Norwegian Sky Video Review Deck by Deck

Pool area stage on the Norwegian Sky. They had a band playing for most of the day, and that added a lot to the atmosphere.

Dine Drink Travel sailed on the Norwegian Sky to Cuba earlier this month. We have already written about embarkation, the oceanview cabin, Le Bistro, and Cagney’s Steakhouse. We talked about the Norwegian upgrade process, and we have several more posts coming up. However, we have completed our videos of the ship. Today, I want to post the Norwegian Sky video review while talking just a little about the highlights of the trip. Because I don’t like having to watch one long video to find the thing I am looking for, I have provided several links below to videos concerning specific sections of the ship.

Norwegian Sky embarkation in Miami

Norwegian Sky embarkation in Miami was easy. This artwork on Deck 5 was one of the first things I saw.

We have previously posted about the embarkation process for Royal Caribbean in Galveston and for Carnival in Puerto Rico. Today, I want to describe the process of embarking on the Norwegian Sky in Miami. I will talk about some of the key things you want to be sure to do within your first few hours on board. Over the next several days, please follow us for more details on the excellent ship and trip. In summary, though, Norwegian Sky embarkation in Miami is really easy. Let’s talk about boarding time, lunch the first day, and business to take care of as soon as you board. Continue reading “Norwegian Sky embarkation in Miami”
