We are planning a cruise of the Southern Caribbean this winter, and would appreciate any information on the Sky or Majesty. The ports are about the same so any information on the quality of the ships would be great. Also how did you like freestyle cruising?

Hi!

Both ships were not originally built for NCL ("Norwegian Sky" completed for them, however), and both feature rather small standard cabins. The "Majesty" was originally built for the short-cruise market and is generally less spacious. "Norwegian Sky" was originally planned as a sister ship of Costa's "CostaVictoria" and when NCL took over the unfinished hull, it was not possible any longer to make major structural changes. As a result of this, the ship's standard balcony cabins feature an oversized porthole next to the balcony door instead of floor-to-ceiling windows. "CostaOlympia" was not supposed to have any balconies at all.

Whether you like one ship or the other mainly depends on your expectations and preferences. "Norwegian Sky" is the more modern, more spacious and of course much larger ship (more amenities), while "Norwegian Majesty" is more intimate (less standing in lines etc.). I personally would prefer the "Sky", but that's my personal opinion only.

As far as freestyle cruising goes...people will tell you it has its good points and its bad points. I personally liked the flexibility of being able to dine or attend shows whenever it suited me. I think, however, that the quality of the service you get from the waitstaff falls off considerably when you don't have the same waiter and assistant waiter each night.

We did the Sky last year it was great 4th cruise. Have not done the Majesty. Freestyle is good if yu like to run your own cruise. I agree the waitstaff is a little less attntive in free style.
