my partner and I are slightly addicting to cruising and cruise alot on RCCL and Celebrity but we are thinking of trying NCL in febuary sailing on the Sky.
Has any one sailed on it before?? what did you think?? any tips or inside info that you think 2 gays from London might need to know??
I was on the Sky two years ago, on a 3-night trip to the Bahamas. The shorter cruises tend to attract a party crowd, so it won't be a sedate cruise.
This ship probably has the fewest amenities of all NCL ships, and it is a bit on the older side. I don't think the ship is indicative of the newer Norwegian product, nor will it live up to your Celebrity experience.
I have enjoyed several cruises on NCL, and I especially enjoy the Freestyle concept. The newer ships are on-par with RCCL, but you might want to downgrade expectations for the Sky.
Hope this helps.
