  3. Norwegian Sky
My partner and I decided to go on a 4 day Bahamian Norwegian Sky Cruise. It was a first time experience for both of us experiencing Norwegian, and I honestly would give it 3 out of 5 stars. Rooms: We stayed in stateroom #4015. DO NOT PICK THIS ROOM (if you are on Norwegian Sky and like to sleep). There is a disturbingly loud mechanical croaking noise that occurred constantly throughout the night underneath us. I am guessing, it was a part of the ship that was making the noise. Apart from the noise, the room itself was not bad. The bathrooms are a little tight, but it's expected. WARNING: The water temperature of the shower gets extremely hot, really fast. (Be careful). The cleanliness of the room was up to par, and we had daily cleaning services by very helpful staff. Staff: Although our room had noise disturbances, the staff was nothing more than accommodating to our situation. From the moment we voiced our concern, the Guest Services Staff was quick to respond and made the proper accommodations/adjustments necessary. BIG SHOUT OUT TO Alyssa (Guest Services) who was phenomenal, and Frankie (Head Security) who was helpful. Food/Drinks: There is an array of places to have food. It was all pretty tasty and presentable. The only downside was that there are no microwaves in the room, so if you take food to go, you will not be able to heat it up, unless you walk all the way back to the main dining area. UNLIMITED DRINK PACKAGE was a must! It made the experience more enjoyable to not have to keep track of your spending on alcoholic beverages. SPECIALTY DINING is something that isn't necessary, but if you would like a change of scenery than La Cucina was decent and staff friendly. Also "The Palace" and "Crossing" are nice places to dine. Entertainment: Overall was enjoyable. We tried a variety of activities such as Pool Parties, Trivia/Game Shows, Comedy and more. Definitely take advantage of them. Overall, the experience was nice but could have gone a bit smoother in certain areas.

Fairly Decent....but the staff YES!
