Outstanding experience

We were a group of 8 initially and just before the cruise 4 friends of one of our group decided to go on the cruise as well. Six of us chose to stay in the suites in the front of the ship as we wanted a perfect view when entering and traveling through the Panama Canal. That view did not disappoint! As others have written those suites can be very windy and when at sea they were. But we wouldn’t ...

NCL sky is a small ship but what it lacks in amenities we have become accustomed to on NCL, the crew made up for. Evening shows were sparse, not every night like we enjoy on the mid size ships but there was always something happening, Cagneys is the best! But the pizza at La Cucina did not disappoint. Our suite was comfortable except bathrooms which were small and cramped. Not as shown ...

The crew and officers were great - professional, polite, seemingly happy. Room service was prompty and well-done. The buffet food for breakfast and lunch was good, with some really nicely prepared dishes. We ate dinner only at the complimentary dining rooms and I felt they offered great options, and the food was delicious. Service was outstanding all the way around. The ship was in very ...

It was a nice cruise. Plenty of food. Freestyle dining is good. Entertainment activities were okay. Embarkation and Disembarkation were super fast. Unfortunately, couldn't tender at the Great Stirrup Cay due to weather conditions. Indian food were available on request but very limited options for vegetarians (like Dal (everyday), Roti, vegetable curry, papad, Poori bhaji for breakfast). But, ...

Love NCL...but just didn't care for this ship

I should preface this review by saying that prior to sailing on the Sky, I had cruised on several of NCL's Breakaway and Breakaway plus class ships. NCL is my favorite cruise line. We booked the Sky for a large family cruise. There were 29 of us in total and the Holiday week, ship and itinerary was the only one that worked for all of us. We all booked oceanview cabins on deck 9. The Sky was ...

Embarkation was quick and painless! Food quality as consistent, although MDR service was spotty at best. Would like to see an expansion of craft beer offerings on board. Live entertainment was exceptional! Enjoyed the comedian and the classic rock cover band. We were scheduled to spend a day at GSC, but as I predicted, the inclement weather created unsafe tendering conditions, so ...

EMBARCATION - Very efficient. We were scheduled for 10:30 - 11:00 AM and arrived on time. Went upstairs and there were at least 20 clerks to check us in. There was only 1 person in front of us. We then waited in the big room for our group to be called. The PA system wasn't very clear where we were sitting until they started calling the group numbers. It was about 30 minutes after check in ...

We choose Sky based on itinerary. Didn’t think twice about ship… thought they were all about the same. Boy was I wrong. Sailed on the Dawn about same time as last year and had a great time. So we signed up for another one. The ships condition is good, probably better than Dawn. But that’s about it for the good points. The food on Sky was horrible. Not hot. One day the lunch buffet ...

We chose this cruise because people spoke highly of the line that had cruised PRE-pandemic. The food was cold and not edible most of the times. The advertised free at sea was a scam with most of the dining reservations filling up before having a chance to book. It only included 75 free minutes of Wi-Fi. The staff seemed sad and poorly treated by management. They weren’t even allowed to accept ...

I choose this cruise because I wanted to take my husband on a short trip for his birthday, but the experience was like a nightmare. It first started with trusting what they advertise about with all the free stuff that they offer. But be extra aware of the fine prints, we ended up paying double the price on board just to have fun Second, from the first night while sleeping, in the middle of ...
