A fabulous cruise

Sail Date: March 28, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

I have never taken a cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines before but I certainly will in the future. The Ship was immaculate, the service was outstanding, the food was delicious and the entertainment was the best.

Pros: The ship

Cons: All the specialty restaurants required a cover charge.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was of top quality. It was very clean. Our stateroom was on the 11th deck and we were close to everything.
Food and Dining
We ate in the main dining room and the buffet. There was so much variety to choose from. It was attractively prepared and displayed and it was delicious. We are vegetarians and had many choices. We did not eat in the specialty restaurants.
Cabin / Stateroom
The stateroom was small but well appointed and comfortable. The steward kept it in pristine condition.
Service and Staff
Our room steward was very good. The cruise director was outstanding.
The Jean Ann Ryan dance troup presented 3 shows and they were wonderful. The rest of the entertainers were very good.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
The Castaway Girl Sail and Snorkel was the highlight excursion. We sailed to a small off-shore island and then snorkeled in a beautiful coral reef. On the 45 minute sail back the crew kept us supplied with delicious run punches.
Road Town, Tortola, B.V.I.
We took the Sage Mountain Hike and Beach excursion. The open air taxi ride on the narrow, windy road to Sage Mountain was "exhilarating." We hiked in the Sage Mountain National Park and had wonderful views of the port. Then we snorkeled in a beautiful bay.
Cayo Levantado (Samana), Dominican Republic
We went on the Hike, Bike and Kayak excursions and it was nice. We took an open air "taxi" through the countryside and then took a bike ride and a hike. We ended with a swim and a kayak trip on a beautiful tropical beach.
