NCL 4 Night Bahamas Cruise

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This 4- night Miami RT cruise to the Bahamas had good itinerary with 3 stops (Freeport, Nassau, and Great Stirup Cay). In Freeport and Nassau we hired a taxi driver to show us the major historical and tourist sights so my travel photographer husband could get photos for his website. Freeport appears more run down, although efforts are being made to  improve it. Nassau is the lively port, especially when you include the Atlantis Resort in the mix. Many tourists take part in active water adventures of which there are many. Great Stirrup Cay was a relaxing day to snorkel, walk and enjoy the beach.

 

All ages were on board the ship, although I think many were enticed by the drinks included. The ship is older in style but has been well maintained. Our balcony room was smaller than on other ships, but we weren't in the room for extended periods, so it worked out okay. There's plenty of storage for people who tend to over pack.

 

Food on board was served hot and there were always many selections. We enjoyed the 2 complimentary main restaurants plus one night we ate at Cagney;s Steakhouse which now has an a-la-cart menu. For breakfast we ate at the buffet as well as the omelette/waffle station next door.

 

We didn't take part in ship activities / entertainment so I can't comment on that.

 

Overall, a good short cruise right after Thanksgiving.

Generally speaking, this was a great cruise ( first one ).

Food, entertainment, activities were all great!

However, photographers on board were a little pushy; everywhere you went, there they were ! no issues with them taking pictures, but is it necessary to charge an exorbitant price for these pictures ? I mean, $10 U.S. for a 5 x 7 and $20 U.S. for a 8 x 10 is a little pricey for me, and, I suspect, for most passengers.

Also, I found it odd that you could get top-shelf liquor and, yet, you had to pay $5.50 U.S. for a 1L bottle of water; I suggest that Norwegian re-think this silly policy.

My 1st Cruise

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was my first cruise!  I absolutely enjoyed the cruise and will be taking another one.  My favorite part was the beautiful weather and being on the ocean.  It was very relaxing not to have to worry about rental cars, what restaurant to eat at, or where to go.  My friends had described the cruises they has been on in detail and my expectations were high.  The Sky clearly had some miles on it and wasn't nearly as nice as I expected  The activities were ok, but not great.  The staff was very nice and the food was fine.  It felt like a "booze cruise", but that's not bad if that is the type of cruise you are looking for.  Everybody seemed to have a good time including myself.  It was an excellent value.

Sick at sea Sunday

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Just vacationing,  we went to a port on Sunday and had to be chartered on a smaller boat in which on the trip back we had problems for over 2  hours and could not get back on cruise ship and people were getting sick in which later when I wanted to enjoy the last night I got a migraine and nauseous which ruined our cruise. Nobody apologized or gave us any credits or anything

They changed the port stops d/t the hurricane last month. We spent two days at sea and had two stops instead of three. The first stop was in Key West,  and the cruise left from Miami. if I wanted to vacation in Florida  I would not have payed for a cruise.

5 day all-inclusive cruise for $350 balcony room was a great price for a quick trip.  Ship was very clean, great service and we had nice weather.  Would recommend.

Definitely could use some work

The cruise as a whole was good, food was ok but the menu could have had more variety . The bathrooms never had toilet paper stocked, no matter what time of day or night if you went to one of the public restrooms it was almost guaranteed to be out of toilet paper and paper towels. The all inclusive drinks were very weak, I'm pretty sure the alcohol was watered down. The entertainment was good but definitely could have used some more energy and participation. It was a good experience but definitely could have been better.

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!
