7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 12, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 9141
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

There was a horrible sewerage smell on deck 9 when we boarded...and in fact our friends room got flooded out on the 2nd day.  Norwegian were very wonderful to them...they got a balcony cabin, two bottles of wine, $100 credit, and free eating at the French specialty restaurant!  Thumbs up to Norwegian for making a bad situation into a special vacation for my friends! is a smaller and older boat - but we had a wonderful time.  I won big time in the casino....the first time that I have ever won on a cruise ship.  The shows were great and the martini tasting was awesome!

All in all, I would highly recommend NCL.  It was my first trip on this line and I had a wonderful time.

Ship Tip

I highly recommend the martini tasting and the game "name that tune"....we had a blast! The smoked salmon was awesome for breakfast. The French restaurant was well worth it.
