I chose this cruise because we wanted a quick getaway and the price was right. I am NCl platinum, actually this was our 3 rd cruise in 2019, the first on a smaller ship. The ship was only half full. This was due to the change in itinerary. Originally the itinerary was for Cuba and due to trump that was no longer possible . Passengers were given the choice of refunds. We also couldn't dock at the private island due to high winds. Royal Caribbean dropped anchor, however I did not see their tenders out . We left and had a nice day at sea.. We were lucky enough to take a behind the scene tour. It was Fantastic NCl was also dropping off many pallets of supplies to assist the post Dorian Hurricane efforts.Our oceanview room was clean and more than adequate with a large porthole.We enjoy dining room breakfasts and the service and food was quite good. Dinners were at both the main dining rooms or Cagneys and La Cucina. My husband enjoyed his steak at Cagneys. I am a pescatarian and there were always several selections for me. We never eat hamburgers , hotdogs or that kind of food at home so I can't speak for that on a cruise. There was always fresh salads, Indian food, fish choices etc, The buffet was compact ,but adequate for lunch. Entertainment was good . There was 1 show per night at 9 pm. The comedian was funny and the singers and dance troupe was great. Both embarkation and disembarkation was a breeze. I was initially concerned that since free or discounted air was offered it would be a circus. It was handled in a quick and organized fashion. Already looking forward to the Western med cruise on the Epic next year Read Less

It was a last minute decision. We booked like 9 days before take off. We got a really good deal. The ship was a lot smaller than I had been on in the past, but I really liked the staff. They were Great. The food was great the whole time. I really liked the fact that at supper time, we could sit where we wanted, it wasn't assigned. I would diffently try Norwegian again on a little bigger boat. We had a blast. We had a Great time playing Bingo. Again, The staff on this ship were Amazing. And I loved the washy washy, happy, happy. It was great. I got to hang with my grown daughter for 5 days that were truly amazing. And we had 2 specialty suppers. I was not a big fan of the Italian restaurant, but the Streak restaurant was Delicious. That was one of the Best steaks I've ever had, and the staff was Great in the also. We had never been on Norwegian before, and didn't know what to expect, but the staff was great for helping us right from the get go. I would return to Norwegian ship again. I did not exercise( I suck at that. Lol) Read Less

Pre-Cruise: I booked parking through Spot Hero. Parked at the Embassy Suites in Crystal City. They have an airport shuttle. I paid $44. If I had parked at Reagan it would have been $68. Flight was direct DCA to MIA. Transfer to the Port through Royal. The transfer service was fantastic. I have never had a cruise line employee board the bus and give a little speech - telling parents that a ship is a mini city and to be vigilant. To the adults the same thing, don’t take your safety for granted. Embarkation: From the time I got off of the bus until I was on the ship was less than 5 minutes! We got off the bus and the cruise line employees told us to just leave our bags by the bus and someone would be over to get them. There was no one to tip. It was strange and I felt weird leaving my bag there. Into the terminal, up the escalator and over to priority. A lady scanned my phone (I had the app loaded and ready) and asked if I’d been feeling ill at all recently. She then directed me to the security screening. From there directly to the ship – AMAZING efficiency. Stateroom: Loved my cabin and there will be video and details in the Cabin thread. Junior Suite – Deck 10 – 1344. Rooms were ready at 1:00pm on the nose and my bag was at my room when I opened the door to leave again at 1:30! Service: Wonderful service. I never met my room steward. Cabin was serviced twice a day. The room was always tidy. I LOVED my dinner servers. Aiman and Josephine were fantastic. Bartenders and bar servers were also pleasant and fun. CocoCay: I was up and at the gym, had a bite to eat and then was the first one off the ship. I already knew where I wanted to “camp” for the day. The island is wonderful. I would go again for sure! The weather was not great. A bit of sun here and there before 12pm. Mostly cloudy with showers. Finally, after grabbing a chicken sandwich as the Snack Shack, I gave up. The wind was terrible. I went back to the ship to explore and read before dinner. Nassau: Terrible weather, again. I had not planned to visit. However, I wanted to lay in the sun, read, drink, people watch. Nope. Raining, cold and windy. I wandered the ship, watched some trivia, read, watched a movie. Food: I like GOOOOD food. I consider Ruth Chris a good steak not a great steak. I was expecting a solid three based on reviews (scale 1-5). Overall a solid 4. I ate dinner two nights in the MDR and once at the Windjammer. Breakfast each morning in the Windjammer. Lunch on embarkation was at El Loco Fresh and then the Windjammer for Saturday and Sunday. I truly enjoyed the MDR. Windjammer was completely average. I do like that they have the Freestyle soda machines. I can’t believe they never had pizza in there. You travel to deck 5 the Café Promenade or order Room Service to get pizza. El Loco Fresh was good. I had a simple chicken quesadilla. Of Note: The only show I saw was a Battle of the Sexes contest. It was lively and fun! The piano playing, musical comedian from Schooners, was amazing. If you are a wine drinker prepared to be disappointed with the options available with the Drink Package. The one I drank was the Andrew Peace Cabernet Sauvignon. Bourbon – No Woodford. I found Bulleit in the Royal Theater when I was wandering around on the last day. Most passengers were polite and friendly. LOTS of families and groups (bachelor and bachelorette, Quince, birthdays, etc.). I did not witness any elevator rudeness or disgusting drunkenness. It really was a lovely, relaxing few days. Disembarkation: I was up at 6:00am. I showered, then ate a quick bite and was headed off at 7:15. I did self-assist. I was sitting on the shuttle by 7:30. Final Thoughts: I would sail on the Navigator again. Based on this one trip Royal is heads and tails above NCL and Carnival. I was worried about the ship being bigger than my previous ships. It didn’t overwhelm me. I was able to find my way quite easily. The ship, the food, the staff, the fellow passengers all put this ahead of the other two, IMHO. Read Less

