NCL Sky...diverted cruise

Sail Date: October 03, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The entire cruise was an excellent journey. Crew was fantastic, enjoyed the shows, ship very clean and well maintained. Captain kept us safe and very well informed on the happenings of Hurricane Matthew. I would sail this ship again in a heartbeat.

Cabin / Stateroom Cabin was very nice, very comfortable. Found closer to be well suited except there was not enough drawer space. Loved the balcony, room steward was fantastic.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Disembark process was a bit chaotic but that also to be expected. We were late getting in due to Port of Miami being closed until late that very day. So many people carried luggage of ship that it created a bottleneck, but again to be expected under circumstances.
Ship Quality
Ship well maintained and very clean. A few spots on carpet on 9th deck but that's to be expected. Always saw crew busy working and cleaning
Destinations and Excursions
Diversion took us to Key West and Cozumel...glad Cozumel was booked thru NCL as we were late returning to ship. Had a blast in Key West. Soaked in as much as we could.
Onboard Activities
Very good. We stayed busy. Night activities had more to offer but that's just me. Stayed off the ship in every port.
Children's Programs N/A
Best show and cast I have ever seen including that of the Mega Ships.
Service and Staff
Amazing service...can't say enough. Actually wrote a letter and presented it to Guest Services about how pleased we were.
Food and Dining
Good food. Presentation good
Miami, Florida
Ok in Miami.
Nassau, Bahamas
Did not go due to Hurricane Matthew. Visited Key West instead
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Island was still closed for my cruise and we went West instead due to Hurricane Matthew.


No tips to think of...just get on the ship and explore. Never had to wait long in any sort of line. Amazing service!
