Ship Facts: Norwegian Sky Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Sky Deck Plans
Good vacation
We went on a "girlfriends" trip and this was 1st time cruising for both of us. We boarded the ship at approx. 1pm. Embarkation was simple, fast and easy. Upon entering the boat, we had lunch, walked around and waited for our room to be ready. We got into the room at 2:30pm, but luggage was not delivered yet. We waited and it was delivered by 3:00pm. We promptly put on our bathing suits and hit the deck. Pools were not heated and are salt water. Whirlpools were hot and fit about 6 people (4 are located on the main pool deck)

Freestyle dining was good at the buffets and sit-down restaurants. We went to the Italian Restaurant that charges a cover $20 per person, the food was cold, salty and not good! Drinks were strong, but good ($8.50), beer was $28 for a 6 pack. The ship offers a soda package, if you drink atleast 2 sodas a day it is worth the price($28.00).

Everything you purchase (drinks, speciality food, spa services, etc...has a 18% gratuity added. This cost is over and above the $12 per day/per person service change you already are required to pay.

The ship offers a lot - fitness center, full service spa, variety shows, comedy shows, library, bingo, photography services, duty free shopping, casino, etc.. Lots to do, but plan out your day ahead of time.

Our last day we were supposed to go to Great Stirrup Cay. We did NOT because the waters were too rough and Captain chose to halt the tenders from bringing people to the island.

Last full day was spent on the boat with little to do... the weather was cold and the ship was not prepared to entertain everyone.

Disembarktion morning you have to exit the boat by 9:30am. On final morning the restaurants close at 9:00am - eat breakfast early.
