Great ship, great food and great friends. A small group of us took the sky out of Miami for a 3 night getaway. The drinks were top shelf, service was good at the bar and it was refreshing to spend the weekend without the cell phone. We had a phenomenal concierge named Kay and the ships Capt. and team were exceptional. We will definitely do it again, it was just long enough to feel like you got a vacation but short and cheap enough that the wife won't kill you. I would highly recommend for group getaways, we will do it again next year. Rooms were tight at 6'3, but bed was comfortable and clean. Great nightlife and awesome areas to meet up and hang out. I was surprised how many people were actually on the boat when we stoped at the private island. It didn't feel crowded at all. Cant say enough about the great staff! Food was fantastic! Read Less

Visiting Shanghai for the F1 Grand Prix and this was my first ever cruise on any ship. I have to say that this ship and cruise is most definitely aimed at Chinese. If you are a European like me, it’s a real eye opener. There are over 1 billion Chinese that have money to spend and Royal Caribbean wants to exploit that market, it’s good business sense. Be prepared for rudeness, queue jumping and little consideration from the Chinese passengers on the cruise with you. An example was that there was a long queue at Sorentoes, I got my meal, the server tried to hand it to me and a Chinese man tried to steal the meal. He saw absolutely nothing wrong with this until the server rebuked him in angry Mandarin. Try to avoid Windjammer at peak times, complete madness. Little choice apart from Chinese food, even the western food is aimed at the Chinese passenger. You can get other food but you will have to pay for it. Shipboard currency is dollars, they can change currency but be prepared to pay a surcharge. I was advised to go ashore and change currency there. Embarkation was ok, the cruise line have worked very hard to make it a smooth as possible. The cabin I had was internal and was finished to a good standard and the house keeper introduced herself and was extremely helpful when I needed to ask her questions. I cannot fault the rest of the crew I have had dealings with, but it’s VERY obvious which passengers are in the driving seat on this ship and the crew don’t enforce the rules unless they have to. They do not want to upset those passengers at all. I have A LOT of time for the crew on this ship because of the hard work they have to do. There are LOTS of videos in Mandarin instructing the passengers not to walk around in pyjamas, disposable flip flops and certain areas you are required to dress smartly to enter. I walk around the ship and lost count of the passengers wandering around in pyjamas and flip flops. I got dressed up for chops resturaunt and in came several others in jeans, t-shirts and disposable flip flops. I went on a trip and was told that at the last minute I could not leave the ship until my account had been settled, I phoned at friend who had been on another RCL ship (Independence) that it was not done. Where was I going to go? The ship had taken my passport (for immigration purposes) it’s not like I was going to do a bunk without that? I can only say my own observations, it’s a good cruise and I have had a good time but you are going to see an awful lot of bad Chinese behaviour. I have got a master class in Mandarin insults, and watching men hawking spittle into the hand basins they have to wash their hands in before they go into the windjammer. Come and see China and Japan its a great experience, but you have to bite your lip a lot. You have to remember that what’s considered rude and really out of order in the West is totally different from what’s applicable in China. Read Less

If you want dance lessons then this cruise is for you . Cos thats your entertainment .I felt on the first day i was sat in a waiting room all day .Very bad if your english speaking . I found the staff ignorant . I got more sence out of our cleaner . He was good at his job. Each port looked like a chemical plant . Excursions are very dear . We also found that they take money from your account with out asking. In hamburg they was charging 16 euro for the bus in to the city .If you went on the street behind , were msc had there buses .you could get to the city for 2 euro.and we was told by an msc crew member about this . Fine dining was ok , but the canteen on the top deck was horrid , food was oily and cold .If im totaly honest MSC dont cater for the English . Read Less

Great, professional, friendly and well trained staff; clean ship. The 7 night cruise offered a panoramic view of some Caribbean islands. Shire excursions with the ship were way too expensive dive as well as onboard internet. Food was varied and good quality. Highly recommend Royal Caribbean. Infinitely better than a (crowed and unpleasant) Norwegian cruise I took in the past with Norwegian Cruise. A shout out to Roberto caeiro (housekeeping) Norberto dicosta (restaurant) Imade Sanjaya (andi) (restaurant) Igor Knezevic (restaurant) Andrej Apati (restaurant) Savio Serrao (restaurant) Beverly Taylor (restaurant) Amal Dmello (restaurant) . Restaurant staff so well trained and food was of very good quality. I just wish there would be a few more vegetarian varieties for dinner. Overal, a great cruise experience. I traveled with a group of different ages: a couple over 70, my kids, ages 11 and 13. The main lobby area should have more space as it is the core of the evening activities , providing fun entertainment (believe me, I am usually not fan of entertainment in general). Read Less

