Number of Cruises: 3
Cruise Line: Norwegian
Ship: Norwegian Sky
Sailing Date: August 12th, 2001
Itinerary: Ensenada to Pier 66 in Seattle
Entry process was efficient, well organized, quick. Ship is beautiful, yet not garish or neon. Ride was very smooth, one night on the open ocean a little bumpy, but the Transderm-Scop patch was compeletly effective. Food was great, and i was traveling with some people who might have been critical. No complaints from anybody.
Felt the ship could have offered a few more public bathrooms.
The piano/vocalist (Rob Ellis)at the Atrium on deck 7 is VERY GOOD.
You don't need a nightlight, extension cord, or have to worry about the beds being too hard (things i prepared for from reading previous reviews).
I would recommend you NOT sign up for shore excursions ahead of time. Most of them can be arranged for when you arrive at each port, and usually at a lower cost. Often when you get to a location, you might wish to use your time differently.
We were tempted to try Le Bistro and Horizon, but frankly were so happy with the normal dining rooms (4 Seasons and 7 Seas), that we ate all our major meals there.
We were VERY happy to have made the decision to sail in and out of Seattle, much easier than Vancouver, B.C.
