December 2013 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western
We were a party of 4 and enjoyed spending Christmas together. The cruise was our way of accomplishing it. The food was mediocre at best, and we were not served the food we ordered. The waiters weren't interested in pleasing us, but were trying to hurry us through our meals in order to seat the next guests. We had one superb server, and wished we had been at her table every night. The choices of food were not varied enough either. The ship was very noisy, and we couldn't find any quiet place on the ship where we could sit and talk with each other except the library, which is an inside room with no view of the ocean. The music on the deck around the pool area was played at the loudest deceibel possible and all the time. There was one server who was a jewel and really took care of us. I saw the room steward once briefly the day we boarded and the other 3 of my party never saw him. We would not go on Norwegian Cruise Lines again. Cruises Only booked us on shore trips which we couldn't use because of time restraints; the early one we couldn't get off the ship in time to make it and the afternoon ones we were told that the ship would leave without us because we couldn't get back in time. We will also NEVER use Cruises Only again.
