Ship: Norwegian Dawn
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Above average entertainment\, with a magician\, arielists\, song and dance guys\, musical groups\, comedy. Did not feel the need to upgrade the meal package--the 4 free places to eat were fine.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Service can be slow at peak hours. Some clunkers on the menu (i.e. no one like the Salmon Tartare appetizer) but you can go fish and try again.


5 out of 5
Definately this ships strong point--Second City Comedy was a big hit.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
My teens loved the teen center.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Some great people\, some average--there are over 1000 employees on the ship.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
It is a good ship - large but not too large\, nice theater\, dining areas. Still in pretty good shape - a thing or two I would have fixed if it was my ship\, but nothing serious.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I got the kids an interior cabin\, and adults a balcony--no complaints at all.

Pros: 4 good ports\, plus New Orleans

Cons: Typical shakedown at the docks by porters\, taxi drivers\, price of internet

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
