Sail Date: May 18, 2009
Ship: Norwegian Sky
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship was beautifully fitted out, everything seemed new, and even when things didn't work i.e. the toilet didn't flush it was sorted out quickly and efficiently.
The staff were all, to a man, so helpful, polite and efficient.

Food was also excellent.

5 out of 5
It was good to be able to look around the town. Whilst on the ship though the shore excursion people made it sound like you coulnd't visit Paradise Island and Atlantis without booking onto an excursion but we since discovered this isn't true and we could have looked around and used their restaurants. I know the company wanted us to book a shore excursion, but it would have been nice to know this option was available.

We took a shore excursion at this point, and it was good, although we had to wait a very long time for a tender to take us bck to the base to meet our driver. He waited, which was very good, but the whole party was worried when were were delivered back 40 minutes late.
Don't Miss: dolphins

Pros: The friendly and helpful staff

Cons: Not being able to sit anywhere without someone trying to sell me a drink - if I wanted a drink i would have gone to get it or called them over!

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!
