We live in Florida and were looking for a quick weekend getaway. We're pretty loyal Royal Caribbean cruisers (Platinum) and we had been on the Liberty (same layout as Mariner) so we knew we liked the ship style. We got this cruise at a decent price and didn't have huge expectations for a three night cruise, but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food in the dining room and the friendly crew and excellent service all over the ship. Embarkation was so easy. We left out of Terminal A and we drove there from home. Plenty of parking and it would have been very convenient to drop off luggage (we didn't). Arrived at about 11:45 and basically walked right into the terminal and on to the ship. We had done online check-in so all we had to do was show the Set Sail passes on the phone and get pictures taken. There were no lines and no waiting. Once on the ship we went to Excursions to pick out our Coco Cay bungalow (has reserved online previously). No lines there either. Then we went in search of food. The Windjammer (beautifully renovated by the way) was busy but not packed and we found a table right away. Food was decent and there was lots of variety. Standard Windjammer, but the quality seemed higher than on the Liberty a few years ago. While we were in the Windjammer they announced rooms were open so we went down to our cabin. We originally had booked a balcony guarantee but before we were assigned a cabin there was a price drop. I called my TA and she was able to get us upgraded to a spacious balcony cabin midship on deck 9. Although the cabin hadn't been completely redone it had been "freshened" with new carpet, drapes and some wallpaper behind the lights next to the bed. It was larger than I expected with about 2 feet of space between the end of the bed and the wall and a full size sofa. Bathroom and closet were standard. It was clean (although there was a stain on the couch) but my complaint was our cabin had a metallic smell that I found annoying and I didn't smell anywhere else in the ship. It may have been some kind of disinfectant but it wasn't bad enough to complain about. Our stateroom attendant Kundo was the best I have had in a long time. He knew our names, greeted us warmly each time. and kept our room immaculate. Our last cruise was on Holland America where we had terrible stateroom service, but this time the cabin was done immediately after we left in the morning and when we went to dinner in the evening. My only complaint about the balcony cabin was every single time we were out there trying to relax someone was smoking on a nearby balcony. It wasn't just one cabin - all around us were smokers. Obviously the no smoking on balconies is ignored and no one enforces it. It was very disappointing - since the casino is a huge indoor smoking area and the whole port side of the pool area was one big smoking party. Not like there is no where to go. The ship was full of large parties (families, birthdays, bachelor and bachelorette parties) all doing a lot of drinking and having a good time, but it was not an issue - there was always a quiet place to go so the ship didn't seem that crowded. Because this was a weekend cruise and relatively inexpensive there seemed to be a lot of first-time cruisers and a lot of locals. We probably heard more Spanish than English spoken on the cruise and announcements were done in both English and Spanish. We really liked the decor of the ship and it seemed in pretty good shape, but we did notice the carpets around the elevators were stained and the day of the week inserts in the elevators were literally threadbare. It did not seem like maintenance was a high priority. We had dinner in the dining room the first night and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the excellent service. Our waiter, Rogelio and assistant Jennifer were top notch. Definitely a step up from our last few cruises. The dining room has been refreshed and looks modern and is very attractive. The food was very good - also a step up from past RC cruises. Second day was Coco Cay. Tendering was a nightmare - worse than any tendering on any cruise we have experienced. The bungalow does not get you priority tendering and there seemed to be a lack of organization and too few crew members. Because there was no one directing where to go people were trying to cut into the line as they came off the elevators. Then we were delayed by the crew debating whether or not to put a pallet of water on one of the tenders. Over an hour later we finally made it to the island. It is REALLY under construction. Right now there is only a small portion of the island that is usable. Construction didn't bother us but was very visible. The bungalow/beach bed/clamshell area is at the far end of the island from the tender area and we were driven by golf cart to the area. The concierge gave us wrist bands and they do patrol the area to make sure everyone belongs there. The bungalow was very nice - comfortable sectional and a coffee table and the canvas curtains were great in blocking the sun. They have you pre-order lunch and it was ok - nothing special. It would have been a long walk to the buffet or I think they will shuttle you there if you prefer. No one ever came to ask us if we wanted drinks but the bar is very close and I did see drinks being delivered to some bungalows. It was a very relaxing experience for us and I would do it again. The water is awful - weedy and shallow a long way out. The sand is very uneven so it's difficult to walk all the way out to the sandbar. Not an area for snorkeling. We had our second dinner at Jamie's Italian. It was awful. The service was decent and I think if you stuck with the things they tell you are good then maybe it would have been ok, but frankly I would say don't waste your money. For appetizers we shared the "famous" plank, I had calamari, my companion had the crab and avocado bruschetta. The plank had a slice each of several cured meats, some olives and pickled peppers, one small ball each of burrata (it wasn't really burrata - it wasn't creamy enough) and one small cracker with a tiny slice of parmesan and a dollop of pepper jelly. And the stupid rainbow slaw, which is nothing except cole slaw (Italian? really?). Anyway the bruschetta was good and the calamari was ok. The entrees - chicken with a mushroom sauce and the crab spaghetti were both not just bad, but awful. I have never returned a dish because I didn't like it but I seriously considered doing it. No excuse for gummy, overcooked pasta at an Italian restaurant and the sauce had only a hint of crab - and no other real flavor. The chicken had been cooked under a brick and was all bones and not meat. They redeemed themselves with the lemon meringue cheesecake - fabulous - but my raspberry pavlova had a few raspberries on top and mysterious blue something on the inside. A true waste of money for the dinner. We ate breakfast in the MDR one time - same food as elsewhere on the ship but service was good. The Promenade cafe was packed all the time. Never had the pizza but the sandwiches were good and you can get fruit and desserts. I was disappointed no salads were available there. The pub and Playmakers never seemed very crowded and the Viking Crown and Star lounge were empty during the day. Ate lunch at Johnny Rockets one day (now an $11.50 upcharge) and the food was decent. The next day was Nassau. Been there, done that so we just walked up and down Bay Street and got back on the ship. Had a relaxing day (good spa treatment and relaxation in the Solarium). We had dinner in the Windjammer - food was good (most tender roast beef I have ever had), lots of variety, and lots of friendly servers. Disembarkation was amazing. We has self disembarkation so were supposed to leave between 6:30 and 7:15. Walked out of our cabin and 7:15, elevator down to 4, no line, walked off the ship and then a long way through the terminal to the Customs face recognition terminals. What a great improvement! No customs forms, no lines, nothing! Activities - we found there wasn't a whole lot going on around the ship compared to longer cruises. We went to trivia a few times but that was about it. We saw the ice show (well done and fun) the first night, went to the production show (awful) the second night and went to bed early the third night so we missed the feature show (a semi-finalist from America's Got Talent). Never saw the comedian. The pianist in the Schooner bar was good, Boleros was packed all the time, and the group that played in the Promenade was really talented. Overall it was a short cruise that met expectations in most ways but was memorable because of the crew and the above average food in the non-payment dining areas. Read Less

We just got off the 3 day Liberty, and had a great time. DH and I booked this because I wanted a getaway for my birthday and after pricing a few places in FL, we decided that cruising was as cheaper or cheaper than getting a nice beach condo, eating out, and doing something special for entertainment. We live in Central FL, so it's easy for us to book last minute. I love the relaxed feel of a cruise. It's so nice to unplug from social media, the news, and work. Hubby and I spent a lot of time relaxing with a good book on Serenity Deck. We also enjoyed chatting with fellow cruisers in the hot tubs on Serenity and at dinner. We got great exercise walking around the ship and climbing stairs. We got to Port Canaveral at 11:10 for our 12:30 boarding appointment. We were hoping we might get on a little early. There was no line at all and we walked right in. We were on the Lido deck eating lunch shortly after 11:30. That was a nice surprise and a great way to start our weekend! Our first day for lunch we had Blue Iguana. I didn't want the tortilla shell, so they put the beans, rice, chicken, and pico de gallo on a plate, and I got tomatoes, crema fresca, and limes from the salsa