Out trip was great. We enjoyed the itinerary itself and New Orleans is a great place to cruise from. The Norwegian entertainment was outstanding (certainly above our expectations) and our stateroom was excellent (even though the Dawn feels a bit old - didn't bother us much).  Food was good - we've seen better on other Norwegian (Breakaway) and Holland America cruises, but it was as we expected given the the great pricing. Tendering was not great - we had to wait 4 hours. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Excellent experience and good choice (balcony).
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Waited a long time for our tender group to be called. There were limited number of tenders servicing the Dawn. Get your tender tickets early in the morning!
Onboard Activities
Dingo Dave did a great job. Dance, acrobatics and other entertainment on the Dawn was above our expectations. Outstanding!
