Default Norwegian Sky

We are interested in trying a Norwegian cruise. The Sky seems to have a regular 3/4 day cruise schedule, which sounds like a good way to start. Can you give your opinion of the on-board experience?

My daughter and I cruise aboard her in 2000.
It was our first ever cruise. Back to back caribbean over 16 nights. If it was because it was our first cruise I can't say,but we couldn't find fault. The staff were brilliant nothing was to much trouble for them. My daughter had her 9 week old son with us.The free style dining was our way to go. The entertainment was great. The cabin was an inside one,though on the small side when you have a cot in the middle.It was clean and comfortable. On the whole we loved every thing about the ship and crew.

The times we sailed on the Sky, one was a 7 day Alaska cruise and the other was when it was the Pride of Aloha. I haven't done the 3/4 day cruise yet but we plan to soon. I really enjoyed the ship and the crew. If lived closer we would be sailing her a lot more.

I just cruised with the Sky on 02/15/13 - 02/18/13. It was a great weekend cruise. The staff was wonderful - really attentive. Onboard experience was great. There were comedy shows. 50s/60s and 80s dance parties. Salsa and Latin dance parties, White Hot party - so take white outfits(poolside) and many more. They also had karaoke. There is a gym and also a spa. There are a few bars. There were a few hottubs, sauna and steam room and pool on deck 11 (top deck). They have a sports court. Also a Library which was open a few hours a day every day. There is a kids corner and teen zone.

The food was great. I had dinner at the Palace one evening - great food. However, I mostly ate at the Garden Cafe (Buffet).

At the Great Stirrup Cay a barbecue was prepared for us. The food was great. However, it rained really hard that day. Hopefully you have a dry day.

I really enjoyed the tour in Nassau. The tour guide was very detailed and humorous.

Basically, there are a whole lot of activities going on - even more than you would be able to participate in. You would definitely enjoy it. It was short and sweet.

I went on the sky a year ago for a 3 day cruise with my then time girlfriend. We both really enjoyed the cruise. All 3 nights we ate at a specialty restaurant Cagneys and Le bistro I liked Le bistro was my surprising favorite. Only complaint was it was just too short.
