Went with friends and enjoyed the Cuba experience after many years of passing by the Island. Tropicana Cabaret and Havana Tour are a must. It was quick getting on and super quick off the ship. Small Ship and a little outdated. Messaging ... Read more

We had a travel agent, but found out more information on our own. We flew into Miami a few days early to dive in the keys so the airport transfers that were arranged by our agent weren't needed. She wasn't clear as to "how" we ... Read more

We choose this cruise because it was our first cruise experience and we wanted to "get our feet wet" with a short one. The fact that it was to Cuba convinced us to try one. Voyage was very calm, unlimited drinks a plus! ... Read more

I spent several months planning for this trip and overall I made the best of it. I spent quality time with my family and that was more important than the ship and surroundings. But since I was asked for my opinion, i give it. First I'll ... Read more

I am not one for those huge mega ships. The Jewel was perfect, sailed on it twice! The Sky was definitely much smaller, a lot of pros to it, along with a lot of cons. PROS: Alcoholic beverages were included. Lots of elevators, and ... Read more

Over all good cruise. I was skeptical about the all inclusive alcohol but there were no issues with drunk people. Drinks per day were not counted, no cards required. Boarding was delayed by several hours and we were herded aboard like ... Read more

We stayed in the Aft Penthouse Suite Room 9275. This category gave us VIP status. My husband and I flew down the night before and stayed in the Hampton Inn at Fort Lauderdale Airport. Very nice room, reasonably priced and a great free ... Read more

We took our children and grandchildren on this cruise to get a glimpse of Havana. The ship itself was very nice despite reading some horror stories on line. It was clean, beds were comfortable, lots of activities throughout the cruise ... Read more

NCL runs a very efficient operation from start to finish. We interacted with highly trained staff with positive attitudes who we found to always be willing to go the extra mile to help. It was our first cruise which we took mostly because ... Read more

Let's start with the positives. The staff, from the agents ashore to the room stewards to the dining room staff were friendly and helpful. They were always smiling and ready to fill any need. Frequently they would anticipate need and ask ... Read more

In a nutshell, this cruise has got it down to a science, it's as easy as checking into a hotel for a great long weekend. We flew into Ft. Lauderdale the night before sailing, stayed at an airport hotel and then the next morning took MJS ... Read more

Chose this cruise for the 2 day stop in Havana. Must have been a beautiful place at one time. 40% of structures unsalvageable , 2 collapse each day . 60+ years of communism has taken its toll on a onetime gem. Average wage $18-25 per ... Read more

This was my second cruise on The Sky. This trip was a 360. I brought my family on this cruise to Cuba and had high expectations. Embarkation was a disaster, there was a line snaked a mile long. Latitude members were shuffled to a ... Read more

I decided to head to Havana, Cuba to experience a place that few Americans have had the opportunity to see since the early 60's. We departed Miami, Florida on the Norwegian Sky and headed for Havana, Cuba. The ship was in great shape ... Read more

Background: My family loves to cruise and have been on many cruises on many cruise lines. We find it is a great way for multigenerational trips with far-flung family as it allows everyone to go at their own pace and gives some breathing ... Read more

A great way to see Havana. One of the few cruises stopping for 2 days. Really a must to get a good feel for Havana. NCL was fine. Cabin very small -we almost always have a couch; this one had room for just one chair (rather worn). ... Read more

We chose this cruise to jump at the opportunity to spend two days in Havana. A bit nervous about going to the "forbidden island" but it was easy-peasy thanks to NCL. They are the largest ship sailing there--and you get two full ... Read more

We wanted to take our son to see Cuba. It was everything we had hoped and more. I had read all the reviews before we sailed so we had an idea of what to expect. We took one NCL excursion and then took a local carriage ride around the ... Read more

The main reason I picked the cruise was that by booking a suite, we will be Platinum Latitude Rewards on our Nov 2017 Panama Canal cruise. Not sure why it is important to me but it is, so I did some checking to see if we could make the ... Read more

The cruise was our honeymoon. We had both always wanted to take a cruise, but were not sure about which cruise line to choose, what destinations to select, etc. Our son had been on several cruises, all with Norwegian, and so he ... Read more
