7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 14, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Dawn
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 8110
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The "Dawn" is very very dated. We had cigarette burn marks in our cabin.The whole ship was tattered and shabby looking.Freestyle isn't free. You have to pay "gratuities" on all sorts of things. If you wanted an extra towel at the pool you had to sign it out with a hefty 25.00 per towel payment if you didn't return it before returning to your room. My 83/86 yr old parents toilet overflowed into their room 3 times in 7 days. They only offered a free dinner. They jammed strip tickets down your throat at every opportunity.  So so disappointed. I could go on and on.
