Ship is fine.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food quality poor; quality control is very bad; service at the Garden is pretty awful; staff and sous chef attitude horrible; one vinegar and oil service for both sides of the Garden; running out of spaghetti and not wanting to get more; out of garlic to cook and not bothering to get more; lack of enthusiasm from ceasar salad preparer; very little quality control
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Comfortable, clean rooms
Service and Staff
Even with extra tips, staff was still lax in getting ice for the stateroom, NCL staff is definitely not going above and beyond like they used to
