Scandinavian cruise journal: On board the Norwegian Sun

June 1, 2016 – 06:15 pm

A card showing the Norwegian Sun cruise shipThis publish may be the 4th installment inside a journal of my cruise through Scandinavia and also the Baltic states this year on Norwegian Cruise Line. Through the cruise, I’ll highlight each port, with photos and a few tips about things to see and just how. Today, the very first of two ocean days around the cruise.

It’s a lengthy way from Warnemunde, Germany to Tallinn, Estonia, the following port on my small Baltic cruise (see above). That provided a while to obtain settled in to the Norwegian Sun and discover my way around. (Note: the Norwegian Star performs this cruise in 2014, however the two ships offer a similar experience.)

The atrium on the Norwegian Sun cruise shipThe Sun's Rays is among Norwegian’s older ships, built-in 2001. However, it had been refurbished this year, before my cruise, so everything was ship-shape. The Sun's Rays can also be certainly one of Norwegian’s more compact ships, having a period of 853 ft, in comparison using the Gem, at 965 ft and also the Norwegian Epic, at 1, 068.

Still, Irrrve never found the ship crowded, as some have stated about more recent ships: actually, some people have said the size made the sun's rays simple to circumvent. The only real crowded place was, sometimes, the buffet restaurant, however that appears the situation of all luxury cruise ships: I’ve never been in one where I did not need to search for any breakfast table.

The Norwegian Sun does not have the type of features you’ll find around the glitzy new ships such as the Epic or Royal Caribbean’s Oasis from the Seas. There isn’t any mountain climbing wall, no skating rink or zip lines. Rather, you receive a pretty standard suite of entertainment spaces targeted in the things most grown ups actually want to do: possess a drink or perhaps a coffee, pay attention to music, watch shows and lie round the pool.

The majority of the activity around the ship radiates out of the central atrium, a beautiful meeting area with glass-walled elevators that rise through the ship. The guest services desk is here now, but in addition, there's a coffee shop, and around it a number of bars and lounges along with the internet coffee shop, pretty standard on Norwegian ships.

You will find nine bars in most, such as the Atrium coffee shop and bar, the Champagne Bar, the Champs Bar through the fitness center, Dazzles Nightclub, the Observation Lounge over the ship’s bow, the Sports Bar, the sun's rays Club Casino Bar, Topsiders Bar and also the Windjammer piano bar.
