    Mini Bar Prices on the "SKY" ?

    i didnt request a fridge, but we had one. everyone in my group had one, actually. unfortunately, there was no room for anything other than what it was stocked with. my group was somewhere around 9150. toward aft.

    3-night Sky questions

    the special for the 250 deposit was not just on the first day. they were hawking it the whole time i was on board.

    Sneaking Alcohol On

    1. the alcohol is confiscated until the end of the cruise. 2.just hope that you dont end up like one of the guys in my party that had it leak all over the luggage. coincidentally, his luggage was singled out to be inspected. 3.for an adult, they simply confiscate it until the end of the trip. i dont know, but do you really want to put a kid in that position? to find out what they would do to a kid caught trying to sneak it on? not worth it. i was under the impression that cruise lines were somewhat permissive in regards to alcohol being brought onboard, but my experience says otherwise. i think with the current economy, more and more people are attempting to sneak it on. at the same time, this economy is making the cruise lines tighten their belts (just like everyone else) and they are finding a lot. good luck.;)

    Health Form at Embarkation

    iirc, it pertains to your current health status and whether or not you may have some sort of illness that could be spread to other passengers on the ship.

    Sky review-January 23rd sailing

    im sure i will omit a few things, but... OTC asthma meds (it rarely acts up, and i didnt think to bring it - and the ship's medical center wanted to charge me $200 for a $12 inhaler) tylenol pm (so i could have gone to sleep when i found myself wide awake at 4am) water bottles ($4.50 on the ship) snorkel gear my old flip flops (i still have sore toes from the new sandals i got for the cruise) my wife says her ipod with the little speakers for the beach.

    Sky review-January 23rd sailing

    CruisnGram - great review - very in-depth! balanced, negative and positive. i will also chime in that both embarkation and disembark were very smooth - all of 10 minutes each way, with no lines...of course, the secret is to do it early and beat the crowds. overall, i had a great time - it is what you make of it. i will say that the "cover charge" restaurants are great. the main dining is fine, too, but crowded and understaffed. if anyone finds themselves in the main dining halls, just understand that it might be a while before you get served drinks. sorry if that was my group at 3am. we were right down the hall from you! i learned a few things on my first cruise. one of them is to be better prepared as to what i want to bring with me. now i know and the next cruise will be even better!

    Assaulted on Norwegian Sky & Review

    i know this is silly to argue the point, but... the State of Florida defines the following... 784.011 Assault.-- (1) An "assault" is an intentional, unlawful threat by word or act to do violence to the person of another, coupled with an apparent ability to do so, and doing some act which creates a well-founded fear in such other person that such violence is imminent. 784.03 Battery.-- (1)(a) The offense of battery occurs when a person: 1. Actually and intentionally touches or strikes another person against the will of the other. if the photographer actually pushed, then it would be battery.

    HELP!!!!!!!The spirit cabin #10670

    just curious - how are you going to be on your honeymoon if you have been married for 25 years? if you dont want to be near the kids, call the cruise line and get the room changed. the childrens program will probably only be open during business hours; control yourself until later :rolleyes:

    How to dress in early Feb?

    right now it is in the low - mid 70s. not exactly bath tub water, but warm enough to swim in.
