August 2015 - Norwegian Dawn to Bermuda
Our first cruise on the NCL Dawn was very disappointing (NEVER again)
My main complaints:
The wait staff was mediocre (because they are understaffed/overworked) Dinner in the Venetian dining room took over 3 hours, yucky, cold food, cold coffee, iced teas never refilled, dishes never cleared.
Room service now has a $7.95 service charge. (I've been cruising since 1986, first time I didn't try room service)
No clock in cabin.
Elevators smelled AWFUL.
Cheapest Bingo $39.99
My teens were bored without water slides.
Couldn't gamble in the casino (the second hand smoke wasn't worth it)
Breakfast Buffet had the same foods everyday (usually cold)
The GOOD parts:
BERMUDA (can't wait to go back)
Teppanyaki (everyone in our party LOVED it)
Our room steward Ricardo (very hardworking, polite and kind)
Our fellow passengers were very nice.
I might try NCL again, on one of their newer ships, in my opinion the Dawn wasn't worth the money spent, very disappointing!
