party cruise for sure

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

the decision to take this cruise was made after finding I had a business meeting in Miami in february and would be a good opportunity to get some friends together - the all inclusive (alcohol also) sounded like the perfect thing - just because that can become a huge expense...

didn't think about it being Superbowl weekend and didn't think about all of the folks who would be on this strictly for the unlimited booze..

the food was okay, the staff was the best thing about the whole trip. We left friday and waters were rough and it was rainy and windy on the way to Nassau - so combine unlimited alcohol and a rocking boat, and the results are less than spectacular (there were sick bags everywhere around the ship) - saturday was a nice day in port but then we got news that a storm was approaching and the captain decided we would stay put and not sail to their private island - again it was a tad cold but no worries, we finally left Nassau on Sunday and spent the day rocking our way back to port in Miami - the crew came up with activities and there was a certain feeling of absurdity with some..As in during the Mr Sexy Legs contest, the cruise director, Tyler, chose some contestants which was fine and then chose 3 judges (women from the audience) - it was more like a porn club than a stupid, fun contest - at one point he asked one of the female judges (the only one who was african american,) if she preferred dark meat or white meat...really Tyler? slick move - the journey back was uneventful..we docked in Miami on monday morning to a lovely day - won't do that cruise again - but it's good for a weekend of partying....

Dated older ship - cramped stateroom

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

Ship (Norwegian Sky) in need of attention - evidence of aging in many areas including rust, worn fabrics, maintenance issues, etc.  Our balcony stateroom was very cramped (in comparison with other cruise lines).  I am also having issues with Norwegian's billing for our cruise, in that I am being charged for items not purchased.  This issue will be resolved shortly, hopefully.  All in all, a somewhat disappointing vacation.

Tired ship with many challenges

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

I have always enjoyed Norwegian.  This was the worst cruise I have been on with them.  It started with the onboarding process.  Most cruise lines have found ways to make the process faster and less painful.  Norwegian has gone to a model of giving out tickets when you enter the waiting room and then calling out those groups.  The challenge was no one was there to let us know this was the process and there was also no one there to give us a ticket.  We were one of the first onboard but they had not set up this process in the room yet.  So when people started getting on the ship we were told we needed a ticket and were forced to wait an additional 45 minutes.  Not the way to start.

 

Once on board we were able to see our room and the plastic container the mattresses were in were dirty and stained.  Our room attendant was never seen which is really unusual for a cruise ship.  We tried to send in laundry and had to call back twice and the laundry came back a day later than promised.  Not the level of customer service I have learned to expect on a cruise ship.

 

Overall the cruise was fine, the food at the specialty restaurants was good and the food at the regular restaurants was mediocre.  The comedian and the shows were okay as well.  Maybe this is the level you get on the shorter cruises.

 

When we getting ready to get off the ship the line was ridiculously long.  Everyone was sent off the ship quickly and then stood in a line that wound through lines of chairs.  Again, nothing that said we are trying to make this a great experience.  Maybe you keep people on board until lines are shorter.

 

Based upon this cruise I am not sure I will go on Norwegian again

Perfect getaway for a short vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

4 days Bahamas cruise on the NCL Sky is a perfect getaway when time is limited for a vacation. The itinerary was great. Great Stirrup Cay island is just a beautiful jewel! The staff was very accommodating and pleasant.

I would do this cruise again in a heartbeat!

Relaxeddddd

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

Everything was included in the drinks from beer to mudslides.  We thought it would have been only regular beer or draft but NO coors light, bud light lime, champagne, frozen drinks and no lines to ask.  Very impressed.

Sky

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

the Sky was my first cruise and defiantly not my last! The staff is so much fun and makes you feel right at home! There is always something to do from 7am until midnight! The excursions they offer are great! There is something for everyone. It rained one day when we were there and everyone on the ship had so much fun dancing in the rain and hot tubbing! It was great! I highly recommend the Sky!

Very Fun!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date:

It was very fun but the chilly weather put a damper on the outside/pool fun, the food and drink made it up for it, the shows were fun but could have been sectioned off a little more, it was kind of weird to be in an adult themed show right in the open by-passers with kids, and being a non-smoker, the smoke in some areas like the casino was a bit too much, with all of that said I am look forward to my next cruise!

Food was outstanding

the service was second to none

free alcoholic beverages

clean rooms

 

Nothing negative came about from my experience and would recommend it to everyone.

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.

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.

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!
