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

I was worried after reading reviews if I would enjoy this cruise. I was surprised how nice the ship is. The staff were all nice, the food was good. The buffet garden cafe had something for everyone, the specialty dining was excellent. ... 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

Let me start off with that I was somewhat apprehensive before this cruise because of the negative reviews. This is my 12th cruise but my 1st with NCL. All my others have been with Princess. I sailed with a friend and I’m in my ... Read more

This ship is nice for 1st time cruisers but, for myself we have cruised several different lines and found the Sky to be abit small and VERY crowded. The staff was very good, although the bartenders were very slow in getting drinks to the ... Read more

This was our third cruise. Two have been with Norwegian and one with Royal Caribbean. I have to say that I prefer the service we get on Norwegian. The ship staff is friendly, helpful and plentiful. When we went on RC, I felt like we ... 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

We've thought about cruises in the past, but it took a little nudge from our son to get us to do it. The weather the first day/night was a little rough but certainly didn't stop us from having a good time. Every single person that I ... Read more
