Norwegian Dawn

October 2016 - Norwegian Dawn to Hawaii

Nothing upscale about this cruise

Considering I had sailed on Norwegian Dawn a couple of years back I think it has gone downhill. I found the food in the restaurants to be quite disappointing, The buffet wasabi improvement. Iordered veal Oscar in the dining room, by the way both included restauransn have the same menu, was more like dog meat Oscar, mushy and no likeness to veal. As the week progressed and I tried of the entrees they only got worse. The safest thing to eat was the steak on the menu. I refuse to pay $30 up charge for a specialty restaurant with an added 18% service charge when I'm already being charged a service charge for the freestyle restaurants. We did try the Chinese restaurant which was included in the package and that was no better. And average cocktail was $15 with 18% service charge. The entertainment wash boring and the comedians were far from funny. Considering I have traveled on Princess and Celebrity in the past I think I will stick with Celebrity since it's only a couple of hundred dollars. In the long run you get more for your money and it is like night and day. Dinner dress was supposed to be business dress but they allowed people in wearing anything from shorts, t shirts, etc. Even didn't comment when one young woman say at the table next to us crossed legged!  Far from classy, we dressed as we would when dining at a nice restaurant at home.

Royal Princess

January 2016 - Royal Princess to Caribbean

Did not care for Royal Princess

I chose the Southern Caribbean cruise as there were three islands I have never visited. That being Grenada Dominica and Grand Turk. I like to get a birds eye view in the event I'd like to go back and spend a week there. Both Dominica and Granada were very poor and didn't seem as if there's much to do there other than sit on a beach. As for Grand Turk it was a waste of time, nothing there not even a town, there is a beach set up with entertainment and bar for cruise people to sit and spend the day.  I didn't need this  since I live on the beach in the States. As for the specialty and regular restaurants I was not thrilled, they all had the same menu so after a couple of days that got boring. When I tried to go to a specialty restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday we were turned away even though they were empty and said maybe they could find us a table with in 35 minutes, I reported this to guest services and to date have not heard back. I still prefer Celebrity out of all the cruise I have taken. I do and will plan on using again they were very helpful with with making all my plans.

New Orleans - French Quarter smelled out sewage and very dirty, don't consider eating there. Highly recommend visiting Garden District.