Booked this 5 night cruise because we wanted a shorter vacation than typical 7 day but longer than the 3-4 day ones also offered. This was a first time cruise for my travel partner as well. I’ll go day by day to give you an idea of what to expect. I will review the ship and her services and not the ports since you can read about them separately (two of our port days were cancelled due to hurricane Dorian’s destruction (Grand Bahama) and a new tropical system that formed over Great Stirrup Cay (Norwegian’s private island). First, arrival at Miami airport went as planned. Finding Norwegian transport desk was very easy on baggage claim level. Staff there were friendly, professional and prompt in getting us to the ship. Once we arrived at cruise terminal, going through various stages of embarkation went so quickly we were on the ship within 30 minutes (fastest embarkation I’ve ever experience!). We were given ship information and locations open for lunch. We decided on main dining room (Crossings). Again, staff were friendly, welcoming and helped ease us into vacation mode. Food was good....wine was too lol! Note, even with drink package , whenever you are in US ports and waters, the ship will charge tax and add it to your shipboard account. After lunch we heard the all clear to be able to get into our staterooms. The Norwegian Sky is an older ship (put into service in 1999) and had a substantial renovation earlier this year. Most public areas were nicely refreshed. Even stateroom art and bed linens were updated. Unfortunately what WASN’T updated was stateroom carpet and furniture. I was really surprised to arrive into my stateroom (balcony 9268) to find stained and worn carpet and stains on love seat, in several places. That was kinda disappointing considering how good public areas looked. The bed was very comfortable. Also note, stateroom size is identical to windowed/portholed staterooms. The only difference is the addition of the balcony and bed/loveseat configuration (instead of bed being on outside wall, it’s turned to side wall leaving about 10 inches between foot of bed and cabin wall and providing access to balcony door. Also note, cabin has a full length single glass door with a wall that has a porthole on balcony side and not usual full length double glass...strange appearance, but you get used to it. Bathroom is, well...small, but it’s functional. Definitely very tight for two but again, functional. My cabin steward, Michael, always had my room freshened up and ready whenever I returned. I kinda wondered if he ever got sleep lol! He was very talkative and friendly too. I unpacked quickly (had carried our bags on with us) and headed out to the Spinnaker lounge for sail away. The lounge, as much of the ship other than buffets and pool/hot tub areas always felt roomy and not crowded. In fact sometimes we felt as though we had the ship mostly to ourselves. Not sure if it’s always that way or just for this cruise. After sail away, we had a few more drinks, then went to dinner in Palace main dining room. Again, we were greeted with smiles and immediately seated. Great service and good food. There was a nice variety on the menu. Some items are available everyday, while others only once, ask your server. Menu is the same in both dining rooms so it just depends on which dining room is your preference for location, decor and servers. Although we ate non specialty dining dinners in Palace, lunch was usually in Crossings (Palace is only open for dinner). Food generally was good in main dining rooms. Steak was cooked as ordered (med rare) too, which was nice. After dinner, we headed to theatre for evening show. Keep in mind, main dining rooms are not fast food places so plan your time accordingly if you want to make evening shows. First night show was very good! I’m fact I was surprised at the quality of shows in main theatre. I don’t normally enjoy non production shows, but this cruise the comedian and magician were really good! So, I definitely recommend seeing them. I’d also like to take a moment to say how good the cruise director Jasper is! He’s a natural up on stage and at putting people in a relaxed vacation frame of mind. Next day was port day in Key West. Ship docks at Naval dock so Norwegian provides shuttles to the base of Duval Street. Shuttles run frequently. After spending time in town, we returned to ship to get ready for our dinner at Cagney’s Steakhouse. What a great experience that was! Awesome service, ambiance and food! I can’t recommend Cagney’s enough! Day 3 was at sea...although pool area was crowded and total party atmosphere, we were able to secure lounge chairs in a quieter area close to the atrium while still having access to pools and hot tubs. Fun relaxing day. Drinks flowed freely both from the bar and servers walking around taking orders. Dinner later in Palace was good. The comedian performed in main theatre that night, again enjoyable! Day 4 was a port day in Nassau. We did not take advantage of any excursions as I’ve been here several times. Once back on ship, went to gym, small but very adequate and never looked crowded. Dinner in Palace was good, and again consistently friendly service! Next up was magician night in main theatre. This guy was really good. He was entertaining and talented. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised at the talent on the ship. Day 5 was supposed to be a port day at Great Stirrup Cay. However that was cancelled due to weather, so we had another day at sea. Basically we had a repeat of day 3. However dinner that night was at Le Bistro, the French restaurant. This place was the biggest disappointment of the trip. I’ve eaten at Le Bistro on the Escape a few times. On the Escape, the food was excellent. Le Bistro on the Sky (while quite beautiful in ambiance) was a total disaster. The service was incredibly slow and inconsistent (can’t blame our server, he was the only waiter for our whole section). But what made the meal a total disaster was the food! NOTHING was good. The escargot were bland and over cooked. The scallop appetizer was basically ONE sea scallop cut into 3 pieces and even more bland than the escargot! The mushroom soup was runny and bland. Wine pours were small (I had the drink package so I don’t understand a pour that is less than the pour mark on the glass...I just had to wait and wait for a refill). Once the recommended entree’ (the Sole) arrived, it was over cooked and cold. I’ve eaten a lot of sole in my life in various places. I’m NOT even sure this WAS Sole. Regardless, it tasted more like the sole of my SHOE. The dessert (the Napoleon) was sickeningly sweet with cheap hard chocolate on the top. The French Press coffee was the best thing about the meal. I cannot stress just how bad this meal was. As we walked out of Le Bistro, another patron was leaving as well. Her opinion of her dining experience was spot on with ours! So, in the end. If you have a dining package, make two reservations at Cagney’s and skip Le Bistro altogether. Day 6 was arrival back in Miami. Disembarkation went even faster than embarkation! Norwegian Sky is part of a new program using facial recognition technology to process passengers. We were off the ship as quickly as we could walk! The transport for Miami airport was just as we left terminal. We boarded the bus and waited for delivery at the airport. Everything went smoothly and as planned. All in all, an excellent cruise experience. No, it’s not Crystal, Regent or Seaborn. But, the value for what you pay is really good. All the staff were friendly, professional and efficient. I would take this cruise again for a nice relaxing trip! I’d avoid Le Bistro like the plague.... Read Less

