a wonderful cruise

Sail Date: December 04, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Overall impression was fairly good. The freestyle dining seems to create lines during peak times which could last an hour or so. The music was too loud at the pool area which made it difficult to relax or even have a conversation some times. The atmosphere overall though was very good. Almost everyone we talked to were having a great time feeling pampered.

Pros: Very friendly and helpful crew

Cons: port stays too short

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Food and Dining
Salads were very good, always fresh, crisp and varied. The soups were fairly good with a few being very good. The main dishes had variety and great presentation but most of them could of had a little more flavor. Having said that I also realize that when feeding the masses it is better to keep flavors toned down and safe. However I found even the pay restaurant even played it safe. I would personally not use the pay restaurants again. French should be french and Italian, Italian
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Although we had an inside stateroom we were very comfortable and cozy. We always looked forward at the end of the day to retire to our room. It was always kept clean and ready for us. We found our location on the ship to be near perfect.
Service and Staff
Friendly and professional. Everyone was very helpful.
Great variety and quality.
