Norwegian Sky Cruise Review by brianmatthie
- Sail Date: January 2018
- Destination: Bahamas
- Cabin Type: Penthouse with Large Balcony
We needed to fit a cruise in between our booked flight times and this one fit. We booked a suite which was one of 8 at the front of the ship. our balcony was nearly 20 feet wide. Plenty of room in the cabin. Not much to see on the TV, but we had movies delivered to us twice. Each day something surprising was delivered to us(cookies, fruit, desserts, water,flowers, champagne, cheese and crackers). I guess because we booked a suite. We felt really spoiled. The food was exceptional as we enjoyed every single meal. We did not eat at the buffet. The house wine was fine. There wasn't a whole lot to do on the ship but there were shows and a casino. Every night we arrived back at our room happy! The pools were very small. The island which they own and are developing was ok but I will not be returning there. The snorkeling wasn't all that great and there are much better beaches. Many will like that place but it just wasn't for us. Our concierge person(John) was exceptional as was our butler(Made). They took care of any and all of our requests. One night my wife was having a particularly tough time walking so we requested assistance. They brought us a wheelchair in less than 5 minutes and delivered her to our destination on the ship. Amazing!! A big "Thank You" to Rowena who made sure we were well fed at Cagney's and who is so friendly. All of the staff were nice to us and did a great job. I can't think of one thing to complain about. All in all we enjoyed the cruise. My wife liked it that the ship was small and the required walking was minimized. We just found that there was not a lot to do on the ship. The entertainment wasn't bad. The idea of charging so much to get drinking water is getting a bit ridiculous. We were treated very nicely though and since the food was so good, we would strongly recommend this ship.
brianmatthie’s Full Rating Summary
Beautiful front of the ship views from a huge balcony. Balcony had 2 beach lounge chairs to lay on and two more chairs for sitting and a table. Room for 8 comfortably. In room: Very large bed, good TV, table, chairs, desk space, make-up area for the lady and couch. Other little side room had a huge closet and a set of bunkbeds(which adults could have slept in). That little room had its own small TV and a porthole looking out onto the balcony. Large fridge. The bathroom was inclusive of a large shower stall and a separate jacuzzi tub. All sorts of drawers and cupboards and a nice closet in the room as well. Never noisy. Bit of an extra bounce as it is right at the front of the ship, but even on the roughest night it was okay.
