Being one of the first regularly scheduled cruises to Cuba, I thought Norwegian did a very good job. It was clear the Norwegian Sky recently underwent some upgrades...carpets and furniture in public areas and restaurants looked great. In ... Read more

WI decided on this trip as an opportunity to see Cuba before it changes too much with more tourism. Thought that a four day cruise would be a party ship, but was quickly surprised to find mostly middle aged and up adults who wanted to ... Read more

My friend and I were looking for a cruise to see how she would like cruising when I found the cruise to Cuba. Cuba is one of those places that I have always wanted to go so when I saw it I jumped on board! This was only my second cruise ... Read more

We got this cruise through our Wyndham ownership. It was the first cruise for both of us, so we were looking forward to it. The process of getting from the pier to the ship was smooth and easy, but once on board we didn't know what to do ... Read more

We chose this cruise because my husband wanted to try out a cruise and I wanted to see Cuba. We loved the cruise, the food was amazing, drinks unlimited, and service was great, with the exception of one rude security guard. We went to the ... Read more

We booked this cruise last fall when it was still a simple Bahamas cruise. Having the itinerary changed to Cuba was a very nice surprise. This was our first cruise on an NCL ship. The long line at embarkation in Miami moved steadily. We ... Read more

We chose the Sky specifically for the inaugural cruise to Cuba. We were on this ship on it's first cruise out of Europe in 1999. It is an older ship and much smaller than the new mega liners. However she is clean and since her dry dock, ... Read more

We chose this trip because we wanted to see Cuba before it "changed." We have never cruised with NCL before and never will again. Except for a very few exceptions, the staff were rude and didn't care about the guests. I don't ... Read more

The itinerary for this cruise is perfect. An overnight in Cuba and then a stop at their lovely private island. Being the lst cruise, we expected that there would be some issues with disembarkation, immigration, excursions but there were no ... Read more

Embark and disembark the easiest Cruise we have taken. NCL Sky ship was small but intimate. Cabins were small but great for a cruise. Service was wonderful. Dining gave you a variety. Port excursion to Beach was great, food wonderful. ... Read more

I really enjoyed my cruise, and I would definitely go again. The NCL Sky is older and smaller, but my room and all the public areas were clean and fresh. We had a good week, and a decent mix of people (old, young, etc.), but very few ... Read more

We have been on 20 cruises on 4 different cruise lines and this ship is one of the worst we have been on. We did not expect it to be the best cruise by any means when we booked it, but we got even less than expected. Getting onboard the ... Read more

Embarkation was quick and simple, disembarkation was disorderly, missing communication, and EXTREMELY long! We had one good meal on board. All other meals were were mediocre at best. The same food was served at most meals and wasn't good. ... Read more

SUMMARY: This was a wkend getaway for me and my sister in law. The embarkation was smooth and hardly any line. The disembarkation was organized as well. There was a line in customs but that has nothing to do with the ship. That is the Port ... Read more

We wanted a weekend cruise for a low stress family vacation where it was warm. This was perfect for me, my husband and my mom-in-law. The staff was wonderful to my mother-in-law, who is nearly 88. They made sure she could embark and ... Read more

We were invited on this cruise by another couple. I had never been on a cruise before, but my boyfriend had been on one over 10 years ago. Having nothing to compare it to, I thought this cruise was great! The ship was smaller than others ... Read more

Chose due to itinerary and length of trip. Ship is pretty outdated and has lots of creaks and banging noises when moving. Bed was hard as a rock, lumpy and tilted toward the head, pillows are no better. Bathroom was TINY. Shower about ... Read more

Embarkation was quick. We arrived at the port a little after noon, and were on the ship before 12:30. We immediately went to Crossings Main Dining Room and had a great first meal. Our room was ready right on time, and was clean and ... Read more

This cruise was a last-minute decision for a quick Spring Break getaway. A friend took care of the details for me and my daughter so I didn't really pay attention to what I was getting into. We joked about the open bar being included and I ... Read more

Choosing a cruise is difficult. Everyone has different wants and needs. Food, entertainment, ports, service, it goes on forever. The "open bar" was the main reason we choose the Sky. We were pleasantly surprised with the Sky ... Read more

It was a last minute vacation plan. We weren't really sure if we wanted to do a cruise so to satisfy our curiosity we went ahead and planned a quick weekend one to "test the waters", so to speak. We sure are thrilled we did. ... Read more
