Verified Review
7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 03, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Dawn
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 11022
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Plus:  Ship was generally clean and well kept.  Food was good.

Minus:  Crew, while generally pleasant and helpful often didn't understand requests - a glass of ice never came - twice.  Because they didn't understand the request.  So, a language barrier.  Smoking in the casino was awful.  Since I enjoy the casino on a cruise, I would not go on NCL again unless they changed their policy.  At least separate smoking and non in the casino as other lines do. There was not a quiet bar on the ship!  Piano bars were so noisy, one couldn't hear the piano playing!
