Norwegian Sky Cruise Review by luvitwhencruisin

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2008
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony

The Norwegian Sky was a gem. The atmosphere from the get go was relaxed and the service was very adequate for the ship. The embarkation was easy, the early afternoon of our entry on to the ship was very beautiful. The colors on the ship are fun and the welcome by the staff was very pleasant. The rooms may be a little small but they are fine for the 4 days and the balcony was definitely a must. The ports are all OK. We are not cruisers who run off the ship each stop so if the post looks inviting we may get off. But Freeport is far from attractive as you are in a very industrial port. Interesting to watch the work going on, but not luxurious by any means. Stirrup Cay was a blast. You do need to get there early as the main beach area does get crowded... but there are plenty of individual areas to hang out. The buffet on the island was great. The food on board was good everywhere. We ate at the Palace, The Crossings, Cagney's, Le Bistro and Adagio. Adagio was our least favorite ..but not bad in any way... just not our favorite. The hot tubs are small... you really can not fit more than three adults in them at a time. Oh yeah and when the signs say adults only, the crew does need to follow through on the policy. One afternoon was a bit much with young children running and splashing and screaming.... we just moved.. but it was annoying. Leaving the ship was easy and we were back in time for a great big snow storm here in the Northeast. In general, the Sky is a great time and for the price it was a lot of fun and very economical. Oh yeah, the Outrigger Lounge was a great oasis for big band music and great views of the sunset. I wish we were there again.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 0046

Small cabin, little drawer space, bathroom is tiny as is shower.....but all are adequate. Hallway was quiet, balcony was clean and enjoyable.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Did not get off for this port as it was very appealing at the pier. So we decided to enjoy the quiet on board the ship.


We ventured off the ship here to do a little shopping. However, you are immediately met by many local vendors looking to make a living. A simple no thank you worked... but it was overload when you step on to the streets outside the port. Lots of shopping and a we had a good time hanging at the local coffee shop.
