semi good cruise

Sail Date: January 28, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

this was our second time sailing with the dawn, we give it an overall rating of 6 out of ten due to the lack of activities, and also the prices on the alcohol was outrageous, drinks were very expensive and very very waterdown. they also need an inside pool for the cold and windy days that the outside pool in not available

Pros: the staff service in outstanding

Cons: in the past the spa pool was available to all guest, now we had to pay 90.00 pp to use it the activities were not the same as our last cruise we had so much fun

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Ship Quality
we were very impressed with the cleaning and sanitazing in the cruise.
Food and Dining
the freestyle cruise is the best, we had choice of the best restaurant, to the buffet it was all very good
Cabin / Stateroom
we had a mini suite it was very comfortable for the two of us, we also had a mini bar in the room with outrageous prices. we were never told that the first bottle of water and the perrier water was complementary. we never use it since it was $4.75 just for a simple bottle of water
Service and Staff
outstanding, our complements to the whole staff
the evening shows at the stardust were amazing, we were bored during the day when we were out at sea on cold days
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
we did not an excursion booked, very scary when ventured out by our selfs, if anything I recommend an excurtion, we heard great things about it. The woodwork in roatan is amazing
Belize City, Belize
as soon as we got off the ship into the port we were runned over by men fighting each other for our attention, "terrible" we just wanted a ride to the beach the wanted $60 pp they went as low a 40 "not" we finally found Darwin out of the way, what a nice man he took us to cucumber beach for the day and picked us up for just 30 for both of us.
Don't Miss: cucumber beach man made beach with restaurant beautiful
Cozumel, Mexico
we booked the jeep and snorkel excuesion, we all had our own jeeps that was fun, they took us to a small resort area to relax or snorkel we opted to snorkel but it not a good experience trying to get into the water walking over the coral, they need a different set up for that it really was slippery and my husband was cut by the coral, two other elderly people fell right on the coral they were not able to participate, the crew did not seem to care.
Don't Miss: I don't recomment this excursion
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
the only thing I will rate the best was swimming with the dolphins amazing experience. Dunns fall beautifull but after paying 120.00 pp to do both and then getting haggled to buy water shoes and lockers it was too much. Hated that experince nice people but pushy pushy it's all about how much can we make from the tourist!!! if I was asked if I wanted illegal drugs one more time I was going to loose it.
Don't Miss: the dolphing show
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
hated tenderin, there was nothing on the island, lots of bugs I was eaten up by sand fleas. not enough lounge chair it was terrible
Don't Miss: nothing
George Town, Grand Cayman
beatuful port, this is how it should always be when you walk into the ports town. Can't say enough good things about it, although it was sunday and a lot of the shops were close, is understandalbel we rented a scooter and rode the end point beautiful
Don't Miss: you'll have a nice time with anything you choose to do
