Review summaryThis was a cruise that was booked for our honeymoon because it worked with our time off (original plan was to go glamping for a week). We chose Cuba because, well, why not? This was our first time on Norwegian, and we had been told by other Norwegian "veterans" not to judge our Norwegian experience off the Sky. We were actually impressed at the port, long lines to check in and get your visa's, but NCL had a gentleman who was in charge of ensuring that guests were directed to the next open assistant, very smooth. Then, there were crew members to greet you as you actually boarded and a hand wash attendant ("Washy Washy!!) before you entered. Our stateroom was small but clean and finding our way to the Oslo Deck was a little adventure (its like deck 6.5 and you have to go to deck 7 to access it). The mandatory evacuation drill was very hot and very noisy-there is construction going on at the NCL port which made hearing some of the announcements very difficult. Cuba was old and tired. Looking beyond the facade of the buildings, it was obviously once a beautiful city. Perhaps we will return there someday to see if the city has been rebuilt. The food was very good, the buffets were nice, slightly different choices on each side of the buffet and lunch time sandwiches were nice! (Upon embarkation we just really wanted a light lunch and the tuna salad croissants were excellent). We did experience on hiccup with the cruise, and that was our mini-fridge being locked up on the second night of our cruise. It took several attempts to get anyone to come and unlock it so we could put our waters in to cool. Overall, the cruise was good. We enjoyed our time on the Sky and would likely cruise on that ship again. Disembarkation was easy and smooth.
Food and Dining
Food was excellent, the staff very attentive and would definitely recommend this!
They seem to have too many seats packed into the theater, difficulty to get into anything but the front row. The comedian was ok. Was, perhaps, a little offensive for the family show. The Rock and Roll Show was pretty good, a good cover of some classic rock songs.
