Sail Date: October 18, 2010 Ship: Norwegian Sky Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship itself was not bad. The overall condition was good and presentable. The ship appeared to be well maintained.
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
The food was spectacular! The free dining was great and available 24/7 and even the dinners that required a "cover charge" were great also.
3 out of 5
Seminars, bingo, and auctions seemed to be the majority of the activities. There were a few shows, but not many. The quality of the shows was somewhat enjoyable.
Service and Staff
1 out of 5
Had some unfortunate encounters with the staff right from the start. It was hit and miss in regards to treatment fromt he crew. Some crew treated us great, while others did not seem to really put any effort in what they were doing.
3 out of 5
The ship was a small/older ship. Public areas and decor resembled that of a normal hotel lobby area. Nothing too flashy (didn't need to be), but fit well. It was hard to move throughout certain areas of the boat (certain dining room layouts were very narrow).
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
Rooms were small (as expected), but well maintained. The only downfall was the bed and pillows, extremely uncomfortalbe and made it hard to get a decent night sleep.
The beach was gorgeous, but didn't offer a whole lot to do except snorkel or swim (snorkeling was worth the money). Hippo slide is not worth the extra money. Great for a relaxtion spot, but if you're looking for a lot of activities, this may not be one of your more enjoyable spots.
