Review of Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: May 15, 2015

Thought there would be more options available for kids due to affiliation with Nickelodeon but was under whelmed with this portion.Vibe was very "Spring Breaky".  Some of the recreational amenities available on pool deck were broken. Service was not consistent. It was either exceptional or poor.

Best 3 days of relaxation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: May 14, 2015

I had up until now only sailed on the KISS KRUISE so I didn't really know what to expect on a "regular" cruise. To my complete surprise it was the best. most relaxing 3 days I've spent in a long, long time. The ship is spotless. There was nothing that was out of place or needing repair! The NCL staff were always helpful and never did I ask a question that they didn't have the answer to. None of this "let me ask" BS. We went to Nassau first which was ok but there must be better places to go. The next day we were at the Great Styrup Cay and it was the best part of the cruise (except for the dinning onboard) by far! The island has really been cleaned up and expanded quite nicely. There are new Cabana's (small) that are the best kept secret on the island. You have a covered location to relax in and get out of the sun, and the sun does get hot fast, but the ceiling fan makes it all melt away. Add the wait service and it really doesn't get any better. The onboard dinning was 5 star in the main dinning rooms and the ship also had a buffet that was outstanding as well. The menu changes daily with expert prepared meals that do not disappoint. Pop for the balcony cabins. At the end of the day when you want a few moments away from all that is going on, sitting on your private balcony just watching the sea, or stars can't be beat! Norwegian is the best cruise line to sail in my opinion and the Sky is a fine ship!

Great getaway

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: May 11, 2015

This was my first cruise experience and it was a girlfriends' getaway. I was never sold on cruising but decided to give it a try. From the moment we stepped on board, we were treated with extreme courtesy and the attitude of making our cruise as pleasurable as it could be.

 

The ports were set up in such a way as to make our trip as enjoyable as could be. While Freeport was a disappointment the other ports increasingly thrilled us. In Nassau we met Marco of Marco Polo Tours who for a nominal fee gave us a phenomenal tour of the island. Highly recommend him to anyone. But Great Stirrup Cay was the highlight of the trip. We were only there with our own shipmates. While the main beach was fun we wouldn't have had a complete day without making the tram ride out to the lagoon. What a peaceful, serene setting in which few took advantage.

I have read complaints about the staff but we didn't find one single person to have objection to. As can be seen in other reviews, there are LOTS of language barriers but nevertheless, it was easy to see they wanted to please you even if they failed to understand. Everyone was attentive and made it seem like you were their primary concern.

The comedy act, Andrew Kennedy, was a great asset but I must admit, the Vegas Show made the trip. The singers and dancers are bar none the best of the best.

Yes the ship is showing a little age but unless you're a complete snob who belongs on some luxury cruise rather than this one, there wasn't anything outstandingly complaint-worthy.

The only downsides I could see was my friend and I are settled and in middle age. Lots of the activities were geared towards the party crowd who were in abundance but we enjoyed sitting back and watching them, reminiscing about our days at their ages. The other is the food was mediocre but never bad.

I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone unless you're expecting to be pampered and have a Kardashian attitude. Norwegian really has this cruise thing down!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: May 11, 2015

La atencion en uno de los comedores muy demorada,cuando reserve la cabina interior pense que era igual que la de todos los otros matrimonios que fuimos que tenian espacio para un pequeño sofa yo padezco de mucho desvelo y aquella cabina era mas peueña al extremo que no tenia sofa era en el 9 piso interior #9337 y pagamos lo mismo que los otros acompañantes a pesar de gustarme tanto esa linea de crucero no tenemos suerte mi esposo y yo siempre viajamos con otros matrimonios y nos toca la peor cabina creo que Deben poner camas queen y no king porque mi esposo y yo no podiamos movernos a la vez por lo incomoda que era por tan poco espacio espero que tengamos mas suerte la proxima vez igual que habia un grupo grande de juventud borrachos todo el tiempo que una noche nos trasladaron a otro comedor por el gran escandalo que tenian creo que es un gran negocio la venta de bebidas pero deberian tener un poco mas de control con respecto a esa situacion estas observaciones las hago a modo en beneficio de la compañia ya que es agradable y sentimos en el piso 11 que tanto disfrutamos en Agosto pasado de la musica latina ya alli no hay nada estamos en el Caribe y viajamos Latinos no solo Americanos yo siento no poder escribir es ingles pero creo tengan personal que pueda traducir mis comentarios y espero tener mas suerte la proxima vez

relaxing vacation to fun vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: May 08, 2015

I have been on this cruise twice before. Norwegian never ceases to please me. From the food to the entertainment. There is always something to do if you want to. On this vacation I didn't want to do anything but it's hard to ignore all the fun so I didn't relax as much as I had planned to. My only complaint is I had too much fun, if that's possible.  And don't forget the people behind the scenes. My room was kept clean and inviting. The ship is also kept clean.  All the people I came into contact with were very nice. If you had any questions at all they are eager to help. I can't say enough good things about Norwegian Sky. I am not good at expressing myself to get my point across but if you don't have fun it's not their fault.    Want a fun filled 3 day vacation? Take this cruise!

Bahamas Cruise 2015

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: May 08, 2015

Well, I enjoyed the cruise in general but the food was sub-par & the desserts were beautiful but pretty much tasteless. Our steward was extremely attentive & there was a nice variety as far as shows & entertainment.

Bahama Cruise, Norwegian Sky

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: May 04, 2015

LoveThis cruise exceeded expectations, with all personnel courteous and helpful. Our only suggestion is to include soft drinks (soda) with the beverage package considering the high cost. It doesn't make sense to purchase a liquor package only to pay extra for a bottle of water. Daily poolside barbecues would also be a hit. We cruised during Cinco De Mayo, but the only recognition was a few Mexican dishes on the menus.

Disappointiong

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: May 01, 2015

We have been on several with other cruise lines, but this was by far the worse. It was dirty, with vomit on the in our stateroom hallway, which was there most of the day. The service was very very slow with little to choose from. It was like spring break with many drunk boys and girls diving in the pools and trying to hook up. Our itinerary was changed from first day Bahamas and second day their private island, to the reverse. We had a mandatory day at sea because we were told that it was unsafe to go to the island but there were no activities planned for that day There were so many people that you could not get to the pool or hot tubs or hardly find a place to sit. Fights almost broke out at the buffet because there was no seating. It was a dirty bad experience and we would like our money back. Do not take Norwegian

Good value for a quick weekend getaway

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Sky | Sail Date: May 01, 2015

TheNorwegian Sky , despite it's age is still a well maintained, clean and very comfortable ship. What's even better than the ship was the crew; friendly, engaging, and always with a smile on their faces.  The speciality restaurants were well worth the extra money. The food is a cut above what's served in the main dining rooms and you can enjoy it while having a conversation; something that can't be done in the large dining rooms. The one downside to the cruise, which is the reason I only give it 3 stars, is the number of people they try to cram onto to the ship. Given that the average age of the guest was around 28, they were all crowded around the pool areas.
