So first of all - I thought I had zero expectations. I booked Norwegian Sun for the open bar but I quickly realized that got old quick. This was my partner and my first getaway after having our child and our overall experience was just okay. Here are my thoughts: Check in and getting on board was super easy so definitely a positive. Once we got on, we were able to go explore and get a drink and lunch. We quickly realized that they weren't a lot of entertainment for us (since we aren't dancers/clubby people) The one thing we were looking forward to was the comedy show, however it was scheduled the 2nd night during dinner time and our dinner took WAY too long at Seven Seas so we missed that. Our 3rd night, we saw it back again at 10:30pm the final night, however our specialty dinner didn't get done till 10:45pm so we missed the beginning. We were disappointed with the food on the ship. Buffet dinner was not appetizing and dessert kept running out. Sports bar - small menu it took forever to get the food or they forget it and then it is SUPER COLD by the time you receive it. Evening dinner was great and the hibachi was just average. We definitely had better hibachi for the same price. We noticed a handful of leaks on the ship (one at the sports bar and the other on deck 12) which made the carpet super wet and a total hazard. Our stateroom (picture window) was small but cozy. However our drain in our shower was not working which resulted to over spilling into the floor of the bathroom which was so annoying!! Great Stirrup - one of the islands I was so looking forward to visiting but as soon as we got there - boy it STUNK! It was so smelly from the pigs it was unbearable. As soon as I thought I got used to it - BAM you'd smell pig poop again. Was horrible. Bartenders were not that great and I felt they were just throwing liquor in a cup to get people to go away. A lot of the bartenders were annoyed by Day 2 on the ship. There was snarky comments that they were giving the guests. I don't blame them but you have an open bar that is what you get. I don't feel anything was communicated on how to leave - we couldn't hear the cruise director over the intercom because everything sounded muffled. If we didn't check our app we wouldn't have known what to do. I sprained my ankle on the stairs and went to the medical center to ask if they have a wrap they said they are closed and to come back in 6 hours after we depart or they'd have to charge me $75 for an emergency visit. I was a little pissed off - came back and she literally just got up and got me an ace bandage - I am like seriously?? You could have done this earlier. Also if you have your period, you have to go every where looking for tampons since the gift store doesn't open until the ship is moving. Frustrating. On the last night, in the middle of the night, our cabin started reeking of the smell of poop. It was so disgusting. Finally, disembark day - apparently my partner had been flagged to be stopped for a "random check." It was absolutely embarrassing on how they handled it and thought we were criminals getting escorted off the ship. We have traveled many times but that has never happened. Read Less

The A/c and toilet did not work in my room and several other peoples rooms on my floor for over a day. The Guest Services were not very helpful. The food and beverages were good and their staff was excellent. The ship did not seem to have their act together in that lots of things were advertised that did not occur or they were listed on a wrong day. The entertainment was excellent. The piano player was awesome. They sprayed your hands with sanitizer every time you entered an area with food. The free drinks added to the value of the cruise and the drinks were well made and readily available. The excursions were cheaper if you did not purchase them through the cruise. They have things marked down in the gift shop like you are getting a deal on jewelry or the artwork but when you check the internet it is still way overpriced. I was on this same ship one year prior and everything was excellent. Read Less

We decided on a quick weekend trip to celebrate my wife's birthday and still keep Grandma's babysitting commitment to a minimum. The only request I received from my better half was for it to be a "very relaxing" trip. The accommodations and the staff on the Norwegian Sun made this an easy request to fulfill. CABIN: We booked Stateroom 1203 which is an owners suite that I can honestly say is worth every penny. It offers a great flow with nice furnishings and finishes. The suite has a foyer with half bath. A living room with bar, TV, dining table, work desk and a large convertible sofa and an impressive view out over the front of the ship. A private bedroom with a TV and a nice reading chair next to a slider. The master bath offers a whirlpool tub with separate shower, dual sinks and a water closet. There is also enough storage between the closet and the built ins to comfortably take a week long cruise with a family of four. I like to keep the AC cold, so my wife really enjoyed the super comfy robes. The most impressive part of the cabin is the deck (this is not just a balcony). Three sliding glass doors open up to your private oasis that is large enough for two loungers with side tables, a table for four, and a generous sized Jacuzzi. And the views are breathtaking! It does get a bit windy when fully underway but enjoy the breeze and just use a heavier cup for your cocktail. SERVICE: With the suite we received top notch service from a Concierge (Gian), Butler (Rodwin) and Steward (Manuel). I thought going into the trip that this would be wasted on us, but I can honestly say each of these gentlemen made the trip truly special. Gian (Concierge) made sure our daily plans were aligned perfectly with everything we wanted to accomplish. He had us in prime seating for shows and we were treated like VIPs at all of the dining experiences. Rodwin (Butler) was constantly yet discretely making sure that all of our details where perfect in the suite and with any room service related requests. I never had a request take longer than 5 minutes to be fulfilled. I did not have those expectation levels but I appreciated the dedication to excellence. And finally Manuel (Steward) was always pleasant to chat with and kept the room in tip top shape. He also hooked us up with nightly towel animals even though that is not standard on this ship any longer. It's the little things right?! DINING: Day 1 Lunch - Cagney's: Excellent first impressions of our trip. We were escorted to the restaurant upon check in. The food was very good and the service top notch. Day 1 Dinner - Teppanyaki: Fun atmosphere with good food overall. The highlight was the chefs with the steak coming in a close second. Day 2 Breakfast - Great Outdoor Cafe: Buffet at the aft of the ship. Same offerings as inside but smaller lines and better views. Watch out for the gulls though! Day 2 Lunch - We stayed in one of the new Villas on Great Stirrup Cay and they had a private buffet that offered a great variety of delicious food. This new area is great and will only get better as they finish building it all out. All of the staff was very friendly and seemed to enjoy being stationed out there. Day 2 Dinner - Moderno: Food was good, but overall it just didn't have the same vibe as the other restaurants. The assistant waiters were a lot of fun and they saved the experience for us. Day 3 Breakfast - Breakfast in bed (brown chicken brown cow) Day 3 Lunch - On island in Nassau Day 3 Dinner - Cagney's: Wonderful! Best food item for myself was the cheese cake. Seriously I would take this exact vacation again for another bite. Day 4 Breakfast - Cagney's: Helluva way to end a trip. Food and service did not slip one bit even though I'm sure they were already thinking about the upcoming embarkation. SHORE EXCURSIONS: Mentioned above briefly, but not to the degree deserved, are the new VILLAS at GSC. The studios are open with the larger villas still in progress. The villas offer a great view of a private beach with ample loungers, umbrellas and floats at the ready. Each offers a private bathroom with shower, a TV, table and chairs, couch, and AIR CONDITIONING!!! They also have a nice sitting area on the front porch for relaxing with your beverage of choice under the ceiling fan. Did I mention the AC? The area comes with terrific bar service and an exclusive buffet. If you need to spend a little less on chotskies for the extended family at Nassau to make your budget work with this Villa experience, then Great Uncles be damned! This is the WOW factor you were hoping for when you saw private island on the website, trust me. EXTRAS: My wife had a swedish massage on the first day which really set the tone for the trip. She also took a yoga class that she enjoyed while I slept in! Read Less
