Overall it was a nice cruising experience. The freestyle cruising is different than the cruises that I've been on before. There were pros and cons to it. The ship was nice, staff were pretty friendly-we didn't get to know them as well as we have on other cruises because the staff were not consistent. Norwegian's Island Great Stirrup Cay was a HUGE disappointment. There really wasn't anything to do there. There were about 5 straw huts shops, a bar, a buffet and the beach... not at all what we had expected or experienced on other cruise line islands.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was good. They didn't offer a lot of variety on the buffet or for night owls but what was served in the main dining area was good.


5 out of 5
Entertainment options were great, the quality of the dancers and the comedian was very impressive.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The freestyle cruising doesn't allow you to have a fun camraderie with dining staff the way that you do on a cruise with set dining times and I thought that was a major disappointment.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The layout of this ship definitely was not as smooth or flowing as some of the other ships that I've been on but the ship itself was nice. The rooms were nice and so were all of the public areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great space, was very comfy and the attendants were great.

Pros: Entertainment

Cons: Great Stirrup Cay

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!
