NORWEGIAN SUN's interior decor is held in very tasteful colours. This is a ship where it is easy to feel at home. It is made even easier by the very friendly and service oriented staff, probably the best we have seen with an experience from more than ten cruise ships.

My favourite place was the Observation Lounge with comfortable leather chairs and an excellent view over the sea. Seven Seas Restaurant offered food of above average cruise standard and extremely friendly staff. The head waitress learned our names one of first days and later greeted us in personal way each time we visited the restaurant. The best restaurant on board is according to my opinion Le Bistro with top class food and service.

One of the things we enjoyed was the Taste of India lunch. If there was an Indian restaurant on board we would surely visit it.

I can see a tendency over the years that the entertainment staff take more and more space on board. Here as on many other ships they act very similar to what you may see on bad quality TV channels. I miss good lectures about the different ports. The shows are screamy and they act in a standardised way giving the impression of a gym class. The best show was the crew's show the last day. We prefer British entertainment staff to American.

Cabin review: Inside

Large, comfortable and functional cabin. Air conditioning a bit noisy.

Port and Shore Excursions

This is another of the attractive Scandinavian capitals. We went by our own to Sveaborg fortress which was a nice place to spend about half a day.

What a lovely surprise. We stayed in Warnemunde and we found a very pretty former fishing village, Spa town and now seaside resort. The sailing out at 10 pm was a great experience with other ships signalling, lots of people waving on the quays and a loudspeaker in terminal playing "Time to say good-bye.

What museums! A most interesting place. We took guided tours both days which were very good. On our own we would not have managed to see so much.

Port
Stockholm is really the Venice of the Baltic. It is a great disadvantage that the ship anchored at nearby Nynashamn. The passengers missed the beautiful sailing through the archipelago.

Port
A city where history is always present, a very nice place to visit. The Estonian guide talked very proudly with all rights about her country's progress to a modern, democratic nation.
