Norwegian Sun Western Carib Cruise 1/11/15

Sail Date: January 11, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Had a great time on this cruise.  We ported at Roatan Honduras, Belize City, Costa Maya and Cozumel.  WE did some ship excursions and other times we went on our own in the ports. The food was great at the 2 main Dining Rooms.  We also did the Hibachi Grill one nite.  Good entertainment every nite.  The Sun looks small when along side the newer Norwegian ships, but it offered all we needed for an enjoyable vacation.  My 2 yo grandson had a ball in the Kiddie pool.

Ship Quality
older ship but in good shape. There was an odor by most of the public bathrooms.
Food and Dining
all food whether breakfast, lunch or dinner was good. bad point they wouldn't give vanilla soft ice cream at the crepe machine area.
Service and Staff
had 1 bad waitress. She brought the wrong beverages and starters. When we kept asking for what we ordered she developed an attitude. The management replaced her with a very competent waitress and saved our supper time. 99% were great. They kept acknowledging my 23 yo grandson by name everytime they saw him. made his and my day.
really oved the comedian.
Children's Programs didn't attend any
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
took cave tubing in Belize. had a great time with great guides.
Cabin / Stateroom
very roomy
Tampa, Florida
didn't site see here
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
Diamond International shopping. Couldn't find a Coxen Hole T-shirt on Island. Get a Taxi to beach club off ship. save $30 to $40 per person.
Belize City, Belize
5 mile trip to land. Cave tubing was great.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
the beach and pool chairs around Senor Frog and Carlos & Chrlies are free. No charge to use pool or beach.
Cozumel, Mexico
miles of shopping right off ship. Get a Mayan ruin, shopping and beach trip in port for 30% of cruise ship price.


Have to go to the end of the ship for vanilla ice cream. won't serve it at regular crepe and ice cream station.
