All 968 staterooms on Norwegian Sun have been upgraded with smart flat-screen TVs and USB ports as well as new carpet, abstract artwork and select furniture. The soothing decor is ocean-inspired with a palette of cool blues and silver and turquoise accents from the curtains to the bedding accessories. It was a little tight around the bed and in the bathroom in our balcony room, but the storage space is ample with a closet that includes hanging space, shelves and wire cubbies as well as numerous drawers and shelves in the stateroom.
Other amenities include a mini-fridge, coffee maker, safe and hair dryer. Bathrooms boast stand-up showers with plastic curtains (shower and bathtub in all mini-suites and suites); several shelves for toiletries that flank the mirror as well as ample counter space for your bathroom essentials. Provided toiletries include hand soap, body wash and conditioning shampoo. (Bvlgari bath products are provided in suite-level and higher accommodations.) We especially loved the light in the closet, which doubles as a perfect nightlight. Both 110- and 220-volt outlets are available on the desk, and USB ports and lights can be found bedside.
