Wonderful Experience!

Sail Date: March 07, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Variety of things to do on the ship. The staterooms were just fine - I was scared of the "smallness" that I've heard about and honestly - they were larger than I was expecting (we had an outside stateroom with a view).

Pros: Variety of things to do on the ship and at the ports

Cons: That it wasn't a longer cruise

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Food and Dining
Love freestyle...dress up or not...pick the restaurant of your choice!
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Ship Quality
Cayo Levantado (Samana), Dominican Republic
The horseback riding/hiking through the rain foest to the large waterfall that creates a natural swimming pool. WONDERFUL! You get to meet the local people and have a local as your helper. But, it's not for everyone - be physically fit to do it!
Don't Miss: the waterfall
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Good snorkeling, but high price to rent. If you have this equipment, bring it with you.
Don't Miss: snorkeling
Road Town, Tortola, B.V.I.
Virgin Gorda Baths and snorkel - must do!!! Again, be "fit" - as you climb through and over the rocks to reach the baths and area for snorkeling. Must be a good swimmer too.
Don't Miss: Virgin Gorda Baths
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Don't do the jet boat ride IF you have a boat and/or jet skiis. It was exciting for the folks who had never experienced such, but for us - we have a boat and jet skiis - it was overrated.
Don't Miss: The shopping at the Ammolite Gallery
