Round the Horn
Norwegian Sun Cruise Review to South America
This itinerary was fantastic and our most scenic cruise. The Chilean coast is stunning with vistas of snow covered mountains, glaciers, and other dramatic scenery. The NCL Sun was large enough to have a reasonable range of activities while small enough to get "up close and personal" with the coastline.
Embarkation and debarkation were seamless and efficient. The cabin, restaurant and other staff members with whom we interacted were great.
The downside of the trip was that both my wife and I came down with the flu about halfway through the cruise and our activities were restricted. The medical care was excellent, though, and we were in much better shape after a couple of days. (Make sure that you have insurance for medical expenses.)
The main dining rooms served the same menus, so there was little, if any, difference between the dining experiences there. The basic menu was varied daily with special meals being available. Good quality, but after a few days, the menu repeated. (I guess that NCL is on a 7-day menu plan.). The service was very good, in general.
We visited three specialty restaurants, with Cagney's Steakhouse being our favorite. (Nicoletta provided great service.) The French restaurant did not live up to our expectations.
I can recommend this cruise to anyone looking for a unique adventure.
