Cruise on Norwegian Sun

Sail Date: April 12, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This must be the friendliest staff and crew that we have ever sailed on any past cruise or cruise line. We were constantly greeted with smiles and welcoming comments.  They even rolled out a real red carpet with entertainment greeting US back to the ship when returning from shore excursions. It was a fun time for everyone of all ages. We enjoyed the casual dining along with specialty restaurants. Entertainment was professionally done as well. We would highly recommend this ship and staff. Unfortunately, this ship will now be doing Alaskan itineraries, bit we understand the Star will replace it for the Western Caribbean.

Ship Quality
Very clean and well maintained for an older ship.
Food and Dining
Good selection of meals in all dining areas, specialty restaurants and buffet.
Service and Staff
Without doubt this ship has the friendliest staff of any cruise line.
Ships performers were outstanding as were the professional comics and musicians
Children's Programs NA
Onboard Activities
There was something for everyone whether you wanted to participate or just watch
Destinations and Excursions
Belize and Roatan/Honduras were new ports for us and we enjoyed both ad wrll as Costa Maya and Cozumel. Excursions were well organized.
Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was very clean with abundant storage for everything. Plenty of room under the bed for your suitcases so there's no clutter. However, the bathroom is a little cramped and you constantly battle the shower curtain trying to wash you.
Tampa, Florida
We were in Tampa prior to the cruise to attend the NCAA Women's Basketball Final Four Tournament so we got to enjoy the activities surrounding this event. on our own we toured the Tampa area's main attractions. There is empty to do for any interests.
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
The island highlights excursion is well worth the cost.
Belize City, Belize
We recommend the Belize highlights and river ride excursion. Excellent guides.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Good opportunity to negotiate price on the port shopping center. Mayan ruins are good if you hadn't seen any before.
Cozumel, Mexico
Visit the more famous Mayan Ruins from Cozumel.


The only "disappointment" on this ship was Las Rambas Lounge for tapas. They had a very limited selections of foods. We would not recommend wasting time here if you are looking for a good tapas experience.
