Having cruised many times on both Carnival and RC, we tried the Sky and were very impressed. Best staff and Main Dining options of any ship we have sailed. Excellent bars and potent drinks. Fun casino and pool parties. Nice cabin (8203 ... Read more

SHIP: Like most people we spoke to on the Cruise, we were there to see Cuba before it becomes "Americanized" and they figure out the "Tourist thing". We travelled with 3 other "Active" 55 + couples and did ... Read more

We chose the Gem because it was based out of NY. We were on the Breakaway last year and decided to try something a bit smaller We had a 2 bedroom suite. A bit dated but loved the room for the two of us to spread out. The itinerary ... Read more

Wanted to get away from the wet NYC weather and hence the week long cruise to Bahamas. Smallish ship (2300 guests) compared to other modern ships (4000+ guests). We had a mini suite with balcony on the 11th floor. Great housekeeping, ... Read more

I got this trip as my 50th birthday present from my husband. It was the first long trip without the kids in 10 years. He booked it through Costco and we got a lot of nice additions to the package like upgraded meals and beverage ... Read more

We chose Norwegian because it was only one of two cruise lines that leave from Manhattan. We wanted a quick seven day get away and wanted to leave from Manhattan where we live. Problems started on day one before we even got under way ... Read more

We got this cruise through our Wyndham ownership. It was the first cruise for both of us, so we were looking forward to it. The process of getting from the pier to the ship was smooth and easy, but once on board we didn't know what to do ... Read more

We chose this cruise because my husband wanted to try out a cruise and I wanted to see Cuba. We loved the cruise, the food was amazing, drinks unlimited, and service was great, with the exception of one rude security guard. We went to the ... Read more

We chose this trip because we wanted to see Cuba before it "changed." We have never cruised with NCL before and never will again. Except for a very few exceptions, the staff were rude and didn't care about the guests. I don't ... Read more

The itinerary for this cruise is perfect. An overnight in Cuba and then a stop at their lovely private island. Being the lst cruise, we expected that there would be some issues with disembarkation, immigration, excursions but there were no ... Read more

We love NCL and this cruise did not disappoint. Embarkation is never fun but we love the advantage of being at the gold level. The embarkation staff were great. We do walk off disembarkation and our only suggestion there is that we ... Read more

First time cruising, had an amazing week. The food was delicious (especially Le Bistro and Cagneys). The drinks were great (especially mudslides) and the bartenders at the Pub and Whiskey Bar are the best. We already planning for another ... Read more

Mini suite 11042 and 11034: I liked a curtain separating the cabin in our mini suite. I loved that there was no upper bed and everyone (4) slept comfortably. The balcony roof is full of pipes, and also comes out because the pool ... Read more

Embark and disembark the easiest Cruise we have taken. NCL Sky ship was small but intimate. Cabins were small but great for a cruise. Service was wonderful. Dining gave you a variety. Port excursion to Beach was great, food wonderful. ... Read more

I really enjoyed my cruise, and I would definitely go again. The NCL Sky is older and smaller, but my room and all the public areas were clean and fresh. We had a good week, and a decent mix of people (old, young, etc.), but very few ... Read more

We have been on 20 cruises on 4 different cruise lines and this ship is one of the worst we have been on. We did not expect it to be the best cruise by any means when we booked it, but we got even less than expected. Getting onboard the ... Read more

Embarkation was quick and simple, disembarkation was disorderly, missing communication, and EXTREMELY long! We had one good meal on board. All other meals were were mediocre at best. The same food was served at most meals and wasn't good. ... Read more

SUMMARY: This was a wkend getaway for me and my sister in law. The embarkation was smooth and hardly any line. The disembarkation was organized as well. There was a line in customs but that has nothing to do with the ship. That is the Port ... Read more

We wanted a weekend cruise for a low stress family vacation where it was warm. This was perfect for me, my husband and my mom-in-law. The staff was wonderful to my mother-in-law, who is nearly 88. They made sure she could embark and ... Read more

Been on this ship twice, the first time 2 years ago, was pretty nice. We made the mistake of not upgrading our room this time. Room was very small, 2-3 pieces of trim falling off. So small I couldn't even open my suitcase all the way, ... Read more

Reviews from other family and friends had told us that this was one of the best cruise ships. And my husband found it to be very nice so much so we are sorry that we did not take advantage of the promotion where you pay $250. and Norwegian ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we could leave out of New York and not waste any vacation time. I only had a week vacation and wanted to spend each day relaxing. We had a balcony room, which was wonderful. Never been away in such a ... Read more
