Nice Ship, But Not Impressed
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
I don't like the daily "Service Charge" of $12 per person. I think that it gives the crew absolutely NO incentive to please. As far as service goes, there were a few OUTSTANDING crew members. The rest were OK at best. Not very perky and not many smiles. Our cabin steward was just OK. The first night I actually had to ASK for a towel animal!! He made up our bed each day with the same quality that my 9 year old daughter would. Seriously. Not impressed. Room service was good. A little slow at 2:30am, but good.
Casino was fine. Didn't lose. Didn't win. Just had fun on the slots. The Karaoke at the Outrigger Lounge is good. We had a lot of fun there. Dazzles is OK. A little cramped. Music is pretty good and everyone was dancing and having fun. Shows were OK. Pools were sort of small. The adults-only pool was filled with kids. They really need someone to patrol things. The "kids-allowed" pool is right next to the adult pool, so it's not like there was a separate area anyway.
I don't mean to sound negative. My husband and I had a fabulous time because we just have fun wherever we are. But as far as this particular cruise on this particular ship- not so great. It doesn't make me want to cruise NCL again anytime soon. Except maybe the EPIC. But we are headed back to Carnival in October. Again, the SKY is a nice ship. If you want to have fun, you will. I just felt like there wasn't that level of "WOW" that could have been there. Less
