Hi there ! I just wanted to say that I REALLY agree with the sentiments about NCL and the ship Norwegian Sun in general. I just returned less than two weeks ago from the 7 day E Carib voyage, and in spite of some weather concerns, I was VERY happy with NCL and the service, the freestyle concept, and the Sun was a superbly maintained ship. They wanted to do some maint work and paint/varnish on my balcony cabin on one day, and I told them that was fine... but why? It all looked excellent to me. I have been on RCCL twice, HAL once, and really enjoyed NCL probably the most... and it was a great value, too. I'm now a solid fan of NCL. Good cruising, all !
