Not an A, but a B

Sail Date: October 31, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Recommend for first time cruisers, but if you have been on other nicer lines like royal Carib, you will consider this a step down. Food, casino, cable TV not quite up to par, last minute change of itin that didnt stop at private island. Onboard shopping didnt offer good deals. Bingo was very pricey

Pros: Price, availability, and $50 onboard credit

Cons: Everything was just not quite up to par

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!

Ship Quality
Some of the bars and clubs were very nice, but the ship seemed a little small. Bathrooms were like broom closets and general passage areas seemed a little too tight.
Food and Dining
Buffets were a little too "snacky", not enough substance. Buffets were very unorganized, especially salad bar. Really enjoyed the Longboard Bar with late night bar food, but why did the bar close for drinks at 1:30 on Sunday night when they were still serving food? And they ran out of half the menu
Cabin / Stateroom
Too small, especially shower
Service and Staff
Lacked a certain something.
Changed all of the times of activites on last day when we didnt stop on the private, threw everything off. Very, very disappointed.

Casino offerred alot of special coupons and benefits, but no table games had minimums under $10. Only one roullete table!! Just too small for such a big ship. Royal Carib was twice as big.
Nassau, Bahamas
Nassau is either overpriced or scuzzy. Stay away from the locals.
Don't Miss: Senor Frogs bar
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Didnt go because of weather, very very dissappointed. Private island was the best part of my Royal Carib cruise
