CharlesRoss's Past Cruises

Norwegian Dawn

March 2017 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western

Never again during Spring break

As usual, the Dawn had wonderful entertainment, great dining and dedicated staff. I made the mistake of going during Spring break, over half of the passengers were under 21 and a lot more were just a little over 21. Drinking was the only thing many were interested in and so their behavior was horrible. loud vulgar language and even some fighting. My mistake, I will check the calendar more carefully before going on any cruise from now on.

Norwegian Dawn

December 2015 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western

Carnival Triumph

November 2015 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Eastern

Carnival Triumph

October 2015 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Southern

Grand Princess

February 2015 - Grand Princess to Hawaii

Both good and not so good

Dining room service was slow and our waiter was not very friendly. The atrium always smelled of cigarette smoke from the casino. There was water leaking from the ceilings and the lights kept dimming in the dining room.  Floor tiles were loose in the food court. Our mattress needed to be replaced. 

On the positive side, the music and entertainment was the best I have seen on any cruise. The food in the food court was as good as any other cruise ship we have taken. The ship was on time at every port. The passengers were very elderly and so I don't recommend this cruise for younger couples.

CharlesRoss's Tips

Harvest Caye, Belize - I know NCL spent a lot building this perfect island but I actually preferred the real Belize, I probably will avoid this location on future cruises.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - Again, the area of the docking is all very commercial, spend $3 to ride down to the beach for a more authentic Mexican beach location.
Norwegian Dawn Norwegian Dawn - We like the size of the Dawn, not overwhelming and lots of dining choices. The entertainment is better than I have seen anywhere on any other ship.
Lahaina, Maui - This was our favorite island. I took the city bus for $2.00 to a nice beach.
Nawiliwili, Kauai - We took the free streetcar to shopping, and then took their tour and it was good.
Honolulu, Oahu - The free shuttle from Maui Divers was a waste of time, Burger King has free Wi-Fi.
Grand Princess Grand Princess - Passengers were elderly so if you want excitement or partying, this is not for you.
