Me goofing around.
Me and Maryann riding in a 1948 Chevy!

Cruised with a group of 7, ages from 50 to 95! My mother in law uses a cane and wheelchair to get around the ship. She never really has a problem getting around. Stayed in room 8207 with a large window looking out. Beds were together to form one large bed, bigger than a queen, smaller than a king. Bed was under the window which left most of the room open, except for the bedsides. Plenty of shelves and closet space for my wife and my clothes. Room came equipped with a room safe, which we used to store our passports and cash during the day. Also had a small fridge which we used to store our water and a few beer bottles. Room was clean and so was bathroom area. Used the "under bed" storage for our suitcases and carry-on. Mark was our room steward and he kept the room spotless and refreshed the ice bucket, as requested.

We arrived a little early at the port around 11:00am. We then only waited about 30 minutes after processing. I would say that the embarkation process was fairly smooth.

The Sky is a little older ship, but wears it's age nicely. We chose the "free" liquor option, and most of the time the waits around the bar were ok. We tipped one of the pool waiters $5 early in the morning and another $5 later in the afternoon. His name was Anthony and he provided excellent service. Sure beat getting up and waiting by the bar for drinks.