bar. So, so good! By the way, the next day for breakfast, I got mexican style scrambled eggs from Blue Iguana. There was no line, and the eggs were delicious! Again, I didn't want a tortilla, so they just put it on a plate for me. Lunch the next day was a yummy Guy's burger. No bun, even though the server teased me, "no bun, no fun!" I put plenty of bacon and tomato on it, which made it fun for me. We always indulged in desserts from the buffet. Later in the afternoon, we had ice cream with a couple of salted dark chocolate cookies from the deli. Yum! We'd heard several of our new Serenity deck friends talking about how good the Cuban sandwich was in the deli, so that was lunch the third day. They were right; it was goooooood! Also that day was the chocolate buffet on Lido. The peanut butter chocolate cake wasn't great, but the blackberry chocolate was. Hubby loved the triple chocolate cake. We ate in the MDR two of our three nights. We both loved our food the first night. Hubby had the beef brisket and it was tender and delicious! My mahi mahi was good too, but his beef was wonderful. I had the orange and grapefruit fillet salad for my appetizer that night and enjoyed it. The second night, we both had the meatball soup as our appetizer. I thought it was good, but hubby didn't care for it. We were both mystified because there were NO meatballs in it. It had a meatball flavor, but no actual meat in either of our bowls. I had delicious prime rib for my entree. Hubby had the stuffed peppers. He wasn't impressed. By the third night, we were ready for a more relaxed dinner where we didn't have to wait on the waitstaff to bring us menus, bread, water, etc, so we ate at the buffet. Several of the entrees and appetizers on the buffet were the same as they were offering in the MDR. We weren't disappointed with the food, and were actually surprised at how crowded the buffet was that night. I sure did miss my chocolate melting cake, though! We loved the two shows in the main theater (Flick and America Rocks). The main male singer is especially talented, wow! These are far from the cheesy shows of yesteryear. We enjoyed the Motown trivia time in Flowers lobby as well as the violin trio. We saw 2 PG shows in the comedy club. They were both ok. We also saw Hasbro, the Game Show. It was cute and good for a few laughs. We hung out in the Piano Man bar one night. I didn't like the guy who was there nearly as much as the Irish gal who was on the Liberty last April when a friend and I went. This guy was a little too snarky for my taste. Nono, the cruise director, had great energy. All the staff are nice and very helpful. Fortunately, the weather was wonderful our three days. We met lots of cruisers from up north (we live in Central FL). I know they were glad to have the warm weather and sunshine! Debarkation took a while. We decided to check our luggage, so we put it out the night before and chose debark #14. There must have been a delay at the port because people who were carrying their own luggage were supposed to debark starting about 7am through 8:30ish, but I don't think they started with Deck 1 until almost 8. Then it took a long time until they called Deck 2, and another long time until they called 6 and 7. Again, this was only those who were carrying their luggage off. They were supposed to be calling #8-11 of people who checked their luggage at about 8:30, and #12 and higher starting at 9:30. By 9, they were still working on the people who were carrying their own luggage off, and finally at about 9:45, they called the last 3 decks of people carrying their own luggage, plus all of us who had checked our luggage. They must have realized that they needed to clear the ship for the next group! But the line moved fairly fast, and we were in our car by about 10:15 and headed home. This cruise was the perfect blend of fun and relaxing! Can't wait to start planning my next cruise! Read Less

This was our first cruise and overall it was great! We would defintley go Norwegian again. Theres a few things i wish they would change but these changes aren't really realistic, im just grasping at straws because like i said the cruise was great. These are just things i think would improve the experience. Small things I noticed: The breakfast was a bit repetitive and there's no ice machine so if you want ice at 2am you need to call room service. Not enough pools or hot tubs for the massive amount of people, you feel crammed like your in a sardine can. The shower curtains ABSORB, they aren't water repellent at all so after a shower theyll drip all night and you'll have a wet musty bathroom by morning. The pricing of beverages is WEIRD. Alcohol is FREE you can have as much as you want, but you have to pay for water bottles.. and soda. Its just so strange to make something people would pay big money for like alcohol completely free and make water and soda (which cost virtually nothing) cost like 3-4$ each. I just dont understand