Well , I have travelled quite a lot in the last ten years and cruised a fair amount . I have been on Norwegian 3 other times I've been the pride of Hawaii , the Epic and the jewel ..so I know what to expect and I found the The Dawn to be disappointing . The bar staff ignored you , they also didn t communicate about port taxes , my bed was horrible very well used needed to be thrown out and the smoking on board not just in designated areas was awful . People could smoke in the promenade deck . I had a prepaid beverage package and compared to celebrity it was just okay ..we had one day to be tendered off ship and it was unorganized , no onecommunicated what was going on and didn't get off ship until 11:30 am . Shows were mediocre and entertainment on midship didn't take place til late afternoon ..I think the Dawn needs to step up ,not cheap down which is what I felt on this cruise..
