My husband and I went to the Bahamas on a 4 night cruise with Norwegian Sky. It was our first cruise. We arrive at the port at 3:00p.m. Embarkation was a breeze we just walk right through the line no one was there. We were very surprised there was no long lines after reading all those reviews. Anyway we went into ship greeted with two glasses of champagne with a smile nice touch. The ship is beautiful inside smells very good and were very clean. Everywhere had sanitizer for your hands.
We took oceanview cabin, we were on the night floor, look like that entire floor have cabins. Our room was o.k a bit too small,very clean, had a mini bar, closet sofa chair,a dresser and mirror. They put ice everyday in your ice bucket with clean glasses. The bed was very comfortable to sleep on. After reading all the bad reviews about the cabin we went and check everything to make sure everything was working good. Everything works great.They clean your cabin everyday and put back fresh towels in. The staff is always pleasant and friendly. Entertainment; We will go every night to the comedian Tim K.he is very funny we laugh so much. The dancers and singers were excellent they are full of so much energy. Everynight there is singing and dancing on pool deck we really enjoyed it.
Food; We ate most of our meals at the buffets the food is very good there so much different things lots of desserts and fresh fruits every day.We went only two nights to crossings in the main dinning for dinner,the food was very good also. The waitress are very pleasant there.The drinks was pretty good .
Day 1 was grand bahama island we couldn't get there because of the weather Ike was around. But was very entertained at sea that day.
Day 2 Nassau not much to do there we walked on the straw market then took a small boat across to atlantis where there is a huge casino and beautiful hotels there.We didn't take any of shore excursions.
Day 3 went to great stirrup cay island,it's a private island with a huge beach it's very beautiful there.We had a great time there.Also they had a great Bar B Que for everyone.
Disembarkation was a breeze again we walked straight through customs since we had a 11:10 a.m flight coming back home we try to get out as soon as possible we took the express walk off where you take your luggage with you.We had a wonderful time on the NCL SKY It was a surprise.
