Norwegian Dawn

March 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Dawn

Great Cruise, but Freestyle Dining is a Fiasco

The ship was great, shore excursions were really great, the entertainment was excellent, the buffet was great, the cabin steward was outstanding. The Dining Room experiences were terrible. I guess freestyle dining, where you have to wait in line every night for dinner with a different waiter each night, is not for us. We much prefer a standard seating time (e.g., 6:00) with a few other guests at the same table every night. The waiters were all very good, but the wait each night was absurd - even at 8:00. Moreover, the dining rooms ("Aqua" and "Venitian") never seemed to be open for lunch  when we wanted to eat-  closed for an art show or only open for 1 and a half hours. We would probably consider Norwegian again, but other passengers seemed to agree that something needs to be done about the Freestyle dining.
