Norwegian Cruise Line

Sail away to tropical destinations like Panama, The Caribbean, the Bahamas, or through the Pacific Northwest all the way up to Alaska aboard the beautiful sunshine decorated Norwegian Sun. Noted as one of the smallest ships in the fleet, measuring in at 848 feet in length, this vessel offers a luxurious and cozy vacation for anyone who wishes to visit some of the most interesting and sought after vacation destinations in the western hemisphere. It was completely remodeled in 2018 and now offers a host of new activities, restaurants, boutique stores, and amenities that entertain, inspire, and provide for a relaxing stay. This ship is home to the expansive Stardust Theater, a regal auditorium that comes alive at night with entertaining acts that will take your breath away; several outdoor swimming pools and hot tubs, and shopping experiences that appeal to anyone with a flair for designer brands and fine jewelry. As part of the renovation project, this ship has completely redesigned staterooms that provide for a restful and relaxing stay. From mini-suites to luxury penthouses inside The Haven, you will be treated to new furnishings and plush bedding. Get ready for a cruise like you have never experienced before!

Onboard Experience


Along with convenient 24-hour room service, you have the choice of over 14 restaurants and bars. This ship offers a whole line up of new offerings such as varying menus at the two main restaurants, The Four Seasons and Seven Seas. Each restaurant dolls out traditional breakfast, lunch, and dinner but has different personalities entirely. If you are in the mood for sitting out on the deck while you dine, check out Topsiders Bar & Grill and The Great Outdoors. Taking a cruise is a cause for celebration and indulgence, and the ship has several Special Dining restaurants to help you commemorate the moment. Los Lobos Cantina is a festive Mexican restaurant where you will find authentic food offered at reasonable prices. La Cucina Italian Restaurant is your destination for fine Italian food. For those who are looking to curb their cravings for Asian food, stop by Sushi Bar for your beloved hand-rolled cuisine!


Live from the Norwegian Sun's Stardust Lounge, join the cast and musicians from the Norwegian Production Crew as they entertain and inspire you with amazing theatrical performances all evening long. Rock You Tonight is presented by the Norwegian Sun Orchestra and is a musical performance where you will get to listen to covers of some of the most iconic rock music in American history like The Who, Queen, and Tina Turner. Pure Variety is an eclectic variety of live acts that will captivate you and keep you laughing. World Beat will take you on a musical journey around the world where you will learn about tribes, cultures, and traditions. It is a fascinating music show with everything from drums to guitars to flutes. The Stardust Lounge is an amazing venue that features neutral-colored bucket seats and a brilliant auditorium layout.

Fitness & Recreation

Aboard the Norwegian Sun, you can stick to your health and wellness routines while enjoying a fun-filled vacation. Blue Waves Fitness Center is your go-to place for cardio, strength training, and free weight exercises. The gym also hosts a variety of aerobics, yoga, and conditioning classes that are led by a professional trainer. Sign up for the classes you wish to participate in and let your trainer help you reach your fitness goals. If you wish to go for a jog or a long walk with your hair blowing in the breeze, head up to the top deck and do some laps around the track. On the deck, you will also find a volleyball/basketball court where you can play some ball with family or other guests on the ship. If you are in the mood for something less exhilarating, there is a mini-golf course, hot tubs, and a swimming pool located on the outside deck as well.


Make the most of your exotic cruise experience by taking advantage of all the treatments and services available at Mandara Spa aboard Norwegian Sun.

Indulge in services such as aroma stone massages, deep tissue massages, acupuncture, facials, manicures and pedicures, lip enhancements, and a whole lot more! You can also treat yourself to some thermal therapy or take a nap on the heated loungers with breathtaking ocean views. The spa is open to men and women and provides the perfect setting for some well deserved "me time." 


The Norwegian Sun is home to The Galleria Shops where you will find all of the merchandise you crave at affordable prices. When you shop aboard the ship, you will never have to pay duties or taxes on your purchases. The Galleria Shops are a collection of boutique stores that feature designer handbags, clothes, perfume, watches, gifts, souvenirs, and other items you can't live without. You will find an abundance of great things for men and women. Colombian Emeralds International is another store you should check out while you are sailing.

Kids are in for a special time when they sail with their parents aboard the Norwegian Sun.

If they are in the mood for gaming, the Video Arcade has them covered. It is a spacious game center where they will find a variety of digital and carnival-style games to play. The Video Arcade rivals the ones found in every town during the 1980s and 1990s. Splash Academy is a special place for little kids to go to learn, play, and let their creativity run wild. It is a fun center that features toys, arts and crafts, and games. For the older kids on the cruise, Entourage is a popular teen hangout that is loaded with activities they will enjoy.
