Very Disappointed

Sail Date: February 14, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

Cabin / Stateroom
very dated. beds were hard and had grooves if thats possible.... there were cigarette burns in the bathroom plastic molded sink.
Illusionist was satanic... yuk. The aerialists were fabulous. The dancers were very good.
Service and Staff
Cranky. except the cruise directors. People you had to interact with .... crabby.
Food and Dining
The buffet barely changed every day. The officer and staff got into an argument in front of everyone
New Orleans, Louisiana

Cozumel, Mexico
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Belize City, Belize
