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 ...

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

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

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

Just back from a short 3 night cruise on the Sky. Read plenty of reviews before going as to what we should expect. This was super bowl weekend and the ship was close to full. Never did seem to be too crowded expect prime time for food ... Read more

My husband and I had booked a cruise on Norwegian sky for Feb 1-5 and after booking it I went to this site, read some reviews, and was wicked nervous that we had just booked a cruise from hell. From first stepping onto the ship to stepping ... Read more

This may be a little lengthy, but worth it for those of you who read as many reviews as I did leading up to this cruise. First of all, my wife and I went on this cruise with her brother and wife as a short getaway. We are in our thirties ... Read more

First off I have to say that the specialty dining restaurants are excellent. I consider myself a bit of a foodie and am hard to impress, but I have to say the service, food and atmosphere in the space was special. All of the crew where ... Read more

The food was terrible, and both my husband and I couldn't wait to get off the boat to get a good meal. Probably the only thing we enjoyed was the Porterhouse steak. The unlimited drinks were amazing, so if you don't care about food ... Read more

We have been on Norwegian cruises before and also on the Sky. Found it to be clean and decorated well and in good shape - looked no different from the last time we cruised the ship. It did not look old or worn. All the staff we ... Read more

This was our first trip to the Bahamas. Although we were greeted in a friendly manner upon arrival, most of the staff was not courteous or helpful on the cruise. They made you feel like you had no business asking us such a stupid ... Read more

We decided to do a short cruise to see how we would like it. We enjoyed seeing the Bahamas but do not feel a need to ever go back to Nassau. Embarkation went quite well but I only have to compare it to other reviews. We found a bar on ... Read more

To start, Norwegian has just begun offering all inclusive alcohol to ALL passengers (of legal age of course) starting this year. Apparently they are the first cruise to do this and apparently the cruise I went on was the first time they ... Read more