We originally chose this cruise as a Cuba & Key West itinerary with a stop at Great Stirrup Cay. Our itinerary changed several times (including even as we were aboard the ship because of Hurricane Dorian) and I was frustrated that the cruise was still departing even with the storm looming but in the end the weather was pretty fantastic and we still got a chance to stop at Key West. Our family was very impressed at the cleanliness of the ship and the service throughout was fantastic. My favorite band by far was the Iguana Duo (I went to listen to them nearly every night) but many of the other acts on the ship were underwhelming. I loved the drinks at the Sugarcane Mojito Bar but found the bartenders there to be particularly unfriendly and inattentive. Aside from that, the cruise staff in restaurants and throughout were always friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the food overall and did not partake in any of the specialty dining but I would have expected the food in the main dining rooms to be more than just average catering hall quality. I did not participate in many of the ship's activities but found the bingo game to be drawn out and boring. I was surprised to find that the fitness center had such outdated weight equipment (mainly the limited dumbbells and no barbells or kettlebells). We did not book any of our excursions through the ship as it seemed that better value was found making plans on our own. The ship photo gallery was offensively overpriced--next time, we will not bother buying the professional photos. Overall, I enjoyed the cruise and will be going on another Norwegian cruise next year but am hoping to find better food (and a better gym) and more consistent entertainment on the next ship.

The people serving on this cruise were awesome. A special shout out to Katherine San Juan for her energy early in the morning in the dining room buffet area. "washy washy makes you happy" loved it!! and to Edith from Peru and and everyone else that cleaned our room, always with a smile and a friendly good morning. The food could be better at the buffet. The stateroom was comfortable, the bed was great had the best night sleep ever. the embarking was a smooth process. The entertainment could be better and the food as well. I definitely want to do another family trip and bring more family members, can't wait for my next cruise. I want to try another Norwegian ship and a longer cruise. This cruise in the overall was awesome and everyone was very friendly. The Stirrup keys Island was amazing, had a wonderful time there did not want to leave you left the best for last. Thank you Norwegian Sky. Read Less

We chose this cruise as a replacement option. Our Cuba cruise was cancelled by presidential order and NCL offered us to take this cruise, instead. Although the itinerary wasn't our first choice, vacation time was set aside and this was our only alternative. NCL discounted our cruise 50% and gave us a 50% discount towards a future cruise. Therefore, the deal was right. The vessel looks beautiful inside. We learned it was recently refurbished. Other than difficulty finding public bathrooms (few and far between), and the A/C blasting far too much, particularly around the Stardust theater (trust me, way too cold), the cruise was fabulous. The attention to detail and the incredible high customer service made it even better. Our recent experience with NCL wasn't good. Customer service was lacking, and the little things missing. This time around everyone was very attentive to our every need. A couple of disappointments included learning that our Platinum standing was limited to on-board discounts. We did not receive our "usual" perks (water, champagne, free laundry, free specialty dining, etc.). NCL claims that said perks are reserved for cruises in excess of 5 days, which was news to us. We had never heard such thing before. We did two tours: Atlantis on our own and swimming with the pigs. Both were perfectly organized and fun. A final thought: NCL must realize that Royal Caribbean and others charge virtually the same, do the same itineraries, and have a better reputation. Every time NCL changes the rules, it turns us off. We have two more cruises coming. Afterwards, we are going back to Royal. Read Less

I researched ship, cruise ports and excursions for this cruise ahead of time. The oceanview stateroom was fine no complaints other than minor cosmetic issues. The entertainment was ok. I really enjoyed the comedy show. Re-entering the ship from port was quick with no issues. The food in the buffet was not not but rather just warm enough to tolerate if you at right away. Some in my group complained that their food was cold. The cruise lines offered a shuttle service to airport however, there was only 1 shuttle and if you had to claim luggage, you may have missed the shuttle. I was a little disappointed that there was no adult pool area or quiet cabanas on this ship. There was a smaller kiddie pool in the front of the ship. I think that this could have been the adult area rather than the kiddie area. I did snorkeling on the private island for $30 but later found that if you brought your own mask it was much cheaper. When I purchased the excursion there was not an option to bring personal equipment. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we were traveling with our two adult children and there girlfriend/boyfriend. The drink package which was included in the price was the main reason we booked this particular cruise. The packages on the other cruise lines would have made it prohibitive for us to bring everyone on the vacation. The room credits were helpful in booking our excursions. The Norwegian Sky is a smaller ship - good for our long weekend but we prefer larger ships for longer stays. Most staff members were nice but few made eye contact or interacted unless we initiated a "hello". Maybe this is how they are trained but we much prefer the friendliness of the other cruise lines staff who interact with the guests, make you feel welcome and have fun with you. Take some pointers from Royal Caribbean. One exception to this was Regina - who was our Cabana bar tender - she deserves 5 stars!! Compared to some of the other cruise lines, the food options and quality of the food was superior. Always had to be careful not to over indulge !!!! The wait staff in the main dining room never seemed to have it all together . We would start with one waiter then mid way through our meal wound up with a new wait staff - this happened all three nights of the cruise. On several occasions we didn't get what we ordered but when brought to their attention we quickly got the correct meals. Maybe they were being trained and that's ok for us but I imagine this wouldn't go over too well with other guests. Great Stirrup Cay was fabulous - we booked a cabana and what a treat it was!!!!! Regina who was our bar tender was awesome. It was so nice to have the shade, lounge chairs and sofa for our group. The food truck that was close to the cabanas was Read Less

