Cannot beat this trip for the $$!!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Great trip, beautiful beaches.  Private island is not to be missed.  Also on the Nassau stop we opted to not go Atlantis and we went to the small island off the coast ...started with the letter "B" can't remember it now!  But it quiet and beautiful, nice lounge chairs with umbrellas and a nice boat ride to the island.  We always found something good to Eat on the ship at night at the sit down restaurants as well as for lunch and breakfast at the buffet.  The boat is definitely older, smaller...not a lot of bells and whistles but you certainly cannot beat what you get for the price.  Room was VERY tight with an interior room with a king bed...but who cares!!!  If you want a luxurious room and a luxurious boat this is not for you!  But if you want a great quick trip and aren't too concerned about the finishes this is a great option.  All inclusive was great...great drinks.  High end liquor always available and freely poured.  Keep in mind with the all inclusive there will b drunks!!!  The pool is small and the hot tubs are smaller so if you plan to stay on the ship during the day "the drunks" are pretty unavoidable!  However it makes for super great people watching!!!  Iif you get off everyday like we did...it's a great trip.

Not worth the money.

Spent extra on the balcony room, yet treated like we hadn't paid anything to get on the boat. Boat left the doc late, cancelling several activities, but no apology at all. All inclusive not worth it.

Best Experience/Worth Every Penny!!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I've been on at least 8 other cruises (one specific cruise line) and I have to admit, I'll probably never use anything BUT Norwegian Cruise Lines!!  The Norwegian Sky was extremely clean and adult friendly.  We did the all-inclusive package and will be booking another cruise in the very near future. 

Staff members were extremely friendly and welcoming.  While we did not do the food/dinner package (or whatever it is called), we still had delicious food.  Entertainment was great as well.  There were more than enough bars and bartenders to accommodate the passengers.  We never had to wait in line for a drink!

Our visit to Great Stirrup Cay was phenomenal!!  Quite honestly, I would have loved to have stayed there for the two days rather than venturing to the other port. Wink  The private island was exceptionally clean.  Multiple bars were close to the beach so we never really had to wait in line for a beverage.

Overall, we had an remarkable time and would highly recommend this cruise to everyone.  If you book, I promise you will not be disappointed!  It's well worth every penny!

I've cruised about ten times so far and really like Norwegian.  My sister chose this itinerary because every day was in port, and they don't care for the "days at sea".  A big plus was the all-inclusive bar.  We never waited for a drink, there were plenty of staff if you went to the bar (it was harder to catch a waiter poolside, but the bar was close enough that it wasn't an issue).  The food was good (not great) in the main dining rooms. I wasn't sure what I would think about the smaller ship (capacity was about 2000, compared to Getaway which is closer to 4,000) and the ship is older.  No soaring atriums, not a lot of bells and whistles, but for the price and the itinerary, it was certainly acceptable.  I had a spa package and my tech (Venus) was very good, however, the treatment room was extremely noisy and that took away from the experience.  Then at the end, the up-sell of products comes, but she was very gracious and didn't push.  I was afraid of an 'open-bar' cruise being a bunch of drunks but it really wasn't too bad.  You get that 'wasted away' element on any cruise.  At times, it felt like a biker bar on water, but most times, it really was a nice cruise.  The staff couldn't be nicer.  Freeport is an awful stop.  It needs to be removed from all itineraries as it's just a wasted day.  I'm happy to hear that Great Stirrup Cay is getting a full makeover as it's needed.  Nassau is Nassau.  We did a day trip to Breezes which wasn't worth the money when the food and the open bar back on ship are better.  Breezes' pools were dirty and the food was terrible.  Their beach was nice and we did kayak, however, no stand-up paddle boards were offered, even though they are shown in the brochure.  The cab driver there ripped us off - we had read that it was a $15 ride, plus $3 for each additional passenger ($21 total) - he charged us $25 plus the extra $3 per person.  The valet at Breezes told us the correct info and made sure our driver didn't overcharge us on the way back to port.  All in all, Norwegian does what they do best - they offer a great value with a great staff.  They'll always be my go-to cruise line.

I did the 4 nights Bahamas cruise with Norwegian Sky.

It's a fantastic experience.  I've never been on a cruise that offers free drinks which the Sky offers.    

Food in the formal dining need to be fresher and better cooked.   Overall I have had a great experience.

Dale made special decoration for my birthday in state room 8008. He made my wife and me so happy to celebrate my birthday. He is totally awesome. It would be nice if also show some celebration token for anniversary in other form. I highly recommend this affordable cruise because the food is great, choice of beached are absolutely beautiful. Make my wife and I build wonderful memory.

It's the Sky after all!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

"It's the Sky after all" proclaimed a gentleman on the beach that professed to have been on a Norwegian cruise every month from September of 2016 - to the end of January 2017. That statement ended the conversation.  How much did you pay for the cruise? Was all the food lodging and booze tossed in?  4 days for 179 US$.  I guess I had expectations that the staff would know where deck 6A was. 5 of them got it wrong on my first hours aboard the ship.  Asking for a spare pillow took two days to get and 4 requests.  Asking for distilled water for my CPAP machine was met with why didn't you ask for it when you booked? I did.  I guess it's a learning ship or a place for those who are not moving up in the ranks. OK so I've complained about a couple of the bad things. Now the good. It was fun. You are on a very inexpensive cruise. The food was a 4 out of 5 not great but not bad either. The entertainment was good. Philly Joel and his staff keeps you laughing, singing, dancing and generally having fun. Freeport tour around the botanical gardens was wonderful. The beach on the private island was great. The tendering to the shore seemed like it would be awkward at first but it went very well.  Embarking and disembarking was a breeze.  I got home tired, smiling and overall happy with the value from the Sky. No one should complain about the service for the price we paid. Remember  what Roberto said. It's the Sky after all. Do not judge Norwegian by the Sky this is the bottom. If this was the bottom then it was a pretty good vacation.Big Smile

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.

There is a hot tub at the very front of the ship on level 12 that no one seemed to know about. Perfect for a peaceful night with few people.

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.
