Norwegian Sky

January 2013 - Norwegian Sky to Caribbean - Bahamas

Great (shorter) cruise on NCL SKY

The sky is a older ship (1999, was at one point a Hawaiian Cruiser) but you wouldn't know it from looking. The smaller vesil is actually really nice compared to the new MEGA ships NCL is building. Getting on and off the ship was a breeze. With food and drink readily available. The stateroom was ready about 20 minutes after we got on board and our room with a balcony was great. The steward was very friendly and made cool towel animals. The food was great especially the french specialty restaurant "le bistro" (escargot and sword fish steak) The main two dining rooms were awesome with a lobster tail available every night. Like most cruise lines the are happy to service you multiple appetizers and entrees. The buffet lacked a little luster but was still good. Many activities on the trip, you'll never be able to do everything. It was a shorter cruise which is was we wanted. (four nights with three different island stops) Grand Bahama is first which had a great beach/shopping. Second is Nassau which I would skip entirely if I could do it again. To many people and to many cars and frankly... too much like home. No seafood and to many tshirt shops. The last island is great sturrip cay which NCL owns. They put on activities and lunch. Do your snorkeling here. they provide equipment (for a cost) and have a good variety of snorkeling spots with lots of action. A great short cruise. I dint want to be on a ship for 7-10 days and it was a steal of a deal. THE BEST PART IS THE STAFF. Everyone tries so hard and you can tell they actually care about you having a fun great time.

Tom88's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - not worth getting off the boat, too crowded and nothing to do but buy t shirts or cigars. the other two stops are by far better
Norwegian Sky Norwegian Sky - Bring a huge alcohol budget with you. Beers are 5.50 but can be bought at a discount in a bucket of ice. Most cocktails are 6+. A soft drink pass can be bought by the day or by the trip or else your stuck with icewater or iced tea
