I don't recommend this ship to ballroom dancers because it is ridiculously laid out. Entertaninment was great\, but we had to make our own dance floor BEHIND the duo in the lobby!! Really stupid. The other lounge with the small dance floor had mostly kid music. I think the ship is all about eating. Spaces were taken up with lots of restaurants\, couldn't find any really cozy spots to read a book play games\, etc. like we've found on other ships. Free style dining is ok if you're just 2 people but if you're in a group\, forget it. Can only make reservations at 5:30PM or after 8:30PM otherwise you wait on line with a beeper like in a regular restaurant. It was very clean and pretty\, food was good\, service all around was very good\, but for us\, we'd never take it again simply because we're not about eating\, but about dancing.

Pros: 24 hr. free small restaurant

Cons: Horrible ship for ballroom dancers even though they had good music. Shame.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? No.
