The Norwegian Sky was originally launched in 1999 with Dottie Kulasa as her Cruise Director.
A ship that dates back to a time when Norwegian Cruise Line was operated by the Kloster family is sailing again from Miami.
The Sky was built in Germany and launched in 1999. It has been through several significant refits over the years. Renamed the Pride of Aloha in 2004, the ship sailed out of Hawaii as part of the Norwegian American cruise line.
The Sky will sail from the new NCL terminal in Miami and begin a year-round program of Bahamas and Caribbean cruises. Its first post-pandemic sailing will be a five-night cruise to Cozumel and Key West also features a visit to Great Stirrup Cay – Norwegian’s private island in the Bahamas.
Through late April, the Sky continues to offer a series of short three- and four-night cruises in the region, adding calls to Nassau, Freeport, and more. The Sky will begin unusual longer sailings to the Eastern Caribbean in May. With four different departure dates, the itinerary includes stops in St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Grand Turk, Amber Cove and San Juan.
