A first time cruiser would probably find this ship enjoyable, but as a seasoned traveler most enjoyable item on this crusie was the floral painting on the side of the ship. We wanted to sample "Freestyle Cruising" and took this cruise for a reference point for future traveles. Although we found the concept to be attractive, the exicutation left much to be desired. The food was poor, the service was slow and the amenities were lacking.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
It's sad to say that the best food was available in the buffett. Although the speciality restaurants were charming, the food preparation was lacking. Food was overcooked and portions served cold. During one seating with 8 people, 6 servings were incorrect betwen the appetizers, entrees and desserts, something that wouldn't be acceptable at McDonalds.

Average at best.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Although friendly, the service was very slow.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
The ship is small and as such lacking the public areas expected. The pool deck lacked adequate confortable seating in shaded areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Our balcony stateroom was smaller than an inside cabin we had on another cruise line. There was no dresser and very little drawer space, let alone any space to move around.

With each cruise line trying to do something different than the other, purchasing your own island shouldn't be on the list. Stirrup Cay is an example of an effort that didn't make the mark. A private island roughly the size of 2 football fields just doesn't offord something out of the ordinary.

Pros: The most positive item of this cruise was that we didn't hit any icebergs

Cons: The ship, the cabin, the food, the service, the deck chairs, and the ship in general

Recommends Norwegian Sky? No.