We love cruising. We stay loyal to Royal. We have been on Oasis class, freedom class and now voyager class ships. This trip was a four night trip from Miami to the Bahamas. It included a stop at CocoCay, Nassau, and one sea day. Embarkation - The ship left from Port of Miami Terminal A. The process was incredibly smooth. When you walk in there is two options. 1) If you have your set sail pass you go to a tablet and scan it. Then you have your picture taken and are on your way. The process takes a couple minutes 2) If you do not have your set sail pass then you go to the counter. We did not in this case because we booked the cruise after the three day check in window. Therefore we had to go to a clerk to complete the check in process. This process took about 6 minutes. Either option you get your room keys once you get on the ship. That was strange to us but apparently it’s becoming a more common practice. Once you finish the check in you go through security and then into a holding room. We didn’t have to wait long and were on the ship by 10:30 Ship - Wow! It is a beautiful ship. We were a little nervous since this is the oldest/smallest ship we had been on yet but we thought it was wonderful. The ship recently went through the AMPED upgrades and it looked great! Food - Overall the food was amazing. We ate all of our dinners in the MDR. We didn’t have a bad meal. It was delicious. We split our breakfasts between cafe promenade and the windjammer. The windjammer was good but it is still buffet food. Cafe Promenade has delicious sandwiches and is a good option if you just need something small. El Loco Fresh is where we had lunch on sea days- all I can say is YUM!! We loved it. Stateroom - We stayed in an interior room. It was fine for what we needed. The room was not the cleanest we’ve had but it was fine. Entertainment- It isn’t the best on this trip. The ice show is AMAZING. It’s the best I have ever seen. However the productions shows were awful! We also felt like there was less options of activities on this trip compared to normal. disembarkment - Smooth! We were able to walk off and go right through customs. The port at Miami has been upgraded and makes it easy to get on and off. Overall we had a great trip and would jump at the chance to cruise on Navigator again. Read Less

Hi folks, we just got back from a short cruise onboard the NCL Sky. I have to say that I was over all impressed with the conditions to the ship. The Casino had new slots and they came out to win on the last night. So here are a few things that I will point out. 1. Ship, the ship looked really good after the refit We had good weather and we made all the stops. Being a casino guest really is a nice experience with NO waiting to get on the ship. The ship looks years newer the NCL Sky is again a treat to go cruising on. 2. Cabin, the cabin was really nice with all the new schemes and colors. They replaced all the doors out to the balconies and took out those nasty blue waffle matts with new flooring. Nice job NCL! 3. Dining, We had dinner at Cagney's and the food was excellent. The food in the buffet was average but hey, it was a 3 day cruise. The food in the main restaurant what good over all but my favorites was breakfast. 4. Entertainment and Activities, well we are talking about the NCL Sky here. The best party boat at the Port Of Miami!!! Pools side is great and the party never stops. The other passengers where having a huge good time and of course the "Free Drink Package" pays for it self over and over. For me I enjoyed the nights at the Karaoke in the big lounge up forward from 9:00 to 11:00pm. My over all activities was in the Sky Casino and the grand new machines paid out for me on Sunday night. 5. Service, we have cruised on NCL 12 times and the service is always EXCELLENT. From the moment we got to the Terminal to the last minuet stepping off the ship it was again excellent. My hat off to the Crew of the NCL Sky. 6. Port and Shore excursions, Key West was really nice but my all time favorite was Private Island, loved the water and the drinks. There were 8 of us in our party some had cruise before and some for the first time. They are all booking again for March 15 2020 sailing on the newest NCL ship, NCL Encore. Read Less

My husband and I are frequent cruisers but have been loyal to Royal Caribbean, and occasionally Carnival for convenience. This was our first NCL cruise, and we chose it because we wanted to visit Key West on a short weekend cruise. The schedule and value were perfect, and a low priced direct flight out of Charleston, SC was the icing on the cake! (We live 2 hours from Charleston). Having never experienced the open bar concept, we weren't expecting much as far as service or food (to compensate for the free alcohol), and also expected a ship full of belligerent drunk people. Boy, were we wrong! The ship was beautiful (although a little confusing at first), the crew was SUPER friendly, the food and drinks were amazing, and other cruisers were a blast! We didn't experience any extremely drunk people, surprisingly enough, and the ambiance of the ship was laid-back and just fun. Our oceanview room was perfectly comfortable from the cool AC to the bed and pillows. We are extremely satisfied and pleasantly surprised, and look forward to more cruises on NCL, particularly the Sky. Read Less

