4.0 Editor's Rating
Norwegian Sky may be a teenaged ship, but a decidedly youthful feeling is evident onboard. The average age on this 77,104-ton, 2,004-passenger vessel is lower than on many other ships, likely because it offers ...

The Norwegian Sky was awesome. It was all inclusive on alcohol so that was a huge savings. It is freestyle dining so there are no assigned dinner reservations. It is a very casual experience. They do have specialty restaurants you can dine ... Read more

This was our first cruise and overall Id say it was pretty awesome! We ate at 2 of the specialty restaurants, the steakhouse as well as the Italian one and both were good. The buffet food was just so-so, typical buffet food , but the main ... Read more

There was some apprehension on both my and my wife's part before we boarded this ship because of some of the reviews we read. But not only did we not experience anything close to some of the horrors people described, we were actually ... Read more

Arrived at the port at 1130. Easily boarded at 1200 ish. Have your paperwork in order and it will always go fast. The ship is older as I had known. It was clean, rooms were smaller but for a 4 nighter I had no problem with that. The ... Read more

The cabin met expectations, quite honestly nothing to complain there.. we had some noisy neighbors one night which is expected from a these 'all you can drink' weekend cruises, so that wasn't too bad. We were expecting a lot more from ... Read more

My girlfriend and I took this cruise because her cousin got married on the ship. This was my fifth cruise overall and her first. It was my second time on NCL, the first one being NCL Majesty back in 2002. I've also been on Royal ... Read more

I chose this cruise as an add on to a 10 day Serenade of the Seas one I'd booked, as I like to make my airfare count! I used Jiffy Jeff to get me from FLL airport to Miami port & he offered great service ($15 shared, $45 alone), ... Read more

If you are looking for a great "bang for your buck," this is your cruise. This is mostly due to the all-inclusive beverages... juices, sodas, wines, beers, missed drinks, etc. With drinks on ships costing about $10, you can ... Read more

This was a girls week away- no hubbies or kids. It was a nice little break. Great weather for a short trip to the Bahamas! Overall, I enjoyed my time on the ship. I had been on her before, so I knew what to expect. My companion is ... Read more

This is a great starter cruise for first-timers, or for anyone wanting a weekend away. Because we were 3 to a room, we decided to get one with a balcony (9266), but there really isn't much to see, so next time, I would opt for window only ... Read more

This was our third Norwegian cruise and we were looking forward to another great experience. Unfortunately, it was not to be. We found ourselves stuck on the ship with about 1000 college students on Spring Break. Norwegian accommodated ... Read more

Not knowing exactly what to expect as a first time cruiser, I nevertheless always expect service with a smile, and that's exactly what I experienced aboard Norwegian Sky. Every Norwegian staff I encountered was cordial and helpful. The ... Read more

Visiting the Bahamas was a pleasure and I will certainly go again, but there's literally no chance we'll ever cruise with Norwegian again. We didn't pay the inflated Norwegian excursion prices and instead worked directly with locals. ... Read more

My husband, my two kids, and I took this cruise because it was advertised as a family friendly vacation. Much to my dismay, when we arrived at the ship, it was overrun with college students. Apparently, this cruise was advertised to them ... Read more

I just returned this evening from a 4 night cruise out of Miami to several stops in the Bahamas. This was my first cruise and I read a TON of reviews and prepared for the exciting get away. Note - I did go on this cruise over spring ... Read more

The Sky is a good short trip for anyone. Our embarkation port was Miami. Embarkation was short and sweet. When we boarded we were able to leave our carry on luggage in a safe place with an attendant while we ate lunch. The food ... Read more

I'm a college professor with a very early spring break, so I like to go on a cruise to get away. In 2015, I went on the Norwegian Epic 7-day cruise and stayed in one of the studios. That was a fantastic experience. The room was wonderful, ... Read more

As past veteran NCL cruisers , 10 cruises, this was by far our worst cruise ever. Too much alcohol with little control by ship staff. Loud, noisy cruisers keeping late hours - didn't allow for much sleep. Our embarkation as a ... Read more

Hi, I don't like to review much but it's almost unfair since I always count on this site to all my cruises, at least to give me a sense in what to expect. First let me say that this is my 4th cruise and I have a lot to compare. We were in ... Read more

After reading the reviews I certainly prepared myself not to have a good time. I was wrong! This was an amazing cruise! The staff gave great service during dining and my stateroom though extremely small was manageable (suitable for 1 ... Read more
