Review Summary

The overall idea of "Free Style Cruising" is a good one, but the execution was lacking. I think that with a more experienced and perhaps better trained crew, it could be done very well. The ship itself was modern, very clean and one of the smoothest ships we've ever been on. We loved the itinerary, just the right combination of port calls and sea days. Overall the cruise was enjoyable and relaxing, but nothing that would make us choose NCL over other cruise lines we've sailed on.

Ports Of Call

King's Wharf, Bermuda

This was our first time in Bermuda and we loved it. If you're interested in a tour of the island we highly recommend the taxi tour that the ship offered. Our driver was very personable and having lived on the island for his whole life gave us a lot of insight into live on the island.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas

3 out of 5
Nice island but not quite up to the level of other cruise lines.

Pros: The ship had just come out of dry dock and was in fantastic condition. Also the number and diversity of the restaurants was very good.

Cons: The overall level of staff service was not up to par with some of the other cruise lines we've sailed with.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
