Review summary

We like the Sky because it is a smaller ship. This was our 5th time on the Sky and we wanted to see the refurbishments. They were very nice. Service in the Palace dining room was not up to par. We had dinner there 5 nights and each time it was lacking enthusiasm by the waiters. They seemed rushed and overworked. Not as many working as before. We went for our anniversary dinner and turned in the anniversary card when we entered. We had our dinner and dessert and that was it. Waiter never came back to see if we needed anything, nor was our cake delivered to our table. Seems like we were forgotten. This was mentioned to the Asst Matre' D Agnelo Fernandes and he said to come back the next night and would personally make it right.....which he did. However, the server seemed to be lacking paying attention to our table. Seems like the overall staff on the ship has been reduced. Will that stop us from cruising SKY again...probably not.....we didn't let that ruin our cruise...... I do have to say they have the EASIEST debarkation process that we have ever done in over 16 cruises. In summary, if something doesn't work our quite right.....bring it to someones attention and move on and have a blast.

Loved it! Always good music/bands! This is where most of the "games" are played and Sky is good about getting audience participation! Everyone wins!!!!

Giselle and Minellie (bartenders at the Great Outdoors) were awesome. Always on top of their game and with a smile! The only bar we would go to!

Cabin / Stateroom

Inside handicap accessible room right near the elevator. Plenty of room to move around with mobility cart in there. Loved being around the corner from the elevator.....made it easier to navigate to/from elevator.

Ship tip

No matter what people say....just get out there and enjoy your vacation. If something doesn't go the way you planned.....brush it off and move on.
