7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 25, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 6303
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The cruise itself was good.  The selection of food in the two main dining rooms was limited and repetitious. We have had much better food on other cruises (with other carriers). The casinos were so smoky I could not stay in them.  On some cruises there is no smoking. The entertainment except for the comedian was very good.  One comedian was unfunny and the other was too risque for the 7pm showing where children were present.

Staff were courteous and responsive.  Wait staff were attentive and friendly as were all the staff we encountered.
