This was our first experience with both Norwegian and cruising in general, and let me tell you, we will be returning to both! We purchased the interior stateroom for two reason, first, we didn't want to be woken up by sunlight and second, it was much more affordable. I have read other reviews saying how cramped the quarters are, but for two people who only really used the room for changing and sleeping - it was perfectly fine! The whole point of our cruise was to have fun, meet new people, and get lots of sun. We don't need to sit in our room for any of those reasons - the Norwegian Dawn has plenty of social and secluded areas for guests to get out of their stateroom.
Our cruise was also made especially special thanks to the Norwegian Dawn's Cruise Director, Dingo Dave. His upbeat personality and presence on the ship was unmistakeable and really helped to make our cruise a fun experience. He was excellent at keeping everyone informed and entertained. The rest of the staff was also fantastic and customer focused, I never felt like I was put out or in need of finding assistance.

Book your excursions early, the popular ones sell out very quickly. Reservations are helpful if your set on a specific dining time, but if you don't the wait isn't long and they'll give you a coupon for a glass of bubbly.
