A bit disappointing...

Sail Date: December 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The staff and crew of the ship were EXCELLENT, no complaints there. The food was okay, but not nearly as good as some other cruise lines. The main problem we had was that not only were the shore excursions for the Nassau day canceled because of rough water, but the entire day at Grand Stirrup Cay was canceled as well. Now, we knew that the ship did not want to risk safety, and we knew that weather conditions could not be controlled by the crew. HOWEVER, we spoke to several patrons of other lines in Nassau whose excursions went on as planned, and noted that the waves at the beach really weren't all that bad. Not only that, but the line made no attempt to divert the cruise to some other port that we could have enjoyed, nor did it reimburse, even by offering some sort discount on further cruises (which would have been an excellent marketing strategy in itself). We had actually taken a cruise on a line that had done the latter before, and ended up booking our next cruise on the spot. Anyway, it was an okay cruise otherwise, but a big disappointment in the destinations department.

Pros: The "Freestyle" cruise method

Cons: all of our shore excusions were canceled due to rough water....

Recommends Norwegian Sky? No.
