Ship Facts: Norwegian Sun Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Sun Deck Plans
Baltic cruise in August
Aug 28,2012 Copenhagen-Best to come at least one day early. That way you get to see some of the sites in this city. It also gives you time to get your clock adjusted. We stayed at the Marriott and were able to get in Tivoli,Nyhaven,Little Mermaid and a canal tour. This city deserves more than a drive through on a shuttle bus.

Transfer-cab to Marriott $35 for two people. Cab to ship, from airport about $55 for two people.

Embarkation-Give them an a plus. Left the Marriott at noon. We were in our cabin at 12:45. Room with balcony had plenty of space.

Ship: Has been updated and appears in good shape. Not luxury but nice.

Dining: Free style dining. I like it. Two main dining rooms. One requires a little nicer dress--such as no shorts. I liked not having to have to be there at a certain time every night. We never did have to wait. You can have either a private table or share--your choice. They have a dress up or night night. Some did and some did not. I like free style best because you do not have to pack a tux or evening dress if you do not want to. I thought the food and service in the main two dining rooms were good, but not gourmet. Service is good but probably not as good as if you had the same waiter every night.

Buffets-I am not a fan of buffets. We rarely ate at the main one. Read the daily ship calendar. There are places to eat all over the ship. That is what we did. The buffet on the aft of the ship is outside and a good choice,weather permitting. You can have lunch at the seven seas with a sit down if you want.

Breakfast- I miss eating a half pound of beacon for breakfast. Many choices so do not get stuck on the main room. The seven seas is much nicer and has table service.

Something extra-At each port, they serve some local cuisine somewhere on ship.

A breakfast tip--Eat at the Ginza if it is open. Eggs to order are available and almost no one there. We were the only ones there two mornings. No one seems to go there.

Internet-.75 per minute. Tip--If you must connect, type your emails first, then connect. Download your emails, then get off. You can then read them offline. Do not even think about surfing. Also best to go to common areas of ship rather than your room. Every one of the port terminals has free wifi so connect there.

Nice touch--It was cold and rainy some days. The hotel manager on ship had chocolate and cake waiting for us.

Dis-embarkation-We walked off. Cab back to Airport for two was $56 vs $60 for two using shuttle. The Copenhagen airport is really congested with several cruise lines coming in the same day.

Crew and staff--Did a very good job

Value--$1399 for a floating hotel with a balcony room for 9 days-Great

One thing we did- We bought post cards in each port and mailed them to grandchildren with local stamps postmarked.
