Written on: 15/09/2009

Enjoyed the cruise on Norwegian Sun - only way to see Alaska Food was great
Didnt like all the sales of Art Diamonds etc Tours were cheaper if booked yourself ashore as too the transfer to airport, over charged 12 dollars each per day having already tipped staff.Not enough entertainment when sailing… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/10/2008 by lordbaron (1 review written)

Getting on and off the ship was very smooth. The staff on this ship is very friendly and they work very hard. I didn't have one problem with any member of the staff on our cruise. The Kids Club was awesome and our son had the time of his life. The staff should all get raises for there hard work with the kids. Nice ship and tons of things to do. I would say the food in the Garden Cafe was substandard. Very strange choices and it was just OK. We had some good meals in the cover charge… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/09/2008

Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and would not hesitate to recommend it. I would actually like to do it again, without my camera! Was a little disappointed with stateroom + balcony, but it was clean and perfectly adequate - guess I had expected a little more luxury in the sitting area and the ensuite. Was surprised at the wide age range. A daily 'gratuity' is added to each person's account. It does take the hassle out of 'tipping'. I don't expect the crew are on high wages, they work long… Read Full Review

I would not hesitate to recommend the Norwegian Sun(Alaska cruise) to anyone - young, old, handicapped or not - there is something for everyone at anytime of the day. Food choices were incredible and service amazingly good considering there are over 60 nationalities of crew members… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/06/2008 by anikchantal (1 review written)

Although, I enjoyed my first cruise, I would have like to see more shows during the day. For example, when we were sailing all day, it would have been nice to catch a show in the afternoon or late in the morning. Bingo, yoga, spinning classes would be a plus if you did not have to pay extra money. Restaurants with a cover charge was a negative point for me. At the price, we pay for the cruise, a steak dinner, a seafood platter or an Italian fiesta would have been a plus. Paying for soft… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/06/2008 by Susan Blanford (1 review written)

Drink prices carry 15% gratuity even though you are charged 10$ per day per passenger. Most passengers like ourselves disputed this and settled on a lower charge. I very much doubt if anyone pays the full cost as it is very very expensive on the ship… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/03/2008 by Dona Harjung (1 review written)

From the time we got on the bus to the ship it was a nightmare. The bus was 2hrs late. We were taken to a convention center with everyone else. No reason were given. No place to sit. No food or water for the next 4 hours. We were in our state room by 1am. The next week was nothing but one confusing thing after another. The entire ship was angry. We missed an entire day at sea… Read Full Review

If you don't like the formality that is associated with a cruise, then this is the cruise for you. Do what you want and when you want. If you want to dress for dinner then fine but the choice is yours… Read Full Review

“NCL Cruises, Norwegian Sun - We boarded in Vancouver...”

Written on: 18/06/2005 by dewdropin (1 review written)

NCL Cruises, Norwegian Sun - We boarded in Vancouver and felt every step was very efficient. There were people at the elevators and staircases directing us so we did not feel overwhelmed. They had upgraded our room and we were situated on deck 11. The Outdoor Cafe is very popular but it is hectic. We preferred eat in the Seven Seas. We ate most of our meals there. It was fine dining with excellent service. We also had purchased the aniversary package. That is well worth the money. If you buy 5… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/06/2009 by johnyg (1 review written)

We were on the Alaska Cruise on May 10th. 2009 to May 17th. 2009 with this Norwegian Sun. It was a fantastic trip. My wife & myself were really liked it ! We enjoyed watching the show every night; they were beautiful. The programs on ship were non-stopped and it did not make us felt boring at all.
One thing I must mention is that during the karoake night, they were not able to play with my own karoake disc in DVD or VCD. They can only play CDG of their own. I hope they will buy a DVD karaoke… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/04/2008 by poochie22 (1 review written)

First let me say that I decided to go on the New Norwegian Gem based on past positive experiences with NCL cruises. I've been on the Dawn twice and the Spirit twice also. Being the Gem was "brand new" I decided that this would be a best bet! However I do have a few disappointments. Getting on the ship went fairly smooth as we were considered "latitudes" members. But I will tell you that you will have to wait even though they say you will board first. It was a long process to finally get on… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/10/2006 by william paddock (1 review written)

I gave back my latitudes card, as it served no purpose at all. The Norwegian Sun NCL cruise ship was awfully laid out. The buffet food was awful. The life boat drill made no allowance for elderly and handicapped people. They had people climbing stairs that should not have been. The stories from other passengers about problems on this ship were awful. This my last trip on NCL. I have been on 6 other cruises, and I have never had these problems. I only had one other cruise with NCL, and that was… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/09/2006 by webtrendz (1 review written)

We had a lovely time on the Norwegian Sun NCL Western Caribbean Cruise. We would go again when we can afford it. We got to see the Caribbean from the sea, as well as do excursions. The wife had a great time in the salon as well as the gym, and for me I had a great time at the bar, and the entertainment was really good… Read Full Review
