My brother and I sailed on the Norwegian Sun in May of 2018. It was a 3 night Bahama cruise. We sailed from Port Canaveral Cruise Port in Florida. She would be our second Norwegian Cruise Line cruise. Embarking was smooth and painless. We did not have a long wait and was on board in no time. She had a 3 deck atrium with gold trim. The carpets had swirls of blues and creams. The rich wood columns made the atrium look very elegant. Walking on board was a nice invite from the crew who were there to greet you, security and personal selling lanyards to spa information. The staff was very friendly. She was a small intimate ship.
We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 forward. Room 9025 was our stateroom. It was a roomy and cozy cabin. It had a king bed that converted to two twin beds which we had separated. There was an end table that separated our beds and lighting was on the mirror wall for a night light if needed. The decor was nice and modern, the furniture was in good shape but did show some signs of wear, the closet was good size and was stocked with plenty of hangers. There was a vanity desk with mirror and stool. It was also a console with drawers and storage area. A mini fridge was available and a hair dryer. The stateroom had plenty of area for storage and the beds were high enough to roll the empty luggage under for storage. The couch was a pull out bed that we did not use. The bathroom was decent, standard size, it had a shower, sink and toilet. There was plenty of soap and shampoo in the shower that was available if needed. The balcony had a table and two chairs and was a decent size. The stateroom was clean and our host was really attentive to our needs and kept us stocked with what we needed.
Recreation on board
The Norwegian Sun had a lot of options for recreation on board. You will find something for everyone on board! The activity program had several options for games and trivia along with theater shows. The ship also had shuffleboard, ping pong, basketball and volleyball court. The main pool area had two swimming pools and four hot tubs. Plenty of lounge chairs were available but does get busy on Sea Days. There is also a kiddie pool and a hot tub on deck 12. The ship also offers a library which had board games, cards and books for your leisure entertainment. The art gallery is available for all your art needs or if you just want to browse the ones on display around the ship. If it’s shopping your looking for there are shops on board with options from personal items, liquor, cigarettes, clothing, souvenirs and high and non high end jewelry! Do not forget to check out the Spa on board to get a nice relaxing service of nails, hair or massage! The ship also has a Fitness gym with bikes, treadmills, free weights, ellipticals and classes! The Casino on board offers tables and slots.
Dining and Bars:
The ship has many dining options available on board. Specialty dining is available for an extra charge and can be reserved prior to sailing in your reservation account online.
