My wife and I set sail from Miami to visit a few islands of The Bahamas with Norwegian, it was November of 2018 and although the tail end of the hurricane season in the Caribbean, we did get a bit more than a breeze.
That meant we did spend a little more time onboard, losing a call to port. The crew and fellow passengers kept the party alive onboard and the whole trip was a smashing success.
Scavenger hunt: Picture of you wrestling with a crew member...
The Sky isn't Norwegian's newest and certainly not fanciest ship, but she does have a lot of character and the whole premise of a short, beverage package inclusive weekend trip to Nassau and Great Stirrup Caye is truly irresistible.
We had the best time returning to the same seats at bars & restaurants onboard, which was pretty easy to do because it was only a short sailing. It's amazing how quickly the staff learns a favorite drink or dessert, however!
More than anything, we just plain had fun on the ship. Scavenger hunts, trivia night, a silent art auction, and plenty of people to meet who had the same ideas about making the most of their vacation.
The crew are so friendly and probably put up with more than their fair share of jubilant passengers given the freedom with which the beverages packages are applied haha but wow do they work hard to keep everyone smiling!
