Norwegian Dawn

11 Night Western Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)

Sail Date: March 11, 2007

Ship: Norwegian Dawn

Cabin Type: Inside

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Review Summary

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/

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.

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.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
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.
