Embarkation took us no more than 10 minutes with lots of people to check in passengers. If it takes longer, perhaps you didn't fill out your paperwork ahead of time. The ship is lovely; not at all glitzy!!! Anyone who says the food is so-so must expect gourmet all the time. We had delicious meals with a good variety of foods in the main dining room and the service could not have been better. The Garden Cafe was good also...much better than other cruise ships we been on. Great homemade ice cream, also. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and passengers were having a great time. We did not take any of the shore excursion because they are way too expensive. We had no trouble getting tours on shore which were reasonable and we had an exceptional experience in Roatan. Our taxi driver was Omar # 244. He took us everywhere, including the beaches that were on the ship's excursions. He was willing to let us swim, snorkle, or go on a boat if we wanted. He took us all over the island which took ALL day for $70 for the two of us. We ate at a litle restaurant he chose for us on the beach and had a seafood platter consisting of two lobsters, lots of grilled shrimp, and the absolute best red snapper we ever had. Omar can be found outside the gate waiting to take you on his tour. He speaks English and is easy to understand. Cabins were not fancy and could have had more closet space for two people. (really only room for one person). All in all, it was a great cruise. We definitely will sail on the Sun again. P.S. they won't let you bring wine on board without paying a $10. corkage fee per bottle. Bummer!!!
