Weather greatly affected our opinion of the ship. Under other circumstances it might have been fine. Free style dining is a great idea. Ship is small enough that most areas are easily accessable.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Free style is a great idea with 2 dining rooms and the buffet. However\, the passengers were mostly college age and never ate in the dining rooms prefering to drink beer and eat hotdogs and hamburgers by the pool. We usually like to sometimes be seated at a shared table where you can meet new people and enjoy company. Most tables weren't used and it was tables of 2

Service and Staff

Friendly and attentive

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Did have a period of about 4 hours where some of the toilets\, mostly in the staterooms did not function. This was probably caused by someone trying to flush something that they shouldn't have which can backpressure large sections of the ship

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had a balcony. The door did not seal tightly to the balcony. The temperature outside was in the high 50's\, low 60's. Winds sometime hit 40 knots (44 MPH). The door whistled and leaked cold air that the cabin heater couldn't handle so room was cold. Room itself was fine with a large bathroom.

Pros: Free Style Dining

Cons: Cabin noise and temperature

Recommends Norwegian Sky? No.
