A sparkling return after a summer makeover
Norwegian Sky , launched in 1999, underwent a complete refurbishment in June 2009 enhancing the guest experience for its popular three and four-night Bahamas itineraries from Miami.
The NCL ship, which entered the Miami mini-cruise market in 2008, has received enhancements to its public areas including a larger dance floor in Dazzles Bar and Nightclub, the refurbishment of existing staterooms and suites plus the addition of three new staterooms.
Says gneral NCL manager Stephen Park: “Norwegian Sky is great for customers looking for mini-breaks with guaranteed sun and is easily combined with a stay in Miami or Florida. These short itineraries are an excellent way for families, friends and couples to test the water with cruising, and with such low prices they offer exceptional value.”
Norwegian Sky’s total refurbishment includes:
The four-day Bahamas cruises call at Grand Bahamas Island, Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay, NCL’s private island in the Bahamas. On Fridays, the ship sails a weekend getaway three-day Bahamas itinerary with all-day stops in Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay, returning to Miami on Monday mornings.
