She probably hasn't been on the Sky! The more I am thinking about this. It seems like they had healthier choices like a turkey meatloaf or something like that. I went and looked at my last review and there were no comments so seems like it didn't make much of an impression. Maybe it is different now. Hopefully, someone will chime in who has a more recent experience.

Only thing i ever saw in the Italian Restaurant was the Pizza. Was usually pretty empty in there. Its in a strange location as part of it is a walkway to get from the pools to the AFT on the Port Side.

FYI on Paddle boarding, this books up fast. These sold out a week prior to our cruise.

I’m assuming the answer is no but, do you happen to know if the balcony cabins on the Sky have a coffee maker in the room? My husband is always much happier if he can have a cup of coffee before leaving the cabin �� I know we can order it through room service but we have been in the Haven or a suite on our 2 previous cruises in the last year and he has been spoiled by having a coffee pot in the room. Thanks!

Hi tomberly,

We were on the Sky 2/9/18-2/12/18. We were in a balcony on the 9th deck. There was a small single cup coffee maker in the room.

We had a great time on the Sky. On deck 7 there is a coffee bar that serves up the fancy stuff, but it isn't complimentary.

Enjoy the Sky, we enjoyed ourselves.

Regards

Vinegarjoe

Thank you for your help. We are also on deck 9 in a balcony. I’m so glad you enjoyed the Sky. We are very excited to be going on the Sky and visiting Cuba.

Hi, we will be going on the Sky soon, and we are a little nervous because we've heard a couple of negative things.
How is the food on the Sky? Also, do the Palace and Crossings Main Dining Room have the same menus?
Thank you!

Quick general tips: Bring an extension cord for rooms, only 1 outlet in our oceanview room.

At GSC they use Tender Tickets, they announce that 1 person from each party should go to Dazzles to report their group size and receive their Tender time. However, if you go with your full group and are ready to get off immediately, they will put you on the next available Tender.
You could order sushi in the Plantation Club lounge on deck 12, next door to Cagney's. I don't care for sushi so didn't order any, but people at other tables did order it. Not sure how much it was or if you had to pay extra for it, but I'm assuming it wasn't free.

At lunch, Il Adagio is pizza. Didn't see any other Italian dishes in there, just pizza.

Its like the buffet pizza and pasta but served in the Italian restaurant. The pizza you would get at the Italian restaurant is totally different and better than what they serve at lunch.

How were the Spring Breakers?! I’m assuming there were a lot. Any issues? Longer than normal drink wait times? Any out if the ordinary unruly behavior? We are on the Sky on Monday!! Can’t wait.
