Norwegian Sky Cruise Review by atavistic8
- Sail Date: November 2011
- Destination: Bahamas
- Cabin Type: Penthouse with Large Balcony
Once we got met our Conceirge (Omar) and Butler (Naveen), we started our cruise in good fashion. They left champaign in the room and treats every night. The room was very large considering the size of most rooms on the cruise. Our room had a large balcony with 2 regular chairs and 2 layout chairs with 2 tables. One day we asked the butler to bring our breakfast from cagneys onto our balcony for us. It was fabulous!!! Our bathroom was also bigger than normal. It had a jacuzzi tub with jets and a glass shower instead of the normal small shower with shower curtain. The sink had granite or corian counter tops. There was a smaller room that had beds similar to bunk beds. I assume this was for kids traveling with you. Other differences I noticed from the normal rooms was the flat screen television, refrigerator with drinks, large mirror over the bed, 3 closets, and plenty of space. Also, suite guests get invited to a special cocktail reception and meet/take pictures with the Captain and other department heads. Drinks were free there!!!
The ports were normal. I had been to the bahamas several times. We did the Atlantis Aquaadventure, which allowed us to use the water park. That was fun. We got to go on the lazy river that turns into rapids at certain parts. That's very fun. When we went to the private island, we could only stay 2 hours due to the sea getting bad. It was nice and they had plenty of seats. It was good for relaxing for those 2 hours.
The food on the ship is very tasty. We ate at Cagneys during their dinner steakhouse menu. That was tasty. However, my boyfriend thought the Italian restaurant was the shocking surprise. That food was delicious. We also ate in Longhorns sports bar. The buffalo wings were good there and it was nice to be able to watch the nfl games on monday and thursday nights.
We went to the gym every morning. There were plenty of machines and they all have televisions attached. My boyfriend took part in a personal training session and they trainer gave him a program to take home with him.
Overall, it was a great cruise. We are ready to book our next suite next year! Freestyle dining is the way to go!!
