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.

Awesome Family Trup by tonda428

This was a last minute trip for my brother's and son's birthdays. 10 of my family members went and we had an amazing time. Some of the food in the dining room didn't seem appealing on the menu but we tried it and it was awesome. Food was great. All you can drink was a big hit. It was a fun, relaxing and memorable trip. We will cruise this ship again.

Great Cruise by JayandFamily

Embarking and departing the ship was most convenient and expeditious. Our room and ship was very clean and organized. Since we prefer to eat in a sit down environment, there was no wait in the dining areas for any of our meals and the food was very good. The shows were very entertaining. The ports were just what interested us.

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!

Read the reviews and pay attention to what they say especially on cruise critic and research the cruise line you are going to go on and before booking it read the current reviews

We had our breakfast each morning in the restaurant on the bar side. It was much quieter and so much more pleasant and always seats were available. It was like a hidden gem!
