Ship Facts: Norwegian Sky Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Sky Deck Plans
First time cruise a success
It had been a while that I wanted to try a cruise and our tenth anniversary was a good occasion. Ten years ago we had our honeymoon in the Bahamas (Atlantis) and this seemed like a nice opportunity to go back there and so I booked the NCL Sky cruise from September 15-21 from Miami to the Bahamas as a surprise to my wife. We were joined by another couple of friends from Europe that were first time cruisers as well.

The check-in went very smooth and the staff was very friendly off- and on-board, everybody had a smile for us.

Our balcony room was very nice and it didn't take long for our bags to arrive in front of the cabin.

After reading a couple reviews I was expecting less than average food but I must say I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food in all restaurants. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were always very good. Food was always hot and we were never dissappointed.

The ship was clean everywhere and the room steward made sure that our cabin was always tidy as well.

In Freeport we went to the beach in Lucaya and just had a nice day there. The ratio of locals trying to sell tours and tourists must have been 1:1 but it was a nice beach day. On the second stop in Nassau we decided to go for the Atlantis Aquaventure and had a lot of fun in the waterpark (the lazy river with waves and rapids is so much fun) and as well revisiting the beaches on Paradise Island that we went to ten years ago.

Last stop was Great Stirrup Cay which made for another amazing beach day. We just hung out for hours in the water, walked the island a bit and ate some really good barbeque.

On board we mostly just hung out by the pool, ate, relaxed, slept... didn't really go to any of the entertainment as the shows were mostly on when we were eating or doing something else.

Overall a very positive first experience and I would definitely cruise with NCL again!
