We picked Norwegian because the... by ejarnedo

Sail Date: /

We picked Norwegian because the itinerary was excellent: 11 days with 10 different ports. The balcony stateroom was really nice, ample, clean and with a well thought bathroom layout. The nightly shows were spectacular. The main issue is the crew. Norwegian has some unhappy employees, and it transpired too many times. The shore excursions manager was not a good communicator and during his presentation consistently told the "drama and the amount of tissues he has in his desk for all these clients that week after week cry to him because they couldn't booked their excursion." Just an example of the condescending personality of this individual. The food was substandard comparing with other cruise lines we went before. We would go again because of the price, itinerary and night shows but assuming that Norwegian may have a leadership issue and it may affect the way their crews treat us.

Alright for the price by BJJDiver

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

For the price - it's alright. It's going to be more about the excursions and the people you meet.

Fue una buena experiencia disfrute muchísimo. Me encanto. by AixaRivera

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

El crucero es muy bueno lo único que deben tener más personal de habla español. Aunque tienen pero deben de tener más. Lo demás son excelentes. Me gusto mucho su trato hacia nosotros y la disposición al momento de necesitar ayuda.

Wonderful Family Vacation by MelSherry

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall we had a great time and would sail on Norwegian again. The itinerary was excellent, especially for the three divers in our family. The thinks we have mentioned are more of an inconvenience rather than a show stopper.

good but disappointing in some ways by jbat

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Dawn is in need of a makeover. I'm not sure why morale was so low on this cruise but it needs to be addressed. Personnel need to be better trained about where everything is on the ship and i think all should be able to speak English.

Poor entertainment, boring parties geared to the crew; wonderful food; organized and reliable tours and best spa thermal suite by dirmavalentin

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Surprised about the poor entertainment on board for new years eve. The band selected for the pool area did not invite people to dance. Very poor organized. Boring activities ar night time. Thank god we bought the thermal suite pass. We have taken the new year cruise with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity ant the parties on board were fantastic. Norwegian needs to work on this area to improve the passenger experience.

Great experience with the family. We loved the food,crew and activities. The facilities were great. I would just suggest to offer more accommodations with people with allergies and food restrictions.

The cruise was great but staff wasn't very friendly by Sydneyashore

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I love cruising and enjoyed each port. It always seems like the cafe didn't have enough food out and several staff members were not wearing gloves when handling the food.

take it or leave it by tide4good

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

I picked the cheapest cabin so I had no extras (free at seas). You have to be careful if you do this because it is easy to get nickeled and dimed.

The ship had very nice... by TroyOfCincy

Sail Date: /

The ship had very nice entertainment features throughout. It's most recent refurbishment made good use of every space, though you could tell that they could do only so much to cover up it's old bones. For instance, on certain decks, you have to go up/down a floor to navigate a deck from one end to another. The food was good, though it was very repetitive. Even Carnival out-shines NCL with food options (comparing 7 days voyages). We found the workers aboard to be outstanding and very personable. We dislike that NCL practically shuts down it's venues at 10pm on the last evening (in a sense, it feels like NCL is giving you "the boot" early). All said and done, I would sail the Dawn again if the itinerary were right.
