My husband, two friends and myself sailed on the Sky and was very apprehensive due to some of things we'd read about cruising since the pandemic. We'd even looked at cancelling. We need not have worried apart from testing to fly to Miami and then another test before getting board ship, as we'd spend 3 days in Miami before hand, we didn't have to test again. The ship was at half capacity and the staff were fantastic. They went above and beyond for us, their interaction was brilliant. From our first night in the French Bistro with Christian and Heidi. To Anthony who served us during the day around the pool. To Kora, Ida, Marvin in the Palace and Crossing restaurants and many more staff they made our worries evaporate. They were so friendly and funny, the energy and enthusiasm of Richard and Shirley the cruise director and assistant cruise director and Richard even remembered our names. They deserve a great pat of the back and that includes all the staff behind the scenes. The cleanliness of the ship was tip top and we didn't feel at risk at all. We managed to forget about the pandemic which was very welcome. Our holiday was the best we'd ever had and that is in part to the staff. So we'd like to thank them all for giving us a worry free holiday.
The cabin was smaller than we've experienced before but was decorated nicely and was clean. Our housekeeper was excellent.
We loved Antigua, the people are friendly and welcoming and the beaches are beautiful.
