Construction Island: Norwegian Sky Cruise Review by Lafaz
Overall Member Rating
This was my first time to the Bahamas and there were a lot of things that were very disappointing but, since that has nothing to do with the cruise itself, I will leave out my thoughts on Nassau and Freeport and skip straight to Norwegian Cruise Line's "Private Island" or, as we were More calling it, "Construction Island". As soon as you step foot on to this island, it is obvious that they are trying to turn it into a Disney type of resort or something with timeshares and all of that gawdy junk. There was construction equipment galore and, yes, they were working while everybody was on the beach doing their thing. They had a whole stage set up there playing music really loud (probably to cover the sound of all of the construction equipment). I'm no scientist, but I knew right away that we were walking around on manmade sand because it felt just like the sand that you can buy at Home Depot to build a kid's sandbox (if not, maybe worse). It was nothing like the beautiful smooth coral sand that was at Freeport. It would have been nice if they had mentioned this construction before we booked this cruise. Less
Room was easy to get to, decent size, clean.
