Great Vacation, Average Cruise

Sail Date: August 03, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Overall we had a great time going on vacation together as a family. We took five family members and stayed in two rooms 3 and 2. The rooms were adequate for our needs. The food was just average and more often than not the only food available was the low end buffet. the wait staff was unpleasant in the restaurants and bars. Menus in the nicer restaurants seemed to be identical to each other. I would like to have seen more of a variety.

Pros: Entertainment - Cruise Director and entertainers were top notch

Cons: Food was average, small portions, and wait staff was often rude and unpleasant

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!

Service and Staff
Cruise director and his group were great. Cabin boy and his staff were great. Wait staff in bars and restaurants were rude and unpleasant. Also, the cooks that prepared "made to order" meals were slow and were rude. My wife was told that the buffet line was not ready to open...she was told to come back later. It was already a few minutes late in opening and after my wife left the line the staff immediately opened the line.
Food and Dining
see above.
Ship Quality
Adequate. Very clean and really liked the hand sanitiser being so plentiful.
Cabin / Stateroom
Plenty of linen, plenty of towels, staff was present and helpful.
Great...cannnot say enough about how much we liked the entertainment. This would keep me coming back.
