Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The quality of food was good and the menus were varied. However, cutbacks were noticeable; for example, no lobster bisque nor key lime pie. The chocoholic buffet included only a fraction of past similar buffets - no chocolate cheesecake or chocolate covered strawberries.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
My teenage grand daughter thoroughly enjoyed the teen program and was able to meet/make friends. It made her onboard experience fun.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
In particular, our room attendants did an excellent job. They were friendly and efficient. In the dining room, we found one particular waiter who personified "old style cruising" with his friendly, knowledgable service. However, I don't feel enough effort was made to locate my missing luggage which did not turn up until the 5th day and when it did, no information/explanation was given to us.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had inside staterooms which although small, were comfortable.

Pros: The Ports of Call

Cons: Not being informed beforehand that a particular group of 500, whose views my family does not share, would be cruising with us. It restricted our activities on board.

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!
