Family Suite perks not worth the extra $
Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review to Bermuda
Ship: Norwegian Dawn
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Review SummaryCONS: Water turned off twice both times during a shower covered in soap- was given two bottles of room temp water to rinse off with each time...
Toilets stopped flushing first day in port interesting with five people in a room...
Was scolded by suite concierge for asking for an iron at 9:05 when the delivery service ends at 9 "I'll get it this one time but next time be aware of the schedule"
Interrupted at EVERY meal by people trying to push specialty restaurants
Traveling with a child who expected a towel animal (we saw them in other suites) asked our steward three times he promised each time make one and never did...
Signed child up for late night child care which was cancelled at he last min because only one other child signed up and that was not enough to warrant the staff staying ruined our dinner and show plans they called us at 10:30 asking us to pick him up immediately when we arrived at the kids klun they all started clapping as if to say finally which made us feel like jerks! - also signed child up for specialty Kids Klub dinner when we showed up at the drop off time we were told it had been moved to an hour earlier and they forgot the call peoples rooms to let them know...they stated they only realized when two kids showed up and they thought it was weird but too late to fix it...
The wonderful Chocolate buffet once held in the main dinning room which was a sight to behold was moved to the regular cafeteria buffet and was sad to say the least...
Only two working female toilets at the pool area- I suspect lots of peeing in the pool was going on with the waiting line at the toilets
People need to be cut off BEFORE they stat puking on the pool deck, spinnakers lounge or in front of the elevator!!!
Buffet meals were tired and many were obvious concoctions of yesterdays left overs- do not eat the previously powdered scrambled eggs take a few extra min to have eggs made fresh at the omelet station
Second City's comedy routine (other than the improve) was word for word the same routine I saw on my cruise last year...Seriously??
PROS: Island was beautiful, pool bar staff were very friendly and attentive, pool was crowed at times but we always found chairs and tables when we wanted one, Aqua, Bamboo, Venetian and Cagney's (if you have a suite take advantage of the breakfast and lunch options here) were delicious!!
