Pleasantly surprised: Norwegian Sky Cruise Review by usermom
Overall Member Rating
We had a mid ship cabin on the 9th floor which was quite small but adequate to meet our sleeping and showering needs, and it was nice and quiet at night. Our cabin steward provided exceptional service. Beach towels were provided and exchanged daily which allowed one less thing to pack. We ate in the main dining rooms two nights where the service was great and we had no trouble walking in More at the time we preferred and getting a table as long as we were willing to sit with other people. The first night we enjoyed the surf-n-turf dinner. The lobster tails were good size Maine lobster tails. In general we thought the portions were quite small, but you can order as many courses and dinners as you like so we did not starve. We ate in Le Bistro one night and were extremely disappointed in our meals. Our last night we ate at Cagney's which was great; the service was spectacular and the meals were top notch.
The sail away parties were a lot of fun. There was always a band and some type of BBQ or taco bar offered. We did not have any trouble finding chairs.
Every night there was a 2 for 1 happy happy in a different bar from 6p-8p so we purchased wine there and brought it to dinner.
We enjoyed many of the shows: comedian, juggler, Newlywed game, etc. But the visibility is so poor in the Stardust theatre unless you get seats at least 30 minutes prior to the shows.
We thought the shore excursions we booked directly through NCL were awesome:
LUCAYAN NATIONAL PARK KAYAK EXPERIENCE in GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND
DISCOVER ATLANTIS & BEACH BREAK in NASSAU
WAVE RUNNER TOUR (SINGLE) in GREAT STIRRUP CAY
We are glad we gave NCL another try since this cruise ended with a very positive experience which we would recommend to others. You can't beat the value. Less
