carlaw- We cruised with my 93 yr old mother and thoroughly enjoyed the amenities aboard the NCL Sky!! The Cabins were excellent and comfortable, food in the main dining rooms was excellent along with the service. Yes, there were lines at the grand buffet but if you wander back to the Lanai there are excellent secondary buffets with much shorter lines......seating was never a problem.....never a wait!!!! This is a fun cruise worthy of repeating....we experienced excellent crusing for a very small price!!!! The NCL Sky is a great , very friendly ship with a great crew!!! There are good and bad reviews of all ships...I've learned to ignore them and to judge for myself. In 56 years of cruising I've experienced rough cruises but,in all honesty,I've never really had a bad one!!
