nice itinerary

Sail Date: August 26, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship was still being renovated and some areas were closed. Wait until repairs are completed.
Dining room food has been severly limited and is pretty much the same every day. It seems they are limiting the main dining to force you into the pay specialty resaurants.

The selection in the buffets were good but still just a buffet.

The passangers drank A LOT and it was definately a casual and rowdy crowd.

Pros: crew was great

Cons: dining room food has deteriorated in both variety and quality

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Children's Programs
Our 14 year old enjoyed the cruise and teen center greatly.
Food and Dining
Have seen the quality and selection decline the last 3 years. This was my 6th NCL cruise and I am not sure I will go again with them.
Also there is no dress code enforced in the main dining rooms with people eating in beachwear even at night.
Ship Quality
They are very health conscious on NCL and the ship was very clean.
Cabin / Stateroom
Small and poorly arranged with the bed set against the desk so you had to climb over the bed.
Shower seems bigger but toilet area smaller.
Service and Staff
Very freindly crew overall although I did have words twice with 2 crewmembers with attitude.
This was better than past cruises with NCL and we enjoyed the entertainment very much.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
Been here several times before. Used to walk to snorkle beach and swim. New management and now you have to pay to use. I do not know if ther are any free beaches within walking distance any more. Good bus and water taxi schdules to get around the island.
