How it Ranks: Norwegian Sun ranks #12 out of 14 Norwegian Cruise Line Cruise Ships based on an analysis of expert and user ratings, as well as health ratings.
Slightly smaller than its sister ship, Norwegian Sky, Norwegian Sun will offer sailings up and down the Pacific coast and around Alaska's glaciers as well as down into the Mexican Riviera and South America in 2016. With its low staff-to-guest ratio (953 staff members cater to 1, 936 guests), the ship earns high praise from previous cruisers for its high-quality customer service. Reviewers also compliment the generously sized cabins: Occupying 145 to 191 square feet, Inside and Oceanview staterooms are noticeably larger than those on newer Norwegian ships. On the other hand, some past reviewers say Norwegian Sun feels dated (it was last refurbished in 2011), and many describe the food at the five complimentary eateries as just average. The fare served at the six specialty restaurants earns higher praise among recent cruisers, though meals cost extra. The ship features facilities like an art gallery, a golf driving net, an expansive pool area and a full-service spa. In the evening, eight bars, several entertainment venues and a casino jockey for cruisers' attention. Norwegian Sun is also a hit with families, thanks to its children's pool, arcade and teens club. Plus, the ship is a good choice for clans thanks to its Kid's Korner youth program, which allows youngsters to make friends while working on arts and crafts or watching movies.Read Norwegian Sun Passenger Reviews»
