You should have scheduled dining and then a section with free style. The reservation personnel would tell you everything is booked, the monitors would show you they were not. There was only one nice dining room. The dining room manager met with us and explained there were several large groups that booked reservations 2 weeks prior for the whole cruise. That is not right. However, the manager helped us secure a time for us.

Food and Dining

A few good shows. Several nights they only had one show\, that really made you scramble to eat and then all crowd in. Not good planning.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
One dining room had staff that were not smiling\, looked abit not excited about working. They might have been new which might be the reason but they looked more like they were sentenced to the lower dining room that was more of an overflow dining room.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
They need to wipe down stair handles more often\, did not see that happening hardly at all.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Room was nice.

Pros: Room w/Balcony

Cons: Dining including the \"freestyle scheduling\" was not good\, entertainments was okay on some nights\, one port not worth stopping at\, don't get a room under the top floor\, noisey at all hours with chairs being moved so not much sleep.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? No.
