Norwegian Sun is one of two Sun-class ships with Norwegian Cruise Line, and entered service in 2001. The mid-sized vessel holds 1,936 guests and sails to Alaska, the Caribbean, South America, and the Mexican Riviera. On the Sun’s longer itineraries, you’ll find more couples and families with grown kids or adult groups on most sailings. However, the ship will add new Cuban itineraries in 2018, shorter 4-night voyages that may be perfect for adventurous cruisers looking to experience a culture that has not been easy for Americans to access.

Kids and adults alike will find fun amenities on the ship, like the Splashes kids pool, theater productions, the spa, and video arcade. Since it is a mid-sized vessel, it’s comfortable for both those who are used to smaller ships, and those who love the space a larger ship usually offers. Guests will enjoy comedians that tickle their funny bone, variety shows by the Norwegian Show Band, and World Beat, a collection of percussion songs and dances from around the globe. Adults will appreciate Rock You Tonight with songs from Queen, Journey, and The Who, as well as What The World Needs Now; a musical celebration of Burt Bacharach. There are plenty of activities aboard Norwegian Sun; Kids can make friends in the youth clubs onboard (which are divided into several spaces by age), and guests of all ages can test their video gaming skills at the arcade, and their real-life gaming skills at the volleyball and basketball courts and golf driving net. Other offerings include onboard comedians, the percussion around the world show, and outdoor swimming pools.

For dinner, indulge in the complimentary tapas bar, the Great Outdoors Cafe, and Sports Bar offering up burgers, fish and chips, and other casual fare. If you want to splurge, there are also specialty venues to choose from like Cagney’s Steakhouse, Italian restaurant La Cucina, French eatery Le Bistro, and the Japanese hibachi restaurant Teppanyaki. For a steakhouse experience that’s not the American norm, try Moderno Churrascaria, a Brazilian steakhouse serving up skewers of slow-roasted meats. When you’re craving something sweet, the Atrium Cafe is a perfect destination offering cupcakes, French macaroons, and chocolate pralines.

Cruisers have a number of balcony and oceanview cabins to choose from with different configurations, suitable for couples to groups of five. At the most cost-effective price point, there are four types of interior cabins, ranging from 145 to 191 square feet and accommodating two to five guests. If you need more room or want to splurge, Norwegian Sun offers three types of suites, all of which have balconies, bathtubs, and accommodate four people, ranging from 443 to 828 square feet. There are also three types of mini-suites which have balconies and accommodate four people as well, ranging from 322 to 387 square feet.

Fascinating places to see by phill002

The overall cruise experience was very good. We enjoyed our stateroom, the dining facilities, and the attention of the excellent crew and staff. The fitness and spa facilities were first-rate. The entertainment options were varied in quality and mostly too loud for our taste. The only group we really enjoyed was the classical Atlantis string trio, and we attended at least a dozen of their performances. The Flamenco and Tango performances were also very good.

This was our 50th wedding anniversary cruise and the rating does not show how much we enjoyed our cruise. The penguins were a fantastic addition. The crew remembered our anniversary and sent a cake. We will cruise with NCL again

15 Night Cuba & Southern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) by vicstictok

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship is nice. Food just ok, they want you to go the the pricey restaurants. This was my first time on NCL (I'm Diamond on Royal Caribbean). We went for the great itinerary with Havana & Key West. That did not disappoint. Don't think I will be back on NCL. Just too many things that they miss the mark on (food, entertainment, even the sports bar has many TV's but just has them on the same thing MOSTLY SOCCER & HOCKEY) Employees were all very nice though.

Please review menus! Will definitely use Norwegian again, maybe a slightly larger ship if the right ports of call for us. (Wanted another transatlantic from Florida to Southampton....will see what 2020 brings....didn't want Barcelona, just a personal choice!) Already starting to look at future cruises!

If you like sushi or Japanese dishes try the dinning room on deck 12. Good price and good food. Be sure and visit deck 13 just once to get a wonderful view from the top, top deck.

Popcorn in the Sports Bar, Las Ramblas in Deck 12, hidden gem - tapas bar. Take the train from the airport - quick, convenient and cheaper than shuttles or taxis.

Moderno was a cool restaurant to visit, unique way of serving or offering "all the menu" as they would bring pieces to your table and you could say yes or decline the meat etc. I've never done that anywhere before, and thought it was a nice way of sampling all the things on the menu!
