Great first cruise!!!

Sail Date: April 25, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise and really had an open mind going in to it. The NCL staff did not disappoint. Several dining options..not just buffet style. Specialty restaurants were first rate. We thought the food was really good. Love that the ship was set times for meals, so it allowed you to skip a meal if you want. Can't say enough about the staff. They are so accommodating, from the housekeeping staff, to the wait staff, to the concierge. We celebrated a birthday while on board and our stateroom was decorated, a cake delivered to our room...really nice touches. We thought the entertainment was great, nightly shows, dancing, casino or a simple easy listening session to bands all throughout the ship every night. Would definitely recommend for first timers..looking forward to trying another NCL ship in the future.

Pros: Friendliness and courtesy of all staff members.

Cons: Nothing!,

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
You do not have to buffet all the time!!! Cagneys Steakhouse is first rate! You have to pay a small cover charge but it is well worth it!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Can't say enough about this. Housekeeping visits your room twice a day and ensures you have enough towels, ice in your ice bucket etc...We had a couple of minor repairs that needed to be taken care of during our stay and both were fixed within a couple of hours of first reporting it.
Full schedule all day of different things to do.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
A great day at the beach. We parasailed and our guides were friendly, funny and made the experience memorable. NCL is making enhancements to the island ...should be spectacular once that is completed.
Nassau, Bahamas
We did a day trip to Atlantis and visited their waterpark. A beautiful reort..a great day if you have kids. There is a marketplace right at the pier and just outside it's gates. Lots of local shops..
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Unless you are doing an excursion, there I nothing to to see here. We took advantage of the ship this day which was great.
