Why choose Norwegian Sun?

One of the smallest ships in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet, the Norwegian Sun offers the same wide variety of dining and recreation options as its big sisters, creating a choice that set this cruise line apart from its rivals. Built in 2001, the Norwegian Sun sails the seas of the North American continent from the exhilarating cool air and breathtaking natural beauty of Alaska, to the sultry sun of the Caribbean and its paradise islands.

Destinations and Itineraries

Until September the Norwegian Sun sails from Vancouver to Anchorage and back on a 14-night cruise. Passengers can just travel in one direction for seven nights on a voyage that makes six ports of call, offering a glimpse of Native American settlements, vast glaciers and remote mountains. After that, the ship heads south to Los Angeles on a seven night cruise, and then leaves for Miami via the Panama Canal on a 16-night cruise visiting seven ports en route. From its new home of Miami, the ship then embarks on a series of 10 or 11-night cruises around the southern Caribbean, taking in the Dutch Antilles, the Leeward Islands, the US Virgin Islands and Colombia.

Norwegian Cruise Line has swapped rigidity for flexibility on their fun fleet of ships. The Norwegian Sun is a typical example of this line's revolutionary, relaxed approach to cruise holidays.

This large ship has plenty of recreation options to satisfy guests no matter how they want to spend their days at sea. The Body Waves Balinese Spa offers unique treatments and therapies, and the Body Waves Fitness Centre is packed with the latest fitness machines and has panoramic views while passengers work out or join an aerobics or spin class. Other on board activities include a sports court for playing basketball and volleyball, two golf driving nets, a jogging track, or one of the ship's two full-sized swimming pools. A soak in one of the ship's five hot tubs provides the perfect way to unwind after exercising. Young passengers have their own dedicated space with extensive organised activities such as face painting and treasure hunts. Kid's Korner offers art and craft activities, film screenings and computer games - with a quite area for a toddler's afternoon nap. There is also a teen club with a dance floor bar, video, jukebox and air hockey. Older children may enjoy the video games arcade. This being a Norwegian Cruise Line ship the dress code is casual and comfortable during the day and smart casual in the evening. Formal nights require the usual dinner suit or dark suit for men and cocktail dress for ladies but passengers can opt out of this if they choose. After dinner entertainment is provided in the two-tier Stardust Lounge or in Dazzles Cabaret and Havana Club. There is also a cinema and library on board as well as an internet cafe.

The main dining rooms are the Four Seasons, offering daily specials and healthy choices and the Seven Seas, with superb cuisine prepared by master chefs. Meals here are included in the price of your cruise. Other complimentary options include the Garden Cafe with a family friendly menu, a tapas bar and the Great Outdoor bar with its daily changing menu. For a small premium passengers can also eat at one of several speciality restaurants on board, representing cuisine from all around the world. For Japanese food there is the Ginza Sushi or the Teppanyaki Hibachi restaurant. A pizzeria is open round the clock for a quick snack, or for a formal dining experience, guests can go to Le Bistro French restaurant. Il Adagio provides a casual European-style alternative. A steakhouse completes the ship’s offering.
