This was our first cruise on NCL, having cruised six previous times, once on Princess and five on Royal Caribbean. The concept of "free-style" was a joke, we could not get reservations for when we wanted them in the dining rooms, so we would wait 30-45 minutes to be seated. Dining service was spotty, servers seemed way overworked so we felt bad asking for something. Food was mediocre. We paid $100 for soda cards and the bar staff almost rolled their eyes when we would ask for one.

Pros: Entertainment

Cons: Food, charging extra for EVERYTHING, pushing you to buy

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? No.
