First-time cruisers review of the NCL Sky, Part 3. This review was provide by Lauren AKA my Sister-in-Law:
Day 4 Great Stirrup Cay
This was theeeeeee best stop by faaaaaaar! I wish we would have stayed here the whole time! This was NCL’S private island. It was beautiful! We had breakfast, then got on their smaller boat that took us to the island. I was expecting it to be like survivor over there, but boy was I wrong. When we got over there, I saw restrooms, a huge buffet, servers everywhere, lounge chairs everywhere, beach volleyball courts, fruit stands, and even wheel chairs made especially for the sand. Drink stands and a bar were also about… We played volleyball for about 3 hours and were pooped! Had some fruit, or a whole lot of fruit! We, floated in the beautiful water, which really surprised me, because there were hardly any waves. It was like floating in a pool, but not. This was the main place where I was like “we have got to bring Payton here!” There was snorkeling offered here all day, there was also parasailing going on. We didn’t have time to do either of those things because we chose to play volleyball, but there were lots of people who did. I’m gonna parasail next time! I can’t stress enough just how much I loved this island, and how much I wish there was more time spent there. This was our last day on the cruise, and it was a great last memory.
Got back on the ship, got ready and ate at another specialty rest. it was italian. $10 a person. Didnt care for it too much. I liked it okay, hubby didnt. Hit the casino again, we were up then we were down, all over again. Some people never learn! LOL! We were sad the trip was over, but soooo glad to be going home to see the kids again.. I was getting a hole in my heart from seeing all the kids on the ship and saying aaaawwwe… I miss the kids. It was late after the casino, and we had our lounge food and went to bed. We woke up and had our last breakfast on the ship, and went back to the real world. I feel like I have left out so much, even though I have written so much and probably bored you all. NCL had tons of other things going on on the boat all the time. There seemed to be something for everyone. We just chose to do the same things all the time. Eat, go to the pool, go to the casino, eat eat eat sleep. go to the casino, eat pool. eat. But there was plenty else to choose from. There were comedy shows, movies, a club, nintendo wii… just all kinds of stuff. And maybe we will look into that stuff next time, since there will definitely be a next time.
