What an enjoyable vacation.  Just LOVED the Sky.  The crew members were exceptional.  The officers top notch.  Now this is how to cruise!  Went on a Celebrity cruise and that was not a relaxing vacation.  It has far to many shopping venues on the ship making it like a mall.  I could stay home and go to the mall.  Celebrity's cafe also has a scattered layout.  You had to go from station to station to get food and then your eggs were cold by the time you got toast.  On the Sky as with all NCL ships we have cruised the layout flows.  Also the Sky has many public places to sit by windows and 'view' the ocean.  On Celebrity there were very few options to just sit quietly and watch the time slip by.  We had done a back to back on the Sky and they KNOW how to get the 'in transent' passengers off and on the ship in 30 minutes.  No other cruise line has done that  EVER.  One time we had to wait 4 hours and reboard with new embarkation passengers!

Ship Quality
Very well maintained. Clean and comfortable
Food and Dining
They KNOW how to do spaghetti right. They make it in the buffet to order. The eggs also and they are perfect. Loved the fresh made crepes. Ate at Cagney's food was top notch
Service and Staff
All the officers on this ship are so attentive to your needs. Carlos went above and beyond to be sure we had jalapeno's for our fried eggs even! Service in Cagney's exceptional we were even serenaded.
We truly enjoyed Barry the piano player every night. Great entertainer for sure.
Onboard Activities
We generally relax when on board might take in a movie if one is showing but generally read and/or play cards.
Destinations and Excursions
Anytime you can leave a 2 foot snow storm behind and go to the Bahamas that is super. Finally got to stir up cay after 4 cruises and all bad weather. That was enjoyable for sure got to swim and relax .
Nassau, Bahamas
Walked about as we love to do on our own and went to our favorite restaurant there Athena Cafe. Upstairs over a jewelery store sit on balcony if possible
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Just relaxing! Got to swim and just sit back. Food was good they brought off the ship. Even swam with a stingray that was neat.


Loved the spaghetti, fresh cooked eggs and the crepes made fresh the way you like, also. In general most of the buffet foods on the cruise lines we have been on is pretty basic with a 'speciality' night here and there but on NCL they try harder by cooking a number of things fresh
