Norwegian Sky Review by Shon Ford (Cruise Man 3000)

Issued into service in 1999, Norwegian Sky has been a gracing the high seas, dazzling thousands, for a little more than a decade. In 2004, Norwegian Sky was renovated and transformed into Pride of Aloha. While Pride of Aloha, she operated under NCL America Line sailing the Hawaiian Islands all year round. After servicing NCL America for four years, she was transferred back into the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet and rechristened with her original name. Upon her return to Norwegian Cruise Line, she has been servicing the Bahamas from Miami alternating three and four night cruises.
Sister to Norwegian SunNorwegian Sky boast a very vibrant décor and sails with a vivacious and inviting staff and crew. When she returned to the Norwegian cruise Line fleet, she kept the design she acquired when she was Pride of Aloha—the Hawaiian themed motifs truly make you feel you’re sailing the paradise of the pacific (including the hull work on the exterior of the ship which is a beautifully designed lei). Norwegian Sky offers ten dining options as well as ten bars and lounges. In addition to those great amenities, she sails with five hot tubs [Jacuzzis], two swimming pools, and even a separate children’s pool. If you ever plan to voyage to the Bahamas, Norwegian Sky would come as my top recommendation.
Norwegian Sky’s cruise rates are extremely reasonable—the perfect place to have a weekend getaway for the right price. I have seen prices for three night Bahamian voyages, as low as $109.00 per person (four night cruises have been priced as low as $129.00 per person)! Be sure to check out the Norwegian Cruise Line’s website ( for the latest deals they are offering for sailings on Norwegian Sky. Overall, Norwegian Sky gets 4.4 out of 5.0 from me and is one of my all-time favorites, hands down. Take a cruise on this beautiful vessel to the Bahamas, and begin to enjoy nothing but sky!
