  1. I've sailed on both post-renovations, and I feel they are pretty similar. One bigger difference is that the Sky has Starbucks and the Sugarcane Mojito Bar, and the Sun has more specialty dining restaurants. While the Sun doesn't have The Local, the Sports Bar serves the same food. We had a balcony room both times and I don't really remember any difference, except the Sun still has the old-school hair dryers on the wall, though I have heard that since they will also have a regular one in a drawer. For me it would come down which port of departure was easiest for me to get to, and itinerary.
  2. We sailed on the Sun last year, and had a great time! As long as you go in with proper expectations - smaller ship, none of the crazy extras, etc. Service was excellent, food was good, and the ship itself looked to be in great shape, especially considering her age.
  3. You can definitely use the App to pay (I did it on the Sky), but make sure you reload before boarding. I couldn't reload and my app wasn't showing the correct amount on my account. It was fine, as the app still works with their system, but you won't know your balance. (I only had the social media internet plan.)
  4. We just got off the Sky as well. We were on a 3 day weekend cruise, so it definitely had the party atmosphere, but that was expected. There is not a dedicated piano bar. The Atrium bar did have piano music 2 nights, but super small and not the best to relax at. But there were a few other live music options each night. I thought she looked in great condition! I never sailed her prior, but we had no issues, and really enjoyed ourselves.
  5. I am not familiar with Kinos, but I have flat feet and I love Vionics. They have excellent arch support. I do size down in their shoes as an FYI.
  6. I'm having the same issue. Last week, I could put a promo code in under the area where you pick your offers. Now, that box has disappeared. Does anyone know why?
  7. The Norway was my first cruise. I was 20 years old in stuffed in a port hole room with 3 friends but we had a blast. It was also the sailing a crew member fell overboard, and was miraculously found 10 hours later.
