Food was poor even at the specialty restaurants. Way too crowded. The 2 pools were packed like sardines in a can. I cannot imagine having a family with kids in their "family pool". Entertainment was good. Staff was good. They don't stay in port very long. We left at 6 and Royal carribean left at 11. Wouldn't do it again

Loved the food!  The people and the ship!  The only negative thing is that i purchased some duty free liquor from the ship and they didn't put it in a duty free bag so when I arrived at the airport they confiscated all my bottles.  Bottles that I could not purchase in the states.  I'm very upset about that . I called the cruise line and am currently on hold and have been for over 48 minutes.

My boyfriend and I loved this cruise! The food and drinks were diverse but excellently prepared. My favorite was the extra sushi bar, which was very good and not at all expensive. The staterooms were extremely clean and well kept; our steward was efficient and friendly. Getting on and off the ship was easy and the staff was helpful with any questions we had. Extra activities on the boat such as Trivia or Battle of the Sexes were fun and engaging. The activity hosts were always energetic, helpful, and absolutely hysterical! We couldn't stop laughing! We also attended some of the seminars on shopping, diamonds, and watches. They contained helpful information for us when we went shopping in Nassau. The guest comedian, Russ Rivas, engaged with the audience very well and had everyone on the edge of their seats.

 

Only thing I didn't like about this cruise was during the late evening parties, little kids (16 and under) were allowed on the top deck to dance among the very drunk adults. It was really awkward for us to be drinking and dancing next to 8 year-olds so my boyfriend and I ended up leaving all the parties early to go do something else. It would be very hard to keep the kids out of the party, as it is an open deck, but still. Very awkward.

This is a quick and inexpensive getaway. The food was the best I've had in all the ships I have been on and they did not skimp on the alcoholic beverages even considering it was an "all-inclusive" package. The Sky is visibly dated but the crew were terrific, as expected. The balcony cabin I had was smaller than some inside and outside staterooms on other ships I have been on. The sound on the tv in my cabin was very distorted, even at low level volume. My internet only worked half of the time but I was compensated because I was told that there was a known issue on my deck. I don't have a sensitive bum, nor am I generally picky, but 1-ply toilet paper isn't going to cut it. The reviews I have see about Nassau were 50/50,but I really enjoyed the sea-land tour I took of the city and Atlantis. Overall I was satisfied, but I wouldn't take the same trip again aboard the Norwegian Sky.

I wanted to cruise so I would not have to worry about cooking, cleaning, etc.  I do wish the food was better, but it wasn't "bad."  Crew members sitting in the back during bingo were rather loud, making it difficult to hear the person running bingo.

The Cruise and Open Bar were great. Shows were Tremendous. Staff Exceedingly Friendly. Overall we Loved the Cruise and would do it again in a heart beat.

 

Did not like the Television layout. To many dead channels mixed in working channels. Would be better to put in a better system and have ability to look at room charges, book tickets, etc.

It was a great cruise.  My favorite part were the Showcase broadway numbers.  Also, the entertainment was great!  I laid out by the pool most of the time.

Good Trip

Verified Review

Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

Overall it was a good cruise - the over tone was Latin

The staff were generally friendly and ready to answer questions/assist

DJ Viper was good, but should play music for different cultures including Caribbean - reggae, calypso (Trinidad, Barbados etc)

The gift shop items on sale has a thrift shop appearance, many items - jewelry and evening bags were broken, seams coming apart etc

The Crossings and Palace complimentary restaurants carried the same menu

Breakfast same everyday

Shows were good

Youth program - not interesting for teens

I needed to rest and hoped that I could have the option of watching movies in my room (On Demand Program selection) and even the Olympics - too many channels showing the ship

I would recommend it though

Favorite part is the all inclusive drinks and food. Keep everything the same especially staff support. 100% recommendation.  The port stops were all different offering a unique feel Freeport felt smaller but still had residents and tourist Nassau was very busy hustle and bustle and the final island Great Stirrup Cay was the best cleanest beach and no residents

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!
