Im interested in finding out if anyone knows where to find the NCL menu. Im going on an 11 night cruise on the Sun in December and can't seem to find a menu anywhere.

Also... I like to pick up a special food to bring home to family at each port (ex: I brought home vanilla from Mexico). Does anyone have any suggestions on what to bring back from the following ports?
I also like to try authentic local dishes while in port (like mofongo in Puerto Rico) any suggestions on what to try while in these ports?

Cartagena
Aruba
Curacao
St. Maarten
St. Thomas

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Hi Lindsey!
If you go to the NCL website, click on Learn about our cruises, then Our Ships, then choose Sun, and you can select dining info that lists all the restaurants. It also posts sample menus for all of the specialty restaurants.

In Cartagena you of course have to get some coffee beans! Curacao has blue curacao liqueur, and St. Marten has guavaberry rum.. I realize these are not exactly 'foods', but they are good souvenirs and representative of these places!
