Review summary

Overall it was an excellent trip at a great price! I made memories with my mom that will last forever - it was her first cruise and I am happy that Norwegian provided a great experience for her!

Embarkation

4 out of 5
We were given the wrong terminal to report to and had to walk the length of the cruise port (from C to G) to get to our ship - your phone representatives need to be better informed. My mother was struggling in the heat to walk that distance with all our luggage.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Buffet was full and plentiful and one was open 24 hours a day......the dining experience lacked in that our servers never came back to get our dessert orders both nights that we did the sit down dinners

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We used the walking/jogging path and the pools. Both were wonderful assets.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The stage shows were wonderful. The comedian and magician were great! I would recommend more show times for these types of entertainers. The Parties, game shows, and other such events were SO MUCH fun!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our steward was always trying to offer us more comfort - we were always in good shape. He was a great attendant to us.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was always clean - everywhere! I wasn't real fond of the layout, having to walk through the dining areas to get to the back of the ship. The front lounge and kiddie pool was out of the way and under used. I would have preferred that area to be an adult serenity deck area honestly - with the views.....it was underappreciated.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was tiny, but all we did in there was change clothes, shower and sleep - it was well kept and 100% functional

Ship tip

I preferred the forward cabin - there seemed to be more movement in the aft end of the ship which made me feel sick one evening - didn't feel any motion on the forward areas.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

2 out of 5
only boarded and disembarked here - concrete jungle - no excursion

Key West, Florida

4 out of 5
very scenic - enjoyed the train tour to and from the ship which docked on the navy dock - did our own walking tour and shopping and found a small beach to relax at - no excursion

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
no excursion - did our own walking tour and found Junkanoo Beach - very satisfied with the beach and snorkeling opportunity here

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

5 out of 5
Thankfully, there was only the Norwegian Sun and Sky at this port this day so it was not crowded. The tender trip to and from was pleasant. The island was perfect for a day at the beach. The snorkeling here was perfect! Saw tons of tropical fish and even a Sting Ray! Plenty of beach chairs and the buffet was included. Perfect day!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
quick and easy!
