Sailed July 28- Aug 6, 2011 Copenhagen to Copenhagen on the Norwegian Sun ship. Although we probably had one of the smallest rooms on the ship, we loved this cruise and the very different ports of call. Let me start out by saying that we made a mistake in thinking that cruse ship rooms were similar in size. We booked a room without a balcony for the first time, (it had a decent window), ...

The Baltics are the Best

We love cruising and the NCL Freestyle method. The Baltics are a super destination with many options. The Sun is in good condition and the balcony room is very familiar to us and would hold much more clothing than we brought. I think NCL is great value for the money. I am not sure why people complain except to sound important. We do not eat in the buffet every meal and don't get burned out on ...

After reading reviews that were not great on the Sun in the months after dry dock, leading up to our cruise, we were not expecting much. We wanted to see the Baltic capitals that this ship visited and that was our main reason for booking this cruise. This was our first cruise. Biggest complaint was whenever we asked the staff at guest reception a question, they did not know the answer and ...

Does not compare to the 138,000 +/- gross ton ships out there. For the most part pretty well maintained but a little boring. The excitement was visiting the Baltic! Food average overall, and many items were pretty good, but a lot of repetition. But horrible soups across the board, not even a basic quality. Coffee consistently horrible! Then I asked some questions and this is what I found out. ...

Our third ocean cruise was on the Norwegian Sun to the Balkans, visiting Copenhagen, Denmark; Berlin (Warnemuende) Germany; Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; return to Copenhagen. We have wanted to visit the Balkans for some time and this trip was well worth it. The Ship: There are plenty of reviews on the Norwegian Sun ... It is one of the older ...

Well - to make it easy: you can pay more - and you get more... but I am always asking myself is there a need to have more and spend the money for another cruise for some comfort of one cruise only. With NCL I can afford balconies while with the same budget I would only get lower categories. But you must accept some lower standards in the free food. Our cruise started in Copenhagen. A ...

We are well traveled seniors. This was our first cruise because I always thought I would not like cruising. Would there be crowds and long lines, would I be bored? Norwegian's Freestyle seemed very appealing to me coupled with a great itinerary made this trip very appealing. Embarkation: I wanted to arrive early because I did not know what to expect and was prepared for a long wait. Thirty two ...

As committed Freestyle cruisers, we expected to enjoy our first trip on the Norwegian Sun and we were definitely not disappointed. The itinerary was most unusual but that only heightened the appeal and we were delighted to discover fascinating places not usually associated with luxury cruising. The Sun proved to be a great ship with wonderful staff and the relaxed, almost quiet, atmosphere made ...

This was a late last minute booking for us. I had seen this cruise offered a couple of years ago, and filed it away. When I had to decide on a vacation with little time, I jumped at this. So glad I did. This certainly isn't a cruise for first time cruisers. The ports are for those looking for something different,and understanding the possible weather in the north Atlantic in late September. ...

Before I begin, I want to thank our dear friends, Heinbloed (Tien) and Bruno for taking care of us "2 old people". Without them we wouldn't have seen as many interesting and beautiful nature. Heinbloed had planned all of our excursion. The day before we embarked on the cruise, they took us by rental car to the Kronborg castle, Karen Blixen's museum and just to see the outside of the Louisiana ...
