A great cruise for Latitudes members

Sail Date: March 11, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The layout of the ship was confusing. In order to access the main dining, The Venetia, we had to go to the 7th floor via elevator and walk down half a flight to get to the main entrance. In order to access the Internet cafe, it was necessary to go to the 8th deck, and walk UP a half flight. This was troublesome for people with mobility problems.
The ship did have 11 restaurants. Four or five of them had surcharges, but these were minimal.
The ship was very large, and the common areas were also large/

Pros: perks for being latitudes members

Cons: layout of ship

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
We had a larger inside cabin, and the bathroom was good size, with a large shower with a door, but we had minimal drawer space. There was a mini refrigerator but this was useless, as it was packed with mini bar items we did not use. (Too expensive) Our cabin was located beneath the Aqua dining room, which was a problem at midnight (every night of the trip) when they ran the dishwasher.
Service and Staff
Ship Quality
One of the ladies room had an out of order sign on a stall for the entire trip.
Some of the towels on the pool deck were worn thin, and tattered.
Food and Dining
The food was very good, and the selection was good too. We graviated toward the
Aqua restaurant... better servie and hotter hot food.
George Town, Grand Cayman
7 mile beach
Don't Miss: 7 mile beach
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
The pier and area whee the ship docked were so unpleasant we did not even venture off the ship
Cozumel, Mexico
Beaches, and the food on the beaches
Don't Miss: Paradise Beach
Belize City, Belize
We took a cab to the Cucumber Beach.... it cost us $5.00 each to use the beach and all the amenities on the beach for the whole day
Don't Miss: Cucumber beach
