This was our 14th NCL cruise but our first on the Sky. I was joined by my wife, son (21), and daughter (18). I will first review the ship and then review Cuba. SKY First, a few words about the Sky. The staff was absolutely the most friendly out of any of the 20 cruises we have been on. They did not just welcome us to every venue, bar, and restaurant; they emphatically thanked us for joining them for the week. Simply outstanding service. The Sky itself was in much better condition than we have read in some other reviews. It is old. But it is clean and well maintained. The Sky is the smallest ship we have cruised on (our last two cruises were on the Epic and Escape). The advantage was no lines, ever. We found deck chairs whenever we wanted, never waited for a table in the dining rooms, and walked off the ship when we were ready to leave. The entertainment venues were not as polished as other larger, newer ships. But the performers did their best with the space they had. We might have gotten bored if this was a 7-day cruise. But the Sky was just fantastic for a 4-day cruise. One tip: If you like a quiet cabin, get a room on deck 6. These cabins are isolated from the rest of the ship. CUBA Like the Sky, Cuba was a very pleasant surprise. Part of the surprise was that ships dock right in the center of Old Havana. So you can walk on and off the ship as often as you like without any issues. As per our usual practice, we did not purchase an excursion on the ship. Instead, we had a tremendous adventure by putting together our own itinerary. Actually, all I did was spend about 1/2 hour searching the internet the night before. 1) Walking tour of Old Havana to orient ourselves 2) Found a great English-speaking driver and a beautiful restored 50's lime green Dodge convertible to take us on a 2.5 hour guided tour. The tour included detailed reviews of Old Havana, New Havana, brief visits to all three forts, a stop at the Bay of Pigs memorial, time at Revolution Square, and a photo stop at the Cristos statue. 3) Hopped on the ship for a quick lunch 4) Walked to the Almacenes San Jose Artisans market. Hundreds of booths selling mostly the same stuff at just "fair" prices. It seemed to be the Cuban equivalent of Nassau's straw market. 5) Took a cab to Santa Maria Del Mar and spent 2.5 hours on the beach. Nice sand but a bit rocky just at the waters edge. Caught a very interesting cab back to the ship: A restored 50's wagon that had been in the driver's family for 45 years. His father gave it to him when he retired as a cab driver, and he is about to give it to his son. 6) Quick shower and dinner in the dining room. 7) Walk off the ship and search for night life in Old Havana. We didn't find much. We were told the next day that a cab could have taken us to all of the hot spots. But at that point we were pretty worn out anyway. 8) Get back on the ship at 1 am and collapse in our beds, absolutely marveling at what a delightful day we had. In conclusion, the Sky's Cuba itinerary is a tremendous value and well worth the trip. Frankly, it was a better value than we thought, since we didn't realize that drinks were included until the second day! Read Less

The food/buffets could have been better. And should not be repeated everyday. Best thing was open bar, too forget the food. Dinner at the restaurants-worth it! Comedian was great! So funny! First stop-pvt island-loved it. Family Cabana very nice-complimentary fruit was one small plate. Towels/floats supplied. 50$ reimbursement of food, it was just ok. It’s still Buffett and open bar on beach FYI. Second stop is all about gold mostly. It’s a town of shops. Shows on board, were good but could have been better. Casino. Starbucks, Sushi bar. All white party-tu don’t have to be in all white FYI: any color. Teen club-you need to register them in with an adult. Arcade budget go with the deal-they use there room card. Shampoo/conditioner lotion included. No toothpaste. Best drink-bush wacker! Follow the fish on the rug for front of ship. They put the beach loungers away much too early. It was great to see Bahamas. Cuba is next for Me! Read Less

I was looking for a quick cruise that my wife and I could book. This one was perfect. We flew into Miami from Philadelphia and stayed overnight in South Beach. The next day we were on the first boarding group to board the ship. Embarkation was very easy and we were eating lunch onboard by Noon. The ship is an older one, but it just went through a renovation so a lot of the stuff was new. We were upgraded into a Family Picture Window Suite the day before sailing. The pools and bars were great. It was a short cruise so there were to a lot of kids running around. I also enjoyed the Main Dining halls. I did not go to any Specialty Restaurants. The buffet was like others buffets. The service was very good and everyone working on the ship was friendly. It was rare to pass a member of the crew without getting a "Hello" or "Good Morning", etc. Great Stirrup Cay was great. We missed this on our last cruise because the seas were too rough for the tenders. There were plenty of beach chairs available and a bar was never a far walk. It got a little rowdy on the tender back to the ship once the drunks were leaving the island, but it wasn't out of hand. My favorite room was the Spinnaker Lounge. It is in the very front of the ship and has great views. All in all this was a great cruise and I'd recommend it for somebody looking to get away for three days. Read Less
