Review summary

We boarded the Sun in Seward, embarkation was easy. Just a note, this was our first cruise since NCL's water ban. They have placed containers at the entrance to discard all drinkable fluids as the put it. They checked everything and made folks discard water bottles with any water at all in it.


 We had beautiful weather the entire trip. The ship is starting to show wear and tear, nothing drastic just needed repairs in the theater, some seats were at a downward angle very uncomfortable. Nothing dry dock won't fix. 


Food: buffet, well buffet food nothing great nothing really terrible. The omelette guys in the morning did a great job. 


Dining room, the food was pretty good service was ok.  


La Cucina, food was good service was good but it is a specialty restaurant 

 Morderno, our favorite restaurant on board ship. Good food with great service, but it is a specialty restaurant.


overall it was a very enjoyable cruise, the staff were kind.
