This was a short break after New Year as it was too soon to fly home to UK & flights were still expensive. So an all inc cruise to Bahamas on Sky was a no brainer! We were worried there would be heaps of drunken party animals, but this ... Read more

Just a three day get away for New Years Eve. The ship is old, tired and very dirty. The rooms tiny (we had a mini suite) NOT. Cabin Attendant good. The quality of soap and shampoo so poor we went to store and bought our own. The service ... Read more

With the Sky now just doing 4 and 3 day Bahamas cruises - with no days at sea, maybe most have their expectations set going in. I knew the age of the ship and that this would just be a quick weekend getaway - but I still left feeling like ... Read more

We, and 6 other couples, went to celebrate New Years in a different way. We have cruised many times, on Norwegian and other lines, and know what to expect. Our first cabin was 8029, which is likely the worst cabin on the ship. It ... Read more

We have sailed 7 times, from low budget (Imperial Majesty/Bahamas Celebration) to Carnival, nothing higher and we should learn that you get what you pay for. We got a good deal on this cruise, so we took it, but it was just not very ... Read more

We've cruised NCL since 1999. The food has steadily gone downhill with each cruise. This one was the worst yet. Worst quality, worst variety. Overcooked meat to the point of being dried out. Too much repetition of the menus. NCL is cutting ... Read more

This was my sixth cruise but my first on Norwegian. It will probably be my last on Norwegian. In contrast to my experiences on both Celebrity and Holland-American cruise lines, the buffet was very small, with few choices other than ... Read more

This was our family's 1st cruise (total of 5 of us) and we were directed by our travel agent that the Sky was a good 1st cruise option. We have 3 children 23, 19, and 15. We had 2 interior staterooms which turned out to be great. ... Read more

First time on Norwegian. I believe the included price for drinks( Sky) was the best part of the cruise. We didn't see any ship port tours that looked good. We chose a private taxi tour on Nassau and were happy with that. All the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the price and the open bar concept. We were not disappointed. My husband and I spent $1000. for both of us to sail on this four day cruise including a balcony cabin (well worth the extra cost) I spent every ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to get away for a few days and because it was reasonably priced and included the open bar. It was a good time with lots of music and dancing! The ship shows its age but it was very smooth and you ... Read more

This is one of the worst cruises we have gone to. We know that the 3-4 day cruises aren't great but always known for being fun not fancy. Here are a list of experiences we had and you be the judge: The Norwegian Sky does not ... Read more

I wanted a cruise that would be inexpensive and offer bonus things like free drinks. I have been on Sky before it became the open bar ship. Fearing that the drinks would be weak, hard to get, poor service, and all other fears that could ... Read more

This was our first time cruising Norwegian since our honeymoon 35 years ago. We have cruised Celebrity, Carnival, and RCI. We chose this cruise because of the price. I mean, who can argue with $199 pp for a night cruise? We did upgrade to ... Read more

For their 20th Anniversary my company from New Jersey celebrated this milestone by taking all their employees on the cruise. My first impression of the ship was colorful bright and cheery. Our state rooms were larger than I thought and ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a last minute warm weather destination because it was a GREAT value. We flew from Chicago to Miami and were on the ship by 11:30 a.m. but had to wait for our room to be ready (1:30 p.m.) They served us cocktails ... Read more

The week after Thanksgiving is a great time to cruise as it is inexpensive and uncrowded. There were relatively few families on board, but lots of young singles from South America. We found no lines getting checked in, being seated for ... Read more

This was our 4th sailing on the Sky and I have to say we were a little disappointed. We've always enjoyed the short weekend trips, and the ability to just get away from everything, but it feels like the ship has gone downhill. The rugs on ... Read more
