5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 23, 2007
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Balcony
Reviewed: 11 years ago
The entertainment made it for us every day of the cruise. We love to dance and there was always a place to dance with great music for a rare combination. Even though the ship is of medium size by today's standards, the dance troupe, singers, comedian, and other acts were first class. The food was excellent in the main restaurants but a little less so in the buffet and informal eating areas. The only drawback was the various informal eating areas where you had to go to two, three, or four different lines to get all you wanted (the basic buffet line; a different omelet line; and yet another waffle line). All in all, we had a wonderful time and would love to cruise the ship again.

Not as opulent as the larger ships but very nice with more than the basics.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had a balcony room that was adequate but nice. The balcony always makes a big difference to us.

Pros: The entertainment was first rate. A duo played everynight in the lounge with a combination of great dancing (lots more than usual) and wonderful listening. Two other bands played combinations of calypso, rock and roll, disco, latin, and era music.

Cons: We enjoyed the freestyle cruising concept of eating on your own schedule. Food was good although not exceptional but the service was disjointed and somewhat inefficient especially at breakfast.

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!
