Sail Date: Sep 2011
Cabin: Mid-Ship Inside

From the moment we booked our NCL-Sun cruise we saw the efficiency at which this line is run. Checking in on-line was easy and printing out the e-docs a breeze. Once in the cruise terminal we were welcomed with no lines, plenty of check-in personnel, smiles, and offers to assist in any way possible. Upon boarding the ship, we were directed to eating and meeting venues by the smiling staff along with offers to help in any way we needed.

In short order our cabins were ready, luggage appeared and our ship set sail. Our cabin [9122]was listed as a sleep 5, but we're unsure as to where the other 2 beds might be as we didn't see fold-downs. However, for 3 adults, it was extra comfy & spacious. There was more than enough closet & drawer space. Although the TV was old and small, it didn't matter as we only used it for background music. The room was spotless and the beds superior in comfort. Around the corner from our room were the glass elevators. To our pleasant surprise, we never heard them, nor any other noise outside of our room. We were conveniently located to the atrium by elevators, a short walk to the garden cafe', and had easy access to the pool, hot tubs and spa's. The layout of the ship is an easy study and soon you are managing all venues with ease.

The food in the restaurants, buffets, dining rooms and specialty areas was superb. Although we would have wanted lobster more than one night, it wasn't to be. The dining room cuisine fell into line with the port we were leaving and made for some exciting new dishes. Options to choose homegrown American cuisine was available in all public, no-fee restaurants all the time. But trying specialty local fare was more exciting and rewarding.

Mid-Ship Inside

Cabin IB

Cabin #9122, deck 9, NCL-Sun:

This is an inside cabin, forward section, and we enjoyed the darkness and quiet for sleeping. We had 3 single beds + 2 nightstands + European down comforters and very comfortable pillow-topped mattresses. The cabin is spacious, accommodates 3 adults very easily with room to spare; closet space + drawers more than ample; bathroom small but manageable. TV small but not necessary to us. Location near atrium glass elevators; seemed soundproof as we heard nothing outside unless we opened the door. Easy walk to the pool and buffets as well as pool and exercise room.
