We are slated to go in October and would appreciate anyone's experiences
Has anyone sailed on the Norwegian Sky?
Can't help with that particular ship, but I can help a bit with some NCL tips.
If you've never cruised with Norwegian, here is the first tip.....relax. It's an easy going company. I would suggest booking any premium dining ahead of time on line in order to get the time you want. Prebook excursions too. Prepay gratuities, if only so it's one less thing on your final bill. Again, relax. Don't try to do things and say, well, on Carnival we did this or got that. NCL is a different experience than the other lines. No set dinner time. But be aware of the dining room times. They may have been shortened. Check your Freestyle Daily every night. Don't expect a lot of photographers at every turn. You may have to look for one for a photo, except for the usual photo set ups. Ignore the negative reviews.
Have a great cruise.
Thanks Bak. We have sailed 3 times with Carnival and I would never compare lines because we know that they are always different. I appreciate the advice and always take any new experience with a grain of salt. We always try to book and pay for everything in advance, so that way we go and relax! It is all about the chill factor with us :)
