We cruised on the Sky in March 2015.  The advertised price was good.  We were disappointed when informed of the extra fees, not part of the shown price, especially the gratuities fee.  If such a fee is mandatory, why not show it in the price rather than be informed you must pay it AFTER booking the trip?  United should be obligated to inform customers of all mandatory fees prior to booking a trip.  The food on board was good and the shows were nice.  Our balcony stateroom needed an upgrade with older, dated fixtures and a marginally comfortable bed.  The service on board was good.  We chose the dining upgrade and really enjoyed the Le Bistro restaurant.  Cagneys may not be worth the money.  The ports were ok.  We really enjoyed our day kayaking/snorkeling at Peterson Cay while in Freeport.  We booked that tour on line with Calabash rather than using the cruise line offering for the same trip.  The price was much less (50%).

Ship Tip

Loved Le Bistro. Great room, great food, great service.

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

Had time on our return. We had a nice time by renting bikes from Bike & Roll. Good way to see Miami/South Beach
