I love this ship! The people are wonderful, everything is always sparkling clean! The only thing I would recommend staying away from is the buffet food (unless you’re drunk) and the room service food! Other than that I would highly recommend Sky!!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining room and specialty restaurant foods were amazing!! My fiancé and I especially like Cagney’s! Drinks are always great! Have a really nice selection! Stay away from buffet and room service food! Unless it’s the late night buffet and you’re drunk and don’t care what the food tastes like!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Not a whole lot to physically do unless you’re into pools and a fitness center! They do offer some nice morning yoga classes and sunset stretch classes with an awesome ocean view!

Shows were great! Nice variety of music! Reggae, pop, a piano man, even soft rock and country for those into that! Also had a great comedian on board! Only got to see his family friendly show but he also did an adult only show that I’m sure was hilarious! DJs keep it bumpin in Dazzles until 2am every night!

Service and Staff

The staff onboard is awesome! Such a variety of cultures that all love to share their stories and are also interested in yours!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This ship is being cleaned 24/7!! Their standards of cleanliness are absolutely outstanding! This ship is 19 years old and everything looks brand new! I can’t say enough about how clean everything is! Once you get to know the ship the layout is pretty easy to understand and navigate!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The first cruise we went on we stayed in a room with no window. It was always dark and I didn’t realize how much of a difference a window makes in the entire cruising experience! We had a large picture window and I was in love with it! It was so nice to wake up and look out to see our destination that day! Even sailing was fun to watch, esp at night when you’re in your pjs, you can just lounge in bed and watch the waves! I’ll never cruise again without at least having a window!

Ship tip

Stay away from buffet and room service food!

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas Did not visit port

The water was too rough for us from the ship to the island
