Wonderful New England Cruise.. by dukiedog

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Cruise was great. Bar tenders ignore you a lot, stand and wait far to long for acknowledgement...(that’s not good).. food so so but the ports are great.

Over Crowed by georgeware68

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Bermuda

I would cruise again on NCL but not that ship, as we have a cruise in Europe for the Holidays on the Spirit and I hope there is no issues there. You've already canceld one day off of our trip.

Canadians are cool! NCL, not so much. by h2omelons

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Ship's officers and crew, maintenance, security, etc. Top notch. Service staff sublime, as always. Hotel/service Management getting worse each passing cruise. Here's a summation. If they screw something up like your airfare or your cruise credits, expect this response "Tough noogies. Buyer beware. Now go away, you're bothering us. WE'RE NOT LISTENING - Fingers in ears. Nahnahnahnahnanahnah."

Loved the Itinerary by brngckn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Service and little touches seem to be scaled back little by little each year. From my last cruise two years ago, no more daily ice in the room, no more occasional towel animals on the bed. I was told by crew that additional tips added to bar and restaurant staff are retained by the company so not to bother - outrageous! Makes me a bit sad as a Latitudes Platinum.

Historical, Gorgeous Views, Memories Made on Canada & New England Fall Foilage Cruise by WanderWPurpose

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

We love cruising even though we haven't done many. Small ships are for us, unless we are with family and kids. However, it is extremely disappointing to see how cheap the cruise lines are becoming. When a drink package that includes water is nearly $100 more a day, you aren't allowed to bring your own water aboard... even while at ports!! NO BEVERAGES ALLOWED FROM OUTSIDE, OPENED OR UNOPENED!! By the third day I was dehydrated and drinking water whenever I could find it. I refused to pay $6 for a $2 bottle of water. They are getting cheap on the dining experiences too. No more Lobster night in the main dining room. If you want lobster, there was one specialty restaurant where you could get it, the steakhouse. The same with Escargot, only at the French place. These were the fun things people don't necessarily order at home. I applaud them for reducing portion sizes, since the waste was unbelievable before. But nickle and diming beyond the cost of the cruise is something a lot of travelers can not afford. Word has it cruise lines are pondering 'resort fees' now. If that happens, I'm out.

Acceptable cruise with the upgrades. by Jetlagcruiser

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

NCL failed in their pricing policy. Cruise was reduced after booking and they did not fully compensate the difference. Let the cruiser beware!

Norwegian ...failed on air and was not wheelchair friendly by KarenK8

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

I would not recommend this to anyone who has problems walking. Too many ports were tendered. Norwegian also had no consideration for its passengers when it booked outrageous times for the cheap airfare. I do not plan on using them again!

Smooth sailing by towens101

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

This would be a great cruise to introduce someone to cruising as we often couldn't tell we were on the water due to the slow speeds from port to port, etc. NCL needs to work on their food however, nothing ever stood out in the complementary dining venues, really need to pay for specialty dining to enjoy.

Boring ship! by taeta

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

If you are used to the Breakaway, you will not like this ship. I, for one, will never sail Dawn or any ship from that category. Only the shows in the theater made this trip not a complete flop

Great Trip! by fsyanagawa

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

This was our honeymoon and we booked through using miles I had racked up for years. The whole experience was very relaxing and my wife and I enjoyed it a lot. The boat was launched in 2002, so the design is a little bit older and there are no water slides, but there is plenty of entertainment on board. We went to Cocoa Beach - swam and biked on the beach. The Great Stirrup Cay (GSC) and the underwater sculpture garden were fantastic. Since the GSC is a cruiseline private island, they serve free lunch there, which was awesome. Nassau is mostly a touristy place with lots of shopping, but you can definitely get to the beach. Overall, a great trip!

Singlehandedly Ruined Our Honeymoon, & our 1st cruise... by ArielleWiater

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

The staff and crew of the Norwegian Dawn single-handedly ruined our honeymoon. when we were able to get off on two out of the three islands, with very little time to spend, we had a wonderful time with the Islanders of Nassau, and swimming in Stirrup cay. I finished all my anxiety medication while on the trip, a day and a half early. The threats, nastiness, lack of help or understanding English at all, the lack of water or hot water throughout the entire trip I just can't say anything but tortured. Sleep deprivation & TORTURE.
