Norwegian Sky may be a teenaged ship, but a decidedly youthful feeling is evident onboard. The average age on this 77,104-ton, 2,004-passenger vessel is lower than on many other ships, likely because it offers ...

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

This was our first cruise and overall Id say it was pretty awesome! We ate at 2 of the specialty restaurants, the steakhouse as well as the Italian one and both were good. The buffet food was just so-so, typical buffet food , but the main ... Read more

There was some apprehension on both my and my wife's part before we boarded this ship because of some of the reviews we read. But not only did we not experience anything close to some of the horrors people described, we were actually ... 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

We love to cruise in the Caribbean and because we have never been before to the Bahamas, we decided to go on a cruise also there. When we searched for the best one, we discovered the Norwegian Sky with Free Open Bar and that was the main ... 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

This was my third cruise on the Sky. The first was September 2014 for a romantic weekend getaway. The second was in March 2015 for a family weekend trip during spring break and finally this one in April for a girls weekend. Each time I ... 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

This was a girls week away- no hubbies or kids. It was a nice little break. Great weather for a short trip to the Bahamas! Overall, I enjoyed my time on the ship. I had been on her before, so I knew what to expect. My companion is ... Read more

This is a great starter cruise for first-timers, or for anyone wanting a weekend away. Because we were 3 to a room, we decided to get one with a balcony (9266), but there really isn't much to see, so next time, I would opt for window only ... Read more

This was our third Norwegian cruise and we were looking forward to another great experience. Unfortunately, it was not to be. We found ourselves stuck on the ship with about 1000 college students on Spring Break. Norwegian accommodated ... Read more

Not knowing exactly what to expect as a first time cruiser, I nevertheless always expect service with a smile, and that's exactly what I experienced aboard Norwegian Sky. Every Norwegian staff I encountered was cordial and helpful. The ... Read more

Visiting the Bahamas was a pleasure and I will certainly go again, but there's literally no chance we'll ever cruise with Norwegian again. We didn't pay the inflated Norwegian excursion prices and instead worked directly with locals. ... Read more

My husband, my two kids, and I took this cruise because it was advertised as a family friendly vacation. Much to my dismay, when we arrived at the ship, it was overrun with college students. Apparently, this cruise was advertised to them ... Read more
