  3. Norwegian Sky
We sailed on the Norwegian Sky leaving Miami on January 12th. Since this was a 4 day cruise with a port a day we decided to book the same ship for their 3 day cruise with a port a day. We were fortunate to have booked our cruise far out so that we were able to get the same room number. We enjoyed this ship. We have sailed on RCCL, Norwegian, Carnival and Holland America and enjoy the freestyle cruising style. It is so nice to eat at your leisure in the dining room. Also, you have the advantage of getting a table for two in the dining room. EMBARKATION: The process of embarkation was great. The line moved very quickly. We had arrived by 11:00 AM and by the time they opened up the line we were checking in and on the ship by Noon. Lunch in the buffet was very nice. We especially enjoyed the buffet in the back of the ship where they grilled hamburgers and made sub sandwiches. This ship grilled hamburgers every day fresh in the buffet for lunch and dinner. Plus they had the best French fries of any ship we have been on. DINING: We enjoyed the dining room very much. The food was very nice. This ship had some of the best fresh fruit we have every had. The buffet was okay but boring after a while although they did make fresh individual Caesar salads which were delicious. We ate in the French specialty restaurant. The food and service were superb!! Especially the chocolate fondue. This was a very romantic restaurant and the servers were very pleasant. Our favorite place to eat breakfast was in the Longboard Bar. They made waffles and omelets there FRESH!!! The waffles were awesome. They served them with fresh cream. Strawberries were available. The made your omelets the way you liked or cooked you eggs the way you liked.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Porthole Window
Cabin OF 8227
We were in an oceanview room and it was very adequate. The television was older and a smaller screen but adequate. Even the closet was fair size with plenty of room for all of our things.
