The cruise was fantastic! The food and staff were great and the room/ship was kept very clean. The only thing that could have been better were the night entertainment shows, but even those were entertaining at least. I would recommend this to anyone- it was beautiful, relaxing, and so much fun!

Typical cruise (which is a good thing!)

My wife and I sailed with the Norwegian Sky from Feb 24-27th and had a great time.  This was our forth cruise and I'd say this was pretty consistent with previous cruises.  We used it as an extended weekend getaway, enjoyed the fact that drinks were included, and had an overall great time.  As others have commented, even though the drinks are free, the wait staff still work very hard and the drinks are made strong.  It was extremely nice having everything included.  The only reason I'm docking a star is because the variety of food I think could have been better, and the entertainment was a bit lacking.  Not bad - but not top notch either.  By entertainment, I don't mean the specific performers.  They were good.  It would have been nice to have a bit more variety.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Took this short cruise with 4 other couple friends. We had about as much fun as we could fit into 3 nights! We were able to board the ship at 10:30am and had a drink in our hands a few minutes later and were eating lunch on the deck.  The weather was beautiful, our room was comfortable, the shows were fun, the ship was clean and tidy, the wait staff was awesome!  Nassau is..... well, it's Nassau, not the ships fault for that.  The private island was unbelievable!  Tropical and gorgeous! And the food and drinks were again, abundant!  This is probably the only cruise that I didn't enjoy the sit down dinners like I usually do. We were always first in line and the food came out very slowly and I would have to say subpar.  Not like I usually get on cruises.  Not sure why though.  But, it was at best, OK.  The last night we skipped the sit down because there was too many things we wanted to do.  The entertainment by Benjamin was a riot in the Atrium bar!  And Stefan our bar server was adorable!  My best advice is: Don't bring your kids on a cruise with free alcohol because it is very apparent that everyone is boozing it up pretty good.  Very few children on the boat. If you are traveling with kids, which I have, you may want to choose a cruise that is better suited for kid fun.  No extra cost on the drink unless you wanted something that wasn't part of the inclusive list, but frankly it was very extensive and had many choices for every taste.  The only reason for a 4 star was the dining room experience for dinner.  Breakfast dining room was awesome.  Love

"Ok for my first cruise"

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Being this was my first cruise I did not know what to expect.  All I had to go on was my wife's prior experiences.  Overall, I had a good time.  We were told we would receive a $50 on-board credit for early booking . . . that did not happen. The ALL inclusive deal was probably a good idea with the drinks being included.  You get your money's worth with this deal.  The food . . . the sit down/formal meals left us with much to be desired.  Entree choices, quality, was expecting so much better.  The buffets were good, lots of choices, different each day.  The private island excursion was very nice.

We loved the casual atmosphere, casual dining.  Food was excellent!  Always so many choices.  Staff was wonderful and very attentive.  Aaron and Dutta, our two waiters at the Palace dining were so attentive and friendly.  Kudos to them.

Cannot beat this trip for the $$!!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Great trip, beautiful beaches.  Private island is not to be missed.  Also on the Nassau stop we opted to not go Atlantis and we went to the small island off the coast ...started with the letter "B" can't remember it now!  But it quiet and beautiful, nice lounge chairs with umbrellas and a nice boat ride to the island.  We always found something good to Eat on the ship at night at the sit down restaurants as well as for lunch and breakfast at the buffet.  The boat is definitely older, smaller...not a lot of bells and whistles but you certainly cannot beat what you get for the price.  Room was VERY tight with an interior room with a king bed...but who cares!!!  If you want a luxurious room and a luxurious boat this is not for you!  But if you want a great quick trip and aren't too concerned about the finishes this is a great option.  All inclusive was great...great drinks.  High end liquor always available and freely poured.  Keep in mind with the all inclusive there will b drunks!!!  The pool is small and the hot tubs are smaller so if you plan to stay on the ship during the day "the drunks" are pretty unavoidable!  However it makes for super great people watching!!!  Iif you get off everyday like we did...it's a great trip.

Great Vacation

My husband and I had never been on a cruise before. We decided to look for a vacation to somewhere warm in February. We opted for the 4 night Bahamas cruise to try it out. We had the best vacation that we have had in a very long time. The food was great, the drinks were perfect and the staff and entertainment was great. We figured with the drinks being included that they would be weak or watered down, NOPE, they were perfect. I would recommend this cruise to anyone. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for such an amazing vacation Norwegian. We will cruise with you again.

Best Experience/Worth Every Penny!!

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I've been on at least 8 other cruises (one specific cruise line) and I have to admit, I'll probably never use anything BUT Norwegian Cruise Lines!!  The Norwegian Sky was extremely clean and adult friendly.  We did the all-inclusive package and will be booking another cruise in the very near future. 

Staff members were extremely friendly and welcoming.  While we did not do the food/dinner package (or whatever it is called), we still had delicious food.  Entertainment was great as well.  There were more than enough bars and bartenders to accommodate the passengers.  We never had to wait in line for a drink!

Our visit to Great Stirrup Cay was phenomenal!!  Quite honestly, I would have loved to have stayed there for the two days rather than venturing to the other port. Wink  The private island was exceptionally clean.  Multiple bars were close to the beach so we never really had to wait in line for a beverage.

Overall, we had an remarkable time and would highly recommend this cruise to everyone.  If you book, I promise you will not be disappointed!  It's well worth every penny!

Not worth the money.

Spent extra on the balcony room, yet treated like we hadn't paid anything to get on the boat. Boat left the doc late, cancelling several activities, but no apology at all. All inclusive not worth it.

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.

There is a hot tub at the very front of the ship on level 12 that no one seemed to know about. Perfect for a peaceful night with few people.

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.
