We had taken this cruise several months ago, we had such a good time we had to do it again. The cabin was comfortable. The food was better than average. We like the unstructured style. The crew and staff was friendly and attentive. The ... Read more

WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!! This was the first cruise I have been on in years and will likely be the last. To begin, we arrived at the terminal and were quickly shown to priority check-in. This process was quick and pleasant. However, after ... Read more

I had some reservations about this 4 night cruise on the Norwegian Sky 'Party Boat' as we are a couple in our early 60s. I read many reviews and on balance decided to give it a go as the cruise represented great value for the price paid ... Read more

We were looking for a cruise on this specific date and only 2 were available, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian. Having previously cruised on the Norwegian line we decided we wanted to cruise again on this line. To our dismay the Norwegian ... Read more

Some said this is a laid back cruise line for older people but that was not my experience. I found just as many young people aboard this cruise ship as I have found on similar priced Carnival fun ships. My only negatives was that the bar ... Read more

RESERVATIONS Booked directly through NCL via their website, very easy to navigate. Selected cabin, make dinner plans and paid for all in about 15 minutes. You should know that the day your cruise leaves, you are no longer able to view ... Read more

I've read a lot of reviews before this trip. Some of them had me very concerned about this trip. Turned out to be a really great trip! Everything on the ship was great. Nassau was not that great. Also keep in mind NONE of the shops open ... Read more

4th time cruising, just wanted a short getaway with friends. Sailed the first time with Norwegian. This ship was a party boat so if you were expecting a luxury pampering cruise you would be disappointed. Was surprised to learn that the ... Read more

The Norwegian Sky was awesome. It was all inclusive on alcohol so that was a huge savings. It is freestyle dining so there are no assigned dinner reservations. It is a very casual experience. They do have specialty restaurants you can dine ... Read more

Fourth trip on this cruise line. First on the Sky. Pretty ship. Some updating needs to be done. Dining rooms nice but the food was unimpressive. Long wait for dinner to be served and it was only warm. Buffet was average. Breakfast ... Read more

Arrived at the port at 1130. Easily boarded at 1200 ish. Have your paperwork in order and it will always go fast. The ship is older as I had known. It was clean, rooms were smaller but for a 4 nighter I had no problem with that. The ... Read more

The cabin met expectations, quite honestly nothing to complain there.. we had some noisy neighbors one night which is expected from a these 'all you can drink' weekend cruises, so that wasn't too bad. We were expecting a lot more from ... Read more

I chose this cruise as an add on to a 10 day Serenade of the Seas one I'd booked, as I like to make my airfare count! I used Jiffy Jeff to get me from FLL airport to Miami port & he offered great service ($15 shared, $45 alone), ... Read more

If you are looking for a great "bang for your buck," this is your cruise. This is mostly due to the all-inclusive beverages... juices, sodas, wines, beers, missed drinks, etc. With drinks on ships costing about $10, you can ... Read more
