Norwegian Sun Cruise Review to Caribbean - Southern


Helpful Votes

3 out of 5

excellent ports, average cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 3 years ago

The Sun was refurbished recently\, but looks tired and tawdry. Moving around the principal decks requires you to go through public rooms\, including restaurants\, which is awkward. The holiday decorations were cheap-looking and tasteless.
The public spaces are all supplied with piped muzak\, except when specific entertainment is offered. It is played too low to enjoy and too loud for a peaceful atmosphere!!! We hated it and were relieved to leave it behind.
On the positive side\, the cruise operation was flawless and the staff were wonderful - friendly and sincere.

Pros: staff were dedicated\, competent\, and thoughtful

Cons: trash elevator muzak everywhere\, not very audible but thoroughly irritating

Recommends Norwegian Sun? No.

Ship Quality
Medium size was pleasant but layout was not good and decor was ugly.
Food and Dining
Food was plentiful\, with good variety\, and it was possible to eat healthfully. Healthy choices were marked on menus. The breakfasts were particularly pleasant\, with delicious bacon\, muesli\, and fruit salad.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom had a most comfortable bed\, but the duvet was not really big enough to cover when the two single beds were pushed together to make a queen. The steward provided more blankets. We loved the well-fitted\, well-designed bathroom which had a terrific shower with excellent pressure and instant hot water. There were always lashings of thick\, crisp\, towels!
Service and Staff
The staff were just marvelous - unobtrusive\, thoughtful\, sincere\, and dedicated.
Pretty boring entertainment.
