We love Norwegian cruise line and have cruised with them many times in the past.
Was NOT impressed with the Sky what so ever. This ship was not originally built for NCL and it is apparent. It does have many of the same great features as most of the other NCL ships. The SKY has/is transitioning to a free drinks (YEP ALCOHOL too) and while that sounds great NCL needs to take some steps and responsibility to serve people appropriately. We saw numerous EXTREMLY drunk folks on the ship on several occasions. On the first day at sea two guest got in a big fight in the casino and it moved into the main atrium. With tons of people watching a black guest was wrestled very roughly by security. It was not pleasant to watch! While the other guest a white older gentleman was cussing and threating people and was taken away by security he was not handcuffed nor did security do anything to stop him from threatening numerous guests. ''
We saw several female guests on numerous occasions throwing up around the ship and proclaiming how very drunk they were. For a company that proclaims GUEST SAFETY FIRST NCL clearly needs to do more to secure their ship and serve alcohol more responsibly.
We didn't get to go to the Great Stirrup Cay (PRIVATE ISLAND) due to some rough seas. As disappointed as we were we did respect their desire to try to keep guests safe. Again why we sail NCL again and again - Safety first!
Its so nice to be and feel FREE @ Sea with NCL. They do have some changes to make for sure on this ship but we still love them and will set sale on Escape this month.

Cabin / Stateroom
If you are going to eat at the buffet make sure you familiarize yourself with their hours because they are closed more than they were open.
Take time if you can to eat in the main dining rooms. Good menu and selection of food.