the logic. You cant find sunblock anywhere. We got into a situation multiple times where we needed sunblock but the gift shop was closed and nothing is open on the island yet so instead we just had to burn.. you would think there would be sunblock on every corner. We figured on the islands they would force people to use eco friendly sunscreen to protect the waters/wildlife so we didnt bring any assuming that wed have to buy theirs. But no. They dont care about what you use. So we were without sunblock for hours. Bigger issues: They load you onto the boat HOURS before your room is ready. You have to pray you can find somewhere to sit in the shade and wait it out until your room is ready. Id rather wait in the room where the boarding groups are called instead at least i wouldnt be stuck with all my luggage, exhausted in direct sunlight. The grand Bahama island is the 1st stop and its DEPRESSING, it was hit really hard by hurricanes so if you go a tour on shore with a tour bus your going to see a lot of toppled buildings and boarded up windows. I wish the 1st stop was the Florida keys, they were beautiful! Its just not the best 1st foot to start on seeing a hurricane torn area. They announce exactly how to get off the boat around 8am every morning, its a bit frustrating to not get very specific info in ADVANCE and to have to spring out of bed everyday to know what to do to get off the boat. It would be nice if they could just post a daily bulletin near the elevators or something so i could crawl out of bed at 10 am and on my way out could read what i need to do instead of approaching staff with questions or going down a few floors to guest services to get the info. Not very informative for newbies, there was many times where we were surprised by info. Like a mandatory US customs review at 8 am or the fact that you need to take a little boat from the main boat to get to a destination, why cant these things be announced the night prior so you can mentally prepare? Theres the daily info sheets they put on your door yes, but they never have specifics, only vague floofy written stuff that romanticizes your day and doesnt actually give you clear, concise directions. There was one day where we were visiting a private island owned by Norwegian, not only did they not explain that you had to get onto a smaller boat to get to the island but that you had to get a boarding group ticket.. they only told you this stuff at the crack of dawn the same day so you need to rush to get boarding passes and get onto the little boat. They only have excursions by Norwegian on that specific island and they dont tell you that so you think you can get on the island and go with another company so your in no rush to book tours. By the time we found out we could only book with Norwegian it was too late most of everything we wanted to do was filled. Luckily when we got on the island they were able to squeeze us in but its frustrating to not be told in advance that you can only do tours with Norwegian. Lastly, some of the employees have very heavy accents so it can be a little hard to get very detailed information sometimes. Listen carefully. The tour descriptions are the same, fluffy, romanticized verbage which paints a different picture then what you actually get. Example 1: the swim with pigs tour gives you the perception that there's a beach where pigs run free and you get to just leisurely hang out with them, when in fact, you get to a beach, lay around for 2 hours, get guided out to stand in shallow water in direct sunlight while a tour guide repeats the same info that you heard on the bus for 20 minutes before you finally get to see the pigs for maybe 30 minutes. Example 2, the wave running tour description paints a picture of you getting a wave runner and being able to leisurely ride around the islands, hop off and see star fish, instead its a guided tour where your expected to keep up with a group going like 40 mph in the water, its terrifying and filled with pressure to preform.. not what we wanted at all.. so better tour descriptions without all the fluffy words would be great. Announcements aren't inclusive. They only make announcements in English, and there were even very important announcements for MANDATORY events that weren't being announced in other languages. It just feels sad seeing the cultural diversity on the boat and knowing that some passengers are probably very confused because they don't understand the announcements. Read Less

