Quantcast
Norwegian Sun cruise ship
OVERVIEW

 Norwegian Sun projects a nice atmosphere.  It is
contemporary but restrained.  Traditional but not
stuffy.        
 By today's standards, the Sun is relatively small.  
Although larger in gross tonnage than the legendary  
SS.
Norway, she is only about half the size of the line's current
flagship
Norwegian Epic.  Still, the Sun packs a lot into her
space including pools, dining venues, bars and
entertainment facilities.

 There are currently two other ships in service based on
the same design as the Sun.  All three would most likely
have ended up with Costa Cruises but the shipyard where
they were being built went bankrupt.  The first ship in the
series had already been completed and went to Costa as the
Costa Victoria.  The second ship was nearly complete
when the bankruptcy occurred.  Costa decided that it was
no longer interested and  it was purchased by Norwegian.  
The hull was towed to Lloydwerft in Bremerhaven where
construction was finished.  It is today
Norwegian Sky.

 Construction was not as far advanced on the third ship of
the series and thus Norwegian was able to have more input
into how that ship would be finished.  As a result, the Sun
has more cabins than Norwegian Sky and her balcony
cabins are constructed somewhat differently than those on
the Sky.  Whereas on the Sky they have a door and a
window, on the Sun, these cabins have full-length, sliding
glass doors.

 The Sun received a notable send off when she entered
service in 2001.  She was christened in Miami on the same
day as
Norwegian Star.  This was one of the few times in
cruise ship history that two ships were christened for the
same cruise line, on the same day and in the same place.

 As with the Star, the cruise industry and the public were
impressed by the numerous dining venues on the Sun.   
Even today, with more than 10 venues, the Sun offers more
dining options than many ships.

 Sun underwent a 12 day drydock refurbishment in 2011.

 The Sun primarily does longer Caribbean cruises during
the winter.  After spending her summers in Europe for
several years, the Sun is scheduled to do an Alaska season
in the summer of 2013.
