We had a wonderful time. The professional photographers were amazing. They even made my ugly mug look decent. Our room steward was the best on the ship. The towel animals she left were incredible. Do remember to take extra cash with you to the private island as gratuities are not included in the price of the excursions. Plus you may run into someone like Paul, who went out of his way to see that we enjoyed our time there.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The steaks were awesome, not to mention how great the pasta dishes were; and soft-serve ice cream all day long. I think we gained over five pounds on this cruise.

You never know what you'll find. We were out walking and found a jazz band in the Outrigger Lounge. They were smooth and put the finishing touch on a great day sailing.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The wait-staff, the bar tenders, the entertainment people, everyone was always smiling and friendly with a cheery "Good morning," or "Good afternoon."

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Maybe some doors on the casino entrance to keep the smoke-filled air from the elevator and shopping areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had the best Steward on the boat. Our cabin was just outside the children's play area and only heard one child running in the hall, but nothing from the play area.

We took the bus tour of Forts Charolette and Fincastle, and Atlantis. We ate at the Hard Rock Cafe - great burger.
Don't Miss: The Queen's staircase - it's cut out of solid limestone.

As I said before, take extra cash for tips. Paul was a great help to us as was the parasailing guys on the boat.
Don't Miss: The parasailing was great!

Pros: The ship, the food, the staff were amazing.

Cons: The smoky casino air spilled into the common areas and the shopping areas.

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!
