Ant of soft drink smelled liked chemical regent.

Food quality was average.

I got stabbed by insects like house ticks, itchy rash appeared in our state room.

getting on and off the boat was easier than i thought it would be.Their help were so friendly and always had a hello  and how are you.T he food in the sit down restaurants was always good and they had  a great selection on their menu.The entertainment was really good and some of their game shows left me in stitches. I would highly recommend this ship and their crew to anyone and hope to do it again next year.

Perfect if Only Thing You Care About is Getting Drunk

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I've been on about 10 cruises and this was by far my worst cruising experience all around. As everyone does when they board an all inclusive cruise, I went straight to the bar to order my first drink. I don't do typical frozen drinks, so I ordered a mojito, one of my favorite drink choices on other cruises. No joke, the mojito was ready in less than 30 seconds and was a puke green color with only a half rotten mint leaf put on top as a garnish. I took one sip and gave the drink back for a beer. We came to realize that popular mixed drinks like mojitos were pre-made and not the way to go. The second star is for the fact that they had a decent selection of liquor available under the all inclusive package, so I mostly ordered straight liquor with ice to avoid anymore pre-mixed drink nightmares. The quality of the service was shockingly unprofessional. Less a select few crew members that were polite and professional, almost every encounter with a crew member made me want to spontaneously combust with anger at how we were being treated. Dealing with intoxicated cruisers all day long must be tiring for the crew, but that doesn't excuse treating everyone as if they are beligerant drunks, especially when you are dead sober and just trying to have a nice relaxing time. We were constantly made to feel as if we were inconveniences for asking simple questions or requests. The quality of the food at the buffets was standard, and the staff working the buffets were actually the most helpful on the whole ship. The quality of the food in the main dining rooms was below average and the dining service was extremely slow and underwhelming compared to other cruise lines like Carnival and Royal Caribbean. My girlfriend was made to feel like a nuisance because of her tree nut allergy, and then was wrongly told she couldn't have meals that she ordered because of a "gluten" allergy that she didn't have. The ship is obviously an older ship, with dated amenities and decor. I suppose updating the ship after changing to all inclusive is probably not in the cards given the amount of damage that the demographic on the cruise does. As one might expect with an affordable all inclusive cruise, the demographic was very young compared to other cruises I've been on, with a lot of bachelor and bachelorette parties. Overall, I was unpleasantly surprised by my underwhelming experience on this Norwegian cruise, as I had heard and thought Norwegian was supposed to be a good cruise line. Thus, I'd only recommend this cruise if you're young and only really care about partying. But once you reach the point where you'd rather pay a little extra for better quality and service, I wholeheartedly advise not going on this cruise. I personally will never go on this cruise again and it will take a whole lot of convincing to get me to go on another Norwegian cruise.

We really can't say enough positives about our time on Norwegian Sky.  The staff was terrific and full of smiles which always makes a trip pleasant.  The food was very good as were the events in Dazzles each night.  The all-inclusive part really made it more enjoyable as well.  Wondering what your bar tab is going to be at the end of the trip is stressful.  That also allowed us to enjoy spa services and purchase items to bring home.  This was our first cruise in 22 years but we will be going on another one soon.

We stayed in the owner's suite, and it was beautiful, all the staff on board the ship were friendly and knowledgeable.  The food was amazing.   From checking in at the port to our stateroom we never had a bad experience.

Great Stirrup Key was an unexpected surprise...Norwegian has developed this island similar to a resort.  The all inclusive drinks were a real bonus and helped create a fun atmosphere on board.  

While it wasn't a concern to us don't expect guests dining the restaurants to be dressed up - lots of shorts and tee shirts.

for a smaller boat this was a great time. The food was great and the drinks were not bottom shelf. Surprisingly they mixed them very strong and you could get pretty much any drink you'd like.

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.
