Default Sky going into Drydock October 2013?

Hello!

I was wondering if anyone has heard any news about Sky going into dry dock next year. There are no cruises available the first 2 weeks in October. I checked the list on Cruise Critic of refurbishments and nothing is listed, but I did see something on another site that said it was going to dry dock in September 2013, but with no details.

Looking on possibly going in December 2013, and be nice to know what they are fixing up

If it is going into drydock, it will be like all of the others I'm sure. Ships upgrades to systems, carpet, maybe some rearranging, new suites, TV's etc. They all rotate through every few years.

Isnt the ship leased? Not sure NCL would spend money on a ship they dont own. But I hear so many versions, not sure what to think

The Sky was refurbished in 2009 so I doubt it would be pulled in that soon.

David--Ncl brought the Sky outright in July. go to Wickopedia and key on Norwegan Sky for the details. Ilovesailing-- ships have to be drydocked every 3 years or so for hull work so she is due.

Thanks for the info!

In order to perform routine maintenance, Norwegian Sky will be out of service in dry dock from September 30, 2013 to
October 14, 2013.

sure hope they refersh the suites, the OS look like they are from the 80's and the sofas are so beat up. here's to hoping that they remove the fringe from the lamps so I can book her.

The captain at the end of January said it was going into drydock in October. He didn't say what they were doing aside from a bunch of bridge work (we were on the bridge tour at the time).

here is hoping they do at least the softgoods in the suites, as the Sky is lovely and she deserves it.

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone has any updates on the Sky's dry dock at the end of September. NCL's press release doesn't specify and simply states routine maintenance . I know that some have mentioned bridge work but I'm curious if there will be any cabin refurbishments such as the installation of flat screen TV's. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

I have wanted to go back on the sky since our first cruise on her and would love to see the suites upgraded. As long as it doesn't get the price tag of the newer haven suites.

I know they're doing some reconfiguration of the bridge to bring her up to the rest of the fleet. Forget what else was on the list....

Although we sailed NCL Dreamward back in 1993, our first NCL after that was May 2012 on the Sky for 4 nights. We had such a great time on the Sky, we changed our RCCL Allure cruise to the Breakaway (we live in NY) for this past July. We loved the Breakaway and booked an S4 in the Haven on the Getaway for next August.
That being said, we are sailing the Sky again in an OS in March and I would LOVE to see some updating but with only 2 weeks, I'm sure there won't be much in way of the cabins but I can always have hope LOL

Default Dry dock

I am cruising on the October 11th out of Miami, so I doubt that it will be in dry dock at that time!

Ditto Karen. I was a bit surprised after I booked a few days ago that I read she would be in dry dock. Hmmmmm........
