Staff was awful
"Unbeknownst to us we left the ship in Nassau where our excursion was booked, and the staff member who we asked about meeting locations, etc.Shortly before boarding the ship, the itinerary was changed and our days in Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay were switched, we were informed with a notice that said all shore excursions and reservations would be rearranged on their own and no further action was necessary...."Read More

From a first (but not last!) time cruiser...

My wife and I took this as a "makeup" cruise for our 5 year anniversary, which was supposed to be a week aboard the Encore back in January. Unfortunately we got COVID three days before embarkation. Long story short, we were able to squeeze this shorter cruise aboard the Sky. We are first time cruisers, so keep in mind this review comes from someone who has not seen all the bells and whistles of ...

This was my first time cruising, and while the ship and destinations were beautiful. The customer service was severely lacking. Some staff were extremely nice, while the other 50% or more were unwilling to help clarify questions and assist me with issues that occurred when our shore excursion was cancelled as well as when the walkie talkies we brought onboard were confiscated when boarding. ...

Horrible Honeymoon

I have sailed with many other cruise lines and even NCL prior to this multiple times. The experience back then was a great experience. It appears to me that NCL has made some changes not for the good over time. The service was horrible, people unfriendly, no servers on the pool deck, hour waits to get a drink, embarkation was more than painful, etc. This was a complete waste of hard earned ...

Almost perfect but a missed port put a damper on things

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was my first cruise and I really wanted to take my parents away for my mom's birthday. We were skeptical of how the trip would be since this is a small older ship. We were pleasantly surprised, the ship looks great with the renovations, the room was lovely and perfect for a short 5 day itinerary. We really enjoyed the food at the palace and crossings! We had the premium beverage package and ...

My family and I were on the 5-day Caribbean cruise to Key West, Nassau, Great Stirrup Cay and Grand Bahamas travelling on the Norwegian Sky. We returned on January 29 of this year. I just wanted to share some of our overall impressions of this cruise. The day we boarded in Miami, the registration process was straightforward and because we arrived early, it didn’t take too long. We found out ...

This is our 2nd NCL cruise and have been greatly satisfied with both cruises. Was looking to visit Key West on our own but when we saw this cruise went there, we booked this. The value for this trip is amazing. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. especially since you leave on a Friday and come back on a Wednesday avoiding the weekend traffic. The ship is a smaller ship but it is ...

5 Day cruise for my husband's 50th birthday. Thought we would try NCL because of the cost and dates we wanted to cruise. Itinerary wasn't a concern because we had to been to all the stops except NCL's private island. We have sailed on Carnival, RC, Princesses and Celebrity so we have experienced several different lines. Arrived at the port a hour later than boarding time and had no issues ...

I was in 4219, the ocean view stateroom was fairly nice, minus the stained orange rather then grey carpet and broken chips on the sink area of what looked like someone tried carving into it with a sharp object, likely a knife. The person who tidied my room Kept it such except I didn’t like how he always left the toilet seat up and open. On a ship that moves and rocks I felt that was unhygienic. He ...

My partner and I decided to go on a 4 day Bahamian Norwegian Sky Cruise. It was a first time experience for both of us experiencing Norwegian, and I honestly would give it 3 out of 5 stars. Rooms: We stayed in stateroom #4015. DO NOT PICK THIS ROOM (if you are on Norwegian Sky and like to sleep). There is a disturbingly loud mechanical croaking noise that occurred constantly throughout the ...

I got told that this cruise line was the best and it’s true, embarkation and disembarkation was very smoth, no lines at all. We were celebrating our 22nd anniversary so we wanted it to be like our honeymoon. The cabin was perfect...ocean view good size, lots of room in the closet and good size shelves in the bathroom. Food was delicious, and everyday was like a different buffet specialty. We never ...
