Ship: Norwegian Sky
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was our first cruise and we found the staff to be very friendly. The layout of the ship was easy to figure out with the many diagrams available. The food was good. We did like the freestyle cruising aspect where we didn't have to eat at a given time, we could choose to eat when we wanted, something was always available. Our stateroom was comfortable and quiet and fit the four of us fairly well. The ship itself was kept very clean and attention to detail was excellent. The entertainment was terrific and our kids had a great time with the teen program. We were kept well informed re: ports of call, embarkation and debarkation information, entertainment and general information through the newsletters we received each night and through the PA system.

Food and Dining

Always a good selection to choose from. We did feel rushed eating at Cagneys (next course was served before we were finished with the previous one)
