Norwegian Dawn

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.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - seem to be a situation of "build it and they will come". not much natural attraction nearby, but they've done a nice job building new infrastructure, buses/tours to ruins, and the waterpark. my guess is that this stop will continue to improve over time. bring bug spray for the ruins. if you go to the waterpark, be assertive - ask for extra chairs, etc. zip-line and waterslides are a lot of fun. teenagers enjoyed this very much.
Cozumel, Mexico - we've been here so many times, we've run out of things to do. a day at paradise beach was excellent and relaxing; teenagers loved it too
New Orleans, Louisiana - if you have young children, don't waste your time here. dirty, dangerous and not a lot of fun.
Belize City, Belize - beautiful rain forest and unique underground cave lagoons. be sure to bring bug spray
Norwegian Dawn Norwegian Dawn - they do a lot with little. not much for teens to do...just meet up and hang out. 18-20 year olds can drink wine/beer with parental consent. that's what most of them did each night. we've taken norwegian twice and both times there were a ton of teenagers; great for us....but maybe not for you.
