Overall, we enjoyed our cruise very much. There were a few areas that were lacking, particularly compared to other cruises I've been on. The ship did a great job of avoiding bad weather caused by Hurricane Irene. We had warm sunny days every day. They did have to cancel one port of call and do a day at sea instead. In my past experience, when a port of call was cancelled the cruise line would offer a shipboard credit as a form of apology. No credits were given on this trip. Another port was also cancelled, but we were pleased when the port was changed to Key West, allowing us to get off the ship for a while. The biggest negative experience for our cruise was the dining room staff. The service was below what I would expect at a normal restaurant, let alone on a cruise ship. One thing about the dining that we did enjoy was that we did not have to share tables with other passengers. We had our own dining table for each meal.

Pros: Great weather, great food

Cons: Terrible dining room staff and service,

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!

Food and Dining
Dining room staff was terrible. Below what I would expect at a normal restaurant, let alone on a cruise. The staff in the specialty restaurant was excellent. Food was inconsistent in quality.
