March 2015 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western
This was our first time with the NCL and the casual style of cruising. We found the ship clean, comfortable and welcoming. The crew and staff were exceptionally pleasant and accomodating. The dining experience was what we had hoped for except for the method of seating and making reservations. We prefer to early and late assigned seatings with the same group of table mates. As a couple we like meeting and getting to know new people during dinner and to becoming more friendly and familiar with our wait persons. We enjoyed seeing all the sites on the ship, participating in the various activities such as the contests, dances, and relaxing near the pool. We also thought the entertainment was exceptional. The performers, from singers, dancers, magicians, comedians and bands, were the highlight of our on ship enjoyment. We did think the auction for the framed and unframed paintings was unrealistic and thought some of the bids were made by shills. Our off ship experiences were another highlight of our cruise from beach fun to zip lining. Overall we gave the cruise experience on NCL Dawn an 8 out of 10 and would do it again.
