Norwegian Sky

May 2015 - 3 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Sky

Good, but not Great --

Good cruise -- very friendly and accommodating staff, nice ship.  Food at regular restaurants was sub-par though and food choices seemed repetitive from restaurant to restaurant and day to day.  Lots of little extra charges -- I.e. nicer restaurants and room service surcharge.  Drink package didn't include bottled water!? 

Entertainment was good, but again -- not great.  Wait staff had a very difficult time getting drinks for those attending due to seating set up. 

This was a low budget cruise -- $299/each including drink package and balcony room.  By the time we were done with just the upcharges though, we spent well over $500/each.  Still not bad, but I think next time I would opt for a cruise that gives a more all inclusive price with better food without having to upgrade.

dtchs's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - I hadn't been to Cozumel in many years, and they've really grown! Port area has lots of shops and some restaurants. Very nice area We took the Jose Cuervo tour offered by RCI. It was EXCELLENT. We learned A LOT about tequila -- many interesting facts we didn't know. Tasted some excellent Tequila, had a fabulous margarita made with tasty seasonings around the rim instead of the usual salt, had a wonderful lunch, toured a great museum and replicas of Mayan buildings and visited a very nice gift shop as well. Awesome!
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras - Awesome place. We took the Sand and Sea Tour offered through cruises.com. It's run by RRI on the island, and they seem to be an awesome group of people. We got to experience every kind of life on the island -- from the very poor areas to the very rich areas. Beautiful day on water and on land. Don't miss this tour. Andy was a fabulous guide -- lots of interesting info and history.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - Another great place! We had planned on going to their town, but stayed in the port area because it was so awesome! They have a huge pool -- FREE! Lots of shops, restaurants, entertainment, swimming with stingrays (fee), etc. Very nice. Be sure to haggle with shop keepers and watch the exchange rate.
Key West, Florida - It's always great to visit Key West! We took the Trolley Tour for the first time this trip and were very glad we did. It tours the entire island and our guide gave us some great information on the history of the island as well as tips on good places to go/see.
Norwegian Sky Norwegian Sky - Treat yourself to upgraded dining. You'll be glad you did. Steaks at Cagneys very good.
