|Here I am on a muggy day in Miami, Florida. Carnival Imagination stands tall behind--|
the first cruise ship I ever sailed! It's like a mini-reunion! :)
|And you thought my love for NCL was a new thing? Well,|
you thought wrong! I've been faithful all these years... and will
continue being such!
|Oh, yeah, baby! I was a true rock-star back in the day! Who needs an|
electric guitar when you have chess pieces!
|Up close and Crystal! Chillin' with Crystal Harmony in Miami one grand morning.|
Well, maybe my facial expression suggests the morning wasn't too grand, haha.
|No, that's not Rick James, but I was sure sporting his iconic look back in the day...|
minus the beads!

|A new feature to GSC is a buffet pavilion (as you can see, I kicked the buffet's butt).|
|I was a brave soul and bared it all... |
well not ALL, haha. But can you blame me? I just lost 45 pounds!
|Umm... yeah, I'm as confused as you are. |
Why is Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas in this picture?
|Ahh... now that's more like it! Norwegian Gem within arms |
reach of GSC's snorkeling bay and Cruise Man 3000!

|Cruise Ship of the Month -- February 2012: Norwegian Sun|

Norwegian Sun has room for 1,936 passengers (double occupancy), is equipped with 12 dining options, and is armed with 8 bars and lounges. I had the privilege of sailing her back in 2006, and she was--and still is--a true favorite of mine. So it comes as no surprise Norwegian Sky is also on my Top 10 Cruise Ships List. Unlike many of the newer ships being issued today, Norwegian Sun has a more intimate feel and ah-mazing food! It is not as crowed as let's say Norwegian Epic would be, but still provides a cruisetacular adventure for all who sail her.
Norwegian Sun is based in some super cool home-ports throughout the year, so she may be cruising close to you in the months ahead. Winter of 2012--until April--she is based in Port Canaveral (Orlando), Florida sailing 8 day/7night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises. Then she'll be heading east to be based in Denmark; sailing from Copenhagen, Denmark round trip to Northern European cities such as St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland; and Stockholm, Sweden for 10 days/9nights. After her summer stint in Europe, she'll return to U.S. waters calling Miami, Florida home. Norwegian Sun will be based there covering pretty much all of the Southern Caribbean for 12 day/11night and 11day/12night sailings. After her Caribbean visits, she's headed to Alaska for the summer 2013 season.
For more information on Norwegian Sun and Norwegian Cruise Line, cruise over to their site now! I promise you'll love this ship, so book your cabin today! Your ships await, and yours may be sunny and bright! Much Love--Shon!
