3-Day Bahamas Cruise (Norwegian Sky)
"On the first and last nights we chose to eat at the French Le Bistro Restaurant, which is located on Deck 5 and accessed via a stairway from Deck 6 located on the starboard side between the Bliss Lounge and Sugarcane Bar.) Bliss Lounge is located mid-ship on Deck 6 and serves as the main entertainment area outside of Star Dust Theater...."Read More

Staff was awful

This was my first time cruising, and while the ship and destinations were beautiful. The customer service was severely lacking. Some staff were extremely nice, while the other 50% or more were unwilling to help clarify questions and assist me with issues that occurred when our shore excursion was cancelled as well as when the walkie talkies we brought onboard were confiscated when boarding. ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I just got back Friday from my first cruise ever. I had a great time. The food was excellent and the staff was spectacular. I was very pleased at how organized and professional things were handled. I have just one request, as a dj I understand that you want the party to jump all night, but mature couples sometimes like to slow dance with their partners. Maybe a nice slow dance night poolside? I’m ...

3-Day Bahamas Cruise (Norwegian Sky)

Prior to COVID outbreak, my wife and I have taken this 3-day (weekend) cruise on the Norwegian Sky as a quick getaway from work stress. The Norwegian Sky was refurbished in 2019 and is in immaculate condition. While the Sky does not have the bells and whistles on the larger NCL vessels, it was prefect for a quick getaway. In general, we find the Sail for Free Promotion, where you get ...

I chose this cruise for a weekend girls trip. This would be my fifth time on the Norwegian Sky sailing to Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay. Unfortunately, this cruise isn't what it used to be. In the past, they had performances with dancing and singing. Now it's just a few small performances in bars, no dancers. We had to skip the private island because of weather. This is a tender port, so book a ...

My Least Favorite Experience with NCL

Like many people we had a ton of cruise credits from a cancelled cruise due to COVID shutting down the cruise lines. We decided that this 9 day cruise would be a good one since there were a few ports we had never visited before. I've been on the NCL Star and figured that the Sky would be a similar small ship experience. We booked two rooms a balcony for my husband and I and an interior across ...

After 4 years of waiting, 3 cancellations, and passing the COVID test the day we flew into Miami, we finally were able to embark on the Norwegian Sky at the end of May 2022. Embarkation (5 stars) – We used the new NCL Miami terminal. The new facility is very nice and a great first impression. Embarkation was smooth, quick and the staff were very professional. Ship (3 stars) – The ship was ...

My husband, two friends and myself sailed on the Sky and was very apprehensive due to some of things we'd read about cruising since the pandemic. We'd even looked at cancelling. We need not have worried apart from testing to fly to Miami and then another test before getting board ship, as we'd spend 3 days in Miami before hand, we didn't have to test again. The ship was at half capacity and the ...

We chose this cruise in order to spend our anniversary in Nassau, where we originally got married 15 years ago. We'd taken a few Norwegian cruises in the past and found them all to be great experiences. Unfortunately, Norwegian has gone downhill since the last time we cruised with them. The only improvement noted was in the processes for embarking/disembarking; both were much more efficient. The ...

Worst experience of 3 with NCL

Negatives: Spring break cruise, my MISTAKE. Screaming, drinking, banging on doors in the middle of the night, singing " coronavirus in the hallways" at 3am. Watched a couple of spring breakers who coughed without covering mouth and/or putting head into sleeve or anything more than one time, tried to avoid them as much as possible. Lesson learned! The balcony staterooms have been ...

I have sailed with many other cruise lines and even NCL prior to this multiple times. The experience back then was a great experience. It appears to me that NCL has made some changes not for the good over time. The service was horrible, people unfriendly, no servers on the pool deck, hour waits to get a drink, embarkation was more than painful, etc. This was a complete waste of hard earned ...
