Norwegian Dawn cruise

Sail Date: October 07, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

We have cruised 7-8 times, we love the experience each and every time. This cruise was no different, the ship is just beautiful, truly lovely. Very easy to navigate through the ship also.

Pros: Excellent service, terrific cruise director

Cons: Couldn't get reservations at specialty restaurants, food was good but not great/outstanding

Ship Quality
Exceptionally clean, always warned if area was 'wet' so you wouldn't fall. So happy with the layout of the ship, I was oriented within a few days. Elevators weren't functional all the time though.
Food and Dining
The overall quality of the food was very good, not great or outstanding. The amount of choices was great though. The freestyle cruising is outstanding.
Cabin / Stateroom
Excellent! Shower size is just great. The room steward(s) were very nice also.
Service and Staff
Everyone on board was very friendly and willing to help in anyway they could. The excursion staff really 'wowed' us with their ability to change an excursion on the spot and accomodate our needs. Jimmy ... the cruise director, what a terrific guy and his humor was just outstanding...made everything fun and informative.
The dancers were tremendous, the latin champions were exceptionally good and entertaining. Please don't bring on jugglers for adult entertainment.
Bar Harbor, Maine
A most wonderful port. The excursion was outstanding and the guide was very informative. The bus driver went very very fast though and I got a bit car sick.
Newport, Rhode Island
What can I say about this port....just outstanding! We could see how the other half lived...lives.
Don't Miss: 10 mile drive around the island, seeing the homes was just the very best!
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Loved this port, the bus being available throughout the day was outstanding. The bus guides were so interesting and informative also.
Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts
Clearly an outstanding port, very quaint and the excursion bus guide was outstanding.
