Ship Facts: Norwegian Sky Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Sky Deck Plans
Muster Madness
Apparently we were two of the few. The instruction by public address was to show up at your muster station at 4:30pm after the mandatory horn signals, with no drinks, no phones, no cameras, basically just yourself. We were at Station S and it was bedlam. Most of the people we saw had camera's, phones, drinks and treated the whole situation as an intrusion on their fun time. When you see what has happened in the not too distant past with ship tragedies, it is hard to understand how folks with children cannot take 15 minutes at the beginning of the cruise seriously; if not for them then for their children. It was sad and we have let NCL know about it. The crew members present were too few and did not have the ability to do anything about the situation. It put a bit of a damper on our 3 night cruise.

The ship is older, and showed some signs of wear. The food was as expected and the freestyle dining was okay. We did eat at Il Adagio ($30.00 cover for the two of us), and it was acceptable, but not what we have experienced quality wise on other cruise lines. The stateroom, aft facing balcony was as expected and the crew was very accommodating. The boarding and embarkation were the smoothest we have ever had on any cruise. Four stars for that. The weather did not cooperate but NCL has no control over that. Our only complaint and something NCL needs to look into is the handling of their muster drills.
