Enjoyable Half and half

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Jul 28, 2014

The places were beautiful, we enjoyed the excursions very much, dinners at the Crossing restaurant were very enjoyable but not a big selection.

The ship itself is not that great as others we'd been. The Balcony Cabin is smaller than others. No bathrobes. The lamps in the bed were broken/cracked. Behind the curtains has not been vacuum for a long time. They did not replace the bottles of water in 2 days. I sent something to be pressed and it took 2 days and my request to take them back. The hostess at the restaurant made jokes about our last name. I'm a business person and I train my personnel in "do not ever make jokes with guest's last names". its really not professional.

If Norwegian is the only one when I can go on vacation, I'll take it; BUT, If I can choose, then I will get another cruise line.

Our cruise was a bit more than expected according to other reviews. Yet my husband and I have talked about our experience and we are planning to cruise with Norwegian again, this time with our grands. 

The excursions were great at all 3 ports. I especially enjoyed the Great Stirrup Cays. Quiet, yet a lot of entertainment. The Wave Runner excursion was on the money! The food was tasty, maybe step it up a notch with some sea food. Other than that my birthday week was AWESOME.....

wonderful cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Jul 28, 2014

SKY is a new,clean and wonderful cruise. Nice buffet and dinner food. Kind,polite,happy and helpful service people.The Indian guy gave us many suggestions to help us choose cool excursions. Everyday when we came back room, we could see different towel-folded animals on the bed!What a warm greeting! And we love the showtime starting at 9:30 every night! 

If there were more activities for the teenagers, that would be perfect!

We really enjoy the four-day Caribbean trip!We definitely will choose the Norwegian cruise again.

We recommend the oceanview room instead of the interior room!That worth much more!

Great ship with a good itinerary for the Bahamas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: Oct 20, 2014

This was our second experience with NCL with the first one being way below our past experiences on other cruise lines.  I am happy to say that this cruise definitely made a positive impression on us.  The Sky is a smaller ship which is nice in that you don't do as much walking as you do on the bigger ones- which was great as we took my 83 year old mother-in-law,  The check in process was smooth and they had plenty of folks out there managing the crowd.  We had a balcony cabin which was small, but sufficed - small ship-small rooms.  The staff and crew were extremely personable.  They always spoke when you met in the hall - or even going to your dinner table - other waiters spoke to you.  We ate dinner in the Crossings dining room and the food was excellent.  Service was prompt and efficient.  We ate breakfast and lunch at the buffet which was generally crowded but it moved quickly. The biggest negative in the Garden Café were their sensored water and ice dispensers.  They were very hard to get to work and they usually had a staff member standing by to assist you.  The ice machine outside was the traditional type of machine and once we found it, kept getting our ice out there.  It was worth the extra steps to avoid the lines and frustration.  They had several other options for breakfast and lunch but we did not try them.  The entertainment was good.  Their Las Vegas review on the last night was excellent.  They had a staff talent show which was just OK.  It might have been better had we been in different seats, but we were under the balcony and it was so loud that is was almost unbearable.  Their entertainment was held in the Stardust Theater which is big and should accommodate everyone.  Unfortunately, they have "barrel-type" chairs as part of the furniture and they had them too close together which cause a lot of seats to remain vacant because no one to get to them.   We've been to the Bahamas several times, so Nassau and Freeport weren't real exciting for us.  If you've never been, they're nice ports to do some sightseeing and shopping.  Their private island was nice and had plenty of chairs spread out along many coves on the beach.  Unfortunately we were there on a rainy/overcast day so we weren't able to enjoy it like we would have like to.  All in all, a nice quick getaway.

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!
