Review summary

Very few variety from day to day in the main dining, did not go to any of the specialty rest and my husband and I found our selves wanting to go to the buffets more than the main dining rooms. The lack of detail and attention from the staff in the main dining room was not all there. The ship was not at full capacity, therefore thought the treatment towards those of us that were on the ship would be spectacular, but it seemed like the staff was tired and ready for a time off. If you like small ships, not too many activities, then Norwegian Sun is the ship for you.

The ship is outdated. Spa and fitness/gym area is very small. Lots of hot tubs all around the ship. Two pools. No rock climbing.

Entertainment

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The staff tries to keep up with the cleanliness, but there are some areas that just need to be looked at and replaced. Example the mirror in the bathroom of the cabin was rusty all around the edges.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Mirror in the bathroom of the cabin was rusty all around the edges. Cabin is smaller than the norm. Comparing with other cruise line (Carnival, Royal and Princess)

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

When the ship is arriving to the island it looks like a deserted island, but once on the island it's different and the locals are ready for the tourist.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Did not like the fact we were not disembarking directly on the island, the process took over 45 mins and it limited our time even more at Cozumel.