Cruise was fun, food was good, service was good, the ship was nice and easy to get around. Only thing for me was that the music was really loud around the pool, I wanted to hang around the pool more but music was supper loud. I liked the music just now that loud. It was so loud couldn't really even talk. Everything else was great! Read some reviews that the Norweigan Sky was out dated, but we didn't find it like that, I think it had just been redone, everything seemed new and nice. We ate at 2 of the special restaurants, Cagneys, and the Bistro, they were both great, I liked the Bistro the best.The rest of the food was great, sometime found it very jammed up at the buffet, that area was a bit small flow seemed very crowed at times, but food was good. I guess you could say the room was small but we have never cruised before so didn't know what to expect. Loved the balcony, probably wouldn't cruise without a balcony, it was great! Overall the cruise was great, liked at the stops, Key west and the private island were our favorites. Read Less

I was the Free Cruise winner in the Bingo Game on our last cruise. I had minimal cruises to choose from and this cruise had two ports my husband and I hadn't visited, so it won out. Also, the "free" cruise I won cost me $800, as it was for one person only, plus port fees, plus gratuities and, understandably, any cabin upgrades. The Free Cruise was for an Inside Cabin but we chose to upgrade to a Oceanview Picture Window Cabin. The room was surprisingly comfortable in size and the closet had ample space for our luggage. No need to wedge it under the bed. The Sky is an older smaller ship but is really great. We loved the layout and ease of finding our way around, although we did miss the larger atrium setting and O'Sheehans Irish Pub. Sending a special shout out to Chris, our cabin boy in housekeeping. He was the first to actually introduce himself to us and chatted us up daily. But not everything is perfect. The scrambled eggs served in the Garden Cafe were always runny, half cooked. And I mean always! And if you opted for the Eggs Your Way/Omelette Station, as many guests did, be prepared to wait. We had our evening meals in the Palace Dining room. We had to wear our hoodies as it was always cold. We found the soups very salty and other dishes lacking in flavour. The seating in the theatre is horrible and needs to be changed/upgraded. The chairs are swivel club chairs which proved very difficult to walk past seated guests, with little to no space to "swivel" out of the way to allow guests to pass. And with only one show per night, as opposed to two on other NCL ships we've been on, the theatre was often packed, with people standing instead of having to fight their way to a seat. Lastly, our disembarkation went well until we were actually off the ship. We waited on the pier over 45 mins for bus transportation to the airport. When we asked where the bus was, we were told it was on its way. Quite a few passengers were grumbling and wondering if they were going to make their flights. We've never experienced a delay when leaving an NCL ship. This was a first. Overall, we enjoyed our cruise. As usual, all NCL staff were very friendly and helpful and the ports of call were fun.

We chose this cruise for the all inclusive experience! It was advertised as the “freedom” cruise. We wanted something fun but without being tied down to dinner times or schedules. We researched all of our stops beforehand and knew exactly what and where to hit for the best all around fun in the time at ports. Pirates cove was perfect!! Minimal fees and beautiful beach! We had already been to Key West so we enjoyed the day poolside on the ship. Every stop was perfectly timed without feeling rushed. The wait staff were friendly and knew our order without us saying by the last couple days. Our room Was very comfortable and quite comfortable for an inside room. Last year we had a balcony but figured with 4 stops we wouldn’t need it. We didn’t! Boarding was a breeze. Everywhere we went, we saw smiling faces! Enjoyed celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary!! We will be back!! Read Less

We chose this cruise because it fit perfectly into our schedule. The cruise itself was wonderful. We loved all the ports and excursions. The only problem was the food. The whole reason we switched from Royal to Norwegian was the food. This trip we saw the same shrimp in a dish most nights. Our favorite lava cake dessert, which is usually offered nightly, was only offered one night. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come. Our room was extremely small, but our room steward was excellent. We had a great time in the casino, the dealers were very friendly. I was very impressed with the life guards around the pool. I had never seen them on prior cruises and always thought they were necessary. These lifeguards made sure parents controlled their children and kept the drunk people from drowning the 7 foot deep pool. Getting on and off the ship was a breeze. Read Less

