THE FOOD WAS GOOD, THE DRINKS WERE ALSO GOOD BUT VERY INCONSISTENT DEPENDING ON THE BARTENDER MAKING THEM, THE BAR BY THE POOL AREA WAS THE WORST AT MAKING DRINKS. OTHER THAN THAT, THE SERVICE WAS ALSO GOOD. YES, I WOULD RECOMMEND MU FRIENDS.
Booked a Cruise with Three ports of call, Freeport and Nassau, both in the Bahamas and great stirrup cay, Norwegian private island. The day after I paid in full for the cruise we got a email that the visit to stirrup key was cancelled, as it is under renovation, something that was not menwhen I called in to pay in full. Bummer as we really wanted to relax on a beach. Ok. Then instead of Freeport we went to key west instead, due to damage from hurricane Matthew . Ok I used to live in key west so to us it was no big deal
food: it seemed to me that most, if not all entrees were frozen, just heat and serve and not the best, the veal cordon blu cordon Bleu sucked, it was st cordon Bleu ill cold on the inside. The specialty restaurant le bistro was great, we should of book all our dinners there.
the open bar was, honestly, the only reason we booked this particular cruise as on previous cruises we paid 49.00 plus tax for the drink package, so this was a considerable savings for the two of us
all in all we would problems do this cruise again, with all ports of call as advertised and dinners in specialty restaurants, believe me it's worth the extra a la cart pricing
The Norwegian Sky is a nice ship, well maintained but the staterooms were a little "tired". The staff on the other hand were very energetic. Everyone went out of their way to make sure the passengers were well cared for.
The all inclusive alcohol did make for "lively Passengers".
Love the partying before the ship leaves out, next time you'll should allow people to bring there own bags to the room. I had to wait around for 2 hours when i could of been in the pool if I had my bag with me
This was my very first cruise and I had a great time. The staff was polite, attentive and the ship was being cleaned every second. The ship changed it destination cousr due to bad weather, however I did miss a thing. The enitre staff and crew kept everyone entertained until the very end of the cruise. The food was delicious, we paid for specialty dinning and it was not disappointing. We had a great time.
My wife and I really enjoyed this cruise line! It was the first time we have cruised with Norwegian but definitely not our last. The food was great and the drink package was fabulous too! The staff were very professional and have a lot to be proud of.
I've been on quite a few cruises and I feel I am able to make a fairly good comparison to previous cruises & cruise lines. Norwegian for us was just ok. It was our first Norwegian cruise and I don't think we'd try another one. The ship was old. We had a balcony room that was tiny. To say the food was average is being generous. We tried three of the extra fee restaurants and thought the food was no better then the dining room. On our first day a lot of the staff were not friendly at all. It wasn't until our second last night that we found our favorite person on the whole ship who worked in Captain's Cook Bar, Ainsley from Jamaica! He was wonderful and his service was what the rest of the ships staff should learn from! Sorry to be harsh but I would have rather stayed home then be on this ship.
Already sent complaint to Norwegian, we call multiple times to check and make sure the itinerary didn't change, they told me it didn't. Once I got on the boat there was a change of ports and the change was to key west and the last place I want to go on vacation is where I live
We found a little gem on Deck 11 in Il Adagio for breakfast. They serve made to order omelets, and waffles. It's quiet and there wasn't much of a line. It was quaint, and not a lot of people went up there to eat. Most people hit the buffet for breakfast.
We will not recommend this cruise our friends and family. I hope that this was an isolated incident and the service we rec'd was from people who were training and did not perform well. Guest services should field their calls better especially if they have a guest who is off to a bad cruise.
The drinks (water) in the room will be charged, so do not open/drink unless you want to pay for it. The water on the ship (free drinking water) tastes bad, so bring your own because you can not get bottled water with the drink package. Definitely get the drink package it is so worth it!
