Norwegian Sun

Who says you can't stare at the sun! (No, not the real sun---that hurts terribly!) I'm talking about the Norwegian Sun cruise ship. In fact, with so many amazing onboard features, great activities, spacious amenities, and stunning destinations, you'll have a hard time averting your eyes from this stunning cruise ship. The 78,309-ton Norwegian Sun includes---among other things---nine distinct international restaurants, 12 bars and lounges, three swimming pools (one of which is only for kids), five hot tubs, and about 2,400 smiling people if filled to capacity.

Norwegian Sun Cruise Ship - Destinations

Places as different from one another as they are likely to put a smile on your face from ear to ear! That's what you'll find on cruises with Norwegian Sun cruise ship.

Norwegian Sun - Alaska
Take a cruise to Alaska's amazing Sawyer Glacier and see Juneau; Skagway; Ketchikan; and Prince Rupert, British Columbia, along the way. Much of Alaska is really America's last wild frontier, timeless and untouched. It's a seemingly boundless land, with immeasurable beauty. While you'll only get to see a fraction of it, it will prove to be more than enough to give you never-ending memories.

Norwegian Sun - Pacific Coastal
Taking a Pacific Coastal cruise along the western coast of America and Canada is like seeing the world for the first time. And if that sounds like too much hyperbole, just wait until you see some of the most dramatic scenery the world offers. Mother Nature doesn't look like this anywhere else on earth. Depart from Vancouver or San Francisco. You'll soon find yourself in beautiful ports of call like Astoria, OR; Vancouver, BC; and Victoria, BC.

Norwegian Sun - Panama Canal Cruise
Considered by many to be Man's ultimate engineering achievement, the Panama Canal is flanked by many ports of call on the Pacific and Atlantic sides. You'll see great ports of call in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central America along the way. It's not clear what you'll remember more fondly: going through the Canal or the visiting the ports of call on either side of it.

There are two itineraries from which you can choose. The first is the 17-Day Panama Canal Cruise from Miami to San Francisco. You'll stop at ports of call in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America.

See Mayan heritage and architecture in Zihuatenejo, Mexico; slide on a zip line through the jungle in Puntarenas, Costa Rica; taste the jambalaya of spicy flavors and sultry music offered by New Orleans, a city being reborn.

On a cruise to the Western Caribbean, you'll travel to places such as Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala; Grand Cayman; and Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico. From timeworn Mayan temples reaching towards the stars to the most modern and cosmopolitan attractions, it's no wonder why the Western Caribbean is so popular with cruisers.

Norwegian Sun Cruise Ship - Accommodations

Basically, you're choosing between lots of comfort, tons of comfort, and more comfort than you would think possible when sailing aboard the Norwegian Sun cruise ship.

Norwegian Sun - Owner's Suite
With over 790 sq ft, these suites include a living room, private balconies, dining room, separate bedroom with king-size bed, mini bar, and luxury bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower. Butler service and concierge are available. The Owner's Suite will make you feel like Norwegian Sun is your personal ship. With all the pleasure you get out of the Owner's Suite, you might even feel guilty making use of the butler and concierge service that's also available---but don't!

Norwegian Sun - Penthouse
With a spacious living area, private balcony, dining area, separate bedroom with queen-size bed, separate children's bedroom, and luxury bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower. Butler service and concierge are available.

Norwegian Sun - Oceanview Stateroom w/ Balcony
The Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony is for those people who aren't just satisfied with a view; they want to smell the sea air and feel the warm breezes.

Norwegian Sun - Inside Stateroom
The Inside Stateroom has two twin beds and a surprising amount of room. Still, there's no window and not an enormous amount of room compared to many of the other staterooms and suites available.


Norwegian Sun Cruise Ship - Entertainment

Featuring the longest bar at sea, Dazzles Nightclub is the perfect place to unwind anytime. It has the longest bar at sea, and it is a perfect place for an evening gala or quiet conversation.

Premium champagne and vodkas, caviar, pate and foie gras---it all can be found at the Champagne Bar, a very hip place with a warm atmosphere. It's an ideal setting for an intimate cocktail party or reception.

Music, dancing, lights, singing---you won't need an excuse for the standing ovation in the Stardust Lounge! During the evening, this resplendent 1000-person theater offers the best entertainment at sea. It also doubles as a large-group meeting facility by day.

Norwegian Sun's Sun Club Casino features blackjack, roulette, slots, poker tables, and you! You've already made a great bet by sailing with Norwegian Sun; why don't you see if Lady Luck has stuck with you!

Perfect for the big game, the Sports Bar is a great watering hole to root for your favorite team. There's also several other bars, lounges, and public spaces where you can have great conversation or just people watch. Teens aren't forgotten either; they'll find fun in the teens-only dance club, the Zone.

Norwegian Sun Cruise Ship -Activities

Keep your physique in shape at the Body Waves Fitness Center or be treated like royalty in Body Waves Spa and Salon. There's also an Oceanview Massage Room for when you need your muscles loosened up.

Fitness Center

You can just relax by the 2 adult pools or 1 kids' pool on the Norwegian Sun cruise ship. Get your blood pumping with a coffee in the Java Cafe or by jumping in on a game of basketball or volleyball on the sports deck. In fact, there are so many things to do (or not to do!) while on this cruise ship, that it would be practically impossible to name them all.

Don't forget to pick up a souvenir in the Galleria; gifts and keepsakes from the affordable to the opulent are available to take home with you.

If you're sailing with Norwegian Sun on business, you have the choice of three spacious conference rooms, each of which have exceptional multimedia capabilities, ultra-modern audio-visual equipment, and from 24 to 42 seats each. They have the capability of being combined into one large room.

Norwegian Sun Cruise Ship - Dining

With the Norwegian Sun, Freestyle dining gives you more options than you might know what to do with-oh, decisions, decisions! Six wonderful restaurants compliment the ship's interior.

For Italian food that's as carefully prepared by the chefs as it is eagerly anticipated by the diners, Il Adagio Restaurant is the place to be.

The two main dining rooms-the Four Seasons and the Seven Seas-feature master chefs and are wonderful spots for a family reunion or a romantic evening. The former offers diners a panoramic view of sea and sky to enhance the five-course meals; the latter is a lavishly decorated as it does serve exquisite food.

Ginza is an amazing Japanese Restaurant with freshly prepared sushi everyday, as well as many other tempting and flavorful foods. Or, try East Meets West for a fusion of Asian and Western cooking.

If you're in the mood for a quick meal, remember that Norwegian Sun also has a Pizzeria, Sport Bar and Grill/Buffet, and 24-hour complimentary room service.
