Norwegian Dawn

November 2015 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western

Great family cruise!

We cruised Thanksgiving week with two young children.  The Dawn is a lovely ship and just the right size for us.  We had two connecting balcony rooms on the 10th floor.  Our room steward was fabulous!  The Dawn has really nice kids amenities including a fabulous kids club!   We enjoyed breakfast and lunch daily at the buffet, and the kids liked the children's buffet area with small tables.  The dinosaur pool in the back of the ship was also a big hit and provided hours of entertainment.  The dinosaur pool however is not near any drink/bar service, and no adult seating.  We preferred the Aqua dining room over the Venetian as we found the staff to be friendlier with a more intimate atmosphere.  The food was very good, both in the buffets and dining rooms.  We had the unlimited drink package.  Most bar service was fine except for the pool bar which was hit or miss.  We really enjoyed our week and are booked again on the Dawn for next Thanksgiving.

Haply's Tips

Belize City, Belize - Hate the tendering process in Belize. Hopefully will be at the private island next year.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - Go into town (take the $ 3 trolley at the end of the port). You can walk along the Melacon (beach walkway) and find several restaurants/beach clubs to hang out at. Very safe and reasonable. Not built-up and more of a rustic feel. Had a wonderful beach day!
Norwegian Dawn Norwegian Dawn - Take time to explore the ship when you first arrive. We found a lot of neat bars, etc. later in the cruise. Make reservations for the specialty restaurants early as the popular times will be taken quickly.
New Orleans, Louisiana - Enjoy New Orleans. Many kid-friendly activities also such as the Louisiana Children's Museum, Audubon Zoo (with a great lazy river/water park in the summer), City Park, Aquarium of the Americas.