We just wrapped up a four-night Bahamas cruise on the Navigator of the Seas. We had the Key, got to the terminal about 9:30am, checked in, did security, sat in the Key area and were literally the first to board at 10:40am. We had already dropped our luggage with the stevedores, but should have waited and dropped it at the Key area on deck 4. Information about the Key was sort of scarce. We didn’t receive our bags until about 5pm. Fortunately we had packed swimsuits and sunblock and were able to enjoy the pools and slides. About the Key: -The internet package was great. -We didn’t know until the last day that the Key acts as a “fast pass” for the water slides (grr). -The Chops lunch was excellent (filet) -We only used the priority seating for the ice show, but there was plenty of room at the other shows. -Our main dining room departure breakfast the last morning was really nice. -Info on departure procedures was a bit sketchy, so we left our baggage in the cabin during breakfast and after we grabbed our luggage and just went to the bamboo room to be escorted off (shorter line). It worked out just fine. -Our “checked luggage” was with everyone else’s, no specific “Key” Area was marked off at customs. Service was always friendly and attentive, except the bar servers were surly. At the theater one night, a server refused to provide a drink menu, and at one of the pool bars the last night, the bartender acted as though he was doing us a favor by making drinks and wouldn’t even talk to us. Hopefully these were the exception. The water slides and flow rider were fun, although the pools were really crowded on the sea day. We enjoyed the soft serve ice cream once we found it, and were so stuffed from meals we didn’t snack too often! We aren’t big drinkers, but the $12 mixed drink prices seemed high. We felt that RCI “nickels and dimes” passengers a lot. The main dining room charged an extra $8 for squeezed orange juice. That’s ridiculous. We didn’t do any formal excursions and instead explored Nassau independently and spent the Cococay day at Chill Beach (the island food was better than the Windjammer buffet, especially the brownies!)

Embarkation was a breeze, arriving at 11:00, changed into bathing suits and had a great day at the pool. The band was entertaining and great dj music and enjoyed tacos by the pool. Our luggage arrived to our cabin by the time we finished at the pool, in plenty of time to clean up for dinner. Dinner service was great in My Time Dining and with our pre-board reservations we were sat immediately. The only real complaints I have for the ship is the lack of bar service. There was only one waiter in the casino and he served only the table games. If you played slots or video poker, you must fend for yourself. There was usually only one bartender at the casino bar as well. The other thing that we found lacking was the Diamond Lounge. We missed the ambiance and the view from the Crown Lounge. Being a small lounge with no windows on Deck 5 (I think) was no where we wanted to be. However the Concierge there was wonderful. Debarkation was very fast although no one adhered to their departure time. Read Less

We enjoyed the spacious Family Suite although it wasn’t cleaned very well. When we boarded to dropoff our carryon before heading to lunch the room appeared to be finalizing cleaning so no big deal; however, after using the loo and approaching the sinks to wash my hands, I noticed toothpaste in bothe sinks! We cruise often in Haven and Suites so this was a first for us! Upon leaving the room the steward came up, we thought to introduce himself as usual, but instead berated is for coming in before the room had been cleaned! Not the best first impression at all. A normal request to have the fridge emptied so we could store juices and canape plates was ignored the entire cruise by the Steward and butler. After 3 days of reminders and notes left in room it became a battle of wills, one we lost. The steward was a bit standoffish and neglected to turn down our room, something we have never had to specifically request. Not a big deal but not ordinary. We ended up wasting food because we had no fridge to store it. I ended up not going without slippers because the same debri from when we arrived in the suite remained the entire. cruise. The ship was nice, food great and service was good outside suite, and we had a fun trip overall. Just wanted to point out some oddities and make sure this is the exception! Oh, and the concierge, Reoul, I think, we never met. He brushed past us a few times and we didn’t even know who he was until disembarkation when he was waiting at the exit to say goodbye. Uh, he never said hello! Again odd since we always bond with Haven personnel including Courtyard valet, Butler, steward, etc. Read Less

There was kids sail free promotion going on with Royal Caribbean Cruise and this was perfect sailing for our group. This was our first cruise and wanted to go on short cruise. We were 28 passengers in group including kids. Ship is recently rebuild so interior is modern and rooms are spacious. We were all had interior rooms but still found spacious enough even 4 of us (2 + 2). Staff were awesome and they arranged welcome gestures in form of making animal from napkins. My kids love that. Dinning facility was outstanding. This was our first cruise so we were quite worried about food and our special dietary requirement but they have taken care of this very well. They arranged our big group very easily. There were so many options that we never felt short of option. From 24X7 Pizza to special dinner all were perfectly arranged for all needs. We loved theater act as well magic show. Kids loved movies on deck at pools. Shore excursion are little costly compare to direct purchase but still they have enough option, if you want to use their services. Read Less

I chose this cruise because it was something I always wanted to experience and so I took my 9 yr old grandson during Spring break from school. We love the Disney Parks and wanted to try to cruise. My husband, 23 yr old son, my grandson and myself were in stateroom 7536. My brother, sis in law and 18 yr old nephew were in 7520. We had a nice time all in all. There was a mishap on first night dinner in AP. We ordered steaks and my bro got a one inch piece of metal in his. He was chewing and after feeling it, he spit it out - thank goodness. The wait staff, chef and head waiter were very apologetic and I felt bad for the chef. He looked so upset and puzzled. It was a piece of metal from a wire brush that would be used to clean a grill. This could have ruined entire cruise if it had been swallowed. Like I said, they were very upset that this happened and I hope they do whatever they need to do to ensure this never happens again. Swallowing that could be fatal. At the very least would require surgery. We received Magical Memories certificates for our troubles. The ports were fine. Key West was nice. Nassau - been there, done that. Unless your doing a day at Atlantis, might be best to stay on the ship. Castaway Cay, was beautiful. The weather was great. The shows were awesome. Saw every one of them. They released END GAME on the ship and that was so fun. Disney details were the best. We enjoyed some late night trivia and juggling entertainment. The food was okay but nothing over the top. We didn't do Palo. We were very disappointed that Lumiere's did not offer any entertainment for dinner. AP and the Tangled restaurants did have lovely entertainment, but not Lumiere's. It was our last night's restaurant so we looked forward to some fun, but there was none to be had. The wait staff said they removed the Beauty and the Beast entertainment because it was frightening to the little ones. This is Disney and they could have done something else rather than nothing. So yeah that was disappointing. Would I do another Disney Cruise, possibly but not 100% yet. Read Less

