We chose this cruise for the price and the open bar concept. We were not disappointed. My husband and I spent $1000. for both of us to sail on this four day cruise including a balcony cabin (well worth the extra cost) I spent every ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to get away for a few days and because it was reasonably priced and included the open bar. It was a good time with lots of music and dancing! The ship shows its age but it was very smooth and you ... Read more

I wanted a cruise that would be inexpensive and offer bonus things like free drinks. I have been on Sky before it became the open bar ship. Fearing that the drinks would be weak, hard to get, poor service, and all other fears that could ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the price. It was all inclusive and super cheap. I have heard nothing but positive things about Norwegian from friends. I am so glad that I finally got to experience "the cruise". We were ... Read more

This was our first time cruising Norwegian since our honeymoon 35 years ago. We have cruised Celebrity, Carnival, and RCI. We chose this cruise because of the price. I mean, who can argue with $199 pp for a night cruise? We did upgrade to ... Read more

The week after Thanksgiving is a great time to cruise as it is inexpensive and uncrowded. There were relatively few families on board, but lots of young singles from South America. We found no lines getting checked in, being seated for ... Read more

This was our 4th sailing on the Sky and I have to say we were a little disappointed. We've always enjoyed the short weekend trips, and the ability to just get away from everything, but it feels like the ship has gone downhill. The rugs on ... Read more

Our NCL cruise started off well. Embarkation was smooth and efficient. We found the Norwegian Sky public areas clean but showing signs of wear. It appears like it’s time for a dry dock refresh. Our oceanview cabin was mostly as ... Read more
