Excellent cruise on the Norwegian Dawn

Sail Date: April 12, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The staff was friendly, fun, attentive, and capable.  The ship was clean and comfortable.  The fitness center and its staff were excellent.  The food was generally good but sometimes over-cooked. Loved the ports we visited, except that in Mexico the vendors were annoyingly aggressive.  Definitely will cruise with Norwegian again.  Great value!

the experience with aggressive vendors ruined the visit. Couldn't wait to get back on the ship.

The horseback ride in Bacab Eco Park was a highlight of our cruise!!
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
We rented a car and circled the island. Easy to rent and get around. Loved it!

Swimming with dolphins was so much fun!


We've been on many cruises. I was pleasantly surprised with the size of our cabin's bathroom.
