Norwegian Sky

October 2014 - Norwegian Sky to Caribbean - Bahamas

good, but not great....

Good ports...Freeport and Nassau were very commercial, nothing with an exclusive feeling. The excursions offered were standard tourist activities. More should be offered to explore the natural beauty and history of the island, if it was offered we didnt notice due to the ongoing promotions to go to the commercial conglomerates such such as Atlantis. Stirrup Cay was a pleasent suprise! The island was exclusive fun and beautiful...not real commercial. The ferry to and from the island was awful! Had to wait over and hour just to get on the ferry, and then another 30-45 min for other passengers to get settled. The onboard entertainment was minimal. Unless u enjoy losing your money at cruiseship casinos or listening to cheesy bands...there was nothing else really going on. No comedy shows, no features....other than a vegas show that was more like a vegas parody that they showed every night. The nightclub crowd was ok, the dj was good, but the setup was awkward. It was blatantly a multipurpose room with a bar(of course), and a makeshift dance area, with no real nightclub feel at all. The crew was great, like most good cruiseship or hotel staff, they do there jobs and stay out the way. The buffet was quick an convenient, nothing spectacular, just a typical buffet. The dining rooms on the other hand looked better than the food tasted. The menus had all the fancy words and dishes with hardly any flavor. After waiting extensively for water, service and ultimately a disappointing dish...we often wished we would have just went to the buffet. To some it all up it, the cruiseship entertainment , food and ports weren't great, but for the price and the 3 ports u get in 5 days, you can make it as wonderful as your imagination and pocketbook will allow you too....which we did!!!

macdon213's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - went glass bottom kayaking and snorkeling. water was beautiful the people were great, really felt like the Bahamas
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - it rained early in the morning so we didnt make it in time to kayak thru the national forest...we went on a cheap island tour(MR T) and ended up on a beautiful beach which wa very relaxing
Norwegian Sky Norwegian Sky - Have as much fun as u can on excursions because the ship offers nothing standout for evening entertainment...note to NCL, carnival has George Lopez to thank for awesome evening entertainment. Every night those comedy shows were packed! And the shows were good..it was the highlight to every evening.
