Norwegian Dawn-----Avoid if possible!!!!!

Sail Date: June 13, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Left Boston with wooden crates and gang boxes on pool deck. Norwegian decided to refurbish the teak in the pool area as we cruised, closing 1/2 of the pool deck area at a time.With only one small pool onboard it wasn't a pleasant experience. Ship is very dated, short staffed, dirty, and overpriced. Our BA balcony was worn and dirty, the cabin bath was very small and cramped. We only had 4.5 to 7foot seas on the whole trip,which should not even had been felt,not on this tub,it rocked and pitched to the point of trouble walking. Only good things were the staff and the entertainment,the food was usually served lukewarm, but was good when hot. We are experienced cruisers, 10 plus cruises, from Italy to Hawaii and everywhere in between,and never had such a bad experience anywhere!
