Norwegian Sun - Introduction

Launched in 2001, the Norwegian Sun is one of two Sky class vessels in the Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) fleet. It was built at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Germany and was christened in Miami at an unusual dual-ceremony alongside the Norwegian Star.  The Sun was one of the first NCL vessels to exclusively incorporate the company's Freestyle Cruise concept.  At the time, this was a ground-breaking policy unheard of on ships in other fleets: giving passengers complete freedom over when, where and with whom they eat, as well as providing open disembarkation times at ports of call. This resulted in a more relaxing and casual feeling to the whole cruise and it allowed guests to set their own schedules - something especially appreciated by families with small children, as well as other passengers who prefer to experience their cruise at their own pace.  In early 2011, the Sun was in dry dock for 12 days and underwent an extensive refurbishment costing several million dollars. This project included redecorating the ship's 20 suites and the addition of three new restaurants. The kids' club was also revamped and new systems were installed to help reduce the vessel's carbon footprint.  The Sun generally splits its time between both sides of the Atlantic. Between October and April, it is usually based in Orlando at Port Canaveral and departs on three and seven-night voyages of the Caribbean, with stops in exotic destinations like Cozumel, George Town, Ochos Rios and Nassau.  During the rest of the year, the vessel is based in Copenhagen and sails around the Baltic and the North Sea. Ports of call include Bergen, the Shetland Islands, the Faroe Islands, Reykjavik, Glasgow and Dublin.
