This was the fourth cruise we have taken, and would rate this cruise quite low, in comparison. We had cruised on 3000+ passenger ships, previously, but that should not account for the difference in experience! 1) The ship is not well ... Read more

This was a free cruise awarded to us by a nearby casino. We've done dozens of NCL cruises including the inaugural Breakaway from London to NYC a few years ago. Liked it a lot. This cruise though was too crowded. We couldn't even get ... Read more

We arrived at the pier at Noon and went through customs with passport. Went to see the mini suite and it was that small and since I am handicapped the doorway just barely fit through the door. We went to the desk for some off ship ... Read more

The Breakaway is a big ship. That being said, it was not crowded. Reservations in specialty or other restaurants was not a problem. There were not many children on this cruise so most activities were always available.  I was ... Read more

My husband booked this cruise as a quick winter getaway. He choose NCL after cruising on Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas and being disappointed with the condition of the cabin and public areas of the ship. The Sky was in good ... Read more

This is my 6th NCL cruise and 3rd on the Sky. I also have sailed on Holland America and Carnival. So, as you can see I'm "all over the place" when it comes to cruising. I've pretty much settled in on cruising NCL as their ... Read more

Norwegian Sky is a great ship: old & outdated - yes, but having been a Hawaiian ship refurbished and re-assigned to the Caribbean it has a much different character than the newer NCL ships. The staff was friendly, & the food was ... Read more

This was my 3rd cruise but my husband's first time. I read through quite a few reviews before selecting this ship - glad we chose Norwegian Sky! Going for a quick weekend trip I knew not to expect anything glamorous having done a 3-night ... Read more

This was a charter via Sixthman == Walker Stalker cruise. The ship was awesome, the food excellent and the staff amazing. The excursions on Great Stirrup Cay were incredible.. DEFINITELY will go on another, non-themed cruise soon. ... Read more

Wanted to do a quick cruise out of Miami on NCL. The good: Affordable cruise which includes all your food and alcoholic beverages. There is plenty of entertainment on board and the 1st stop which was the private island is great. ... Read more

I would rate this trip between average and very good. We knew the NCL Sky was one of their smaller and older ships with only two stops so we set our expectations at that level. Having said that I was pleasantly surprised. Granted not a ... Read more

This was our first time with NCL and we were traveling with friends. This particular cruise included all drinks , which was also a first for us. (we've cruised a LOT over the past decade, just not all-inclusive) Getting on the ship was ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise, first on NCL (1 on Carnival, 3 on Celebrity). We were expecting this cruise to be comparable to Carnival in the way of a relaxed vibe, fun games, and colorful decor. We took this cruise to get some sun, and away ... Read more

Second time on this ship for only two main reasons. After my first cruise on NCL three years ago, I started collecting ship models, neglecting to obtain one of the Sky. After my voyage to Panama Canal on NCL Pearl last October/November, I ... Read more

Just returned from a three day cruise on the Norwegian Sky and had an absolutely terrific time. I read the reviews and and didn't have great expectations but the price for a all inclusive was unbeatable. This was our eighth cruise and our ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Norwegian let someone buy out our entire ship for a trip that same week on Norwegian Epic out of Orlando. We were not comped anything and actually ended up paying more in taxes because it is a booze cruise, but ... Read more

Two reasons to go on this cruise - the open bar and the private island. The drinks are plentiful, the pour is strong, the bartenders hardworking and friendly. The private island - Great Stirrup Cay, is beautiful and was a great day at ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise, our 2nd on Norwegian. Never taken a cruise shorter than 7 days before so we feared it wouldn't be worth it. We loved it and were suprised that is still felt like a great, long vacation! Embarkation in Miami was ... Read more

This was a short break after New Year as it was too soon to fly home to UK & flights were still expensive. So an all inc cruise to Bahamas on Sky was a no brainer! We were worried there would be heaps of drunken party animals, but this ... Read more

Ok, so we have sailed with NCL previously. We were on a much smaller ship on that cruise, and that may have a bunch to do with it. With that in mind, here's what I think of the Norwegian Epic ship. We had no hot water one morning. 7am ... Read more

Just a three day get away for New Years Eve. The ship is old, tired and very dirty. The rooms tiny (we had a mini suite) NOT. Cabin Attendant good. The quality of soap and shampoo so poor we went to store and bought our own. The service ... Read more

With the Sky now just doing 4 and 3 day Bahamas cruises - with no days at sea, maybe most have their expectations set going in. I knew the age of the ship and that this would just be a quick weekend getaway - but I still left feeling like ... Read more

We, and 6 other couples, went to celebrate New Years in a different way. We have cruised many times, on Norwegian and other lines, and know what to expect. Our first cabin was 8029, which is likely the worst cabin on the ship. It ... Read more
