3 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 19, 2008
Ship: Norwegian Sky
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was better than we expected for a 3 night Bahama's weekend cruise. We expected a party croud but instead found many families and wide range of people.
The pools were too cold. Felt like ocean water pumped right in to the pool, which is probably what it was because it was salt water. The hot tubs were nice.
The private island was awesome, and probably the best part of the cruise! Nice beach, plenty of chairs, decent food. A great value.

Glass bottom boat was nice. Straw market is good to check out once. We've been there 3 times and it's nothing great. Bargain with them! Take a taxi to the beach on Paradise Island, it was worth it. Bargain with the cab drivers too! They say $4 per person, but we had 2 adults and 2 kids for $10. Get the price before you get it.
Don't Miss: Paradise Island beach

A very relaxing day on the private beach. Typical grilled food was OK. Go early, stay late.
Don't Miss: Go early to enjoy the whole day.

Pros: The Private Island

Cons: Kids Activities
