Cruising at Norwegian Sky

We have been planning to go cruising to Bahamas but, it was always postponed. Just two weeks ago, when I checked the NCL site, I showed him the itinerary and he loves it. His daughter and her boyfriend loves the route too so; without any further discussion, we book it. In two days time, we boarded the Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL).It was gloomy and as you can see, the floors were wet. It was drizzling whole day but, it was not that cold. In fact, it was relaxing to stay outdoors than staying inside the rooms. We enjoyed roaming the ship and familiarized the facilities of Norwegian Sky. The picture above is poolside area located on the 11th Deck. It has 4 Jacuzzis.While waiting for the ship to sail away to Bahamas, everyone goes to the Garden Restaurant which is located on the 11th Deck. When we boarded the ship, we were immediately guided to the Garden Buffet on the Aft section of the ship. Oh yeah! The first hour was eating time while the crew prepares the rooms of the guests.
We boarded at 1PM and the ship was scheduled to leave Miami Port at 5PM. The activities started rolling in such as wine tasting and of course, the crew will really invite the guests to buy something. Guests like us started to wander the amenities while waiting for our rooms. We left our baggage at the baggage receiving area while we proceed to the Garden Buffet for lunch.As you can see, people started to wander the ship and take pictures and started making friends. I found two friends as a matter of fact and it was funny! I communicate through sign language because they can't speak English. They are Hispanic and an old couple an I had fun talking to them for four days. Anyway, you should socialize to enjoy the activities on the ship!Cruising at Norwegian Sky is the best because first of all, the crew is very friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and polite. 90% of the crew consists of Filipinos and the rest was from India and Malaysia. Our servers are mostly Filipinos and even though we already pay for the gratuity, we still give them tips every time they give us an excellent service. I just hope you do the same folks:-) $10-$20 is not that bad.
