Got us hooked!

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Miami

We took our first ever cruise in March 2011 on the Norweigan Sky and loved it. We travelled with a 6 month old baby and all the staff were so helpful and friendly, they made it really easy for us. The only negative point is that we had to pay for her to board the ship but she was not allowed to use any of the pools as she is still in nappies, and did not eat any of the food as she is not yet weaned!

Our room was at the back of the ship and had a balcony. The view of the sunset leaving Miami was amazing and I would definatly have a cabin at the back again.

The excursions were expensive, we did the semi submersible in Nassau which cost $140 and hired a sunbed canopy and 1 snorkel set on Great Stirrup Cay which cost $60! A charge is levied to you for tips per day per person on top of anything you may give, so this works out expensive to.

The food was amazing, we expected it all to be buffet style but you could order iff the menu in 2 of the included More restaurants in the evening. I had lobster the first night! Very impressed.

Drinks were no more expensive that at a nice restaurant.

Would definatly cruise with them again but will wait until my daughter is old enough to use the facilities we have paid for! Less

Cabin review: Norwegian Sky 9276

Great cabin, had a curtain we could close to help baby sleep in travel cot. Not much room left when travel cot up but expected this. Balcony big and offered great views. Very quite room, a little noise from the hallway but as we were at the end of the ship found not many people passed by.

Port and Shore Excursions


(5.5)
Excellent port parking expensive $60 for 3 nights, but no other option. Got both on and off the boat quickly and stress free.

Port right in the centre of Nassau so not much walking needed, 10/15 min walk from boat to port though as we were on the furthest mooring. Long queues but they soon go down.
