A Smashing Time!

Sail Date: July 05, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Large, clean ship with tons of amenities and things to do. Warm, helpful international staff, always willing to go the extra mile. Nice shows, good music playing at all times and the freestyle aspect of the ship was great!

Pros: Excellent, helpful and cheerful staff

Cons: Not the best weather-oh well!

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Service and Staff
Best part of the ship-they were all fabulous!
Ship Quality
Tons of bathrooms everywhere, always clean and neat. Not the easiest to find your way around, but maybe we were just bad with directions!
Food and Dining
It seemed like the food was great, plentiful and well-presented, but my family eats kosher so most of the options were not ok for us to eat. The kosher menu is sparse to say the least-most of what's offered is re-heated airplane food, but the staff was willing to do whatever we needed to make our dining experience pleasurable
Cabin / Stateroom
We had the cheapest rooms, no windows and 3 people. I'm not gonna lie-the rom was tiny! But, you get what you pay for! We saw more expensive rooms that were gorgeous and much bigger!
Didn't like the comedian or the singers that much, but the entertainment was varied and really put on nice shows. Get there pretty early if you want good seats-fills up fast!
Children's Programs
Didn't utilize them, but the kids always seemed to be entertained and happy and the teen schedule looked awesome-I was jealous I was too old to attend!
King's Wharf, Bermuda
The weather wasn't great and stuff there is super expensive, but we had a great time. We didn't do the ship's excursions(again, very expensive) so we made our own itinerary and found our way around the island. 3 days was plenty there as there is not so much to do in Bermuda-just enough!
Don't Miss: Haagen Dasz in the port's mall!
