Absolutely Fabulous

Sail Date: February 06, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

My husband and I had a wonderful experience.  Sin, the cruise director, did an amazing job making our trip fun and memorable.  He was always "ON".  We also enjoyed Russ, the comic, onboard.  He had us doubled over in laughter.  As well, the games were a total riot.

As you know nothing is ever perfect, though.  We thought the buffet food was excellent, but we were disappointed with the dining room's meal choices.  One more point,  I did not like the music choices played inside the buffet dining area.  Typically, it would be loud, rap music even during breakfast.  I enjoy rap, but I feel that it is more appropriately played in the bar areas not in the buffet dining area.

Overall, we have only shared how much we enjoyed ourselves and that we can not wait for our next opportunity to cruise with NCL. 

Ship Quality
We traveled on the Sky. It is a somewhat small ship, but that is what I loved the most. It felt very cozy. Cruising around the ship was quick and convenient.
Food and Dining
We loved the buffet, and we really enjoyed dining outside at the back of the ship. The lighting is very romantic. Although, we weren't excited about the main dining room meal choices. The buffet's menu was top notch.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an inside room, and it was everything we needed. Although, I would have prefered a queen mattress instead of two twin mattresses squeezed together.
Service and Staff
The entire staff was helpful and friendly. Staff members can make or break an experience, and the Sky's staff went above and beyond. They all appeared to be excited to work onboard the Sky.
Russ was an outstanding comic. He had us rolling in the aisle. The Las Vegas show was right from the Vegas strip. True star quality.
Onboard Activities
The games were absolutely hysterical and most creative.
Destinations and Excursions
There were great choices, but we had decided to just leisurely enjoy the ship and the islands. It was great to not have to be anywhere at any particular time.
Miami, Florida
We did not go on any excursions. We live in Florida, so we just drove home.
Nassau, Bahamas
We just walked around downtown and purchased souveniers.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
We brought our mask, snorkel and fins from home. We chose to snorkel from the beach. It was beautiful, shallow and we saw lots of fish.


The hot tub at the front of the boat is usually empty, and not everyone knows about. Its their best kept secret.
