Great trip. Seems like the Caribbean sun put everyone, including the crew, in a great mood. The food, and service were better than on our Alaska cruise with NCL. Smiling faces greeted is in every part of the ship. We felt like everyone genuinely cared that we have fun and memorable trip. Mission accomplished!

Service and Staff

Everyone had a smile and a genuine interest in making sure each person had a great trip.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The Dawn is an older ship that has been carefully refurbished. That being said, it is still a decade old ship. While many ships transport you to places like Central Park, the Dawn has a "shippy" feel, with compact staterooms, wood railings, and teak details in the spa.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Smallish stateroom. Had everything you might need, desk, vanity, closet, and a fairly spacious shower.

Pros: Something to do at any hour

Cons: NCL over charging for drinks, bingo, and excursions.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
