Norwegian Sky

May 2014 - Norwegian Sky to Caribbean - Bahamas

Get a new DJ.

The ship was clean and in good condition for an older ship, however the layout is poor. The room was extremely small, even for an inside cabin, and the room layout meant that you were constantly in each others way. The rear deck and bar area was nice with ample shade, however the bar closed early. This forced you into the center pool area where the only bar that was open late was located. The DJ at the pool area played music that was not suited for the crowd (except on white hot party night) at ear splitting volume levels even though on most nights there were about 20-30 people in the bar/pool area. This made it impossible to hear one another even when yelling while seated at the same table, it was enough to drive you away. The only other bar areas open late were the smoky casino, or the (appropriately) loud disco. Food was extremely average, and don't order the ribeye, it belonged on a roll with onions, peppers, and cheese. It was as thin as a good philly steak sandwich steak.

Sapphire Princess

March 2014 - Sapphire Princess to Mexico

Good choice for a short cruise on the west coast.

Nice short cruise with at least one good port. I'm a fan of Princess and this was a pretty average experience for a Princess cruise. The boat was getting ready to head out to the Orient and it seemed like they were starting to prepare for that cruise at the expense of this itinerary to some degree. The poker table had been removed from the casino in preparation as well as a few other things.

JeffJF's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - We set up our own arrangements to visit Sandy Toes on Rose Island a great relaxing excursion on a secluded island.
Miami, Florida - Take the city cruise from Bayside it was a great way to see the area.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - We set up our own arrangements to Paradise Cove (deadmans reef) for snorkeling. The staff was great and it was way cheaper than the crowded excursions from the ship.
Santa Barbara, California - Great little town to walk around in. Check Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives for a good Mexican lunch walking distance to the ship, as well as a couple local microbreweries in walking distance as well.
Ensenada, Mexico - Might be a nice place to do an excursion, but not a nice place for walking around.
Sapphire Princess Sapphire Princess - The rear adult only pool is a great place to relax in relative peace. My favorite spot on the ship.
Nassau, Bahamas - We booked an excursion to Sandy Toes (Rose Island) on our own. Great day!
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - Paradise cove for snorkeling, book it yourself. Way cheaper then ship excursions and way less people. The staff there was great.
Norwegian Sky Norwegian Sky - Bring earplugs if you want to enjoy the deck in the evening.
