Review Summary

I was mainly looking forward to "free style cruising"-enjoy the ship and activities at your own pace. However, that translated into big lines everywhere. It turned out that most people like to dine at the same time, so that meant longer wait at the "included" retaurants. Staff around ship is very friendly and helpful. Compared to other cruises, it was very expensive onboard.

Food at the included restaurants was average and same menu everyday-very disappointed. Specialty restaurants-Italian, Steak House and Japonese were excellent, but required added charge, usually $25 per person.

Maritime museum is a must see. The island is absolutely beautiful. Easy to get around by bus or ferry. But sometimes long wait for ferry.

Pros: specialty restaurants food was excellent

Cons: the extra charges

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? No.
