This was a short break after New Year as it was too soon to fly home to UK & flights were still expensive. So an all inc cruise to Bahamas on Sky was a no brainer! We were worried there would be heaps of drunken party animals, but this ... Read more

Restaurants Frequented : Tropicana, Taste, Savour, O'Sheehan's accommodated food allergies by ordering supper in advance. The hotel manager Erroll sent us something to our cabin everyday - canapés, fruit platter and cheese platters ... Read more

The itinerary and timing of this cruise were ideal but I regretted booking it. there were up charges for everything; forty-five dollars for a six-pack of water in the cabin, menu items in the inclusive dinning rooms with additional charges ... Read more

I read all the reviews beforehand and I went looking to find something wrong and could not. I arrived at the Port at 11:50 am. I dropped my stuff off in my room at 1230. Embarkation for me was very efficient. Overall, the food ... Read more

This was my first NCL cruise and my last. Having about 100 cruise days on other lines, NCL left me less than impressed. I was traveling with extended family which are NCL cruisers, which had not been on Getaway before. They said this ... Read more

Being a mega ship, the Getaway has a multitude of activities and attractions to keep passengers busy, but you can never get away from the crowds. People had to essentially climb over each other to snag a deck chair or a table at the ... Read more

We went on this cruise to celebrate the 90th birthday of our friend. There were 18 in our group. Overall the ship was ok but we have been on cleaner ships. The public bathrooms could have been kept cleaner. If you wanted to get lounge ... Read more

We cruised with NCL previously and enjoyed it. Starting with the check in which was very fast. Overall the service was very good. As for dinning, we loved the specialty restaurants, specially Cagney's.The food in the regular dinning was ... Read more

It seemed at every turn, this cruise was perfect. The staff- from the Hotel Director, Sean and his Assistant Errol, to our cabin steward, Christopher- were on top of everything. We had a Mini-Suite w/ Balcony- our room was always clean and ... Read more

Just a three day get away for New Years Eve. The ship is old, tired and very dirty. The rooms tiny (we had a mini suite) NOT. Cabin Attendant good. The quality of soap and shampoo so poor we went to store and bought our own. The service ... Read more

With the Sky now just doing 4 and 3 day Bahamas cruises - with no days at sea, maybe most have their expectations set going in. I knew the age of the ship and that this would just be a quick weekend getaway - but I still left feeling like ... Read more

We, and 6 other couples, went to celebrate New Years in a different way. We have cruised many times, on Norwegian and other lines, and know what to expect. Our first cabin was 8029, which is likely the worst cabin on the ship. It ... Read more

We originally chose the cruise because it went to the ports we wanted to see and we were able to get it for a pretty cheap price. This was my first NCL cruise and liked the fact that you could do things when you wanted and not on a ... Read more

Pros: Embarkation the best, lunch then cabin was ready. Disembark a little chaotic as we left at 9. Advice leave earlier to avoid lines. Excellent ports of call. Did all our own research on ports and tours and was not disappointed in ... Read more

We choose this cruise because it was on sale and wanted to visit some new locations, such as the Panama Canal and Cartegena, Colombia. Went with a group of family members and friends between the ages of 30 - 70 and there seemed to be ... Read more

We like small cruise ships, about 2500 passengers. The food at the dinning room was great and so the food in all the specialty restaurants. The buffet, indoor and on the pool deck, was ok, just ok. Best is to eat the dinning room, two ... Read more

We have sailed 7 times, from low budget (Imperial Majesty/Bahamas Celebration) to Carnival, nothing higher and we should learn that you get what you pay for. We got a good deal on this cruise, so we took it, but it was just not very ... Read more

We normally cruse with Princess or Royal Caribbean so my experience is relative to what I am accustomed to. We joined this cruise because we were joining a group trip and had no choice in the matter. Their group services organization was ... Read more

We've cruised NCL since 1999. The food has steadily gone downhill with each cruise. This one was the worst yet. Worst quality, worst variety. Overcooked meat to the point of being dried out. Too much repetition of the menus. NCL is cutting ... Read more

This was my sixth cruise but my first on Norwegian. It will probably be my last on Norwegian. In contrast to my experiences on both Celebrity and Holland-American cruise lines, the buffet was very small, with few choices other than ... Read more

This was our family's 1st cruise (total of 5 of us) and we were directed by our travel agent that the Sky was a good 1st cruise option. We have 3 children 23, 19, and 15. We had 2 interior staterooms which turned out to be great. ... Read more

Chose this cruise based on ports of call (st. thomas/tortola/bahamas) and positive impression with NCL cruises. NCL has declined significantly in the past 8 years. We have been on four different ships. 1. Service, crew seems overwhelmed. ... Read more
