About Norwegian Cruise Line

Travelling with Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) is synonymous to informality and liberty. NCL names their concept “Freestyle Cruising”. There are no classic “first and second seatings” for dinner – just feel free to dine whenever and where you like. Choose from a variety of à la card or buffet restaurants and enjoy the casual atmosphere throughout the ship. No wish for “black tie evenings”? Then NCL just suits you fine. Here is no constraint. The guests on Norwegian Cruise Line’s ships are an interesting international mix and English is the main onboard language – though usually not the only one.

The Ship

The Norwegian Sun was delivered to Norwegian Cruise Line in 2001. She and her sister-ship “Norwegian Sky” are two of the smallest ships in the NCL fleet. The Norwegian Sun has a length of 258m and a maximum capacity of 1,936 passengers.

Atmosphere on board

Like on all of NCL’s ships the atmosphere is very casual. For example the only dress-code for the main restaurants is “no shorts and no swim-wear”. Nevertheless, if you love to wear a festive attire, just feel free to do it – or even attend one of the festive evenings offered in selected restaurants. NCL offers holidays that are perfectly suited for the younger (or young in mind) as well as families. Though you will find lots of sportive and fun activities and will surely have a chance to party at night you can also find quiet and calm places to relax and unwind.


All staterooms are tastefully decorated and provide enough space. While interior and exterior cabins offer approximately 13,5m² or 16m² of space cabins with balcony 120,5m². If you wish more space an comfort you may choose between mini-suites (30m² and 32,5m²) or even one of the suites with 45m² and 77m².

Food and Beverages

As dining options the Norwegian Sun offers a dozen different restaurants, bistros and cafés as well as pizza delievery service. For some of the specialty restaurants an additional fee is charged; these include the steakhouse and a French restaurant as examples. Many of the dining options are complimentary. Across the ship guests enjoy 9 different bars and lounges including a large casino.

Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation

One of the main attractions in the evening is the Stardust Lounge with a capacity of more than 1,000 visitors where spectacular shows are entertaining the guets every night. Thanks to the many choices everyone will quickly find his or her favorite bar and lounge or may even go dancing at the night club. Kids and youngsters will surely have fun in the supervised clubs for the different age-groups.


You enjoy sports? Enjoy the large and modern fitness area, go running on the jogging-track, play Basketball or Volleyball, play tennis or use the golf driving nets. Go swimming in one of 2 swimming-pools or relax in the 5 hot tubs. If you prefer to relax, indulge in the numerous spa treatments or feel young after a visit to the beauty parlour. Whatever you are looking for – the Norwegian Sun will most likely have it.
