Norwegian Dawn 2/16 Western Carribean

Sail Date: February 16, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

We had a wonderful experience on the Dawn. The embarkment was smooth with friendly staff moving us along efficiently. We had an inside cabin 11027 it met our needs with plenty of closet space. The entertainment was very good,  The staff couldn't have been better! We only had to wait once for seating in the Venetian, and then we were given a glass of champaign. A very nice gesture as we had not made reservations.   I would carefully consider the hidden fees before booking another NCL cruise. Having to pay extra for the use of the lap pool and upper lounge, and buying tickets to attend the game shows I found disturbing and did not purchase them! I will forewarn friends wanting to cruise that they will incu hidden fees. I felt a 15% gratuity for a drink a little stiff. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the ship and the friendly way to start your day with "washy, washy, happy, happy  Happy We were delayed disembarking due to extreme fog, for us this was a good thing as our flight was later in the day & felt bad for those waiting to start there venture! Thank you crew for a very pleasant week.
