In August, we sailed onboard the Norwegian Sun to celebrate my birthday. We booked our cruise through the cruise travel specialists at Wyndham, so I let them pick our cabin. To my surprise, our travel agent picked for us probably the largest inside cabin I’ve ever seen in my life! Compared to our last Norwegian inside cabin on the Escape, it was massive!
The cabin we stayed in was #8119. It was on the eighth-floor mid-ship. We found that it was close to all the action, but still far enough away so that we didn’t hear any noise at night.
The Norwegian Sun was sent to drydock and refurbished in 2018, so it had a new cabin feel without actually being a new ship. One of my favorite additions was the USB charging ports next to the bed. Very handy!
The interesting thing about our cabin was the layout. At first glance, it had the basic inside cabin layout. Closets to the left when you walked in, bed in front of you, and basic cruise ship bathroom to the right. However, after entering the room fully, we noticed that it had an additional alcove next to the bathroom that had a full-sized sofa and a bed that pulled down from the ceiling.
According to NCL, this cabin will hold 5, and I can confirm that to be true. It would be a little cramped with space in the bathroom! But, if you’re close enough to your cabin mates, I’m sure you could make it work! Also, on a cruise as inexpensive as the Sun, the cost for an inside cabin for five could make this a good option for those wanting to cruise on a budget!

Our next Norwegian cruise will be in September on the Bliss, I can’t wait to share with you a video tour of our balcony cabin for our cruise along the Pacific Coast! Where is your next cruise headed? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
