Southern Carib. cruise on NCL Sun

Sail Date: March 06, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The 11 days went very quickly.  The weather was great!  We loved the smaller ship.  All crew were extremely friendly and helpful.  The service was excellant. The food was very good in the two main dining rooms. The Garden cafe was also very good.  I would rate this cruise 0n a scale of 1-10, ten being the best, a 10!  Our stateroom was much bigger than we expected and appointed very nicely, bright and cheery.  The porthole was huge!  Then entertainment was topnotch.  We even won at Bingo.  We have traveld on two other NCL ships which were much bigger but have decided that we prefer the SUN as opposed to the larger NCL ships.  We have cruised often in the Carribean so now we seldom get off the ship while it is in port.  We enjoy having the ship to ourselves while everyone else is touring.  Great time for us to catch up on our reading, sunning and lounging.  When you are retired as we are you need a break from your busy schedule to pamper yourselves.  They have a wonderful spa which we spent some time visiting.

There were never any lines for anything except being first in line for the 7:30 show so that we could get our same seats in the 2nd row every night.