I have not sailed on the Voyager class - have been on all the others but somehow missed the Voyager class - Mariner was like an abbreviated Independence of the Seas! Anyway, I usually dislike weekend cruises because of the hassles boarding and disembarking - lines, crowds, chaos AND the cruise lines typically use older, less feature rich ships. So when I saw the Mariner OS pop up and I found out she has just completed a massive refit - I decided to risk it and go. While the price was no deal, and since I went solo it was double the fare(almost), it was worth it to me to get on the ship. I did receive an onboard credit so I bought the Ultimate Dining Package with it so that as a solo I would not have to navigate the MDR. Upon arrival at the Port of Miami to the new monolithic RCCL terminal , I have to admit I was impressed. While I am Diamond with RCCL it did not matter at all as I was through check-in, security, and on the ship within 15 minutes of hitting the curb - Amazing. No lines, no fuss, no muss. Once on board at 12:30 Cabins were not available so I explores the ship and went to johnny Rockets for lunch. I must admit my first impression was that the ship was spotless and appeared almost new - everything was refreshed and shimmering. Lunch was ok at Johnny Rockets as I was the first customer I didn't get any of the fun stuff - just a burger and drink. Rooms became available and I went to my "inside" cabin with a window overlooking the Royal Promenade - I had chose a guarantee rate and this is what I received. It was very spacious and centrally located. I then went looking for the Diamond Lounge and found it on deckk 14 - I love the Diamond Lounge as it can be an Oasis of Calm on these dold out cruises - and it was! I used it extensively all weekend. Beautiful sail away from Miami as the sun set behind the skyline. It got dark and we were out to sea about 2 and 1/2 hours out we were told we were returning to Miami due to a medical emergency. What a treat (for me, not the poor patient being rushed back) as the skyline of Miami was in full illumination and it was spectacular. Dinner night one was at Jamie's and I would rate it as just ok, nothing outstanding - Service was less than attentive and I attributed this to being a solo diner. Dinner Night Two was at Izumi and it was fabulous - the food was excellent and service spot on! As good if not better than land based Sushi restaurants. My only dislike was the Teppanyaki shows were ongoing and LOUD but hey that is part of what Teppanyaki is about. Dinner Night Three was in Chops and though I am not a beef eater, I found plenty on the menu and it was very good - service was excellent However, my best dining experience was Sunday (Nassau) for lunch and I opted to go to Jamie's - It was outstanding! I had the Brushetta - yum, the chicken in mushroom cream sauce - Outstanding - lick the bowl clean good and a light Raspberry custard desert that was amazing. Service was attentive and friendly - a great experience. Coco Cay - Will be amazing when finished. The new pool is incredible and the facilities are on par with a Disney WaterPark! Just worry the first hurricane will take it out! The Solarium pool was my hangout as I had the ship to myself while at Coco Cay and Nassau and I was extremely please to see the lifeguards and pool attendants enforcing the 30 minute chair reservation limit AND the smoking rules. Shows were mediocre Lounge acts were excellent Ship is gorgeous and clean!!!!!! Fellow Passengers - all types - some loud and obnoxious others respectful and nice while many were drunk becuase they had purchased drink package and wanted to get their money's worth! All in All - very nice to excellent Read Less

We travelled as a family of 3 - Mom, Dad and our 7yr old daughter. We chose Mariner as the itinerary worked for us and we’ve cruised Royal previously. We were also looking forward to the newer amenities offered since the ship’s recent revamp. Embarkation: Dead easy. We booked a Jr Suite so we were swept up to the Suite lounge once we arrived at around 1:30pm. Once our docs were checked we were onboard in less than 15 minutes. Fantastic. Cabin: Our 10th floor Jr suite - Rm 1694 - was at the very back of the ship (stern for ship folks..) with an awesome view from our balcony. This was our third time in a Jr suite but our first rear balcony and we loved it! As others have described, the room was very spacious; certainly spacious enough for the 3 of us. The pull out sofa which was made up nightly was perfect for our daughter but I imagine it would not work for a child over 10, maybe 12 years old. The bathtub was great and necessary for our daughter who still likes to take baths. It was also good for our showers. The balcony was huge... a respite from the busyness of the ship. My favorite place. Dining: We ate at Windjammer buffet, the main dining room (5th floor), Chops Grille and the Promenade. Windjammer was fine. Lots of variety and we were only challenged with finding seats on the 3rd morning. Otherwise the buffet seating was more than adequate. The food was decent enough - not great, not bad. We enjoyed it. We only ate dinner in the MDR once and it was just okay. The service was excellent but the food was average. My husband liked his steak but my short rib wasn’t very good. My daughter isn't a foodie so no real opinion from her. Read Less

