On Board The Norwegian Sky

First Day of the Cruise was truly fun especially for me because it was my first time. This is the Deck 11, the location of the poolside, Garden Buffet, Great Outdoor, Breaker's Bar, Longboard Bar, Outrigger Lounge, Fitness Center, Jacuzzis, Mandara Spa and Salon, Sauna and Steam Room and II Adagio Fine Dining. During this time, we are all checking the areas of the ship and find our way to the Garden Cafe' to eat.We were acquainted to the other guests and most of them are seasoned cruisers. They said that this Freestyle Cruising is the best. One: Norwegian has complimentary dining and that would mean: Guests can eat any time and anywhere to the main dining rooms, casual cafes', self-service buffets, or avail the room service and guests can have the "made-to-order" food available from 5AM to midnight, all for FREE! That is amazing! Guests do not have to pick the time when to eat and of course, you do not have to sit with the same people over and over again! During dining, the dress code is not strict even if you choose the fine dining. Resorts casual and shorts are allowed in all dining areas and venues but, wear your shoes and shirts though. Most of the guests are wearing formal dress in the fine dining, I suggest you have to wear that too. The ambiance is cozy and elegant, you might as well wear a formal attire.
In all honesty, you will never get hungry in a freestyle dining cruises of NCL. If in case you are hungry for food after midnight, you can have the room service and they charge only less than $4 and the food is FREE. Now, that will cost you money in other cruise ship.
The picture above is the Miami city. We sail away at exactly 5PM and the party continues at the poolside for the BBQ! Actually, the activities on the cruise ship started at 11:30AM while the ship was still embarking the guests. There were Sudoku and Crosswords at the Library, Basketball Open Play, Live Music at the Atrium, Kid's Corner is open too, Golf Driving Range for golf enthusiasts, live music at the poolside where we frequent. Guests were just checking really what's ahead of this cruising. Some attended the sky ship tour and listen to the shore excursion presentation. As for us, we just took a table on the Deck 11, eat and mingle with people. It was really interesting and fun.By 4:30 PM, everyone had to proceed to the Assembly Station for Mandatory Life Boat Drill. Our key card has a G name on it and that means we have to find the Station G. I noticed that guests were not taking the drill seriously. It took them a long time to gather the guests to their respective stations. It reminds me the situation of TITANIC where people wanted to be the first on the life boat. Since, this is only a drill few are paying attention. Well, I observe that on the plane too. Anyway, public areas were close and all guests were accounted for at the Assembly Station. If something happens, this life boat above us will be our refuge and it's big. It can accommodate 150 passengers. After the Mandatory Life Boat Drill, we head to the Fwd area of the ship and we stayed right here to watch the Miami City as we sail away. This is the Deck 12 of the Norwegian Sky. The party continues in every Deck of the cruise ship and yap, music is everywhere. It was a gloomy day and it drizzles a bit but, the fun and excitement was sky limit!
