January 2015 - 3 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Sky
Good overall, but food not good
Overall experience was good. Most of the staff friendly, clean, entertainment was good, excursions good, but food was not good. For our first cruise, this was not a good experience. Everyone always talks about how great the food is on a cruise, not the case here. Buffets had the same boring food every day, no variety, nothing really good. Tough getting a hot cup of coffee in the morning. Anything half way decent like omelettes and waffles in morning, there was a long wait. Wok station was pretty good. After disappointment with the buffets, we tried Crossings restaurant, not much better. Food was "ok", not bad, but not good either - wouldn't go back. Only good thing about it was I didn't gain any weight! Poor planning for superbowl sunday also - one area with big screen of course filled up, so no seats available, then one outside deck had a larger tv on one side of deck, nothing on the other, so we went to another deck area with about a 40" tv, sitting from 30 feet away - it was tough to see and couldn't hear the game, so we wound up going to our room to watch the game, which was less than ideal. After this experience for our first cruise, definitely would not cruise Norwegian again.
