Worst Cruise Ever

Sail Date: May 01, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This cruise line focuses on getting more money out of its customers. The activities are terrible and any that you might be interested in will cost you money. Their idea of free activities include basketball, open chess play, visiting the library, and seminars pushing the activities you must pay for. Very disappointing and BORING.

I felt like every time I turned around another waitor was bringing me the wrong more expensive drink or shoving raffle tickets in my face trying to make money at the little free activities they had. You even have to pay for yoga and pilaties. Terrible. They only raffle away a hand full of prices after making thousands from the tickets.

The worst part, their ATM broke conveniently after we docked at the island. Problem? You MUST have cash to get off the dockyard. After blowing all of our cash in the casino out of pure boredom on the boat, we tried to get more before deboarding, little did we know.

Be ready to either spend a lot of money on board or just lay out in the sun if the weather permits it. If you have bad weather like us, you're in for a long trip.

Pros: Bermuda

Cons: The staff constantly trying to get more money out of you.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? No.

A couple of good shows, but don't expect them to start on time.
Ship Quality
Dirty used cups found under our bed and an old drink of soem kind left in the fridge from the last cruisers. Very gross.
Cabin / Stateroom
See "Quality" above
Food and Dining
Two main buffets and 2 restaurants (that no one even told us about until day 5). Bring pants and something other than flip-flops.
Service and Staff
Other than the rude women working in the casino that literally laugh at you when you asked to take out less than the minimum $100 cash (casino not opened when docked), the service from some other staff wasn't too bad.
