It was nice and I would do it again, but I did not feel pampering and exciting as in the past

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I feel like the food in general has moved down a notch compared to my last cruise on NCL in 2010. The buffet food seemed more repetitive than I remember and the restaurant food in the included restaurants was not as exciting as it used to be. I really feel like it is all about the pay resaurants now and that irritates me. The food was still good and plentiful\, but I was sick of hot dogs and pizza by the time I got off the boat\, ot what I had hoped!


3 out of 5
Seemed like less and less upbeat than past experiences. Again\, it is all about the pay services now.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The cabin steward was great\, the dining room and restaurant staff were great and the deck bar staff was great. The front desk staff was a little snippy.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I feel like this ship was not as well designed as other ships I have been on\, there were a lot of dead ends and there were not a lot of spaces to just sit and chill.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Good\, seemed a little smaller than usual. just slightly musty\, but they always are. The cabin steward was great.

Pros: Most of the crew was great

Cons: Repetitive buffet food

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
