One word: fantastic

Sail Date: September 19, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was an excellent experience, so much so, that we are already planning our next with Norwegian! No problems at all, the entire crew were friendly, funny and helpful. Can't say enough positive things about it. The shore excursions do cost you, but we found the ones we chose were completely worth it.

Pros: entire ship was kept spotless, rooms were attended constantly, food was excellent everywhere we went

Cons: drinks were a bit on the pricey side, but that is it

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!

Ship Quality
Good size for the number of guests, plenty of chairs by the pool.
Food and Dining
Food was almost too good! Definitely visit the specialty restaurants, they are worth the small additional charge.
Cabin / Stateroom
staterooms are not huge, but you have to remember you're on a ship. Having said that, they are layed out very well. We had a balcony and that made it feel much larger.
Service and Staff
The staff on our trip were out of this world, they were there to enhance your vacation, and they did just that. The service was outstanding!
Attended a few of the shows on board, and a few shore excursions off the ship, all were fun and we are glad we signed up for them.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Do the excursion that takes you to the resort, and cross your fingers that David is your shuttle driver! You will laugh the whole way there and back, he was fabulous! We thought it was a bit pricey, but breakfast and lunch buffets are included, and drinks
Don't Miss: Viva Wyndam Resort
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Gorgeous site, and they are making it even better! Lunch is included, even if you don't go on an excursion. The island is fantastic, and some of the people that work on the island are locals, not off the ship, they are super friendly and very informative.
Don't Miss: The wave runner tour
Nassau, Bahamas
It is very nice, and this is the place to shop for souveniers, but the locals can get a bit pushy, which we didn't really enjoy. Senior frogs is a big party!
Don't Miss: Glass bottom boat tour was really neat
