On the down side, we didn't find the food nearly as good in the main dining rooms as on Carnival. NCL's breads and pastries are great!

Cabins on the Sky are smaller than Carnival's cabins. Service on both lines seems to be comparable.

I enoyed the Sky so much that I talked my husband into booking a B2B on the Sky in Nov.
great, love to read about converts or 1/2 converts. This isn't to say you won't or shouldn't cruise Carnival again, but if you like the Sky this time you will love it next time I am sure.

Thanks and I really think most mass marketed lines are as much a like as different, especially NCL, RCI and Carnival...Yes, carnival cabins certainly are a bit bigge.

Actually when we were on the Spirit 2 1/2 years ago I wasn't all that impressed and said I'd never go on NCL again unless we got a great deal........the Sky has changed that thinking. We've still got 2 cruises booked this year on Carnival and will continue sailing them (love the platinum perks! ). But at least now I know there's at least one NCL ship I really like and it opens the door to the possibility of others
