Like the midnight sun casting a rich, warm glow over everything you see, the Norwegian Sun will brighten your long awaited holiday, leaving you with gauzy memories wrapped in golden light and happy days. One of the Norwegian Cruise Line’s first and most innovative cruise ships, the Norwegian Sun was built to embody the NCL’s “Freestyle Cruising” concept which allows passengers to take in all that this fantastic cruise ship has to offer. With a truly astonishing array of dining options, activities, and much more, the Norwegian Sun is the perfect choice if you’re looking for a laid-back cruise which can be as relaxing or exciting as you desire. A 2011 refurbishment has left the ship in the best condition of its career, with all-new decor (plenty of bright, cheerful colours to keep you smiling), spacious suites, and a crew dedicated to giving you the cruise of a lifetime.

Having received rave reviews from passengers and critics alike throughout its time on the NCL fleet, the Norwegian Sun remains a top choice for experienced and first-time cruise passengers. The ship features flexible, affordable accommodation for everyone (whether they’re single travellers or large families) and so many things to do that your only struggle will be deciding how to spend your day! The Norwegian Sun also has a diverse cruising schedule, with stops including the Caribbean, the Panama Canal, the North American Pacific Coast, and up into Alaska. If you want to become a world traveller and have the time of your life while you sail the open ocean, the Norwegian Sun is the right ship for you.

When it first debuted in 2001, industry professionals and critics were amazed at the sheer number of dining choices - nine at the outset - available on board. Today, travellers can choose among sixteen separate dining options, eight of them complimentary.

For complimentary dining, you have a fantastic selection, ranging from casual buffets with action stations to the five course fine dining meals available at the famous Four Seasons Main Dining Room, with its spectacular panoramic views of the sea and sky. The Las Ramblas tapas bar is the perfect place to kick back, relax, and talk the night away, while the Garden Cafe offers light and family-friendly meals to help you keep up your energy.

Of course, those are only a few of the most popular stops, and you’ll definitely want to check out the wide range of specialty options (also featuring choices like a steakhouse, delicious sushi, handmade treats, and more) for yourself during your cruise. Bon appetit!

Even the most beautiful cruise ship won’t hold your attention for long; luckily, the Norwegian Sun has countless entertainment options to keep you occupied when you’re tired of watching the clear blue ocean glide by beneath you.

As always, all the basics are there, from indulgent hot tubs and cool pools to a luxury fitness centre, along with fully equipped sports courts, quiet spaces, and more. What makes the Norwegian Sun special is all the other options: a fantastically designed casino, the luxurious Mandara Spa, golf driving nets, exclusive and wonderful shops, and much more.

Be sure to take in a show at the Stardust Lounge, hang out with your kids at the state of the art arcade, and set aside an afternoon to read and relax in front of the library’s breathtaking view. As for entertainment, you’ll never be bored with magicians, comedy, and even a blacklight party all available on board.
