7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)

Ship: Norwegian Sun

Traveled As: Couple

The ship is beautiful and the lay out of it was easy to navigate. Its been newly re-furbished and it looks amazing, it looks like a new ship. The staff aboard was absolutely great, there was not one thing that was asked of them that was done quickly and with a smile. The free style restaurants (no cover charge dining) serve a different main course with always available items and was really good. The buffet has a good variety of foods but buffet is not my wife's favorite so guys you know how that goes. NCL impressed us so much that we put a down payment on our next cruise.

Quality was well above average and we had no problem getting a table to sit at which was a problem on our last cruise (different cruise line).

Would have enjoyed a different variety of shows but there was always a large crowd so this may just be my isolated opinion. The shows were good just not really my style for a couple of them.

Vicenta was our steward and he was without a doubt the most amazing and informative crew member we met. Never did figure out how he knew when we would be gone long enough to get or room straightened out.

The port is an industrial area and you can walk back a ways to a flea market style building where we did buy a few things but the tours would be the only way to do stuff there are some bad areas that are not recommended.

Nice place to visit but be ready to say no to everyone who lives there because each and every one of them are ready to sell something to the "pretty lady"

Nice shopping area around the ports and we took a city/country tour that was very informative and eye opening.

Took a great tour by bike, we sat he pedaled, very personal and informative. The only down side of the port was the 5 hour window of time, which was only about 3 1/2 by time you get off and back on, we would have liked a full day to see all the stuff available to see, this would have been a great walking tour area if time would have permitted.
Don't Miss: Southern most point of the USA marker and the 0 mile marker for I-94

Pros: The whole staff and their attention to the guests

Cons: Need more variety of shows

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!
