Norwegian Dawn
7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 31, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Dawn
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 11632
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The ports of call were great. Zip lining in Roatan with South Shore Excursions was the best. The beach they brought us to after was picture perfect. And the tour of Chacchoben Ruins with Enrique of Native Choice Group was phenomenal. The ship however was meh. So many extra charges and ok food. Norwegian did not have a captain's dinner nor a dessert gala. They had many restaurants for an extra charge that I didn't even dine at. They did have a decent kids program that my boys, 10 and 7, enjoyed going to but not many other activities on board. I will not sail with Norwegian again but I will revisit the ports of call.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was good size for 4 people. Bathroom was nice and spacious. The balcony is a must and had plenty of privacy. The beds were very uncomfortable and the fold out for the kids was hard as a rock. Definitely difficult to complain when you're in paradise but hindsight is always 20/20.
