Sail Date: May 04, 2009
Ship: Norwegian Sky
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 4 years ago

The ship was clean and in good condition for an older ship, however the layout is poor. The room was extremely small, even for an inside cabin. The rear deck area and bar was nice with ample shade however the bar closed early. This forced you into the center pool area where the only outdoor bar that was open late was located. The DJ at the pool area played music not suited for the crowd ( with the exception of the white hot party night ) at ear splitting volume even though on most nights there were only 20-30 people in the bar/pool area. This made it impossible to hear one another even when yelling while seated at the same table. It was enough to drive you away. The only other bar areas open late were the smoky casino or the ( appropriately ) loud disco. Food was extremely average, and dont order the ribeye, it belonged on a roll with onions peppers and cheese. It was about as thin as a good Philly steak sandwich steak. 

Food and Dining

Average at best. Fish dishes were good beef, not so much. Not a lot of variety on the menu.

Staff was very good all around the ship. Except for the DJ.

Ship Quality

Poor layout, hard to get from one end to the other without cutting through buffet etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Very small, hard bed. Would not want to share this small space with someone I wasn't intimate with.

Ship Tip

Bring earplugs if you want to enjoy the deck in the evening.

Take the harbor cruise to see the city sights.

Paradise cove for snorkeling, book it yourself. Way cheaper then ship excursions and way less people. The staff there was great.

We booked an excursion to Sandy Toes (Rose Island) on our own. Great day!

Small beach area, not much to do if your not into laying on the beach.
