The cruise was great. We had some GREAT shore excursions. Food was just okay on the ship. Most of the Norwegian Sun staff were really good. A few that really stood out were: Ohoy (AKA Chips Ahoy or Tom Cruise) from the Sports Bar on 11 and Sy (Syaifula) from the same bar. Excellent bar tenders and Ohoy was VERY entertaining. Made you laugh constantly! Sy remembered our name after the first visit and what we drank. I would highly recommend this bar. Also, our room steward, Amiel Alameda was very friendly and thorough. The on-board activities were okay. The comedian at night (Tim Kaminchi) was EXCELLENT and so was the group "Oh What a Night" who did the tribute to Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons were also very good. Rest of the night time entertainment was just okay. The check-in process was TERRIBLE. Took us over 2 1/2 hours to check-in to get on-board. Computers went down 3 times. It also seemed like we spent a LOT of time standing in lines while on board. Really appreciated all the hand sanitizers throughout the ship. Our room was very good...thanks to our agent, Robert Cook. He gave us really good recommendations on shore excursions and various things about the ship. I would highly recommend using Robert Cook. Very easy to work with and very thorough. Booking the cruise thru Robert was very easy. Thank you! Over all, it was a great cruise though and I would highly recommend it.
