Norwegian Sky Cruise Review by Jimmy Gimbels
- Sail Date: December 2012
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Aft-Facing Penthouse with Large Balcony
One more thing about the suite...the bed has a new pillow top mattress. Too bad the top layer in the new trendy foam. Very comfortable but but hot. That foam just absorbs body heat and never cools off. I closed the door to the bedroom and cranked up the AC to keep from being roasted in the bed.
Suite passengers have breakfast and lunch in private dining room...which is a blessing after seeing the long lines for all the restaurants.
As for the up-charge rooms:
Italian - never raised above the level of Olive Garden. Service was slow and staff was uninterested in delivery top notch service. Someone buy these people a salad spinner. Salads were swimming in a pool of water. Lifeless Ceasar salad dressing. Uninteresting bread basket. Desserts looked great but had little or no taste. The decor says nothing about "Italian."
Steak: Food again fails to raise above "Outback Steakhouse." Wait staff was simply disorganized. Kitchen waqs very slow.
Dinner took over two hours. Avoid this place.French: Ah they got it right. Great wait staff. Great food.
Weekend cruise had a strange mix of people. First class crowd it ain't. Drunk, rude with no manners. What ever happened to "please" and "thank you"?
Sky was spic and span throughout. I prefer this size of ship compared to the mega ships. Carpet beginning to show age. Main stage shows are horrid.

NassauDirty. Foul smelling. Just a strange combination of upscale shops and junk stores.The whole place looks to be rusting and rotting away. This is my least favorite port.View All 5,275 Nassau Cruise Port Reviews
