7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 28, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Dawn
Cabin Number: 10013 & 10017
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Most of the staff were very friendly.  However, a lot of the males (especially in the dining room) seemed cold.  The last night we felt that we were bothering the waiter just ordering and that night we did not get or drinks re-filled.  Food not bad but not as good as previous cruises.  This was the first cruise of 11 that we have taken that did not have a stand up comedian, we missed that a lot.  There was an improv group that was on the main stage that did limited skits in the smaller back room.  Did not have beach towels or floor mats until mentioning then did not get beach towels after mentioning to the customer service at least twice.  Then found our separate room with a separate steward was receiving them even though I stated the room that was missing them each time.   No big deal but mints and towel animals were in the room 2-3 times out of 7 nights.  Cruise Director Richard M. always had a joke or two after any event, that was nice.  NCL having welcome back tents on ports is nice.
