Default More "Norwegian Sun" pictures

Hi everybody,

on my way back from my visit to the M/S "Deutschland" in Cuxhaven July 7th, I took the opportunity to visit Bremerhaven which lies on the way. NCL's "Norwegian Sun" was in drydock where the final coat of anti-fouling paint and the propellers were added. It wasn't that easy this time, but I nevertheless took a couple of pictures which have now been added to the "Norwegian Sun" picture gallery at my site, "Das Ruderhaus". To see the pictures, please point your browser to the following URL:


You can still click on the "funnel" to get to the pictures (the last four pictures are new), but the funnel will disappear within the next days when a brand-new feature article and picture gallery will be published. You will then be able to access the "Norwegian Sun" gallery through the table of contents on the same page.

Please note that on the pictures taken May 27th, the ship still has NCL's old logo on its funnel while on the July 7th pictures the new logo is found. If you take a close look at the close-up (picture #9) you will notice that the old logo is still there and that the new one has simply been attached over it.

The "Norwegian Sun" left drydock July 8th, and is currently being
prepared for her sea trials which will begin July 19th.

The other ship that is visible on some of the pictures is TT-Line's cruise ferry "Nils Holgersson", which is also under construction (it was scheduled to be delivered yesterday).

Enjoy the pictures!

Thanks so much for the info and pics. We're sailing on the maiden voyage of the Sun and have been worried by the lack of info or discussion. Let's hope we start to hear some news as it's not long to go.........glad to know that sea trials are now underway!

I am on the Sun in December. I would love to hear from you once you get back to see how the ship is. I am beginning to worry that the Sun will charge for all restaurants other than the main ones. Let me know what you find out. Thanks.

Hi Bobby!

There *will* be an extra charge of US$ 10 for the the restaurants with the exception of the buffet and the main dining rooms (as onboard NCL's other ships). Reviewers have indicated, however, that the quality of the restaurants justify the extra charge. For a comprehensive review of the sister ship "Norwegian Sky", you might want to visit CruiseReviews.com:


Hope this helps!
