This was my wifes and my first cruise and we didn't really know what to expect, we were not disappointed!! The NCL SUN is a beautiful ship, very comfortable and had every amenity we could have asked for. Our Balcony room was tight but very well appointed and had a surprising amount of stowage. The balcony was fair sized but did hold some water that wouldn't drain out causing some wet feet. We tried almost every dining room and found the food to be wonderful throughout. The buffet was good and not too crowded with an ample selection that could have included a larger selection of fish and vegetables. We were never at a loss for things to do and they kept us entertained with shows and great entertainers and I especially enjoyed the Blackjack Tournament in the Casino. Our first Port was Costa Maya and we did the Jeep Excursion, a well run operation and nice private beach. The port is just a shopping stop for the cruise lines but very comfortable and relaxing. Our second stop was Cozumel where we had to be "tendered" to shore and the seas were rough (in my opinion). We Taxied to the Jet Boat excursion..........avoid at all costs!! This tour is poorly operated and was dangerous and should be removed from NCL's list of activities. The trip back to our home port of New Orleans was a little rough and we were delayed at the mouth of the river but not he fault of NCL. All in all we had a great time and would recommend NCL and the Sun to anyone.
