Contact the Access Desk prior to embarkation and you will have a bottle of distilled water delivered to your stateroom. This worked for me. If you do not contact them prior to embarkation I would be surprised if they did not have it available anyway.

To my knowledge distilled water is not available on any ship and you will need to bring your own as carry-on or checked luggage. You could try contacting NCL's "Guests with Special Needs" help line to see if other options are available. Refer to the following link for contact info.

On the NCL Sun, all of the cabins on Deck 6 are accessible only by stairs from Deck 7. I do not recommend these cabins as the stairs are narrow and steep and the hallways seem quite narrow. If you have been assigned one of these cabins you may wish to contact your NCL cruise representative to see about changing rooms. A different stateroom may cost a bit more, but certainly would be worth it.

Double check the deck plans on the NCL site. Not sure on the Sun, but there should be forward, mid and aft elevators. However, sometimes they don't go to every floor because of the restaurants and/or theater being there. In those cases, we found that we took a mid elevator instead of an aft, and then just walked back. Never had to use stairs.

Are there tables for two in the 2 main dining rooms? Do I have to sit with strangers during the dining hours?

answer 1
Yes there are. For breakfast and lunch they tend to seat a couple on their own, I don't think we have ever been offered to share for those meals.

For dinner there are lots of "double" tables and you can happily eat alone. You will probably be asked if you are willing to share when you arrive.

We don't always say "Yes" but we often do. We have met some fabulous couples and have talked with them while we eat. We really enjoy the sharing. Often you never see them again on the cruise; after all there are 2000+ people with you.

You are cruising Freestyle. There are no assigned times or seats for dinner. Just as in a regular restaurant, you can go anytime the restaurant is open and the seating is on a first come first serve basis. You can get a table for 2 or how ever many people are the in your party. It is easy to get a table for 2. Large parties can have a bigger wait time to get a large table.

I bought a case of bottled water and taped a luggage tag to it. When we dropped off our luggage at checkin I also dropped off the case of water. It was delivered to our cabin just like our bags.
Otherwise, there is tap water or you can buy a water package which provides a certain number of bottles of water for your room.

The water on the ship is safe to drink and it is available at any bar or restaurant on the ship. I have seen water fountains but I can't remember where I've seen them ... probably in the pool deck.
You are allowed to bring your own sodas, juices and water. You can check them or carry them on board. The products must be sealed or risk confiscation by the security. Make sure you tag them with your room tags so that they are delivered to your stateroom along with your luggage.

You may bring a power strip onboard, and I strongly encourage you to do so. There is only one outlet in most of the cabins and if you are like me, you will need more outlets to recharge cameras, cell phones, tablets, electric toothbrushes, etc.

If you buy the soft drinks package you will get unlimited refills of Pepsi products at any bar or restaurant on the ship. The drinks are from a fountain. They also sell cans if you want to purchase them individually.

A lot of people like to upgrade once they have booked a cabin. Check for available staterooms and their price on NCL's website. That should give you an idea on how much it will cost to upgrade.
Since you already have a reservation, you will need to contact NCL or your travel agent to make the reservation changes.

You would not be able to bring your own flowers onboard. You are able to purchase flowers and they would be delivered to your cabin. The last day for you to place an order for flowers would be 5 days prior to your sailing.

Unfortunately, flowers, fruits and vegetables etc can carry germs and pathogens. In the interest of preventing bringing onboard germs and spreading it any item that is not factory sealed is prohibited.
