10 Night Southern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 04, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Dawn
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
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.

Pros: Very friendly and helpful crew

Cons: port stays too short

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
