7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 10, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

This was only our second cruise, so we don't have a lot to compare it with, but we thought the Sun was a handsome ship with great public spaces, with plenty to do (or not do). We were lucky and had great weather, great activities in port, and romantic evenings of music and dancing.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We did not go to the extra-charge specialty restaurants, so cannot comment on them. Large variety to select from at buffet and main restaurants; food ranged from average to very good. We liked the "freestyle" dining, and we were always seated right away. We enjoyed breakfast on the outdoor deck (11 aft) - less crowded than main buffet area. Discovered that the Sports Bar served wings and other snacks after 5:30. We are fans of tapas so we were expecting great things when we saw there was a Tapas Bar, but having only 4 selections on the menu was disappointing.


5 out of 5
Music for every taste at a variety of venues. We especially enjoyed the group (Flyer) who played most evenings at the Dazzles nightclub.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Every staff member we encountered was friendly, helpful and personable.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We aren't crazy about huge crowds, so we were happy with the fact that the Sun is a smaller ship (around 1900+ passengers). However, the two pools were smaller than we expected. The ship was spotless and in great condition.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our room (outside/window/forward) was comfortable and spotless. Bed and bedding was comfy. Plenty of storage space for the two of us. Shower was awesome - especially after a day of snorkeling!

Pros: Lots of variety in dining options, music and entertainment, things to do, etc.

Cons: Walking through the Casino (where smoking was allowed).

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!
