1st cruise experience was a very nice one on the NCL Sky! The ship was practically full to capacity but it was possible to find less crowded areas all times of day, no trouble going to dinner. The room was very nice, definitely liked the balcony view, especially when leaving ports, great photos! The food was quite good, particularly in the specially restaurants. The only two issues we really had was the initial safety drill...everyone was called to the assembly stations where we stood very crowded for quite some time only to be shown how to put on a life vest, nothing about the life boats, etc. And...the windows were water marked and streaked everywhere. It was definitely more than just sea spray, even our cabin window needed some windex...when we got back to port and they were spraying off the boat with a hose that kind of explained it but it would be nice to go back and squeegee.