This is my first cruise so keep that in mind as you read. First, I didn't not smell any sewage on the ship ever (I was really worried about that after reading some reviews). The ship recently was in dry dock and it looked fantastic and was very clean. There were not many kids on this cruise so I would not recommend it to people wanting to vacation with their kids-I think there are other ships that would be more fun for kids. I've been told it is a smaller ship carrying about 2000 guests so if you want a bigger ship then you should take that into consideration. Personally, I thought the ship was huge so I can't imagine what a bigger ship would be like! Staff was warm and welcoming, food was what I expected (not 5 star, but I don't believe 5 star food is possible with this many guests). The food in the dining room tasted great, especially the roast beef. As far as the buffet goes, again, it was what I would suspect at a buffet-quite a variety of food that should satisfy most people and I thought it all tasted pretty good. We stayed in a deck 10 balcony room and was very happy with it. I don't have anything to compare it to in the cruise world, but as an avid camper who pulls and RV around the country I have to say, it felt pretty spacious to me! Would definitely get the balcony again as that ended up being my favorite place on the ship! Pool area was great-there are plenty of deck chairs scattered about so you can sit near the action and music or find a place that is quieter. The itinerary was great b/c we had a stop everyday and it was a 5 night cruise. Freeport was beautiful, but hasn't recovered from the hurricane so I would recommend going to a beach rather than Port Lucaya-there is nothing to see there and the people were not as friendly as other places. We were told to avoid Lucaya Beach because it was a safety issue and there were not security officers (even thought it was behing the police station-kind of weird). Read Less

Six of my friends and I always do a couples vacation each year, we found this cruise it was a good price and had unlimited drinks as well as good dates. Overall this was the worst cruise experience I’ve had. Multiple bathrooms on the cruise were broke they wouldn’t flush and were full and then overflowed. In one of our three rooms the toilet over flowed during the night and the room was soaked and flooded. My room was very clean and my stateroom Stewart was great and super friendly however the entire five days my bathroom stunk of urine and a port-o-potty despite being cleaned every day. The restaurants were extremely slow and took a minimum of 2 hours and the food was just ok. The buffet had decent food and options but there was not enough finger foods to snack on. The bars were good, at topsiders Eric and Ron both were the best bartenders they went above and beyond to make sure you had a good experience they were friendly and remembered you and your drink of choice. The DJs at bliss were not very open to song requests and were not friendly and got annoyed when we asked them to play the songs we wanted to hear. I would not recommend Norwegian to any family or friends. Read Less

My husband and I chose a short cruise on a small ship just to have a quick getaway from the freezing temperatures we have been experiencing this winter. Enchantment is clearly an older ship that could use some updating, but we had a great time and perfect weather. Port Canaveral is great, we love cruising out of this area as it is so laid back and easy to navigate. Took a shuttle from the rental car drop off and embarkation went smoothly. I enjoy a smaller ship in a lot of ways, and found the food to be much better quality than some larger ships I have sailed on. Not a lot of options for specialty dining but the main dining room was great, and service was good. There is a lot of wear and tear throughout the ship, usually one of my favourite places to spend time is the solarium but it could really use some updating. Around the ship it's easy to spot things like worn out carpet and marks on the walls, but if you are easygoing whatsoever it is easy to look past. The director and activities manager were great, Love and Marriage was hilarious as usual. We missed most of the shows due to our late dining time, but my husband really enjoyed the late night comedy show. We went to karaoke at Boleros almost every night which was a huge hit, lots of good singers for such a small ship! In Nassau we went on a snorkelling excursion, a small boat took us all to a reef off Athol Island. I really enjoyed it, my husband who is more of a pool than an ocean guy would have liked it better on a calmer day. The people running the tour were great. In Cococay we booked a spot on a private area of the island with two loungers and a shade. Lots of construction going on everywhere but it wasn't disruptive, we had a perfect beach day and saw stingrays and two small sharks while we were swimming which was very cool. Can't wait to see the island once all the construction is finished. We opted for early disembarkation which was a great choice, usually we sit around the ship without really being able to do anything for a couple of hours but we decided to try this and I'm so glad we did. Got off the ship early so the port was very quiet and quick, had our bags with us, and drove to Orlando and got some shopping in. Read Less
