The NCL SUN is a ship of a size we prefer. It is easy to find ones way around, and deck 6 offers a fine walking deck with views of whatever is out there. We like the buffet dining areas for the variety they offer and we no longer even bring dress up clothes. Saves on luggage space that way! Besides I never have enough time to do all the things I want without having to "get ready "for dinner. On NCL we can do our own thing the way we like.
Our final port was Ponta del Gado in the Azores. This newly built cruise ship section makes it easy to walk from the ship to the city. A long walkway follows the water where one can watch fishing boats or sail boats or water polo players. Cobblestone walkways in the main city mean wear good shoes. Many interesting shops here with a cash only policy. The black and white stone work will fascinate you.
The Arts and Crafts classes offered started with paper flowers and this led us into pre packaged amazing kits. These when made up make great gifts for crew members one really felt were special friends.
Deck 6A id very quiet but at first hard to locate! The shower felt larger than on some ships. Always clean and well supplied. We had an inside cabin and rarely heard fellow passengers. Even had a small couch in the cabin and a desk. The color TV was not working well but we spent little time in the room.
