Average ship other Norweigian ship set up much better. Pool way too small.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Buffet line usually cold food, same thing served everyday, no variety. The best dessert on the cruise was ice cream. The chocolate dessert was served on the buffet line cafeteria style. On other Norwegian Ships it is done in a beautiful dining room, this ship does not know presentation. Freestyle dining, reserations recommened, but they would not take them from 6:30 to 8:30 it was a first come first serve in a few of the restaurants. The Dawn did not have good food.

Not a big variety, no basketball. If they did it was not advertised, we read the paper each day.
