Great Vacation!!

Sail Date: July 27, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The Norwegian Dawn was a great ship. it rarely felt crowded - only during a couple of very popular events in the Stardust Theater and Spinnaker Lounge did we have any issue with seating or views. The layout was great and easy to navigate. Signage was excellent if we ever got turned around. Food venues were great, though we did not try any of the extra cost restaurants. Pool deck was very nice and not as crowded as I expected - we always found a place to sit or lounge. All of the staff, especially the entertainment, were wonderful.

Pros: A relaxing\, no hassle trip. Great for a family group when we all want to do different things.

Cons: Not enough time in Bermuda. Only one full day made it difficult to do a lot that required land travel across the island.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
The staterooms were clean and comfortable\, with more storage space than we expected. The balcony views were amazing. We had a handicap room so we had extra space\, but our children had an inside double which was fine.
Service and Staff
Paul Scally\, Johnnie\, Justin\, Gigi and Roman were wonderful. Our cabin steward\, Robinson\, was the best. Everyone was polite and friendly. The one exception was at the spa but we forgot about that quickly.
The shows and entertainment was outstanding. I got a bit tired of bingo by the end of the week (even though we won!)\, but there was always something fun to do on the ship.
