Western Caribbean aboard Norwegian Sun

Sail Date: January 25, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise ever. Not being sure what to expect, we really enjoyed the entire experience. From  first check in to final debarkation, the process was relatively easy. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly, the food was great, comfortable mid ship balcony room, and good shows. The only thing we found that was not very much fun was the lifeboat drill. It's hard to imagine getting 150 people inside one of those! We have enjoyed cruising on NCL and have put down a deposit for another cruise!

Cruise Photos

Ship Quality
Small ship but easy to learn where everything is.
Food and Dining
Speciality dining, especially Cagneys, waas excellent.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice view from our balcony arriving in port, beautiful sunrises and sunsets as well.
Service and Staff
Room steward was very friendly, waitstaff very attentive, Asst. Maitre D Fortunato Rebello was fantastic, checking on us at almost every evening meal!!
Did not get to see a lot of shows on board as we usually were eating later in the evening.
Onboard Activities
Lots to do if you didn't goashore,
Destinations and Excursions
The only port we did not care for was Belize, tour sponsors were rather pushy. Absolutely loved Costa Maya and Cozumel!
Tampa, Florida
Use the Parking Doctors for parking, reasonable rates, door to door service. Just call when you clear customs and meet them at the numbered poles out front.
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
Went to Little French Key on a snorkeling excursion, booked direct through their website. 2 drinks and a meal included. Check out their zoo.
Belize City, Belize
Shopping in the port is nice, look for the food carts to save some money, try the fried plantains.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Tropicante Restaurant will hold a table for you on the beach for 2 hours after your ship docks. Look them up and email the owner, Steve Uhl.
Cozumel, Mexico
Snorkeling at Mr Sanchos All Inclusive Beach Club is awesome!!!


Go outside the port area in Costa Maya for cheaper cab rates, always agree to the price in advance!
