When we got on the boat it took forever for us to get all of our luggage. The cruise staff wasn't all that friendly, just putting on smiles because it was part of their uniform. They layout of the boat wasn't user friendly. It was very hard to get to the kids area. Not all elevators went to all floors so it was easy to get lost. When it came to the morning of the excursions, the organization was really unorganizated. they would tell you to wait in your room then another staff member would say to meet up on the 9th floor, then a third staff member would say to go back downstairs to the 5th floor. We went to an island near Samana, and the ride there was fast and sprayed water all over everyone. Everyone's clothes were all wet and so was the bags that held camera's and other items. it was a miserable ride. I probably won't be going on this boat again!!

Pros: The ability to eat whenever!!

Cons: Lack of organization and unfriendly staff!!

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? No.
