February 2016 - 4 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Sky
A decent cruise for the money
I've cruised multiple times but this was my first cruise on Norwegian Cruise Lines. Overall, the experience was positive. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The public areas were nice and appeared to be well maintained. The food and service in the main dining halls was good and food temperature was overall good. The food temperatures on the buffet restaurants on the 11th deck were very inconsistent especially for breakfast. On three different days, scrambled eggs were runny and the temperatures (like the breakfast meats and potatoes) were cold to barely warm. I'd definitely recommend a dining hall for meals ( or the custom omelet area for breakfast). The bars were well staffed and the lines were reasonable. If you go for dinner at a dining hall and it's busy, they will ask if you would share a table. You may want to consider waiting for a table rather than being seated with other couples. One night we dined with two other couples at a large table. Halfway through the main course, one of the couples had a drunken make-out session at the table and left when they realized they were making a scene...awkward.
