Beautiful Ship

Sail Date: November 18, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The Ship was beautiful and very clean. The staff was amazing, always smiling, pleasant and helpful. I really like the freestyle cruising as it was not as regimented as others i have heard about. There were plenty of places to eat and the food presentation was awesome, but unfortunately the food was rather tasteless.
The entertainment was fantastic!!!

Pros: Freestyle cruising

Cons: Food

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Food and Dining
Good variety of places to eat but i found the food rather tasteless.
Ship Quality
Great ship!! Very clean and the decor is great. I had trouble finding my way around the ship, but that is because it is so big.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very comfortable and always spotless. The cabin was inside but we had comfortable room for two people.
Service and Staff
The best!
Always something great going on.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
If you like snorkeling then this is a good place. If not then there is nothing there. They basically dumped half the crew and all (2000) passangers onto this tiny island. It was so cramped you could not lay on the beach. They had small beach chairs to sit on but you could not lay because there were too many people in too little space.
Road Town, Tortola, B.V.I.
We did the Best of Tortola excursion and i would not recommend it. Complete waste of time and money. On a previous trip i did the Baths at Virgin Gorda and that is a MUST see!!
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Great shopping although did not like the store owners trying to drag you into every store. You can walk (20 mins) into Charlotte Amalie from the cruise ship. We picked up a local tour from here and it was great and much cheaper than the arranged tour through the ship.
Cayo Levantado (Samana), Dominican Republic
This was awesome. There is not much to do in Samana itself so this private island excursion was great and very good price also.
