Food and Dining

1 out of 5
nothing outstanding, pretty average dining experience - to get better food you need to pay for specialty restaurants. shrimp cocktail was a joke- corned beef hash like none I've ever has "in a bad way" - and who puts turkey in a ceasar salad??? the cooks leave something to be desired late nite dining very limited


3 out of 5

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
nobody goes out of their way, maybe due to cruise line pre-paying gratuity - never got intro to cabin steward - nothing like other cruise experiences

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
nice decor and holiday decorations

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
low quality sheets w/ lint balls - smaller than carnival's inside cabins - inadequate drawer space

Pros: freestyle dining - lounges

Cons: NCL consistently does not visit Great Stirrup Cay (their private island) --- to get better food (shrimp, lobster) you must pay at specialty restuarants

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!
