Probably won’t do another cruise because of the being trapped and feeling rushed to get back to the ship on time

Overall, I truly enjoyed my first cruise ever. I can now say that I am apart of the Norwegian family and I will be back.

Excellent first cruise

Jan 27th, 2020

For my first cruise, and the price I paid, I think I got every dollar’s worth of my money and then some. I don’t think there’s a better value out there. There are better options, but if you’re not sure how you’ll like cruising, this is the place to start

Best cruise ever!

Jan 26th, 2020

I had such a great time I’m already looking for another one Solo cruising has been a revelation for me as a vacation where I can do as much or as little as I need in the moment without sacrificing any of the fun????

Norwegian Sky Experience - Don't Look for the Bells and Whistles

Jan 21st, 2020

First I will say that this is definitely a "booze cruise". I have cruised on several of the other lines many times but this was my 1st Norweigan cruise. We booked using a promo which stated that our package included the drink package but upon arriving on the cruise, we were told that it wasn't included in our package and they were unsure of the promotion we were using to book as it had changed since the time we booked and they had no access to previous promotions. So I suggest that you read everything when booking and make copies immediately. Next, be aware that the children's program is very limited, as I believe they cater more to adults and adult activities. They group the children in age groups, which is good, but for children that are more mature, they will get board and the cruiseline does not allow the parent the opportunity to approve moving the child to the next level based on their judgement. For example, my daughter was in the 6yo-9yo class. She will be 10yo in 1 month. She wanted to do video games, etc and the bigger kids games but had to settle with arts and crafts with the 6yo. During our Nassau port, we did the swim with the pigs excursion. Upon returning to the ship, we found out after returning to our cabin that the ship lost water for almost an entire day. This was unacceptable as we had been in contact with live animals and needed to wash. After 3 hours of reboarding the ship, all they could offer us was a bottle of water per passenger to wash. My 9yo daughter ended up with a rash that I believe came from her inability to shower immediately upon return. Hearing that this has happened before on this ship would have definitely detered me from booking this ship. As a more experienced cruiser, my expectations are a little high so I personally am not sure that I will book another Norweigan Cruise. But it is a ok for a new cruiser or those just wanting to do a "friends" getaway and not looking for many frills.
