Great first cruise

Sail Date: December 09, 2011

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

First-time cruise was great. Food options were a highlight. I wanted a lot of time alone, so my balcony stateroom was great for that. I love that balcony. Staff was incredibly helpful. I'm ready to go againmaybe in 2 months! $12/day "service charge" announced on last day put bad taste in my mouth. Notify us of this amount upfront.

Pros: Dining, Service, Balcony Stateroom

Cons: Surprise service charge, canceled excursions

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!

Ship Quality
The place was clean. Elevator wait was long at times--not sure if that can be helped.
Orientation meeting first afternoon was very helpful. Several excursions I wanted to go on got cancelled--understandable circumstances in some cases, but disappointing. All the dances/contests were not my thing, so I'd like to see some entertainment/activities that were more interesting.
Food and Dining
Dining options were great. Quality of service in Palace was excellent, as were the quality and choice of food.
Cabin / Stateroom
My balcony stateroom was smallbut awesome. Bed was great, room was well-lit, temp was good, and balcony was fantastic.
Service and Staff
Very helpful, and always eager to help.
