Review summary

We really made the best of this cruise experience, because we were going to visit Cuba. I think if we were not we would have been disappointed due to high volume at the buffets, pool area and tight sleeping arrangement.

We notified Norwegian Sky ahead of time to make provisions for my son who is intellectually disabled. We arrived before our timed scheduled and followed all procedures according to staff that was there. We were told to fill out some health forms and wait for a wheelchair assistance. We sat there for a while and then asked again for assistance we soon learned that we were forgotten and wheelchair was given to another family.

Onboard Activities

My son and husband went to the pool. There were only two pools in the ship and it was always crowded.

The ship's stage shows were really professional we enjoyed them all. Some of the musicians and DJs on the ship were very talented, however, some of the music was either too loud or off key.

Cabin / Stateroom

If you are a couple this is a decent size, but it is too small to accommodate more than that.

Ship tip

Be flexible and enjoy yourself. Definitely see the shows and eat at the dining rooms. Avoid the buffet areas as much as possible.
