December 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Dawn
They do a lot with a little
small ship without all the bells and whistles. but they are good at making the most of it. greetings after port days are nice - cool wet towels and refreshing drinks. afternoon pool deck sail away parties/BBQ were great. Main dining room service was spotty, also - be prepared to wait for dinner every night for about 30 minutes. desserts were awful, but main dish and appetizer were good with nice variety. not a luxury trip, but excellent value for the money. since gratuity for beverages/dinner are included automatically,the service was less than expected. many rude bar staff and dining room servers. took on average 15 minutes to get a second glass of wine at dinner. the best aspects of this cruise were: itinerary, excursions, lots of teens, excellent embark/disembark organization.
