7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 18, 2007
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago

The ship was very nice, and it seemed very clean and tidy all the time, everywhere we went. Our room was always cleaned, twice a day (which was very nice because we often made a trip back to our room in the middle of the day). We loved how quiet our room was. When we retired to our room to sleep, we didn't hear a thing - it was great! The ship was also very elegant - very nicely decorated.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The restaurants were wonderful! The food was outstanding and so plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the freshness of the food - the fruits and vegetables, the dessert... and the food was always served hot - awesome!

The musical shows were great, and although one play was good, the others were a little strange so we didn't really love those.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
We don't have children, but the adult activities were great - lots of game show things (we love trivia games) and as I said above the musical acts were wonderful.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our favorite staff members were the cabin stewards. They were so friendly and went above and beyond to keep everything so neat and clean in our rooms. Otherwise, only one staff member really took the time to talk to others - it's probably because they are so busy though...

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Again, the restrooms, public areas, everything was always very nice and clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our room was great! The bed was so comfortable! It wasn't huge, but we had plenty of storage space, and we loved being at the end of a hallway because it was quiet.

The port was pretty good, but we didn't do much there. We shopped and then sat on the beach. It was very pretty though.

We loved Belize - everyone spoke great English, and the country was beautiful. The people were friendly and hospitable.
Don't Miss: Jungle Trek / Cave Tubing - what an awesome adventure! The caves were huge & our tour guide Chris was awesome.

We loved Guatemala. We immediately felt like we were able to mingle with the locals, and they were the warmest and friendliest people of all. They gave us a touching farewell that brought tears to my eyes.
Don't Miss: Las Escobas waterfall adventure - the hike and the freezing cold, beautiful waterfalls were awesome! Jorge was our tour guide, and he was great.
5 out of 5
This was a beautiful place. The shopping area seemed so nice and we felt very safe.
Don't Miss: The party boat - snorkeling, a private beach, and ample alcohol - what more could you want? Our ship crew on the catamaran were wonderful - excellent service!

Pros: The food, the excursions, the service by our cabin stewards

Cons: Room service menu, unavailability of an excersion we thought we had booked (to Xel-ha)

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!
