Ship: Norwegian Sky (RETIRED) 139 Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship is very beautiful and well designed. Overall we had a good time even though we encountered a few problems. Our room was very small but nice; we were on the 4th floor in an outside cabin along with our friends whom also had a room on the same floor. SERVICE: Our room steward, waiter and busboy all did a fabulous job and we were very impressed. MEALS: We had our assigned seating in the 4 Season's dining room and the food and service as always good. But it you ever make it on board you need to dine at Le Bistro at least twice. The food and service was excellent, we just couldn't get enough of it. Breakfast was average, most morning we just ordered room service and they had a very limited selection that you could choose from. Unfortunately you could only go to a sit down breakfast until 9:30 a.m. and with everything else there was to do aboard the ship getting up early for breakfast just wasn't something that I wanted to do. We really enjoyed lunch and got to meet some interesting new people. THEATER: All of the performances that we saw we really enjoyed. The only problem was there was only one sometimes two cocktail servers for the whole theater. So, whenever we wanted something to drink we had to leave for 5-10 minutes to walk to the nearest location then come back. POOL: Again, only 2 days of the 7 days that we were up on deck was there any server walking around seeing if you would like something to drink. Service was definitely lacking! PORTS OF CALL: Out of four different ports that we were scheduled to go to all four of my exertions were either cancelled or filled up in 5 minutes after the desk opened. I got in line to sign up for my exertions 15 minutes before the desk even opened. Again, very disappointing.
