The Center For Disease Control (CDC) performs unannounced inspections, which are conducted twice a year and required for any cruise ship with an international itinerary calling at a U.S. port. Vessels are evaluated proper food handling, preparation and storage procedures, and overall galley cleanliness. Ships’ potable water supplies used in spas and pools are evaluated, as well.

Norwegian Sky

norwegian sky cruise ship

The Norwegian Sky was initially ordered for Costa Cruise Line in 1993 but construction never finished until Norwegian Cruise Line purchased her in 1997. Following the acquisition by NCL she was radically redesigned. Design changes included two decks of balcony cabins (opposed to no balcony cabins in the original plans), three additional restaurants, entirely altered decor and moving the bridge down by one deck to accommodate an observation lounge/spa complex on the topmost deck.

The Ship was first launched in 1999 as the Norwegian Sky. NCL then re-flagged the Norwegian Sky as the Pride of Aloha in 2004 and she sailed the Hawaiian Islands. The Pride of Aloha was re-flagged back to the Norwegian Sky in 2008.

The ship features 13 dining options, 12 bars and lounges, two pools, five hot tubs, an onboard spa, casino and children's programming.
