NCL Sky 4 Day Bahama Cruise

Sail Date: May 09, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Overall value for money is good with the all-inclusive package.  Monetary figures are known in advance.  The NCL Sky had a good mix of on-board activity and choices for on shore excursions.   Food was adequate in the open/non scheduled time frames.  The specialty eating areas or scheduled, were 1 grade up in quality.

Friendly staff.  You get what you pay for.   Overall Good Experience

Cabin / Stateroom
As with all cruise cabins, these are relatively small, but you don't spend much time in them. There could be more outlets for phone and IPad charging.
The bathroom outlet did not work. And there was some tape on the ceiling in 4 different locations that should have been taken down prior to our entry.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Smaller Ship. Getting from fore to aft was a but confusing, depending on level of the ship you are on.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs Not applicable for me. Just couples. Since this was all inclusive and relatively younger age group, would prefer limited children on this vessel and considering the unlimited drinking.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Compared to other cruises. this was 1 grade down, but value for money is the trade-off for all inclusive
Miami, Florida
Spent the day before and after the cruise. Nice city.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
The private beach excursion was reasonably priced. Beach set-up and service was great. Reasonable amount of activities with Volleyball, Line Dancing, Flip Cup was fun. The food could have a little better though.
Nassau, Bahamas
Did not go on excursion based on previous research. There are a lot of on-shore excursions, but is very touristy with the locals wanting to sell you everything and anything.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
I'd recommend this and best part of the cruise. NCL had a very nice layout of beach seating, to snorkel renting to beverage locations and BBQ eating area. The seagulls were very annoying. Please make signs for people not to feed them. It would help


Pack light.
