Norwegian Sun Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
A sister-ship to Norwegian Sky, but not a twin, Norwegian Sun—one of the first real “Freestyle” cruising ships built for Norwegian Cruise Line—entered service in 2001 with an additional deck, more accommodations with private balconies, and more specialty restaurants. Interiors are bright and cheerful although the decor is somewhat subdued when compared with fleetmates.
Norwegian Cruise Line hadn't introduced many new ships in awhile at the time Norwegian Sky was launched and Norwegian Sun was on the drawing board, but it didn't take long before they got the hang of it. With Freestyle cruising growing in popularity, the vessels moved into the forefront of the fleet with multiple restaurant choices, expansive casino, trendy spas, and more family- and kid-friendly facilities.
Rich wood tones and fabric colors prevail throughout. The Observation Lounge is a subdued spot for afternoon tea in a light, tropical setting with nothing to distract attention from the expansive views beyond the floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Internet café is large, and the nearby coffee bar is a delight. Sunshine pours into the atrium through an overhead skylight by day; at night it's the ship's glamorous hub of activity.
