Norwegian Sky overview
Despite being one of the smallest vessels in the fleet, Norwegian Sky offers the cruise line’s signature amenities, from the full-service Mandara Spa and Salon to its sports courts and Splash Academy children’s program. The ship boasts two golf driving nets, eight bars and lounges, and five outdoor hot tubs, including one that’s designated for kids. And for those who love to be entertained, Sky offers several high-energy shows, such as Rock You Tonight, the ship’s tribute to rock icons, and Showdown, a mock talent competition a la American Idol where the audience picks the winner.
Revitalized from bow to stern in 2019 through the multimillion-dollar Norwegian Edge program, Norwegian Sky came away from dry dock with several new venues, including a Starbucks-licensed shop, the Pinnacle Lounge, and Sushi Bar, and the vibrant Bliss Ultra Lounge. With updated recreation areas and common spaces, a renovated pool deck, and more seating in the ship’s lounges, Sky promises an improved passenger experience overall.
Norwegian Sky cruises range from 3 to 6 days, with destinations in the Bahamas and Caribbean. All of the ship’s voyages include an all-day stop at Norwegian’s own private island, Great Stirrup Cay, where passengers can snorkel, lounge on white sand beaches, and swim with dolphins. For busy travelers looking for a short weekend getaway, Norwegian Sky offers 3-day cruises to the Bahamas with ports of call in Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay.

Before you book
Why sail on Norwegian Sky: As one of Norwegian’s smallest ships, Sky should appeal to travelers who enjoy the intimacy of a smaller vessel and like to form connections with fellow passengers. The ship’s shorter itineraries may also appeal to busy cruisers looking for a tropical weekend getaway.
You should know: Norwegian Sky is one of the cruise line’s smallest ships. Travelers looking for the variety of dining, activity, and entertainment options available on a large ship won’t find them here and may prefer one of the fleet’s mega-ships such as Norwegian Encore or Norweigan Bliss.
