Norwegian Sky Cruise Review by jvtmkt
- Sail Date: April 2019
- Destination: Cuba
This was a Monday to Friday cruise to Havana.
I was prepared not to like the cruise or the line but everything was great.
We booked at the last minute and did not get to pick our stateroom but we had an ocean view room on level 4. It was the smallest room and the lowest level we ever had on a cruise but it was fine. Lots of storage, typical small bathroom but very nice and CLEAN.
The ship was very well kept, cleanliness was evident. Food was good, the speciality resturarant we tried was the Italian one and it was excellent.
Not much to choose from for evening shows but we were there for the relaxation and mostly to see Havana.
Our stop in Havana was only one day but it was just wonderful.
Yes, lots of the city was in disrepair. The people are poor for the most part.
We had the most delightful tour I have ever been on. BLEXIE tours.
This was a tour in an old car. Ours was a 57 Chevy. Our Driver Johnny and our Tour Guide, Laura Garcia, were great. Laura gave us a real education on the History of Cuba, the cuban world view, the people, etc. Loved every minute of it. Learned so much.
The tour lasted from 10-4 and was just full of sights and sounds. We opted for the driving tour with very little walking and saw so much of the city. The , the bad, the ugly.
Gained such an appreciation for what Cuba is really like.
We went to lunch in an out of the way place in a nice neighborhood. Try this place if you get a chance, BUENAVENTURA lovely meal , outside dinning. Very local.
Highly reccomend the cruise and the Tour. Do your self a favor and book this private tour. Two people plus a driver and a tour guide. Very reasonable pricing. Personal attention.
Can't say enough about how great it wasl
