I had a great time on the Norwegian Sky. Loved the food, drinks, and pool. The staff was great. The food was good. The only thing I would improve would be the desserts, they were too small and not very good. They tasted a little stale. The ... Read more

We went on a Country Cruise with great entertainment but the food on the buffet was awful. First of all, the ship was chartered by a travel agency so I do not know who is to blame for the quality of the food. The first day I thought it ... Read more
