The cruise started out fine. Good was generally excellent for the first 5 days but there was a noticible drop off in quality of food and service at that time. Tables were left dirty and with dishes. Inadequate wiping of the tables and frequent outages of coffee, cups, service items. It's expected that there will be sales of a variety of services and items but, it was overwhelming in a bad way on this cruise.
So so much attention on Diamonds international in each port. Clearly a profit center for the cruise line.
On disembarcatiln it took over 2 hours to just get off the ship as a walk off. Left a bad taste in all the folks we shared the line with. While we would travel on Norwegian again, we would never travel on the Dawn again. Ship was worn and tired. Obvious need of attentive repairs and paint in many areas.
