Sail Date: November 01, 2007
Ship: Norwegian Dawn
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

The ship was well kept, cleanliness wise, but not one of the more elaborately decorated. That was not important to me. The cleanliness was, however, very important.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food selections were mundane. It seemed the same foods were always served in the buffett. The dinner selections were sparce but flavorful. Enjoyed the freestyle dining option.


3 out of 5
The shows were very good and the players quite talented.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Most staff members were considerate and welcoming. However, one of our room stewards was not very willing to do anything above and beyond. He would complain and make excuses. He definately had an "attitude" and should maybe consider another line of work. He was definately not customer service oriented!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
As mentioned before, ship was clean and seemed well maintained in public areas. Our balconey seemed a little dirty. The layout was good. Getting to things seemed pretty easy as far as to dinner, shops and off the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Room was clean except last day on ship. Our "make room up" tab got cleared on the door and switched to "do not disturb". When we got back from shore, room was the way we had left it. Something should be done about the accessability of those "tabs" to the general public walking by who can turn them around for a joke.

Pros: The stateroom on this ship was well laid out and the bathroom, though small, was very easy to use. Also, I enjoyed the freedom of the freestyle dining.

Cons: There didn't seem to be enough of a variety of food selection and the day at Great Stirrup was cancelled.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
