All in all we had a good cruise. Some of the staff just need to be a little bit more educated and given politeness lessons

Super fun by Susabella

We enjoyed every aspect of this cruise. The cabin was small but comfortable. It’s well worth getting the balcony as it made a big difference to the comfort of the room.

The Suite life wasn't so sweet this time by teddierspier

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

For what we paid, we should have gotten the Norwegian Suite bells and whistles. We did not. We did the Spirit in Europe and were treated so well from beginning to end. The Dawn is nice, most of the staff was great, but Norwegian wants to nickle and dime you to death selling junk and being pushy about future cruises, art and jewelry. For what we paid we could have gone on a Viking cruise. We just were on a Carnival cruise in September and were treated like royalty even though they have no perks for their guests, no matter what room they book. We are not planning on any more Norwegian cruises.

avoid the buffet for lunch and dinner..food sucks and you will probably get sick..at breakfast they use sow belly for bacon..poor quality..not like any other Norwegian cruise..we had 10 so far...buffet supervisor needs to be fired...now!!!! I bet there is allot of not reported food poisoning for fear of being quarantined to room...or novo virus...

NCL is cutting back. by JayneMM

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We anticipated this cruise for almost a year and it was quite disappointing. We have cruised with NCL many times and have noticed the cut-backs over the last few years. The people working on the ship are always wonderful but they must be frustrated. It seems that they are hiring fewer people who have to work a lot harder during their contract. We are hoping that NCL listens to their customers and improves their quality of food and service. We realize they are pumping a lot of money into their new ships, but at the cost of their loyal customer base.

ANNIHIILATED A 42 ANNIVERSARY by jhollosy

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

ANNIHILATED A 42nd ANNIVERSARY...read the review comments and just set reasonable expections...dont look at the pictures in the Venetian(think GRAFFITTI artist gone wild)...the execs should get up and take a cruise and/or hire someone to just LISTEN to the conversations all around where ever they sit...secret shoppers would be nice...and with all the technology and just in time delivery, one would think NCL would use both, to do a DEMOGRAPHIC study of their incoming passengers...a head chef from India was a major clue that the menu would be trying...and it was...

The weather was beautiful. So glad I brought extra winter sweaters to wear on the ship. The air conditioning is so ridiculously cold in several places.

A good value for the price. Not particularly impressed with the service but the ports have plenty of activities and Harvest Caye is beautiful.

ok cruise by bmerrit48

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

ncl was one of my favorite cruise lines, been on dawn 3 times, jade 1 time, getaway 1 time, love the freestyle cruising..however after this trip they are no longer my 1st choice.. the food was not good at all in most venues.. I think ncl is trying to get everyone to pay extra for specialty dining.. everything on ship was very clean and well maintained as far as I could tell.. cabin was very comfortable.. embark and disembark was very bad.. over 2 hrs each.. service was good... over $3 for a pepsi and no coca cola products on board at all... and not allowed to bring one with you..

First time sailing on Norwegian but not the last by sinfurna2000

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Loved the ship. Liked the ports and despite embarkation problems would probably cruise with Norwegian again but would probably book a better cabin. Booked this cruise on short notice and ended up with an "obstructed view" cabin. I was worried that a 10 day cruise would be too long but in the end, if I could have gotten a good price, I would have stayed aboard for the next cruise.

Horrible, Unsatisfactory, Disappointing by kelleyjetk

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was absolutely one of the worst cruise i have ever experienced. Talked to a couple one night in the dining that had cruised 131 times and this was the awefulest cruise they had been on. They agreed this was their last Norwegian cruise also. Actually everyone we spoke with and ask their opinion was not happy with Norwegian at all. I feel as if my time and money were wasted with this cruise. If you chose to go to the pool while at sea you could not get a seat because of persons going out at 6-7 a.m. and laying their towels in the chairs just to have a seat by noon. Any other curise ship i have been on had music playing out by the pool by 10 a.m. but not this one. You were lucky if you caught the band up there. This thing they call free styling for dining was awful too. All those old people went down an hour before dinner to get in line and by the time you got there at 5 p.m. your dining time the line was absolutely an hour out. I believe from expierence on other cruise lines the assigned tables and dining times worked better. I never seen anything like this dining. We truly made out own fun. This cruise line was awful !!!! Never had such a bad experience cruising. Everyone we talked to advised Royal Carribean.

We enjoyed the cruise, but some rough seas (unusual for this time of year) dampened the experience a bit.

Fail! by ralmquist

Worst food and entertainment on any of the dozens of cruises I've taken. Service ranged from good to indifferent. However, the great price and good ports made up for the poor food, terrible entertainment, and indifferent service

Awesome itinerary!! by dzills

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our flight arrived in San Juan about 3 pm and we boarded the ship about 3:30, hungry and tired. All services and dining options were closed due to the mandatory drill at 4:30. The ship didn't leave port until 9 pm and passengers only had to be on board by 7 pm. We don't understand why the mandatory drill was done when all passengers weren't on board, and inconvenienced us as we were not able to dine after being in flight and airports since 4 in the morning.
