Nice Bahama Cruise

Norwegian Sky Cruise Review by scarkev

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Inside

We chose this cruise because it fit a tight schedule perfectly. We "Lyfted" from the airport for less than $20 when Norwegian wanted over $60 for 2 people. Once we arrived at the port boarding was amazingly simple, we just zoomed right in. We were allowed to go to our cabin at 14:00 and our bags were right there when we got off the elevator on our deck.

We had one minor problem with a light in the restroom of our cabin but we called guest services and an engineer knocked on the door in five minutes. We left for dinner and when we returned the problem was solved. Very efficient.

The ship was very nice and staff was very gracious. The food was awesome and the entertainment great. We enjoyed the entire ship more than we really intended because we didn't get to go to two of the four ports of call. Granted, it was hurricane season and we knew before we sailed Freeport had too much damage, but we were really looking forward to the Great Stirrup Cay port since it is owned by Norwegian. But, with the looming tropical storm building, it was determined to be too dangerous to travel in that direction.

Our less than stellar review has nothing to do with the ship but we question whether we made the proper choice to sail at this time of year...

Cabin Review

Cabin IF 8353

Cabin was very small for two people. We chose it because we don't spend any more time than necessary in the cabin but will probably upgrade next time.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


We just went straight from the airport to the ship port.

Key West

We just walked around the island. We had been there before and visited some of our favorite spots.


Did not make this port due to the hurricane damage.


We just walked around the port area but got tired of all the taxi drivers trying to hawk us into a cab for a tour. Didn't really feel comfortable so after a couple of hours we headed back to the boat.

Great Stirrup Cay

We didn't get to this port because another tropical storm was coming and the decision was made instead to float around for another day
