The only issue we experienced was with the reservations for the specialty restaurants. We were told that the reservations we made on the NCL website were not appearing. I highly recommend that others print out their dining reservations AND ... Read more

Overall, our vacation was great. We really enjoyed ourselves. The weather for the most part was beautiful. And since we were there with 4 other couples, it was a great time. However, we were very disappointed with the Norwegian Sky. ... Read more

My husband and I cruised on the Norwegian Sky. The ports of call were exceptional. The two excursions we booked with NCL were adequate as well. If you're looking for excursions that involve snorkeling and kayaking as we did then I guess ... Read more

Although not told prior to this cruise, it was the last sailing of the Norwegian Sky. After reaching Vancouver it was to be torn apart while travelling back to dry dock in San Francisco. There it would be refurbished and put back into ... Read more

NCL Sky Southern / Exotic Caribbean 7-14 March 2004 We chose this ship mainly because of the itinerary but also because we had sailed on the Sky before and this had probably been our best cruise to date. Exceptional service, wonderful ... Read more

Contrary to some of the things that were previously written, I must say that my cruise on the SKY was so exceptional, I didn't want to get off the ship. My husband and I had such a wonderful time that we can't wait to go again. We met many ... Read more

We started boarding the ship about 12:30, smooth and easy. Had lunch at the Garden Cafe buffet, nothing spectacular. Went to cabin which was a decent size; the only problem was the top cover on the inside of the toilet was not cleaned. ... Read more

The Sky will soon be renamed the Pride of Aloha and moved to Hawaii. We'll miss it in the Caribbean, having sailed on it twice, 1/04 and 11/02. The Sky is a wonderful ship. The layout is excellent, it rides very well, and there is almost ... Read more

Freestyle dining - This was everything that we hoped it would be, and one of the reasons that we chose NCL in the first place. The hours that the dining rooms are open are quite liberal, and it is really no different than eating in a ... Read more

We picked this cruise for the ports, five if you don't include PR. Grenada and Dominica were new ports for us, we had a good time drinking rum on the docks with the islanders in the straw market. Since you shouldn't cruise to the ... Read more

Our cabin room was hot the entire time and it would not get really cold. The White Hot party was a disappointment. It is usually held on the pool deck but it was held in a lounge and not the same atmosphere. Some of the food was not held ... Read more
