Cabins on Norwegian Sky are smaller than average, with insides starting from 121 square feet. Oceanview cabins measure 149 square feet; balcony cabins each have a 154-square-foot interior and a 48-square-foot balcony, which has two deck chairs and a small table. If you are considering an oceanview cabin, keep this in mind: even if the numerical difference in square footage seems negligible, those cabins with balconies or even floor-to-ceiling windows will simply feel larger than those offering just a picture window or porthole. All standard cabins, however, do feature sitting areas.

Storage for the short itinerary is more than adequate in all categories. Drawer space is a bit tight, but there's ample room in closets to hang garments; bathroom counters offer additional storage. All staterooms include hair dryers, safes and mini-bars. They also feature old-school tube (not flat-screen) TV's that are a bit hard to view from the bed.

Decor is tropical with soft hues in the bed skirt, drapes and carpeting. Island blues, greens and pinks predominate. Wonderful Bliss Bedding includes a comforter and soft bed linens in addition to a truly comfortable mattress; we slept soundly every evening.

Standard bathrooms offer generic lavender shower gel and soap. Despite the sweet smells, you'll have to contend with the dreaded shower curtain, as opposed to sliding doors. Towels could be fluffier, but they are clean, unfrayed and refreshed twice a day unless you choose to hang them up for reuse.

On the higher end of the accommodations scale are penthouses at 306 square feet, each with a sitting area, private balcony at 96 square feet, dining area, separate bedroom and luxury bath. Finally, Owner's Suites have a 482-square-foot interior, and each offers a private balcony at 353 square feet, dining room, hot tub and separate shower. Both categories offer butler and concierge service.

If you book a suite, you'll receive a fruit basket that is refilled upon consumption, a bathrobe and a warm chocolate chip cookie at turndown on the last night of the cruise. Suite-holders also receive Elemis bathroom amenities, which include shower gel, shampoo and lotion.

   Cabin 0064
September 2013

Cabin 0064. Aft-Facing Penthouse Suite. This room has more than enough room for two people, and with a pull out bed, will accomodate 4. The wrap around balcony is to die for. Save your pennies, and enjoy the suite life. Once you do, you'll never look back.


   Cabin 0049
September 2013

Our balcony was 10 AFT cabin number 0049. We had a great view of the ports and when were "parked" in the ocean.

The closet was not big and could only hold one large suitcase. There were plenty of hangers. The bathroom was small but worked out okay for us, we...continue

   Cabin 9076
August 2013

Aft Balcony Cabin 9076: Tiny, tiny, tiny. Cracked lampshades, debris left by prior guests in cabin still there upon our arrival; the balcony advertised as "larger" was barely large enough for 2, tiniest I've ever had. We had maybe 6-8 inches between the foot of the bed...continue
