Nice 1st cruise but the cigarette and marijuana smoke was disgusting
"This was our first cruise and we were celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We decided to bring our three children who are teenagers. The embarkation was fast and went smoothly. The cabins were clean and the..."Read More

We first sailed on the Sun in 2010...The ship is an older one (2000 I believe) but the upgrade in 2018 really made the ship look new. We originally had a family ocean-view but bid $140 (x2) for an upgrade and got a balcony two days before we sailed! I also bid on a mini-suite but did not get it sadly. The bidding game is kinda fun! Getting on the ship was the fastest we ever experienced! ...

We have exclusively sailed Disney Cruise Line. We wanted to sail during Thanksgiving week and DCL was very expensive for the same itinerary and ports (minus Grand Bahama). NCL was for the right price and decided to give it a try. It seems that NCL's schtick is Free at Sea. We booked a balcony cabin which allowed you to choose all Free at Sea offers. This meant we would receive (for 1st and 2nd ...

I chose this cruise because of the perks and the price. The perks were nice, but as for the food, it was definitely below my cruise standards. The specialty restaurants- The Cagney Steak House burnt my lamb chop, and the sides were sub par. The Moderno Brazilian Restaurant was excellent and should not be missed. The buffet was very limited and very poor selections. My dininig rooms selections ...

Point off for this eval format, the smell in the room, and the room steward. Is this what Norwegian is doing now instead of a REAL eval of your cruise paid for by your hard-earned money?? That's so cheap, and very low on the customer service side of things. Makes me want to decrease my rating. The cabin was great, room 9078, it's Aft facing. It has a coffee pot and bathtub. Had two robes and ...

Had issues on day one and they just haunted my girlfriend and I throughout our trip. A paid for drink package, that we had ample proof of.( email from NCL and our itemized reservation.) Couldn’t get it on our room card at the check in, computer issues were blamed and we were told to see Guest Services once onboard the ship. Here’s where it starts to unravel, gentleman we dealt with was virtually a ...

This was my first cruise. My wife booked this to celebrate our 35th anniversary. I was expecting an upscale experience from Norwegian compared to the lower cost lines. Our first experience was a thirty minute wait to get a drink. I assumed that this was early crowds just arriving but the wait times didn't really get much better. We spent some time in the pool area but left because the sound ...

We had been cruising with Carnival and wanted to try a different line thinking higher price = better experience. The ship was smaller than I expected and that is on me, I should have read the reviews before booking. The complimentary food was not as good as Carnival but the specialty dining was pretty good, just pricey. The free drinks were amazing of course, but you better get them before ...

We chose a short 5 day cruise with 2 beach stops to relax after a 6 month chemo. Treatment. We chose an inside cabin which we only did once before( and never again ) to keep costs down. Embarkation was smooth but not the seas that first night. To quote george costanza "the seas were angry my friend", rocking and rolling. This added to the pleasure of an inside cabin. Our first beach day was ...

I chose this ship, because it is one of the best in class for service and friendless. (there are only two in class: The Sky & The Sun). The better dance choice is The NCL Sun, if you like live music and great dance floors, it is better on the Sun than on the Sky. The Latin band, 440 duo, is an excellent band, I cruised three times over the last two months just to go back and party with them, ...

The food was horrible, service was not great, front desk was no help at all. The boat was rocking more than any boat I ever been on the first and last night. When I went to the front desk in the middle of the night to get water because my girlfriend was throwing up from all the rocking they sent me to the back of the ship. Not to mention water isn't included on your all you can drink package, it ...
