11 Night Exotic Southern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip) Sail Date: April 23, 2007 Ship: Norwegian Dawn Cabin Type: Suite Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 8 years ago
Having cruised with NCL and 3 of the other lines I was very disappointed in the Dawn. The set up is very difficult to minuever. It seems every thing that used to be included, there is now extra charges for. They are consentrating so much on specialty restaurants they are neglecting the quality in the regular non pay dining rooms. Having to pay for indoor pool is outrageous.
Food and Dining

Overall quality of food was poor, seemed buffet never changed, good variety of restaurants but cover charges are steep considering meals are included. Husband has dietary restrictions and could not get a meal without gravy or butter sauces. Food was inconsistant. Ordered chicken breast got thighs, Do like the Free style dining

Have to say the entertainment in the Stardust Theater was excellent, the singers in Dazzle and the Java Cafe were terrific.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
Staff was friendly, and helpful, some seemed embaressed by some of the charges and restrictions.

The Dawn is layed out confusing, and some times you couldn't get there from here. It was clean and decorated nicely but it is beginning to wear. Chairs on balcony ripped and bent, railings pealing ect.
Cabin / Stateroom

Was on deck 11 in a mini suite it was cofortable, kept clean, but size wise it was about the size of balcony room on another line in the same size ship.