I wanted something short but not too short since this was our first cruise with my 10 & 12 yr old kids. 4 nights and 5 days cruise was great! Stayed at Holiday Inn night before embarkation. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Uber over to the port and it was easy. Embarkation: I set for 11:30 am check-in. We were there around 11 and on the ship by 11:30 am. I did online check in before I arrived and made embarkation very quick. Hardly any wait. Deluxe drink package (including alcohols): online purchase offers a few different deals from time to time. I got mine about two weeks before embarkation and got 20% off each person. I think one of the reviews mentioned to buy it before getting on the ship but not really. I think they were offering 30% off on the ship. Deluxe drink package is perfect for someone who drinks. Also, includes bottled water and pops. By the way, no IPA beer. LIttle bumped! You can get your drink as soon as you get on the boat. Just show your printed seasail pass until you get your seapass at 1 pm. Nassau: We didn't do any excursion. Hung out at the ship most of the time and went out for a short time to hang out in the city for a bit. Not a lot of people on the ship so it was nice. Grabbed our lunch and sat by the pool table. Coco Cay: Ship docks. I did not know that. Perfect Day at Coco Cay was not open but still a lot to do. My drinks were included since I had the deluxe drink package. We did snorkeling. You pick up your gear and just jump in the water whenever. You can get in the water as many time as you would like. Buffet lunch was served and pretty good for what it was. Entertainments, activities, and service: Service was awesome. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Entertainments were just OK. Activities were nice. Plenty to do but sky pad was close the whole time. Disembarkation: We carried our own bag. We did not want to get stuck in the crowd and wait to get out so we decided to grab a quick breakfast from the promenade cafe and went. It was around 7:30 am. Disembarkation was quick too. I think we could have taken our time a bit. Got the Uber and waited for about 15 minutes and we were on our way to the airport. By the way, if you go end of the terminal there is an area where you get picked up by Uber or Lyft. Cabin: We had inside stateroom. It was small but we were barely in there. Kids slept on the bunk bed and they loved it! A few notes: I saw one of the reviews mentioning to bring outlet since there are not too many. True. But don't. They don't let you use them. You can just ask your room attendance for one. Read Less

I picked this cruise for a family vacation that includes 2 teenage boys (13 &17). It has been 19 years since the last time I cruised and A Lot has changed. Embarking and disembarking were Extremely easy, quick, and efficient. You can tell Royal Carribbean has put a lot of money into their Port Terminal. My 13 year old enjoyed the cruise the most. He loved trampoline and flow rider the most. 17 year old liked the rock climbing wall and challenging his Dad to mini golf. Had 2 rooms that had a promenade view. That made rooms seem bigger but due to late night activities it could be a bit noisy late at night. It was really easy to join the action or to run down for a quick snack. The promenade made it easier for me to orientate myself on the ship and finding room easier. Nassau....eh....not my favorite stop. Coco Cay was our Favorite stop. RC was handing out umbrellas for free that day and we hung out on the beach and went snorkeling. Food was a lot more variety than I was expecting from previous reviews. We could have spent our whole trip at coco cay. The new pier made it really easy to get on and off the boat. The main dining room experience was enjoyed by all of us. Our two waiters Paritosh and Moch went out of their way to personalize our service. Always took extra time to give us cruise tips or to chat about our day. Read Less

This was the third Royal Caribbean cruise for my fiance and I. We've sailed on Oasis of the Seas and Enchantment of the Seas, and thought Mariner would be a good in-between. Since the cruise was short, this was a precursor to a Disney trip we took after disembarking. We chose Mariner because it was recently updated and appeared to have great night life. We flew into Miami the evening before and stayed at the Ramada airport hotel. It was our second stay there, and we love it. Very cheap, but clean and the attached pub is really good. The following morning we took an Uber to the port. The terminal is brand new and beautifully designed. When we arrived at check-in, we were surprised to see someone with just an iPad. The employee took our photos on the iPad, checked our documents and sent us through security. We received a paper with boarding info an a bar code, but no Sea Pass cards, which we were confused by. It turned out that the paper we received was our temporary sea pass until we got our rooms at 1pm. I found this to be super strange and inconvenient, as paper gets wet when trying to get bartenders to scan it on the pool deck. Several people were confused about this as well, I'm not sure when they stopped printing Sea Pass cards at check-in. When we boarded, none of the bars on board were ready, and most locations on top deck were still being cleaned. We did find one bar open but they were out of several items. It was strangely quiet compared to when we boarded our other cruises. No music, not a ton of crew members around. We did go on the bow a few times, and it's SO cool. Definitely check that out if you can, we didn't have access on our other cruises. Once we set sail the bars were fully stocked and open, and everything was in full swing. We got into our stateroom at 1:30, and our luggage was there early as well, although we actually found it down the hall waiting at the wrong door. Our steward's name was Sid, and he was very nice, though we only saw him twice, and not until the second day. He did a great job, we were just used to having more of an introduction than we got with him. I always enjoy that personal touch that the stewards bring with formal introductions. Our interior stateroom was comfortable and identical to all the others we've had. We were on Deck 10 and felt a lot of vibration in the evenings, but otherwise it was great. On the second night in the hallway there was a terrible sewage smell that luckily didn't penetrate through the door into the room. It was gone the next day but alarmingly strong the entire evening. Overall, the ship was well run but the cruise itinerary was very predictable. The stage show put us to sleep. The Quest was awesome as usual, and the ice show was great as well. We saw the comedian on the final night and found him to be average. We also went to the Perfect Couple Game Show, but both thought Love and Marriage was better. They did not offer it on this cruise. There were also several themed street parties on the promenade. The balloon drop was very cool, but otherwise these parties were repetitive and I never want to hear the Cupid Shuffle again in my life. Also, the Red nightclub experience was not worth our time, as most of the cruise was full of spring breakers who just wanted to create mosh pits and jump all over everyone trying to dance. I DO highly recommend the silent party called "Hush"...just go to it. You won't regret it! We did shop on the Promenade, but had issues with our Sea Pass account. I went to purchase a shirt and didn't have spending privileges. It turned out that our account hadn't been set up properly, but the store cashier was very rude and loudly exclaimed in front of everyone that I must not have enough money when my card didn't work. We ate in the dining room the first evening, which was good. Nothing too special, the menu is pretty similar on all RCCL ships. On the second evening we went to Jamie's Italian. It was incredible! Highly recommend it. We both loved everything they brought out and even tried new foods. Loved everything, would eat there all nights if I could. The final night we ate in the Windjammer which was good comfort food and I had no complaints. Our first port was Coco Cay. We were the first ship to ever dock at the new pier, which was pretty cool! We rented a beach bed for $125 which came with lunch, Evian water, floating mats and drinks service. Worth every penny. It was so peaceful, an absolutely perfect day. We also went to the floating bar and saw a shark and stingray in the water. We went snorkeling in the roped off area but didn't see a ton of fish this time. Last trip they were everywhere. We figured it had something to do with the tide. Next we went to Nassau. Last trip we went to Atlantis but this time we decided to just get lunch and head back to the ship. We went to Fat Tuesday for daiquiris. The rest of the day was spent on top deck at the pool. Overall, a good cruise. I wouldn't say it was my favorite but it was good. There were definitely moments where we felt things could have been handled better. The entertainment is all the same across the cruise line and we felt like we'd just seen it all before. I did enjoy the food and Coco Cay the most, and I think our next cruise we will be mixing it up and staying away from the short itineraries. We just want more time to soak things in. Read Less

