Ship Facts: Norwegian Sky Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Sky Deck Plans
Christmas on the Sky 12/23-12/26
OK first let me say we where very worried after reading so many negative reviews.

This was our first cruise that had freestyle dining and the tips "forced" upon you. Most reviews we read stated that the employees where lazy and don't expect anything extra.

I must say as a experienced cruiser we where pleasantly surprised. The Sky isn't the best ship we have been on but it was a blast.

The Positive things:

The food was nothing like we expected according to prior cruisers and their reviews. We ate everywhere except the pay places like Cagneys and the Italian place. Everything was always fresh and hot. There was a large variety from vegetarian,Indian,Asian and others. We ate at the buffets inside and pool side. Excellent burger and that type fare.

Our room was small but was kept clean and neat (9345)

They have 24 hour room service that is included unless you order pizza (5$ for large)

Drinks are like most high price and easy on the liquor. (We carried on our own vodka and rum) Btw way in to types of ways to test their checking. They caught neither.

They constantly are cleaning and picking up you plates and replacing silver/napkins.

Their organization for exiting the ship was some of the best we have seen.

Their private island Stirrup Cay blows away other private islands we have visited by a long shot. All newly built buildings, bathrooms, kitchen/buffet etc. Food on island was ribs,chicken,burgers, hotdogs and all the other fruit and side dishes.

I could go on and on but I'm sure you get the point. We was pleased with our experience and will be back.

Negatives: The ship is layed out really weird and cut up. Not sure why this is. But we are not that difficult.

To wrap this up let me add unless you are a pain in the ass type traveler or one of those people that can never be pleased or maybe your a billionaire and used to 200$ a plate meals every day I would ignore the majority of the previous negative reviews. After using this site for the last several years to review ships prior to travel Ive found most negative comments to be 90% B.S.

Check them out and have a great time. We will be going again soon.
