June 2015 - 4 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Sky
Not a cruise for children or young adults
This particular cruise ship is more for the older generation. There is not much for children and young adults to do, besides the islands and pool. With only one pool t gets rather crowded. I recommend finding a different ship if you like the night life and hanging out with friends. The islands were beautiful but if you do any shopping use cash not credit card or debit card as they will charge you a VAT, and possibly charge you twice. On Freeport beach and Nassau beach the natives are constantly hustling you to buy stuff (alcohol, hair braiding, clothing, etc) which makes it impossible to just relax and enjoy the beach. In Freeport it was very difficult to find a spot on the beach to sit our beach blanket down and relax. Every time we got ready to sit down someone was there explaining it was resort property and we had to pay extra resort fee (hustling,I am sure). We just left the beach an went back to the ship for lunch. Be aware you will get hustled every where you go. Great Stirrup Cay (private island) was the only beach/island where we could relax and enjoy time on the beach. I am not bitter. I had a good time relaxing in my balcony room while on the ship but I do not like being hustled. If you want to book shore excursions wait until you are on the island because they will give you lower prices that you can find online and the activity is the same. Just my personal opinion.
