Review Summary

Clean comfortable room, excellent professional entertainment, fun activities including multiple trivia sessions and games, great food, great service, friendly staff - what's not to like? The ship provided plenty of areas to relax, even on 'at sea' days when everyone was on board. The staff was constantly cleaning so everything was clean, including public rest rooms


The restaurants were fancy and the food was delicious. Not having to dress up was a definite bonus. We often chose the buffet and were never disappointed.


We did not take the shore excursions (we've done this cruise in the past so previously visited all the countries) but we heard good excursion reviews from our new cruise friends. 


Yes, boarding is a bit tedious with long lines but exiting the ship at the end of the cruise was very efficient. If you can handle your own luggage and aren't with a group I would suggest this easy-off method. 


Thanks NCL, we'll be back.

Ship Tip

We understand that the Dawn will be docked for a few months and upgraded - it was great but we'd love to cruise the Dawn again and see what changes. Some things just need to be upgraded periodically and we're happy to know that NCL does that.
