All in all this was a great trip. The ship was awesome, staff was very attentive and the food was good (not excellent). The production shows were like none I've seen on other cruises. I felt like the days at sea did not offer enough on board activities. Most activities centered around some service they were trying to sell.
This was my second trip on the NCL Sky, the first being the summer of 2013 and then April, 2015. I will have to say the comic for this cruise was awesome, but the piano player in the bar was sub-par. It took several attempts to engage the room steward to get extra towels and ice, but by the second day, he was in the groove. Food was really good, but as usual, don't expect to get the lobster and shrimp on this trip unless you plan on eating in one of the special dining rooms for a surcharge. But, I feel like most cruise lines are going this direction. I would have given this cruise a 3 star due to the service on the ship and food, but the Out Island and Casino make up for any short comings on the ship. NCL has done an amazing job with this island. I noticed many upgrades and improvements since my trip in 2013. The staff in the Casino was awesome and took my money with a smile and a laugh. :-)
