We had a wonderful time on the 9/28/02- 10/5/02 sailing of the Norwegian Sun. Due to a Tropical Storm/Hurricane we traveled to the ports in a different order, but we had a great time in each one. With that said, people need to understand that Roatan, Honduras is "third world" and Belize is only somewhat better. These were our favorite ports though, as they are not as commercial as Cozumel and Grand Cayman. They had a cool kids program (our child turned 4 while on the cruise). He wanted to go there rather than spend time with us. They did arts and crafts projects, "field trips" through the ship and to some of the shows. Meanwhile, there were plenty of activities for my husband and I or we could just take a walk on deck and enjoy the fresh air. We enjoyed the art auctions and found pieces actioned for as little as $50 and some well into the thousands. The food was very good. We did not try the specialty restaurants, as we were quite happy with the meals in the two main dining rooms. We also had a couple of meals in the Garden Cafe (buffet), and found many choices that we liked and some new things to try. We like the freestyle dining concept, but many on board did not. For us, it worked great as we could eat at the time that best suited our schedule that day. Some nights we ate at 6pm, on others 8 or 8:30. The staff and crew were very accommodating and willing to make us happy. We are already planning our next cruise with NCL! Carol from FL
