First I would like to compliment the staff onboard the Norwegian Sky, they worked hard to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted. The drill, excursions, and entertainment was very organized and easy to follow directions were given. Overall a very enjoyable and relaxing cruise:)
My 2 complaints:
-Freestyle dining is awesome and I was happy to see hand sanitizer being encouraged but the small size of the beverage cups left a lot to be desired. You already have to pay extra for soda but the juice and water cups were so small that you needed 3 to quench your thirst while dining.
-The internet policy on board was very confusing and absolutely ridiculous price wise. When boarding you are ask to put a credit card on file for incidentals which is tied to your cabin number. I have no issue with this but when anyone staying in the cabin, specifically those underage, are allowed to make purchases there can be all kinds of issues. Kids all have devices such as smart phones and tablets, they know to connect to wifi, what they don't do is read the fine print about pricing. I ended up incurring over $500 in internet charges because my 13 year-old was text messaging her friends with absolutely no idea of what it would cost.

Very easy to navigate and plenty of variety to choose from when it comes to dining. The buffet was average food wise, really enjoyed the fish at the sit down restaurant on the 5th deck.
