I am on this cruise - there is an active message board on the cruise critics website for this sailing - there are about 10 of us who have been chatting for the past two months - won't be able to help you too much the next week as i leave Vancouver for Miami later today to pick up the Sun for it's Panama canal part of the trip.
Our problem with NCL was in getting our documents which we finally did two days ago - seems they have revamped their ticketing system and have been having problems.
As for the cruise - don't know where you are from - haven't done this cruise but have lived on the west Coast all my life - From LA to Seattle -open water and little to see in scenery - Seattle - Victoria - Vancouver - what the trip is all about - lot's of scenery and things to do.
The Cruise critic message people are meeting on the Observation deck on Wednesday April 28, 2004 at 10:00AM - will attempt to bring there thread to the top.
Hope this helps and hope to meet up with you on the Sun.
