My wife and I had a wonderful experience on our cruise.  It was a much-needed vacation and we couldn't have asked for a better time.  This was our second Norwegian Dawn cruise and both times we have been very satisfied with the crew, the food, and the ports of call.  The entertainment this cruise was absolutely amazing!  We met some great people and this experience will be a wonderful memory for us.  Thanks for everything!Love  

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Our service until the last evening in the Aqua and Venetian was kind of slow but really, we had all the time in the world, so I won't complain. It was just unusual for us to have this happen on a cruise.
Service and Staff
Rauth or Ralth, he was from India and was our waiter in the Aqua dining room on Friday evening. He was so fun and did a very good job!
Fantastic! It was the best we've ever seen on a cruise. The dancers were great; have had better singers, but the show "Elements" was fantastic!!
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Costa Maya left a bit to be desired, didn't like the aggressive shop people; there wasn't much to offer in the way of shore excursions.
Cabin / Stateroom Our room was very comfortable and our steward Arif was so kind.
New Orleans, Louisiana
We came in day before departure and went on our own walking tour.
Cozumel, Mexico
We took the bus trip around Cozumel and enjoyed shopping.
Belize City, Belize
We had a wonderful tour guide who made the hour and half bus ride to the Mayan Ruins very fun! She was so proud of her heritage and her city. The guide at the Ruins was great too! He was so knowledgeable and made the trip worth every penny.
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
We went ziplining! It was great and something everyone should do once in their life! My wife enjoyed the beautiful beach (best so far) and I went snorkeling. Beautiful place!
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
We didn't plan any shore excursions in Costa Maya but did walk downtown a ways. There was nothing there. the shopping was all right but the shopkeepers were a little pushy and some were rude when you didn't buy anything.
