Norwegian Sky needs more renovation. Cabin was in sad shape. Food had little taste. Buffet was mass quantity of the same food every day. Cuba needs to be seen on a misson not on a tour bus. Tour operator knew the party line, however, the 6 hr. tour is a waste to spend an hour at a cigar/rum store, 2.5+ hours at lunch (waiting for other buses to show up) with bland food and no talent dancers, and an extra stop at a flea market where prices are over rated. Liquor deal was not clear everyone had FREE liquor. They forgot to tell travelers who had the Premium package that traveler had to force the staff to give "Top Shelf" liquor. Talked to the front desk staff and they were willing to give $50 back due to the room issues and tour issues. At the end of the cruise, the transfer transportation only sent one bus, so we waited in the sun for over an hour. The only reason we took this cruise was to use or lose a substantial credit. Wish we had not used the credit. The only way we will go on Norwegian again is if they give a 100% covered trip. Norwegian needs to get their act together!

Not worth going to Cuba. Waste of money.

Cabin Review

Aft-Facing Balcony
Cabin B1 9076
To small and not enough drawer space. Had to climb over the bed to get to the sitting area and balcony. Shower to small. Safe to small. Bathroom needs power other than shaving power.

Room is in need of repair. Closet broken hinges. Paint gauged all over room. Bracket left in wall. Vanity in bathroom chipped.
