Norwegian Sun

September 2015 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Alaska - Surprising Trip

The Norwegian Sun is a small ship, however we had about the same experience as on other NCL ships, which is generally good. Of note: Breakfast dining room service always falls short and the Sun is no exception. Coffee not refilled, slow service, forgotten items, staff reluctant to handle special requests, we have just come to expect it, but the buffet is worse so.....one previous available smoking areas has been eliminated, annoying. VERY friendly ship staff, steward, bar and dining generally everyone is pleasant. The entertainment: ship staff good and bad, as usual, the guests were great! We will avoid the Sun...just too small for us, but for Alaska you need small ships.

accobend's Tips

Juneau, Alaska - No idea....total washout that day. Another time perhaps.
Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska - Not much in the way of wildlife or scenery at this point between Ketchikan and Vancouver and it was somewhat cloudy anyway.
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska - Beautiful scenery, however ATV shore excursion was a bust...awful and expensive. The port was 'created or enhanced' just to service cruise ships, so everything is way overpriced....disappointing. Enjoy it from the ship.
Seward (Anchorage), Alaska - Not the worst port....but it's fine and if you stay in Seward the night prior to cruising you can board ahead of those taking the train or bus from Anchorage....a plus!!
Ketchikan, Alaska - Touristy....but your last chance to get something or see something of Alaska and it is scenic.
Norwegian Sun Norwegian Sun - Le Bistro is wonderful, food service and ambiance. We would definitely recommend. Moderno has great food, but DO NOT fill up on the salad bar, lots of meats to choose from. Warning!! The salad bar area seating is directly under the basketball court and the noise is terrible, constant banging.
