Great Cruise at a Great Price

Sail Date: December 01, 2007

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

This was a newer ship and we were very impressed with it after having read some previous reviews. We found no major faults and it was everything we expected plus more.

Pros: Excursions, very nice clean newer ship, very friendly staff.

Cons: Mixed about Freestyle dining

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!

Ship Quality
A very nice ship, good layout, halls were a little long but we personalized our cabin door with a holiday wreath which made it easier to find.
Food and Dining
Very good food and lots of dining options with Freestyle dining. We checked the menus on each dining room to decide where we would dine every evening and only missed once. Also the food at the buffet was usually very good and was a favorite breakfast place. Good selections and lots of options for every appetite.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an inside stateroom, the cheapest room on the ship and it was the largest stateroom we've ever had. It included a small alcove with a couch that could have easily been used as a spare bed! We decorated our room with a Christmas tree complete with lights and ornaments and the ship staff thought they had been to the North Pole! Lots of nice comments from both staff and fellow passengers who also were able to find their rooms from our door wreath.
Service and Staff
Very friendly, helpful and hard working. The shared tipping system didn't seem to affect the help from the staff. Our head steward was always smiling and knew our names from the first time we met and always used them. Very impressive and they also were quick to respond to any special requests we had.
Something going on every minute. The evening entertainment was top notch, the Jean Ann Ryan dancers are always great. Lots of other things going on all the time, even while in port for those who don't want to go ashore.
