Norwegian Sun Carribean Cruise

Sail Date: October 14, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We picked Norwegian because we wanted free-style cruising. The more casual atmosphere and dining freedom appealed to us. However, for our next cruise I don't think we would choose to sacrifice the food and entertainment quality for what we got on this cruise.

Pros: The crew was very friendly and hospitable.

Cons: The food and the entertainment.

Recommends Norwegian Sun? No.

Ship Quality
The ship deck was fairly small. Not enough Deck Chairs.
Food and Dining
Quality was the biggest issue for me: Foods that would seem basic were not well done\, for example: Pizza was served with uncooked veggies on top\, Cheese cake -no matter where we ordered it- was awful in both taste and consistency\, Biscuits and Gravy in the restaurant was served with one unsplit \"small\" buiscuit sitting adjacent to a pool of plain gravey with two sausage LINKS(!)in the middle...enough said?

It was interesting to note that although coffee is supposed to be included\, when I ordered coffee at the casino bar\, the bartender informed me that there would be a charge since I was ordering at the bar- as opposed to going to the restaurant to get it self serve\, I suppose. There are many things they charge for to cover their costs\, I really think this is taking it a little too far. I did end up getting it for free when I informed him that the bartender the day before had not charged me. I suppose this was because the day before I ordered it AFTER I has paid for a beer.
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean and comfortable
Service and Staff
I don't think we met anyone who was not friendly and accommodating.
Ugh\, outside of the commedian for one night- who was quite funny\,- I'm not sure why they bothered with getting any outside intertainment. The Cruise Director and staff put on a far more entertaining show in the lounge every night with audience participation game shows. \"Boston Brian\" was hysterical and likely the only thing that I will remember.
