Overall the ship was a comfortable ship to cruise on. It had an easy-going, relaxed and casual culture.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Love the "Freestyle" attitude of the ship with open dining, plently of resaurants to select from and very, very helpful and caring staff.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Typical cruise ship...kind of cheezy but fun. Many of the "entertainment" and workshops were centered around the cruise line's attempts to sell more crap to the tourists. Please no more Diamonds International and respesct my right NOT to want to buy a pair of Tanzanite earrings!

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff was always friendly and helpful but the limited English skills of the staff was often annoying and at times it was difficult to get a correct answer to a question.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The Sun is a smaller ship and subsquently the gym was small, crowded, and always filled with people. The shopping on the ship was also limited.