Since my last RC cruise 3 yrs ago.... Sit down dinners in My Time dining - food quality is of a lesser quality, food choices in Windjammer the same for 7 days. When cruising, no space available anywhere! I would definitely reconsider booking on such a big diverse boat. On the plus side, there were more shows/entertainment/music venues which is why the rating of 9 vs a 7. The only option for solo cruisers to meet were not honored/recognized by staff so we didn't even get admitted due to families taking up the tables in the Rising Tide bar. The Staff was still pretty amazing everywhere, and you didn't have to wait for a drink anywhere for more than a few minutes. We had a cabin overlooking Central Park which was very nice. Housekeeping was phenomenal as usual. In all fairness, this is probably a great family cruise but not so much for singles & friends. It was nice to see once though. Read Less

Small ship. Less 1000 passengers. Very well recommended. Cabin 7016 excellent, comfortable spotlessly clean. Lovely stewerdess. Dining, first class service, food hot, good selection, staff and service excellent. Entertainment brilliant and very professional. Bars, lounge's, library again very efficient excellent service. Ship generally is very comfortable softly furnished with very little glitz. We never queued once either embarkation, disembarkation, dinning rooms etc.in all Fred Olsen Bramar is an excellent comfortable cruise ship. A real pleasure to sail on her and will Do again along with the other three ships. One comment is the cruise is really for 50 plus as the amenities are not so extensive as on the large glitzy ships. Well done Fred Olsen staff and crews.The smaller ships allow access to ports and places that the larger ships cannot access. We would recommend cruising on this comfortable ship and hope when we cruise on the other three it will be equally enjoyable Read Less

I found a great deal online and want to try the cruise so I booked this one. I’m from Bangkok and live in the States for a year so this is the chance! The food, really awesome. Almost everything was super delicious! Love them so much, especially Seafood!!!!!! I got the excursion at Atlantis, it was amazing! All the slides and water rides. So much fun! Another excursion is stingray cay, love the sting rays! We learnt about sting rays and gotta touch them gently, feed them as well! The water was so clear, a bit cold but it’s okay. It’s not deep as well about 4-5 ft. Lifejacket for kids are provided plus snorkeling gear, would be better to bring your own too in my opinion. They did not fit me. Lastly, I love Champaign, Wine, Activities, Foods, and the Services/Activities here so much. I dont want to leave the ship!! Can’t wait to be back!! Read Less

The NCL Sky is on the smaller scale of cruise ships but this vessel certainly packs a punch! For a 3-4 day cruise it is perfect in size. You can learn the ship's layout quickly and it is easy to navigate to know where all the amenities such as the spa, bars, restaurants, shows etc are located. No long lines for elevators or long waits at the bars/restaurants which makes for an enjoyable experience. The staff is truly impressive and I am one who is not always easily impressed. I have cruised on NCL, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, & Princess in the USA and overseas and the SKY is the best value! The entire executive staff is visible throughout the journey and makes the rounds on the pool deck and throughout the restaurants to check in on guests and just to chat which is much appreciated and not usual on other ships. The food quality is fantastic whether it be at the Crossings restaurant on the 5th floor or one of the specialty restaurants. Great service by the wait staff and awesome food selections!!! My cabin was always extremely clean and every need was meet, every night came home to a perfect cabin....well done! Special thank you to some people that make the Sky one of the best in the NCL fleet...Ron the Hotel Director and his staff are the best of the best and go the extra nautical mile to ensure your vacation is truly a memorable one....Kudos Ron & TEAM you all should be cloned for the rest of the NCL fleet. Zimba and K were two others who I had the absolutely pleasure of interacting on a daily basis. Two of the ultimate professionals in the industry who will not let ANY little desire or need go unmet! NCL should feel proud to have you both on their team as the qualities you both exemplify are 5 Star service. Thoroughly impressed by the NCL SKY Team! THANK YOU Read Less

Just got back from a weekend on NCL's Sky. Had a great time with friends. Here are some of the highlights. The Ship: Its an older one that is kept up really nice. Has everything you need and that you find on the bigger boats. Plenty of food options, entertainment, and a nice casino. The pool area doesn't seem crowded and they have a hot tube in the front that never has anyone in it. Perfect size for less than a week cruise. The Staff: Are great!!! Very attentive and are always in a good mood. The hotel director Ron is on top of everything. From housekeeping to food and beverage, everyone works real hard to make sure you are happy. The Food and Drink: This is a great highlight to this boat. Open bar with premium brands are a good perk., The whole boat has it making it very easy to get drinks. Never really have to wait for a drink. Plus at the end of the cruise no bar tab. Restaurants are great as well. Dined in the "Crossings" every night and the food was fine. For an upgrade experience I would go for the French Restaurant. Excellent dinner. Also, the buffet has something for everyone and is quick and easy. Overall I think this is a perfect boat. Not too big so its easy to get around. Great beverage package that keeps the boat upbeat. Amazing staff. One of the best bargains offered at sea. Will return. Read Less
