If you are looking for a lot of alone time and don't have kids in that early tween age than this will work great for you. We had the "larger" balcony cabin and the three of us had to work in single file. The kids program doesn't offer much to do during the day and at night they start charging you at 10:30. We have an 11 year old and I couldn't see leaving her with like 1 other kid for the "babysitting" hours while I tried to have fun. Food is just that-food. The specialty restaurants are nice, but again-just food! They only offer 1 main dish on the afternoon and eveing buffets so it is like they force you to eat in the dining room-or pay for the specialty restaurants. We didn't go for the food, so we just ate whatever. Staff is more stand-offish than on other ships and it is suppose to be the youngest fleet but a lot of things in our cabin were broken and the steward said they all are like that. Again, we made it a nice time-wasn't horrible by any means but just not what I thought it would be.

Used their Atlantis adventure for our day in Nassau. Good price for getting you in there and allowing you to use the amenties. Lunch was included, but all you got was hamburger or hot dog-oh, maybe some fried chicken.
Don't Miss: Paradise Island-Atlantis

Not much to do, and not enough beach chairs for everyone. Very pretty there, nice little straw market but get their early or prepare to sit in the sand.

Pros: Freedom to dress as we wanted for the evening.

Cons: Children's program, food choices

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!
