Review summary

Overall we enjoyed the cruise. We really liked the 14 days and having so many days at sea to relax and enjoy the ship/activities onboard. It was nice to have the Port export onboard to explain what was available in each port. Better maps should have been provided in his presentations and by the cruise line to give to passengers before getting into the ports.


We were very disappointed in the gift shop on the NCL Sun. Terrible offerings if any for Cape Horn items. Photo gallery only had an Alaskan Photo album for sale none with South America. Again, very disappointing and unacceptable for such a Bucket List type cruise.


We enjoyed the ship specialty restaurants, our cabin and public areas. All the public dining dining rooms were very nice also.

All service in restaurants, bars, shops, cabin stewards, internet café, front desk area, Cruise Next Experts were all very courteous and eager to please!!!!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We loved the location and size of our cabin. We actually had a picture window w/o obstructed view. The only negative was when they had to lower the anchors when near port(tendering) it was very noisy.

Ship tip

We really enjoyed the way the Italian Specialty restaurant was set up for seating/views. Excellent service and food!
