Ship Facts: Norwegian Sky Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Sky Deck Plans
Norwegian Sky
Crew were uniformly professional, well-groomed, friendly and attentive.

Dinner each night in the "Crossings" main dining room showed the quality that went in to even this short cruise. The staff was very professional and engaging with the guests -- smiling, conversing, recommending choices from the "daily special" menu and from the regular menu. (Key Lime pie was the best I've ever tasted). We noticed the excellent team work among the restaurant staff, as we were facing the "ring" the runs around the restaurant where the servers interact.

"White Hot" poolside dancing, drinking, and partying was a crazy event -- with guys and woman from every age group out having fun under the night sky with good dance music on a huge sound system.

Leah Rodriguez the Concierge...what can I say? More than just a beautiful person, she was simply everywhere offering help, making guests feel welcome, and being the professional "face" of Norwegian Cruise Line. (And we were in a porthole cabin on deck 8)

Hotel Director Jean-Michel Dhelin introduced himself throughout the Crossings Dining Room, and took interest in our comments!

Archie the Cruise Director was full of info and ideas, but no hard sell.

The big production show was not onboard (Captain noted that they were returning in April), but the musical act -- 4 guys doing their "Oh What A Night" Frankie Valle tribute -- was completely entertaining, and the show was packed 2 nights in a row.

Bottom line, this short cruise was on par with longer cruises we've taken. Food, crew, cabin (it was about 25 sq foot larger than other ships), and the shipboard amenities -- all very good. Definitely worth the long flight from Honolulu for a fun time.

I recommend the ATRIUM BAR for live music, great service, terrific ocean views from comfortable chairs,

and a good place to meet other people.

Lastly, the Captain announced that he was delaying the departure by 90 minutes to accommodate 41 people arriving from Toronto on a delayed flight -- on the day of the big blizzard up north. This was a class act, and those 41 Canadians were very happy to be there!
