A good cruise

Sail Date: January 01, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ports of call were disappointing because of the barriers to entry into the surrounding communities. This was our 7th cruise and the first where we were quite limited in our ability to freely go ashore and shop or visit in the village or city.
We took tours in two ports\, Roatan and Belize City\, but did them on our own. Both were very good tours\, interesting and reasonably priced. The Eco-tour on Roatan was very well conducted and pretty well followed what was written on the internet websites. We took a city tour with a local tour guide/driver in Belize City and had a very good experience. Our guide/drive spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable about the city. We would recommend both of these tours.
Overall\, we thought this cruise was not quite up to par with all the others we have taken. We would not take this itinerary again - not the ports of call.

Pros: Staff were friendly and helpful

Cons: Some of the ports of call

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Ship Quality
We were pleased with the overall quality of the ship and its decor\, etc.
Food and Dining
We would rate dining and food as very good when compared with other cruises we have been on.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was smaller and more cramped than any we have previously had. We take an inside cabin most of the time since we don't spend much time in the cabin. This cabin was just cramped.
