Negatives: Spring break cruise, my MISTAKE. Screaming, drinking, banging on doors in the middle of the night, singing " coronavirus in the hallways" at 3am. Watched a couple of spring breakers who coughed without covering mouth and/or putting head into sleeve or anything more than one time, tried to avoid them as much as possible. Lesson learned! The balcony staterooms have been ...

Received quite a good deal when booking from the UK with less than 3 weeks to go. Online booking process very easy and straightforward. Having cruised with Celebrity in the past, who we love, we were looking forward to trying another cruise line. The ship; -Very well refurbished -Although smaller - seemed ample space for everyone -Layout can be a bit tricky at times but really not ...

We booked 4 nt cruise on the Sky two weeks before embarkation after receiving a ridiculously inexpensive "offer". We started in oceanview cabin with 2 free at sea (premium drink package, 1 specialty dining) but were upgraded to balcony on 9th deck after submitting Upgrade Advantage offer of $50pp. THE GOOD *Loved almost all staff, as usual. This time we, surprisingly, had a couple ...

My daughter chose the Cruise for her Destination Wedding in Freeport Bahamas. We had nearly 30 people in our total group. Over half of us were first time cruisers. Overall, I think most everyone would go on a second cruise. The food was as good as we expected for a cruise. The dining food is a little better than the buffet food. The pizza bar was the ultimate in a lot of our eyes and ...

Initial Booking Experience: We chose NCL as our cruise line because it was good price, had "free" perks, and had the ability to finance the cruise payments over time. We had never done this so we were new to the process, and had no knowledge of cruising and what to look for other than what Google told us. NCL had the 5 free offers, so we chose Free Internet, Free Specialty Dining, Free Flights, ...

Fun times entertainment was excellent great shows.. Jasper the director was funny and we enjoyed all his activities. The ship was in good condition overall but the sink didn't drain well and one afternoon we had no water in the afternoon. The service was overall good although some bartenders were rude and not very customer service oriented. (this happens when people are tipped ...

I chose the cruise because I wanted to go back to KeyWest and Freeport Bahamas. Freeport was not visited due to the previous storm. There was no perks or discounts given because of the cancellations. I have been spoiled by the ships leaving Boston and expected more from the Sky. There was very little entertainment. The nightly show was at 9 pm. The food was average. The only place I truly ...

We just got back from a 5-day cruise to the Bahamas on the Norwegian Sky as part of a girl’s weekend. This was my first time on Norwegian. I have cruised 2x before with Royal Caribbean and was excited to see how this cruise line compared. Sorry this is long but I know when I am looking at reviews, I like to see some details not just yeah it was fun! The Ship: First this is a small ship ...

This is the classic, you get what you pay for. My biggest concern prior to the cruise was all of the bad reviews on food. I have sailed NCL many times and the reality of these incredibly low fares is that NCL is cutting corners on Garden Cafe/Lido Deck buffet food. If embarcation day was any indication related to food quality all the bad reviews were correct. No sign of beef, shrimp or anything ...

We chose this cruise for a quick long weekend get away. We had another couple join us, they had never cruised. This was our 7th cruise, the first on Norwegian. Overall, the ship was in great shape very clean. The rooms were much smaller than we have had on previous ships, along with a small bathroom. The balcony was fine, about the same as we had had before. We only met our attendant once, ...
