Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
There could have been more choices on the dinner menu, but most food was good.


5 out of 5
We didnt think we would like the juggler, but he was one of the best acts on the stage. He was hilarious. And he could juggle. His audience participation added to the show.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We had some wonderful staff, including Pluto, Melodina, and Luciano. They were friendly, professional, and very helpful. And they were fun to be around.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The Sun is a smaller cruise ship, which was nice for our first cruise. It made getting around easier. It did lack some of the options of a larger ship, but suited us nicely.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The shower was a real challenge. How do you shave your legs in the confined space? The cabins could have a few more electrical outlets, and possibly a clock.

Ports Of Call

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
We ate at Margaritaville, and enjoyed it. We just shopped in the stores and then returned to the ship.

Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala

3 out of 5
The tour of Livingston was an eye opener to us. We were shocked at the poverty of this city. We enjoyed the boat trip to Livingston, and saw some of the beautiful scenery of the country. Our guide was good, but he was too rigid in his commentary. He did not interact with the tourists well.

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the tour of Belize City and the Mayan ruins. We were disappointed at the ruins. We thought we would be able to see into the tombs, but were not able to. Our tour guide was very good. He knew his information, and also had us involved with his presentation quickly. After the tour we ate at an open restaurant and partook of native food. It was an experience for all of us.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
We did not have enough time to see very much of Key West. It was interesting to compare the tourist scene of America to the tourist scene of foreign ports. Not a lot of difference, except they spoke more English and had nicer buildings. It was fun!

Pros: Free style dining and the courteous, friendly staff.

Cons: The limited meal selections.

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!
