NCL is great for doing things the way you want to cruise. We stay clear of the Oasis pool area as it is pretty loud\, full of smokers and high pressure for liquor sales. Other areas on the ship are relaxing\, diverse and entertaining. There is always something going on if you are looking for something to do. Our first NCL cruise was on the Pearl which has a lead on service over the Dawn. The food was great in all restaurants but the service levels were inconsistent\, especially in Le Bistro. The excursions were top notch and very fun!
