Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Most staff were exceptionally nice (Porn who was our waiter\, and Victor our Stateroom steward\, and several others). There were a few who were not\, including the hostess at The Venetian. We went there several times and every time she was cold as ice.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Size was fine\, layout was fine\, public areas were fine\, decor was outdated\, cleanliness was good\, accessibility was fine.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
All fine\, nothing special about it.

Pros: The food was great\, including the food provided at no extra charge. The entertainment was pretty good. Second City did a nice job. Most of the ports were nice.

Cons: Service in the restaurants was\, for the most part\, terrible. On more than one occasion it took over an hour to get the main course. The entertainment provided by the ship crew was not good. Probably a good idea to let real performers perform. The Roatan port was not a great place to visit.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
