Our family just returned from a 3 night bahama cruise on the NCL Sky. We travelled with 2 teenage girls ages 15 and 17. We all had a great time. The boat left from Miami and was primarily full of people from south Florida, although we are not. Arrival and checkin was very smooth, and most folks gathered by the pool the first day where alcohol flowed and the band was great. By the evening the music was really underway and people were dancing poolside to the sounds of a miami DJ mixing club music.
The second day was the private island. Absolutely beautiful. We rented a cabana. Totally worth it. Alcohol flowed all day and into the evening when the white hot party began. Everyone wears white and the pool deck was packed with people of every generation dancing to very loud club music. Many of the tunes seemed geared to the Latino population on board and folks were singing along and dancing to all the music. It is quite a scene. Alcohol is very prevalent on the ship and at this party, but the cruise personell seem to expect this and are watching to keep people safe. No one checks for underage drinking and although teens cannot buy alcohol, they are allowed to drink with a parents permission if they are over 18. In reality, no one is supervising anyone's age so if a teenager gets their hands on a drink no one will stop them.
The last day was at Nassau. We shopped and then hung out poolside. The party that night was in one of the clubs and our kids had a great time.
We did eat at all 3 specialty restaurants on board and they were excellent. Definatley worth the price.
We all had a great time and would recommend it to anyone who loves to drink, people watch, and dance the night away.
