7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 04, 2007
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Our room was a dissapointment from the beginning. We paid extra for a balcony but couldn't use it much. Our neighbors were extremely obscene and would climb up and watch us over the dividers. When we complained the staff said there wasn't much that could be done unless they were caught in the act and there were no other rooms available to which they could transfer us. The room thermostat was inoperative and the bathroom smelled constantly.
We did, however, enjoy the fine service in the dining rooms. The free-style dining had its pro's and con's. It allowed more freedom, but didn't "force" us to get to know people. We ate once at one of the cover-charge ($20 per person) dining roooms. Food was good but wasn't worth the additional amount since the main dining room served just as good a meal.
Everyone said the layout of the ship was poor. You often had to go up or down a level to reach the other end of the ship. People were constantly getting lost.
We proabably won't go on an NCL ship again.

Getting more commercialized. Last time we went we took a snorkle trip which took us to a nice sandy beach. This time it was off some rocks near the ship.

Not much to offer. Just a tourist trap.

People were great. Lots to see and do. We went inner-tubing down the river. Other options offered sounded great!

Not much to offer. We were told it was unsafe to go into town so we were stuck at the port building for the vendors. The port was for commercial shipping so not much to look at.
