We had a great time on this cruise. We had never been to South America so we did the back to back from Buenos Aires to Rio so we went to each port twice. My favorite port was Buzios, Brazil, but all the ports were nice, especially the ones where we could dock instead of tender. This was our 27th cruise with NCL and they did not disappoint. We had not been on the Sun for awhile, but the crew and the ship were fantastic! We had the dining and the beverage packages so we enjoyed the food and beverages immensely. Cagney's was our favorite, but we didn't have a bad meal the whole trip. The entertainment was good but we would have liked to have seen a comedian too instead of so many musical shows. Our only disappointment was not getting to take a cooking excursion that we signed up for in Buenos Aires. It was cancelled because of lack of participation. We had taken a similar cooking class in Mexico and had a fantastic time so we were upset to miss that.

The room was nice and spacious. Our steward was very nice and did a great job. We especially loved getting a different towel animal every night.

Santos (Sao Paulo)

We took a taxi to the other side and found some nice shopping and beach to spend the day.


We loved all of the shopping that was available right as you got off of the ship.
