Not bad for a first cruise

The ship itself was not bad. The overall condition was good and presentable. The ship appeared to be well maintained.

Pros: Shore excursion options

Cons: Bad encounters with staff members

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!

Service and Staff
Had some unfortunate encounters with the staff right from the start. It was hit and miss in regards to treatment fromt he crew. Some crew treated us great, while others did not seem to really put any effort in what they were doing.
Ship Quality
The ship was a small/older ship. Public areas and decor resembled that of a normal hotel lobby area. Nothing too flashy (didn't need to be), but fit well. It was hard to move throughout certain areas of the boat (certain dining room layouts were very narrow).
Cabin / Stateroom
Rooms were small (as expected), but well maintained. The only downfall was the bed and pillows, extremely uncomfortalbe and made it hard to get a decent night sleep.
Seminars, bingo, and auctions seemed to be the majority of the activities. There were a few shows, but not many. The quality of the shows was somewhat enjoyable.
Food and Dining
The food was spectacular! The free dining was great and available 24/7 and even the dinners that required a "cover charge" were great also.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
We did the Lucayan Park kayak, beach, and cave excursion which was excellent! Would have been nice to have a little more time at the beach, but it was worth the money paid.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
The beach was gorgeous, but didn't offer a whole lot to do except snorkel or swim (snorkeling was worth the money). Hippo slide is not worth the extra money. Great for a relaxtion spot, but if you're looking for a lot of activities, this may not be one of your more enjoyable spots.
Nassau, Bahamas
Sea Lion encounter was an awesome exhibit. Had hands on interaction with sea lions which was a neat experience.
