Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is very clean, and pretty. There is really limited things to do on the ship, the salt water in the 2 pools was freezing, you could only jump in then get out Brrrrr. The 4 small hot tubs were ok. The activities director - Linda was pretty much annoying and the entertainment was poor for us, and pretty much everyone else we talked to. The bingo cost a fortune for 1-4 games and they can't wait to get rid of you. all activities seem to be a bother to the staff/ and if you get picked they can be down right rude.

Pros: Really didn't have to be anywhere at anytime/ Spa treatments were wonderful

Cons: limited things to do on the ship/ and the ports/ paid $ 250 in mandatory tips/ $ 200 for beer and never once got drunk

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!

Ship Quality
If at all possible spend the extra to get a balcony. We had a window stateroom that you had to crawl on the bed to look out the window and no way to get out of the bed except for the 1 side.
Entertainment
Food and Dining
you can find something to eat no matter what your preferences are pretty much anytime of the day or night. make sure you do bring dress casual to enjoy the main dining rooms for dinner the selection is more then the buffet. we did pay to eat at the italian restaurant, before 6 pm is half price -cost us $10. The food was truly worth it.
Cabin / Stateroom
my parents had a balcony stateroom they had a nice sitting area and 2 chairs out on the balcony and was easy to walk around the whole rrom
Service and Staff
I do have to say they have a singing act on the ship that truly isn't promoted it is called the Duo Royal a husband /wife team. The wife sings like an angel her voice amazes you and her innocence is refreshing.
Cozumel, Mexico
there is very limited beach area since the hurricane, but the rebuilding of this area is evident with many things to see here

Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala
this is a very-very limited port small shopping area but a must see these people try so hard to please you and actually lined up on the pier (all of them cab drivers included) to see us off. you can walk out into the town but it has armed guards walking around and they only speak spanish
Don't Miss: you really need to do an excursion at this port
Belize City, Belize
We met the Catholic Priest Rev Fr Oliver Small Jr who runs 5 missions in Belize on his own. He is fron the US but has been there for 20 yrs, this is an english speaking, very poor country. He took us to his missions which is truly eye opening, and a new church that they finially got funding to erect.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
This ia a very limited port- appears they are just building it. you get off the boat to a shopping area. if you walk out of the shopping area you can take a cab/ ride a golf cart or just walk the 2 miles to the villiage- once you leave the gate for the shopping area there are cabs that will take you for 2 dollars. the prices at the village are alot less and we sat there with buckets(6) of coronas for $10. some of the excursions took you here
Don't Miss: bring your own snorkeling gear walk to the village save $50
