Great cruise

Sail Date: January 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Overall, the Dawn was a great experience. We loved the stops (Southern Caribbean) except Semana Dom. Rep. That stop needs some improvement but in time should be great.
The food was absolutely wonderful as well as the entertainment.
My sister bought an internet package (outrageous at $55 for 100 minutes!) but she was not allowed to use Skype. Thought that was VERY unfair. Also, the internet was very slow. At the per minute price, it should have been cheaper.

Pros: Destinations, dining experiences, entertainment

Cons: outdated electrical outlets, layout of ship, internet speed and limited use

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship very clean except around the pool. Straws, papers, debri was found several times. Overall, the ship was very clean.
Service and Staff
Wasn't impressed with guest services desk. First time I was disappointed with the cabin staff. We have always had a balcony in the past and this time we got a last minute interior room. We wondered if that was why we were essentially ignored. Not sure.
Food and Dining
Incredible food in cafe and dining rooms. Blue Lagoon was also great. Every meal on the ship was a great experience.
Cabin / Stateroom
Interior room but more than ample space
Lots of great choices for entertainment. Second City if fabulous. Jose and Patti are fantastic. Matt Baker is a great cruise director
