This was my first time cruising it wasn’t what I was expecting but I made the best of it I will say it’s all inclusive except if u want better food and more selections of space it caters to passengers spending more money. I don’t recommend this ship for kids wasn’t much for my little sister to do she is 11 so I recommend traveling adult only for this ship the excursions were terrible the fact the boat doesn’t dock at select ports the process of getting to destination was horrible and took half the day also if traveling don’t get the one going to Belize it’s faux and man manmade water was dirty and the shops were overly priced but Mexico was better it’s legit and boat actually docks there which was better the service was great food wasn’t the best except late night snack the musicals were the best I have seen omg must see performing arts at its best also formal night is just for photography sales there no party except white hot party this was best party ever spinnaker is the best lounge so stay on airplane mode and stay busy do not stay in cabin you will be disappointed Read Less

This was my first cruise and it was my first trip with just my daughter. Everything about the cruise was amazing. The crew were very friendly and helpful. The cabin was wonderful, always clean and everything we needed. The food was delicious and great verity of foods and the restaurants were always very clean and the staff was very attentive. All of the entertainment was awesome. Everyone was so talented. The comedian was the best, we couldn’t stop laughing. The trivia games were very challenging, but fun. The activities staff was great and very friendly. The pools were wonderful and it was not too hard to find two spots to lay by the pool and relax. The ports were beautiful with so much to see and do. We did the scuba diving excursion And we loved it. The instructor was very informative and made sure we were ready to go and the coral reef was so incredible. The shops were also great on board and off at the ports. Read Less

We booked a NCL cruise because it came highly recommended by past cruisers of NCL, past passengers on the Sun, as well as NCL crew that we are friends with. We love cruises because of the ease of travel as well as a general expectation of superb service. Unfortunately, we did not find this on our cruise on the Sun. Once we arrived at the terminal we were met by a porter who was extremely rude and said "for $10 I may not lose your bag on the pier" after we had tipped him $5 for 2 bags. We had a hard time getting answers after we booked on what our specialty dining package got us. We only found out that it was just 2 meals once we got to the check in desk and not 5 that our deal was supposed to have. Check in was smooth after our questions were answered. The waiting area for boarding was very hot and there was big containers that looked like they were for water, tea, lemonade, etc but were not filled. Once on board we were sent around the outside of the ship on deck 6 and we were trying to find the easiest way to get to the buffet but we couldn't find any staff that could point us in the right direction after the security staff checking guests onto the ship. Once we wandered around and found the buffet, a lot of the food was out and was not being refilled. This was right around 1pm while everyone was trying to eat. The line was not organized at all which led to confusion and some other passengers getting hostile with one another. We decided to go to a bar to let the craziness at the buffet die down but were only met with more confusion. This trend with the bar staff seemed to continue though out the entire cruise. We had the premium beverage package so we should have had access to basically all liquor on board. The bartenders seemed to have no idea what the Premium package consisted of verses what everyone else on board got. We were denied things that were clearly stated on the list of premium list multiple times. Along with the bar scenario, the idea of all passengers getting open bar ended up being pretty miserable (New Ship's all inclusive model). This led to all of the bars being impossible to get to especially the pool bars. It wasn't until the last day at sea that the crew started putting out more little cart bars to handle the load. We understand that the dining situation on NCL is different than the other cruise lines that we have experienced but the dinning experience we had, overall, was pretty bad. The servers we had in the Seven Seas dining room were all poor (Minus the guy we had the last night, Arjun). On 3 different occasions (1 dinner, 2 breakfasts) we waiting 10+ minutes to be approached by a waiter after being sat. Once being sat, it seemed that we were an annoyance for not having or entire order ready even before speaking to the server. We were told we could only have either the house red or white wine (despite having the beverage package) on 2 different nights. Food was never great in the main dining room. Either not hot or could tell had been under a warmer getting soggy for a while. We ate at Cagney's steakhouse one night. The porterhouse steak I had was actually not as good as the sirloin I had in the main dining room. Steak was ordered medium rare and came medium well/well done. It had already taken a long time to get our food so we didn't bother sending it back. We did, however, have a great experience at Teppanyaki. Food was great. Atmosphere was great and the service was the glimmer of good service we had onboard. Another disappointing experience was the pool and chairs on the pool deck. There was no where near enough chairs to support the amount of people that wanted chairs. People were going out and setting up towels on chairs before 7am and leaving them there all day and never showing up despite the literature saying that you cannot reserve chairs for longer than 30mins. When we asked the crew about this they said "there is nothing that we can do". There ended up being people laying on the ground and sitting against walls due to the lack of chairs. We ended up seeing multiple confrontations between passengers over chairs. The worst experience of the trip was the tendering situation to Harvest Caye. We were in group 7 to tender off the ship and were not about to get off the ship until 12:30p after being anchored since 7a. Once our tender group was called we still had to wait in the stair case on the way down to Deck 3 for 45 mins. Once we were on the island (1:30p) everything was so crazy expensive ($10 for a bottle of beer on the beach from an approved vendor). We were told that the last tender back was at 5:30p so we arrived back to the tender pier at 4:30p to make sure we had plenty of time. We were met with a line that weaved through the entire shopping village area. We ended up waiting a total of 55 minutes to get onto a tender back to the boat. This is absolutely insane and the tender situation definitely ruined our experience in Harvest Caye. Finally, our flights were booked through NCL and our flight down was fine arriving in MIA around 10a. Our flight back however was booked for 5pm out of FLL. With the last time to disembark being 9am, we were left to sit in the waiting area of the airport all day waiting for a flight. Once our flight was assigned, I reached out to NCL to see if we could get our flight moved up to a sooner time but were told that it wasn't possible even though Delta's website showing plenty of availability for the same price on earlier flights. The entire experience with NCL was super disappointing because we had such high hopes for cruising a new cruise line. What is the most disappointing is that the ship (Sun) was in amazing condition. We loved how clean and updated the ship and staterooms (Balcony) were as well. The layout of the ship was very nice as well as the lounges being inviting and fun atmospheres. The Great Outdoors Dining area is an awesome feature where we spent a lot of time. The service on board, however, dwarfed all of these nice amenities. It just seemed that no one in the crew had any idea what was going and that there was mass confusion at all times and in result led to us feeling that we were an afterthought or annoyance to the crew.
