The ship is very clean and well maintained. We were on Deck 11 and there were crew working on the pipes in the ceiling. Crew members were painting or varnishing the decks.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I liked the the freestyle cruising experience! There was a nice variety of the specialty restaurants. We went to The Bistro and it was wonderful!


5 out of 5
Nice variety of shows - comedy, magic, and variety! Wished the shows had been a little bit longer!

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The staff acknowledged you when they saw you and were friendly. There was only one instance in the Aquos Restaurant that our server went above and beyond. Her attentiveness was exceptional! I wonder if the base price of the cruise could have been raised to offset the cover charges to the specialty restaurants.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Public areas of the ship were very clean and easily accessible.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had an inside stateroom and the size was adequate. Could have used another area of drawers for storage. Two twin beds were made into a king bed that was very, very comfortable. We did have to ask the staff for a bar of soap and they never put any coffee packets by the coffee machine.

Pros: The iterary

Cons: Time spent waiting to embark the ship. The area in the cruise terminal was not very inviting.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
