NCL Jan 2015 from MSY

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

We enjoyed this cruise very much. The food was out of this world and we always received excellent service. This is our 3rd trip on NCL on this route, we enjoy seeing the changes from cruise to cruise. Can't wait until our next cruise.

A Message to Future Travelers

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

If you like worm and pleasant weather and good entertainment this is the trip for you.

The ship's crew were the most friendly and seem to be proud of their employment.

I was impressed about the safety and cleanliness of the entire cruise.

The entertainment was spectacular and better than then found on other cruises I have experienced.

A fun trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

The highlight of this trip are the ports. We went snorkeling in Cozumel (but got stung by jelly fish, and frankly there are much better places to snorkel like Hawaii), cave tubing in Belize which was very fun and began with a $5 coconut full of rum, ziplining in Roatan which was an incredibly beautiful place, and Mayan ruins tour in Costa Maya.  I am glad we did a tour at the last stop, because I would have gone bananas if I were trapped in the overpriced little cruise terminal shopping area.  There is no place walking distance from the cruise terminal, so do yourself a favor and take a tour.

The cruise offered very good entertainment, my favorite being the incredibly talented magician and the aerialist acrobats.  Our room attendant did a great job.  Only complaint would be the service and food quality in the main dining rooms.  I have been on several of the other big cruise lines, and they are all far superior in service and food quality.  I did not go to the specialty restaurants- I hope they were better.

West Caribbean Seven Day

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

We enjoyed our cruise in spite of cool, cloudy weather. The ship is well designed with a good theater and good dining venues. Food quality and service  was the best we have experienced in our 12-13 cruises. Show quality was very, very good. The ship handles docking, embarkation, and dis-embarkation very well. Our balcony stateroom on deck 11 was more spacious than we have found on our other cruises and had a full bath with tub shower. The balcony was large enough to sit out and put our feet up and relax in the balmy air. We used our balcony more on these cruise than we have on any previous cruise. Our cabin steward was courteous and responsive- a very likeable woman. The crew, especially in food service, has a high percentage of Filipinos; who were very outgoing and warm; a great group. We like the freestyle cruise format a lot. Other cruise lines should embrace this approach. We always thought the pseudo-formality imposed by other lines as inappropriate for a relaxed vacation.

For my 1st cruise, exceeded my expectations

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jan 04, 2015

Perfect coordination of booking, checking in at port, embarking, dining and shows, excursions and arriving back.

Cozumel horseback riding trail with some Mayan ruins and stopped for lunch at beautiful Ecolounge beach

Belize stop for strolling

Roatan, Honduras stop at West Bay, Tabayana Beach for awesome snorkeling

Costa Maya for beachside lounging near Senor Frogs and watched dolphins right there at resort on shore

Happy

Nice Cruise!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jan 04, 2015

Overall the Cruise was good.  The food was excellent even the buffets. This particular sailing was not at max capacity so there were no lines for anything.  The shows were very good and the service was excellent.  Good crew staff except in the main dining rooms.  Except for one night, the servers appeared to be doing a job they didn't seem to enjoy.  We were in a mini suite that was extremely small so we would have been better off paying for an oceanview.   We had fun!!

Norwegian Dawn

The food was not that good. The entertainment was good but NOT APPROPRIATE for young children due to the fact that the young ladies butts hanging out and very provocative movements and dress.

NCL Dawn

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jan 04, 2015

Had a balcony suite, mattresses need to be replaced.  Room huge, bathroom biggest on any ship I have sailed on.  Not too sure I liked open dining as the food was not up to other cruise ships.  Younger crowd which was nice.  Entertainment good.

Popular tips for Norwegian Dawn.


Don't pay extra for a mini suite, they were not roomy enough. The buffets were better than on most other Ships in the same class

Reservations for restaurants will save you time! No need to bring hair dryer because there is one in the staterooms. Plenty of towels in bathroom as well as pool beach towels given to you at the pool.

Enjoyed breakfast as well as dinner in the dining room
