March 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Dawn
My husband and I loved the cruise, however we would not go again during spring break! We will go again at a different time. :)
The dining experiences were pretty good and found most food on the buffet excellent! Our favorite open dining room was the Venetian ~ loved the atmosphere. The Aqua was nice too.
Our room porter/server was exceptional! His name was Alvin and he was the best!! Very attentive, helpful and excellent work ethic. He was always smiling and friendly.
The ship was pretty and very clean. We enjoyed the promenade deck, however the people smoking just outside the door was annoying. Did not like having to walk through a gauntlet of smoke to go outside :( We felt like there was less "lounging" areas on the top deck compared to our cruise on the Carnival Ecstasy. I always went to the very front or back of the ship to lay out in order to avoid the loud music around the pool area.
The entertainment was excellent and loved ALL the shows and games in the Spinaker Lounge.
Our choice of shore excursions were perfect! All well worth the price and we booked through the cruise line only. The West Bay Kayak and Snorkel excursion was terrific and would highly recommend it as well as the Cave Tubing and Zip Line in Belize. So much fun!
I will try the patch behind the ear for our next cruise. I had a few bouts of motion sickness during the week, but not too severe.
