What a week!
Norwegian Sun Cruise Review
Review summaryGreat cruise overall. NCL is my favorite cruise line but this ship needs a bit of work. The staff was nice but not personable. Our room steward was really good but we hardly saw him. I've read NCL is making these guys try and avoid the public. If this is true, that's crazy. I enjoy interacting with them. The cruise director was non existent. If she was around she really didn't interact with the guests. Our experience in Cagneys was not good. The food was subpar and the service was just as bad. Now the good/great stuff. We were on a cruise. The rooms were great. Ac worked perfect and our steward kept it perfect. (The bed was not super comfortable but when your exhausted it doesn't matter). The ship was spotless. The staff worked so hard to keep it perfect. For us, this was a special cruise. This was a bday cruise for me and my son. He turned 30 on Sept 17. We also knew he was going to propose to his girlfriend. That was a moment I will never forget. The staff at Moderno made sure it was special. Was the cruise perfect? No, but nothing is. It was a great vacation and I can't wait till my next cruise. I sat at the airport looking and planning the next one. Hubby said i was crazy, and he's right!!! HAPPY CRUISING EVERYONE!!😎
Food and Dining
Four Seasons Dining Room
This was hit or miss. Breakfast was good but 2 different times our over medium eggs were hard as a rock. The hash brown rounds are the BEST! It's one of the things I was looking forward to. *Negative was they were only in the dining room, not the buffet* Lunch and dinners were ok. Nothing to brag about.
Great Outdoors Cafe
The better of the buffets. Burgers and hotdogs were good. In all the dining rooms, try the pretzel rolls. They rock!
Probably one of the best bars. Good drinks and great service. We spent a good amount of time there.
The buffet needs work. I know this is a smaller ship but there are not enough choices and the food doesn't taste good. We were on the Bliss in April and they had a bigger selection but like the Sun, it was not good.
Great food and great staff. We celebrated my sons 30th birthday there. He also proposed to his girlfriend that night. The staff helped make the entire night so special. The salad bar was good. My son got anchovies and gagged on them. The waitress couldn't stop laughing at him.. we all just laughed. By far the best of the 2 specialty restaurants we ate at.
The Collection Art Gallery
My son loved this. He said the staff was helpful and friendly.
Typical cruise shopping. Nice stores with a friendly staff.
Hair And Beauty Salon
Didn't do an actual massage but had a teaser and WOW!! I should have done the hot stone massage but I was being cheap. The 2 teasers were great.
Sun Club Casino
Can only give stars. I'm not a smoker so I didnt like all of that smoke. The machines were tight 1 night and loose the next one. Love that place!
We went to Rock you Tonight. Though it's not a Broadway show, it was great. The singers and dancers looked and sounded great. Loved the show!
Loved this area. Quiet and peaceful. On the last day it was super windy. We stood outside and the wind took our breath away. It was so cool!!
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Always know, no vacation is perfect. This trip was not the best but we made the best of it. You are on vacation, enjoy it!!
