Contact your NCL Cruise Consultant. As long as cabins are available and you are willing to pay any additional cruise fare, there should be no problem upgrading to a different stateroom.

Distilled water for CPAP?

Does the Norwegian Sun have any steam distilled water on board for use in passenger's CPAP machines (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure device for those of us with sleep apnea)?

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.

CaliforniaBear is right.
Check out the Sun's web cam for a view of the not so attractive SF waterfront south of ATT Park as she sits high and dry.
We'll hope she's looking spiffy for our May 8 cruise.

It turns out the NCL Sun is not making the long trip to Portland for repairs the first week in May. They are in the dry-dock at BAE Systems in San Francisco. Perhaps they were never going to Portland however the San Francisco cruise ship schedule said that;s where the Sun was going. Still no idea what the repairs are but I will find out on May 8 then we board for a cruise.

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.

The dining room hostess usually asks how many in your party and you can request a table for two in all dining venues.

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.

Directly off Norwegian's website:

Throughout the course of the refurbishment program, a total of seven additional ships will go into dry dock for
both guest-facing and technical enhancements: Pride of America and Norwegian Sun in spring 2016; Norwegian
Dawn in summer 2016; Norwegian Spirit , Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Pearl in winter 2017; and
Norwegian Jade in spring 2017.

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.
