3 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip) Sail Date: October 10, 2008 Ship: Norwegian Sky Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 8 years ago
The ship appeared clean and attractive, but the stateroom was so small that I literally had to crawl over the bed to get out of bed.
Food and Dining
1 out of 5
The free-stlye dining experience doesn't work. It took two hours to get through each meal, waiting 20 minutes or more for each course to be served. The portions were incredibly small and the availability of food was poor. We ended up eating very early so we wouldn't have to wait in line for the main dining room. Then by 10:30 or 11 p.m. we wanted a light, healthy snack and nothing by high-fat bar food was available. We've never been on a ship where food was so unaccessible. Also, the appetizers, salads and soups are all jumbed together on the menu, giving the impression that they really only want you to order one, not an appetizer and salad for example. Then it takes soooooo long to serve each course that it becomes frustrating.

We watched the music/dancing show on the second night and it was good except the theatre was so cold.
Service and Staff
1 out of 5
My wedding ring was stolen out of the stateroom while the card reader was being replaced. When we went to guest relations and the statesroom staff, no one would help. Their only comment was that no one on our staff would do that. They wouldn't investigate or help us to resolve the issue. They just tried to cover their behinds.

Cabin / Stateroom
1 out of 5
The smallest statesroom I've ever seen. I had to crawl across the corner of the bed to get out of bed.
Buy and bring your own snorkel equipment. It was $40 to rent low quality equipment. Also, they required that we rent life vests at $5 each even thought they were the vests that don't blow up unless there is an emergency. The beach was clean and beautiful, but there weren't enough umbrellas and those that got there late ended up in the sun without umbrellas.
This was our third trip to Nassau and I can't reccommend going there. Atlantis has become too expensive to visit and the poor people at the market were all over us. We went to the beach for a bit, but the individuals driving jet skis were driving all through the swimming area and I was afraid to snorkel because it was total chaos with no one really overseeing or requiring the crazy jetskiiers to driver outside the buoyes.
Don't Miss: Skip the whole port. It was dirty and the vendors were intrusive.
