before booking it read the current reviews

We had our breakfast each morning in the restaurant on the bar side. It was much quieter and so much more pleasant and always seats were available. It was like a hidden gem!
