It was a fantastic sailing!!! by CruisingBs

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

Our 20th anniversary trip was amazing. We very much enjoyed the thermal spa package and VIP treatment. We will definitely be sailing with NCL again. Our only problem is always before we sail. The NCL agent we had was terrible. Thankfully a supervisor stepped in and fixed EVERYTHING! For this reason, I will not reveal our NCL agents name but we will book differently next time.

Norwegian is line of choice. Best cruise in years. Loved the ship and crew by Norwegianfan

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

It was the cruise of a lifetime. The suite was magnificent and much more than expected. The embarkation process was the best we have ever experienced. From time of arrival to sitting comfortably in our suite in less than an hour. The staff was friendly and genuinely cared about every part of our vacation experience. Gilbert was amazing at anticipating our needs and ensuring our vacation was truly exceptional. The food and entertainment were both excellent. We have tried many cruise lines and Norwegian is and will continue to be our cruise line of choice.

Never again on Norwegian dawn by ellison1972

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

This was our 6th cruise. Very disappointed in the things to do on the ship and the shows. The restaurant and bar service was not real good. I wandered if it was a training ship. I would recommend another Norwegian ship.

Disappointed in seafood dishes. Disappointed to find out according to prior information there was no gelato bar and What happened to the offering advertised as eight flavors of ice cream?

Cruise was just ok, the company that I was with made it great. by BGlid

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I may not cruise with Norweigan again. The food was the biggest disappointment, as well as the customer service from some of them. Getting drinks at the bar took WAY too long at any time.

Happy New Year cruise by judy0847

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Overall it was a good cruise on a smaller ship. Should have had free bottled water in room rather than paying $6 a bottle. Bottled water not included in drink package. Our safe was locked when we got to our room, and they could not open it because they didnt have the tool. So we could not lock our passports and extra money. Did not like that situation at all.

Enjoyable Caribbean Cruise by DrDeb8

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

This was our first time sailing with Norweigian and hands down, we met the nicest people on board. We found the dining experience to be confusing and frustrating - perhaps a "how to" guide for first timers would help. The crew was great, the excursions were all fun and the ship was fine - I learned I like bigger ships with more activities. If you are cruising for the pool and beach, this is the ship for you. Nice memories

The greatest issue was being charged $277+ for gratuities on the "Ultimate Beverage Pakage" that NCL "gifted" us with NO prior knowledge and no refund! Will not sail NCL again! by sharonsanderson

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Neither nor NCL informed us of the Ultimate Beverage Package "gift" that resulted in $277+ charges in gratuities. We had no knowledge of that "gift", and when we inquired about the unauthorized charges, the personnel blamed NCL as a new "practice", and NCL accused C.O. of not informing us. I have used C.O. several times over the years and have never had an issue. This is an unacceptable way to handle business. We have not received a total refund. NCL reimbursed us $105 designated for steward gratuities from our bill - which was the improper way to handle this. Never again with NCL.

Bad Start but got better by jimnemeth

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

Overall we had a good cruise . From the inconvenience of no safe to bad weather missing two ports. We love ship life ,the ship was very nice and clean . Food was good and drink were stout when we passed up Cozumel . The Captain showed good judgment passing up docking in high winds.

Cruise Review by zoiajones92

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Dawn

Confusing ship. Good food. Bamboo restaurant was so nice and delicious. Activities were moderate. I really thought the rooms were great besides not having even a safe in my room. Most rooms that had one were broken! Please be aware. They don’t tell you that I’m advance. But plenty of food choices when your tired of losing your way around the ship. It’s a maze inside! I actually found most easy to start on 7th floor in java cafe area and stay closest to the back of the ship and you’ll be fine.

Posted reviews were dead on correct by kjcforestfamily

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Dawn

The employees were very nice and tried to accommodate you as long as you were reasonable. I found the buffet good, not great. I do not recommend this ship for teenagers unless they bring friends along as the hang out area is lacking, the video arcade pretty small. There was no dancing or entertainment on the top deck at night, only 1 lounge which was ok all in all. I don’t think there was anything wrong with the cruise ship but I wouldn’t go on it again.
