Norwegian Canada & New England 2015

Room Type: Balcony

OK cruise but excursions could be better.  Most are simply bus rides through the town or park visited.  We have had previous trips on the Norwegian Star which seems to be better maintained than the Norwegian Dawn used for this cruise.  The Dawn had issues with plumbing and both water and toilets were unavailable in our stateroom at various times.  We invited our daughter on this cruise and the balcony stateroom was cramped for 3 people.  When the sofa bed was open, the balcony was blocked and inaccessible.  We have had similar staterooms on Carnival cruises and did not have this problem since the sofa-bed was located in the middle of the stateroom.  Fall colors in Canada and New England are late this year, so we were disappointed with the views.  In the future, we will book the cruise a couple of weeks later.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cramped for 3 adults. Sofa-bed is located next to balcony door and blocks door when sofa-bed is open.

Food is good but quality seems to diminish during the cruise duration.
