Wonderful First Cruise Experience

Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

Our cruise was an enjoyable adventure. The unlimited drinks was a plus as my husband and I don't have any small kids and we were on vacation.. The free food was tasty and we splurged and got the specialty dining package which was worth it.. The food in Cagney's and in Le Bistro were very good.  The employees were very helpful and we changed our reservations each day in the dining room and they were very pleasant. We had a room with a balcony which I enjoyed because I like the ocean view.. We took in a show and enjoyed the white hot party.. The ship is very clean and housekeeping is there early every morning cleaning and even wiping down the walls. The only thing we did notice that people left drinks by the elevator and no one took them away the entire trip...

I'll keep this short and to the point. Cruising is not what it used to be. My wife and I took our very first Cruise 25 years ago for out honeymoon. It was fabulous! Since theno we have cruised at least 20 additional times, several on Norwegian. Over the years, the cruising experience has diminished in terms of service and staff friendliness in general.

 

But before I complain, let me first provide some compliments. We were really impressed with our room steward because he made it  point to call my wife, my son, and me by name. He made it personal, like the old days. Second, the assistant Cruise director and entertainment guy (Yahshua, I believe) was personable. Lastly, kudos on the all inclusive. I know it's a trial period but it's a differentiator. However, from a business perspective it must be challenging to be profitable with that model. So I assume cost has to be cut somewhere. 

 

Now to my complaint and biggest disappointment (and no, it's not because I donated $500 to the casino. That was planned!), my wife and I celebrated our 25 anniversary and no one acknowledged it any way. I made it known when I booked the cruise and when I checked. That'said quite disappointing! Obviously, we had other options but we chose Noweigian Cruise Lines to celebrate such a milestone. Lesson learned.

 

My last complaint is about one of the casino workers. I believe her name is Ashcraft  (light skin, shoulder length hair). She was extremely rude - just a bad personality who should not be customer facing without much more customer experience training. But in spite of her bad attitude, I still chose to play at the casino all 4 nights. The guys were really good, especially Vijay.

 

I see that I didn't keep it short but really my complaint is about not receiving any type of acknowledgement of our 25th anniversary, even though you were informed AND we are past guests.

Great get away

Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

An older ship, but the staff is very attentive and polite.  This was our second time on this ship.  While my wife and I had a great time, I would not recommend as a family outing with younger children.  Having alcohol included in the price results in some passengers getting a wee bit tipsy which is not what I want my kids around.  Not an issue for me or my wife, but not appropriate for kids.  The food was generally a little bland.  The specialty restaurant Cagney's was exceptional!  (Not included, but worth it)

relaxing and food was good. The staff was great.  But rooms are very tight and the room had no ac controls and was very cold at most times.  The liquor, beer, and wine were generally of very good quality.

Not so good

Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

The friendliness of the staff carry over my frustration why 

I choose Norwegian.  This is my first time cruise experience

and I can say it's not so good experience... bed is so terrible 

with two twin bed align together to make it like a queen

size bed one side is higher that other and sunk. I know I

booked the trip with free WIFI and an open Bar for my free

upgrade but to my frustration no free WIFI for me and no 

open bar. The entertainment sucks!

Fantastic Quick/Cheap Getaway

Verified Review

Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

Norwegian Sky is ready for you to party! All inclusive (food AND alcoholic drinks). Noticed tons of bachelor/bachelorette parties on board so might not be the best "family vacation" choice. Nonetheless.. Super friendly staff all around. Plenty to do on the boat (pools, jacuzzi's, nightclubs, comedy club, jewelry stores, fitness center, spa, casino) but also lot's of great excursion choices (I strongly recommend doing the Mini Boat Excursion at Nassau which you personally drive, to a private island to snorkel and tour a few celebrity's million dollar homes). Last minute trip for my boyfriend & I, booked in less than 10 minutes online. My first cruise and i'll defiantly be back! Wink

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!