This is the review that we left in our Royal Caribbean survey Matthew Gauthier the piano player was outstanding. He was the best piano player we've ever experienced on any Cruise. We thought the hidden piano player was also very funny and good. Bobby and Jamee in the main dining room made a great team and we really enjoyed having them serve us. We did however, feel rushed during our 9 p.m. dinner seating. We did not particularly care for each evenings dinner service entertainment by the waiters. We actually felt bad for them. Alex from the Cruise director activities team was horrible. There were several games that he was leading that we walked out of. He seemed to make up the rules as he went along. We found all the other entertainment staff to be quite good. We thought The Quest was very well run. we totally loved the silent disco and wished that it would run on multiple nights. We'd like to suggest, in addition to karaoke, you consider a lip sync activity option for those who like to sing but don't have the voice for it. It may also bring out the showman in some guests which may be entertaining for other guests. We did not like the perfect couple game as it was difficult to see what was going on and lack to the of the enjoyment of the love and marriage game. Please bring back love in marriage. We walked out of the comedian's "family friendly" performance. We found him offensive, borderline racist and not very funny. It should be noted that we spoke to other people on the cruise who expressed the same opinion. The overall suite experience was highly disappointing. While the ship offers many amenities for the standard cruiser, the same can't be said for suite guests. The suite program on Mariner is inconsistent with that on the other Royal ships. For example, there is no internet included in a suite program on Mariner. The amenities for suite deck are substandard to what we've come to expect from the other ships. The lack of coastal kitchen detracted from our overall dining experience. The suite level accommodations for guests on cococay were downright embarrassing. The beach was small, unclean, and the chairs were worn. Transportation to the suite Beach was mostly absent and also not clearly communicated nor adequate signage available. The view from the cabanas was subpar. The beverage service in the lunch area was broken. Fortunately we had brought our own water to drink. We were never approached by any servers on the beach to see if we wanted something to drink. As it relates to the pool deck we have the following comments. There needs to be at least one more towel station potentially up in the sportsplex for the water rides. We did think that there needs to be some additional protection from the smoking area going into the solarium. There was quite a bit of smoking odor pouring into the solarium without this protection.The adults only policy in the solarium was not enforced and defeats the purpose of having an adults-only solarium. We did however find the deck seating and quantity of PODS available for use to be quite satisfactory. We also especially liked the seating outside of the suite lounge. We found it difficult to find places to get a beverage during the day and the unsweetened iced tea was nowhere to be found on the ship except windjammer. We purchased dinner at chops the first night. Our server was very friendly and we enjoyed her company. The food was just okay. We really would have been better off eating in the main dining room and getting the chops fillet there for half the cost. We went to Chops dinner at 6 on the first night and they were already out of the bronzini. At the time there were only about six people in the restaurant and the table next to us got the last two. That was very disappointing. We tried breakfast at chops one morning as suite guests. The service was very very slow, the order was messed up and we ended up going to windjammer to finish our breakfast. Lastly we would like to say how much we thoroughly enjoyed the escape room. Christopher was our guide and really made the experience enjoyable. Congratulations for providing a top-tier activity that the whole family could enjoy. That was definitely worth the extra money. You exceeded our expectations. Read Less

Embarkation at the new terminal A in Miami went fine. Not a fan of the Port of Miami..much prefer Port Canaveral. As Emerald and Diamond members we should have been placed in the expedited check in line but were shuffled into the regular line. Loved our cabin steward and waiter. Assistant waiter was ok..not great. Would recommend you get your towels at the pool before you go to Coco Cay as there was a long wait on deck 1 to get towels. Would recommend that Royal Caribbean have the towels available right after you get off the ship at Coco Cay as it would be more efficient. Windjammer Cafe is too chaotic for me so we ate breakfast in the dining room. Food in dining room was very good. Loved the French onion soup! Beds in cabin were super comfortable. They need to have the activities open longer hours. Ice skating was only open front 10-11:30pm the last night if the cruise. Laser tag was completely booked due to limited offering of the activity. We were the first passengers to walk off the ship at Coco Cay instead of tendering in which was awesome. The pool is now open on Coco Cay also...very chilly but excellent pool bar. We bought a day pass for Atlantis Aquaventure from www.bahamasdaypass.com. Was cheaper than using cruise line. Just pay $4 per person for taxi over to Atlantis. Read Less

On the Sky for Spring break. There were 1500 college spring breakers on board. For the most part they were well behaved. Funny to watch for sure. We went to the Bahamas, we were supposed to go to the private island but it was too windy. The ship had just been redone so it was nice. The sports bar is now called the local and there are no major sports channels or any other channels of tv. One sports channel with small sports on it. With it being basketball tournament session that was a bid downer and a mistake in my opinion. Dining in the private restaurants (steakhouse and the Italian) was very good in both quality and service. We were in a suite and for us that was the perfect choice. We only had to be with the spring breakers when we wanted to. By being in a suite you had access to a private breakfast and lunch. Our concierge Armando and Rosvy the butler made our trip so much better! Read Less
