Norwegian Cruise Line’s ‘Norwegian Sun’ is one of the latest cruise ships to undergo enhancements, as part of the Norwegian Edge programme.

Built in 2001, the ship underwent a three-week bow-to-stern renovation in Victoria, BC.
She now features refreshed staterooms and public spaces, with three new venues, including Los Lobos Cantina, Bliss Ultra Lounge, and Spinnaker Lounge.

Serving traditional Mexican fare, Los Lobos Cantina is new to ‘Norwegian Sun’. Located on Deck 12, guests who have cruised ‘Norwegian Dawn’ will recognise the popular casual Mexican restaurant, which offers a modern take on traditional favourites, NCL said.

Two main dining spaces received a complete makeover – Four Seasons & Seven Seas Dining Rooms. Both including new furniture and décor.

In addition, Norwegian’s Teppanyaki dining area has had its capacity doubled.
On Deck 6 at the new Bliss Ultra Lounge, formerly Dazzles, this is a new bar and nightclub. Enhancements include an updated look with new plush seating, cocktail tables, bar stools, chandeliers, wall sconces, wall coverings, ornamental ceilings and a wooden dance floor.

Located on Deck 12, the new Spinnaker Lounge offer guests another nightlife option on board. The new lounge replaces the Observation Lounge and has a fresh design with a natural colour palette reminiscent of blue, beige and tan. New to the venue are leather chairs, carpet, chandeliers, wall coverings and a stone top bar.

The Sports Bar has a new look, which includes new furniture and décor.

A Bolidt teak flooring has been installed around the main pool and whirlpools. The Sun Casino has new gaming tables and a fully refreshed space.

In addition, all 968 staterooms have been upgraded with smart televisions and USB ports, as well as new carpet, artwork, and select furniture. All balconies have been outfitted with Future Teak.
