Traveling Alone

Sail Date: January 03, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

This was my 19th cruise but first one to travel alone.  I especially enjoyed the Freestyle dining because I was fortunate to share a table at each meal in the dining rooms.  My Oceanview cabin felt so much larger due to only one person in residence. There was a meeting of " alone" cruisers but I didn't attend. but would suggest it for more reticent travelers. I will cruise with others again but have no worries about cruising alone again.  I would appreciate NCL giving a cost break for alone cabins.

Cabin / Stateroom
If you want more hanging space, bring some 3M removable hangers for the walls
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Extremely easy.
Ship Quality
The Dawn is looking a little tired. I understand she is going to have an overhaul. Looking forwards to sailing on her again in the future.
Destinations and Excursions
I did 3 of the 4 ports and each tour was informative and relaxing.
Onboard Activities
Trivia's were challenging but fun. The activity games were entertaining.
Children's Programs Did not use.
The entertainment was above superb. The culmination of all the performers in 1 show was spellbinding.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
New Orleans, Louisiana
I stayed at the LaQuinta in Gretna for one night and was able to leave my car at no charge for the cruise. A cab ride was $17 each way.
Cozumel, Mexico
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Belize City, Belize
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico


She is a comfortable size ship. One doesn't feel they cannot know where everything is by the third day
