Very enjoyable time!

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The overall layout was very good. We found our way around with little problem after the first day. We had easy access to the departure sites for touring the ports of call.

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

Cons: The limited meal selections.

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!

Ship Quality
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
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.
Service and Staff
We had some wonderful staff, including Pluto, Melodina, and Luciano. They were friendly, professional, and very helpful. And they were fun to be around.
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.
Food and Dining
There could have been more choices on the dinner menu, but most food was good.
Belize City, Belize
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
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!
Cozumel, Mexico
We ate at Margaritaville, and enjoyed it. We just shopped in the stores and then returned to the ship.
Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala
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.
