another great cruise aboard NCL Sun

Sail Date: April 05, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

We just got back from 7 night cruise aboard NCL Sun.  The ship was a little "aged" since it's been running for a while.  The sea was very calm at this time of the year (April, 2015) compared with our other cruises (the sea with NCL Jewel leaving from NYC in Nov 2013 was more choppy).  The 4 island stops and shore excursions were very fantastic and well planned.  The daily programs were really good, had something to do for all ages.  The complimentary dining were good, nothing special though.  We enjoyed this cruise.

Arrived Tampa a day early and stayed at Best Western (free airport shuttle). $10/pp shuttle to cruise port.
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
Gumbalina Park was fun for all, esp pictures with monkeys on our shoulders and macaws on our arms
Belize City, Belize
Beach Day excursion with tender boats directly to the private island.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Chacchoben Mayan Ruins was magnificent to see and experience.
Cozumel, Mexico
Busiest port and lots of excursions. We did Fly High Zip lines there (first zipline experience) and really enjoyed this man-made, tower to tower zips.


Tips: Book cruise port to airport/hotel transfer ahead of time inland, instead of on the cruise, because they'll charge double.
