Verified Review
7 Night Alaska Glacier Bay Northbound (Vancouver To Seward)
Sail Date: July 20, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 0308
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Food quality on the Sun not up to the experience on the NCL ships Spirit and Dawn.  Garden Cafe only has one side open, vice two on the other ships, leading to mass crowding.  Not enough staff making and serving pizzas and the choices were limited - cheese and pepperoni.  The evening entertainment shows were weak especially the Flashback4.  The Ship's singers and dancers were good.

For an Alaska cruise, they did not serve crab legs at all - major disappointment!

Ship Tip

Do not take it for an Alaskan cruise, NCL Sun is too small. Heard good things about Princess and Celebrity ships in towns we visited from their passengers.
