Hot Tubs

5 out of 5

The hot tubs were the perfect temperature they were never crowded and as an added bonus they are situated next to a wooden railing that you can place your drink on while you're in the hot tub

Stardust Lounge

5 out of 5

I love this theater it's rather small compared to other theaters on other ships but to me it's very comfortable and very quaint and it is never crowded and the Productions that you see in this venue are always top notch

Children's Programs

No children with me

Cabin was good size...porthole was clean..everything i needed was there and it was an easy walk to get to an elevator

Ship tip

The Norwegian Sun is one of the smallest ships from any Cruise Line and as such it does not have all of the activities you would find on the larger ships there is no water slide there is no go kart track there is no mini golf there is no rock climbing wall this ship is for those seeking to be mildly active an extremely restful so make sure you understand that before you book a cruise on this ship because it's not fair if you do not do your research before you book and expect something out of the Norwegian Sun that it is not meant to be

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
This was the embarkation port I never have a problem getting around this port and finding where I need to go

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
This was my first time at this port and this became my favorite port I love the entertainment the shopping the restaurants in the activities they're all set up in like a village setting as soon as you get off of the ship they have Dolphins they have flamingos they have an Aviary and they have a pool with a swim-up bar along with many restaurants and stores this is the perfect port in my opinion

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Cozumel is a very nice port lots to see and do but I highly suggest doing an Excursion there are many excursions at this port that will give you the greatest time of your life


5 out of 5
Absolutely perfect it took 10 minutes from the time I left my cabin until the time I was outside of the Port Terminal
