Note: This review will consist of two parts. Part two will be posted Thursday evening.
Built in 2001, The Norwegian Sun is considered an older ship, however, once you board, you realize how beautiful and well taken care of each and every area of the ship feels and looks. You will board on deck six, and immediately, you will feel the comfort and tranquility of the Sun. Currently, the Sun is doing 10 and 11 day cruises from Miami to the Southern Caribbean, however, in April, she will move to Vancouver to do seven day Alaska cruises.
The Sun was an absolute joy to be on, a lot of surprises and places to relax, enjoy a drink as well as a very nice pool area with a live band. This ship continued to provide surprise after surprise with it’s decor, atmosphere and cleanliness. I sincerely was aghast with each new area I ventured. The theater on the Sun is small, however, it would be a great place to see a show due to its intimacy. There are places to sit and enjoy a drink in the back, or sit right up front and be almost on top of the talent!
This ship has a small atrium, yet it feels very spacious. Schedule a shore excursion, surf the web or enjoy the Champagne bar. Also, on the first day of your cruise, you can purchase all your drink packages in the atrium. One of the highlights of this ship, is the Windjammer bar. Here, you can enjoy a cigar and some tasting whisky. It is a private location with low traffic and a great atmosphere with light piano in the background. Just think of your first day on the cruise, after the hectic boarding process and hauling your luggage about, sitting, relaxing with a loved one, sipping a cold drink and listening to soft, subtle piano as you sail the sky blue waters. With just 2000 people on board, this ship will provide privacy, relaxation and a lifetime of memories. If this sounds good to you, give me a call. We will plan your next perfect cruise.
See you Thursday for part two.
