My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our five night cruise which we booked to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The two ports of call were a lot of fun (Grand Cayman and Cozumel). The shopping director was excellent and so helpful with information about where to shop, coupons, references, and freebies, and where to find specific items. The entertainment on the ship was outstanding. (comedian, Second City, magician, show band, bands, shows, acrobats) We also enjoyed the magician's talk about memory skills. We attended art auctions for the first time and purchased a couple of starter pieces. We used the gym and attended two yoga classes.

Pros: Freestyle Cruising

Cons: nothing

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Ship Quality
Nicely maintained.
Food and Dining
The quality of the food was very good. We ate at the Venetian and the Aqua main dining rooms as well as at the Garden Cafe. We really like the flexibility in the dining options.
We did not go to a specialty restaurant this time. We did try, but too late, to book a meal at the French place but they were full.
Cabin / Stateroom
This was the first time we have booked a balcony cabin and it was great. I highly recommend the balcony. Our cabin was well maintained.
Service and Staff
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. One person did give me incorrect info about the disembarkation process but it was no big deal.
Excellent. The only disappointment was that our glass bottom boat excursion was canceled due to some problem with the boat.
