Sounds like someone did not do their homework. If you have been on 7+ cruises you should know how to shop for a cruise line's best price by now, if not shame on you. It sounds like once you found out how much more you paid that was when you began finding things wrong. Looks like sour grapes. We have been on the Sun a few times and always found it to be very nice. Not the best but far from the worst ship. Try a Carnival ship sometime and tell me how bad the Sun is.
