This was our third cruise. We had previously sailed on the Getaway last year and the Reflection the year before and both were 7 night cruises. Truthfully after our previous great experiences on these two ships I lowered my expectations for ... Read more

Just got back from a fun 4-night cruise to the Bahamas on the NCL Sky. This is one of the older and smaller NCL ships. On the plus side, it offered the unlimited beverage package as standard, which is why I think that this ship had a ... Read more

I went into this cruise very skeptical due to a previous poor experience on the "greyhound" of cruise lines (Carnival). This cruise changed my view on traveling by sea and I will definitely travel with Norwegian again. The ... Read more

My husband and I had booked a cruise on Norwegian sky for Feb 1-5 and after booking it I went to this site, read some reviews, and was wicked nervous that we had just booked a cruise from hell. From first stepping onto the ship to stepping ... Read more

This may be a little lengthy, but worth it for those of you who read as many reviews as I did leading up to this cruise. First of all, my wife and I went on this cruise with her brother and wife as a short getaway. We are in our thirties ... Read more

First off I have to say that the specialty dining restaurants are excellent. I consider myself a bit of a foodie and am hard to impress, but I have to say the service, food and atmosphere in the space was special. All of the crew where ... Read more

The food was terrible, and both my husband and I couldn't wait to get off the boat to get a good meal. Probably the only thing we enjoyed was the Porterhouse steak. The unlimited drinks were amazing, so if you don't care about food ... Read more

We have been on Norwegian cruises before and also on the Sky. Found it to be clean and decorated well and in good shape - looked no different from the last time we cruised the ship. It did not look old or worn. All the staff we ... Read more

This was our first trip to the Bahamas. Although we were greeted in a friendly manner upon arrival, most of the staff was not courteous or helpful on the cruise. They made you feel like you had no business asking us such a stupid ... Read more

We decided to do a short cruise to see how we would like it. We enjoyed seeing the Bahamas but do not feel a need to ever go back to Nassau. Embarkation went quite well but I only have to compare it to other reviews. We found a bar on ... Read more

To start, Norwegian has just begun offering all inclusive alcohol to ALL passengers (of legal age of course) starting this year. Apparently they are the first cruise to do this and apparently the cruise I went on was the first time they ... Read more

I was not happy to find out that a onboard promotion credit remained unused and was not applied to my Nassau excursion because I paid for it in advance. Had I known that, I would not have prepaid any excursions. NCL solved the problem but ... Read more

Room size (interior deck9)was a little bigger than on the Norwegian Star. Condition of the room was good. There was a visable gap between the bottom of the door and the floor which allows noise from the hallway to enter the room but ... Read more

For our first cruise, we looked for criteria to match our dates and style. That criteria was a short cruise to guard against not liking the experience, the ability to have luxury upgrades (room, dining), and dates that would match our ... Read more
