very good for first time crusiers

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Mar 20, 2015

I think you can do much better with your buffet diner rooms where very good service good, clean rooms, seems like there was no change in the food part of the buffet all the personal on board are good with your customers answer any question and if they didn't know they would find it out for you. this was my first time with this cruise line I would take another cruise with your cruise line again but on a different ship this was my 7th. cruise most of my cruise where with Royal Caribbean

First cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Mar 20, 2015

Great cruise lots of fun.. Music playing everywhere. The drink card was worth it for us. Buffet breakfast great. I suggest for dinner going to one of the two dining rooms, the food there was great and not buffet style. We went to dinner every night around 9:30. Great first experience.

Bahamas Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2015

Cruise was a nice break, met expectations.  Helpful staff and the shore excursions were very nice.  State rooms were a little smaller than our only other previous cruise but it had balcony that was very nice. Not a much entertainment offered on this cruise, but that was OK as it was fairly short in duration.

Best Birthday Celebration Ever!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Feb 27, 2015

My first cruise turned out to be one of the best vacations ever.  The staff, the food, the drinks were fantastic!! Every bit of the ship was so clean. Everyone so friendly and wanted to please the guests. The Hot White Party at the pool was so much fun - excellent music, line dancing, great drinks!  We had a blast!! Be sure to go to Cagney's Steakhouse for dinner it was excellent!!  I will definitely sail with Norwegian again!!Big Smile

good but not great

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Feb 23, 2015

The crew could be more attentive and friendly.  It took over an hour to get a soda at the pool.  When I asked for the soda I had to ask 3 different servers and none brought it.  I as to speak to their superior and it took forever.  The person I complained to seemed to care less.

It was ok

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Feb 23, 2015

I thought for the most part the Staff was pleasant and the ship very clean. Food was ok.  My bed was like a rock so now my back is paying for it.  I called 2x for a room upgrade and was told they were at full capacity. More likely to try a different cruise next time.

3 Night Bahamas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Feb 20, 2015

What an enjoyable vacation.  Just LOVED the Sky.  The crew members were exceptional.  The officers top notch.  Now this is how to cruise!  Went on a Celebrity cruise and that was not a relaxing vacation.  It has far to many shopping venues on the ship making it like a mall.  I could stay home and go to the mall.  Celebrity's cafe also has a scattered layout.  You had to go from station to station to get food and then your eggs were cold by the time you got toast.  On the Sky as with all NCL ships we have cruised the layout flows.  Also the Sky has many public places to sit by windows and 'view' the ocean.  On Celebrity there were very few options to just sit quietly and watch the time slip by.  We had done a back to back on the Sky and they KNOW how to get the 'in transent' passengers off and on the ship in 30 minutes.  No other cruise line has done that  EVER.  One time we had to wait 4 hours and reboard with new embarkation passengers!

Quick getaway.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Feb 13, 2015

I have cruised several times before.  My wife had not.  Found this quick getaway over Valentines Day to allow her to sample.  Coming back from our shore excursion she thanked me for booking it and was looking forward to going again.  The Norwegian Sky is a little bit dated but the amenities were good for a shorter length cruise.   The staff were great and very helpful.  The food was good and plentiful on the 'Freestyle' buffets.  We did not try any of the higher end specialty restaurants.

Good deal for the Money

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Feb 09, 2015

It was OK for the money. Would be a good first cruise for someone. Food was OK, Buffet only, which closed at 11pm. Could not get a drink or food after 11 except for room service, which had a service charge after 12am. The 2 restaurants were UP charges. Rooms & ship were clean. Staff was friendly. But again for a quick somewhat cheap getaway it's a descent value.
