From the time we got on the ship we were treated like family. The Free food and Drinks were a bonus. The staff were AMAZING! We cant wait to cruise again. Our cabin was done up everyday and night. Entertainment was GREAT! They had bingo, ... Read more

Having cruised many times on both Carnival and RC, we tried the Sky and were very impressed. Best staff and Main Dining options of any ship we have sailed. Excellent bars and potent drinks. Fun casino and pool parties. Nice cabin (8203 ... Read more

SHIP: Like most people we spoke to on the Cruise, we were there to see Cuba before it becomes "Americanized" and they figure out the "Tourist thing". We travelled with 3 other "Active" 55 + couples and did ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see Cuba. The cruise was a great first introduction to the country. We had almost two full days on shore in Havana. The last day was a relaxing beach day on NCL's private island (nice beach!). The ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we just wanted to visit Cuba and the Norwegian cruise stayed overnight giving us two full days in Havana. We assumed that Norwegian was comparable to other cruises we'd been on ( Holland American, Princess, ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we had gone on it last October and loved it. We had the kids last time (8,10,12) and they were a little bored around the pool. It is more of an adult pool. However we booked the Owners suite and it was even ... Read more

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

We chose this cruise because it went to Cuba. In retrospect we should have chosen a cruise that was in Cuba longer and gone to more ports. The disembarkation was late by 2 hours and very disorganized. The front desk did not have many ... Read more

Went on NCL's first Cuba trip. Good overall. Some glitches getting off ship in Cuba. Poorly organized as they did nothing to help those without ship excursions to get off the ship in a timely manner. They push you to the stern of the ship ... Read more

I've been wanting to cruise for a long time. The opportunity to take this Norwegian Sky cruise to Cuba came along and I said "yes!" And, I was not disappointed. From the moment I walked onto the beautiful ship, I was pampered, ... 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

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
