Ship Facts: Norwegian Sun Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Sun Deck Plans
Norwegian Sun Baltic Cruise May 2011
The Norwegian Sun is a very nice ship. The staff was friendly and there is plenty of activity and things to do if you stay on board. Nightly entertainment was great! I'm in my mid-40's. I think the median age on the cruise was high 60's. I saw less than 10 children on this cruise, but the kids I did see were having a fun time.

The ship is clean, but laid out a little weird. Food quality is good but is challenging to get. Skip the buffet's hard to find seats. Have dinner in the restaurants. I never ate breakfast in the restaurants because they had such short hours, which is disgraceful (closing at 9:00am?)...they should extend breakfast hours in restaurants due to limited seating in the buffet areas. I slept in one morning, and couldn't find ANY place serving breakfast at 10:30am...all restaurants closed, and the buffet had closed for lunch changeover. Very frustrating. You can get room service, which I highly recommend on the mornings when you leave early for shore excursions.

The excursions are discussed below. The buses used were in great condition and the guides were excellent.

Note: 2 out of 6 people in our group contracted the Norwalk virus at the end of the trip and needed medical attention once we got back to the States.

WiFi totally sucks!!! I spent $100 for the 250 minute plan and brought my ipad. The wifi didn't work in the room except late at night. It took forever to load pages which ate up half of the minutes. The last 5 days of the cruise the internet was completely down the majority of the trip. Several passengers were complaining. The poor guy at the "help desk" was no more than a warm body who offered "extra minutes" for the trouble...not money back. In this day and age, after the ship being overhauled, this was incredibly disappointing.
