Good first cruise

Sail Date: February 2012
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Miami
We had a good first cruise on the sky last week. The stateroom was surprisingly roomy and the beds were very comfortable. Our 6' son found the fold down bed comfortable too.

The ship and cabin were very clean. Hand sanitizer dispensers were at all dining areas and I noticed on CDC that Norwegian had a low overall rate of shipboard illness. Staff overall was very friendly. Embarking on the ship was really easy and disembarking was easy too.

The seas were too rough to go to the private island, but I appreciated the captain putting safety first.

The main area for improvement was the food. The buffet was good for breakfast with omelet and waffle station, but mediocre the rest of the time. Sail away cook out was disappointing with stale hamburger buns and ran out of Cole slaw. We had much better luck with the main restaurants, especially Crossings. Many of the desserts were good and we loved the coffee. Room service was quick and had good offerings, though the More pizza - not so much

There were definitely party spots on board, but also many quieter spots to relax.

The entertainment was good.

We would go again!

We would do it again! Less

Cabin review: O19207 Family Oceanview Picture Window

Quiet, very comfy beds, including pull Down. Big window. More room than we expected. Room in two closets and under bed for storage. Not too far from elevators, so not far to dining or pool.

Port and Shore Excursions

Immediately off the ship is very touristy. We took taxi tour of island. Much of it quite commercial. We did day pass at Wyndham. Would choose Sheraton next time. The beaches at these resorts were pretty narrow and not beautiful beaches, but had chairs, easy access to food, drink and bathrooms. Lunch buffet at wyndham was very good.Likely would choose to take boat tour around island or go to blue lagoon next time. We were on Sunday when many things were closed or closing early. Our taxi drivers were friendly and honest.
