Norwegian Sun

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Ship: Norwegian Sun

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Review Summary

The Sun was refurbished recently\, but looks tired and tawdry. Moving around the principal decks requires you to go through public rooms\, including restaurants\, which is awkward. The holiday decorations were cheap-looking and tasteless. The public spaces are all supplied with piped muzak\, except when specific entertainment is offered. It is played too low to enjoy and too loud for a peaceful atmosphere!!! We hated it and were relieved to leave it behind. On the positive side\, the cruise operation was flawless and the staff were wonderful - friendly and sincere.

Pretty boring entertainment.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff were just marvelous - unobtrusive\, thoughtful\, sincere\, and dedicated.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Medium size was pleasant but layout was not good and decor was ugly.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our stateroom had a most comfortable bed\, but the duvet was not really big enough to cover when the two single beds were pushed together to make a queen. The steward provided more blankets. We loved the well-fitted\, well-designed bathroom which had a terrific shower with excellent pressure and instant hot water. There were always lashings of thick\, crisp\, towels!

Pros: staff were dedicated\, competent\, and thoughtful

Cons: trash elevator muzak everywhere\, not very audible but thoroughly irritating

Recommends Norwegian Sun? No.
