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 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

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

My boyfriend and I went on this cruise to celebrate our anniversary and expected to have a great time. We are 25 and 26, so we where happy with the unlimited drinks package and pleased to find that it wasn't a ship known for being over run ... 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

We cruised on the Norwegian Jewel last June and since we were going to be near Miami decided to take a short cruise. After reading more recent reviews of the Sky I was a bit apprehensive but overall we had a wonderful time and were ... 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

My wife and I have been active cruisers for 14 years now. This was our first time on NCL because we received a good deal through one of our local casinos for the cruise. I will honestly say that we couldn’t wait to get off this boat ... 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

This was our third cruise. We had previously sailed on the Getaway last year and the Reflection the year before and both were 7 night cruises. Truthfully after our previous great experiences on these two ships I lowered my expectations for ... Read more

Just got back from a fun 4-night cruise to the Bahamas on the NCL Sky. This is one of the older and smaller NCL ships. On the plus side, it offered the unlimited beverage package as standard, which is why I think that this ship had a ... Read more

I went into this cruise very skeptical due to a previous poor experience on the "greyhound" of cruise lines (Carnival). This cruise changed my view on traveling by sea and I will definitely travel with Norwegian again. The ... Read more
