Love the destination, hate the boat
Norwegian Sky Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: August 10, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Sky
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Review SummaryThe ship being small is not a big deal for me however the Norwegian Sky has seen better days. The ship really needs to some updating, but doing while they have guests on the boat is definitely not a good idea, the sound of construction work and relaxing don't really go together well.
If the construction was being done at 3 AM while no one was there would be one thing, but at 7:30 in the afternoon while there is still sun out and plenty of guests in the pool, that is inexcusable.
Food and Dining
On the second day while we were on the private beach, they took the buffet down to the island so people would not have to go back to the boat in order to eat. Well my wife and I decided to eat and the island and what a mistake that was. Both her and I were sick for the rest of the day, I guess I was lucky and was not throwing up, my wife was not that lucky however, and was throwing up the rest of the day.
Outside of that, the food is of "ok" quality, my wife and I were unable to find anything on the main buffet where we would say, "yes I want some more of that". The pizzas are ok, but you need to pay 5 dollars for each of them.
