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.

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.

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.

Not what we expected

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

We just finished our four night cruise to the Bahamas on the Norwegian Sky. The ship was beautiful and extremely clean!  The staff went above and beyond for us, especially those in the dining room/buffet and our room attendant.  Excellent service.  

We were however very disappointed with the lack of entertainment on the boat. The entertainment that was  There weren't really any shows or productions to enjoy at night. Overall we found it to be quite boring.  We aren't big drinkers and didn't want to spend the money on alcohol, which seemed to be the main focus of much of the entertainment.  There was a casino, but we didn't take part.  We found it was more of a party ship.  

The excursions they offered at each port were great, but very expensive.  It cost us $120 just to enjoy a beach day.  

Bahamas were nice, and the ship was nice but we wouldn't go on this cruise again.

Excellent!

We couldn't have been happier.  Beautiful ship, extreemly helpful crew, no complaints.  The food was fabulous and the ship had plenty of places to be comfortable and get away from it all.  I would highly recommend the Norwegian Sky to anyone.

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.

Absolutely Fabulous

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Feb 06, 2015

My husband and I had a wonderful experience.  Sin, the cruise director, did an amazing job making our trip fun and memorable.  He was always "ON".  We also enjoyed Russ, the comic, onboard.  He had us doubled over in laughter.  As well, the games were a total riot.

As you know nothing is ever perfect, though.  We thought the buffet food was excellent, but we were disappointed with the dining room's meal choices.  One more point,  I did not like the music choices played inside the buffet dining area.  Typically, it would be loud, rap music even during breakfast.  I enjoy rap, but I feel that it is more appropriately played in the bar areas not in the buffet dining area.

Overall, we have only shared how much we enjoyed ourselves and that we can not wait for our next opportunity to cruise with NCL.

Highly recommended for anyone who will stop at Miami

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Feb 06, 2015

The Miami to Bahamas round trip is fantastic, especially the private island. It's really cool to stay on a caribbean island in the middle of nowhere. The blue sky and the blue ocean, the white sand and green trees, everything is perfect. Besides, there are no mobile signals at all, which means no one will bother you.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Feb 06, 2015

This is the worst of my cruise experience

even though this is my first time of sailing with Norwegian Cruise Line.

The crew are good , our room attendant was very friendly and polite

The food was substandard, not too rich

Interior staterooms very small - def need to upgrade if you're sailing on this ship

Everything is on Decks 6 and 11 so try to get a stateroom between those!
