Overall a Great vacation experience . by geokraj

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

Overall good experience . Good island selection .Captain found warm weather by second day :) . Dissatisfied by lost rafting photos :( Request Norwegian follow up and assist rafting contractor with recovering lost purchased photos . Please text George Krajewski@ 973 879 6905 with outcome . Thanks PS strongly suggest going forward Norwegian Not Providing Public space (Pool Area Nightly ) to any one single group . This made the two week experience very uncomfortable .

Panama Canal Transit Cruise not to be missed! by Marilynd

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

Wonderful and relaxing cruise. The ports were clean. First time at the ports we stopped at. Not fond of the tendering at Roatan Bay and Harvest Caye as it takes a while to get on and off and waiting etc. Met some fun folks and the staff and crew are so accommodating and welcoming. Love the Dawn and the mini-suite balcony

Loved our cruise! by crystalnwill

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

This was a trip of a lifetime and Norwegian really made it special! Having cruised Celebrity before our expectations were low. Norwegian exceeded our expectations and is now our cruise line of choice!

Cannot believe this is NCL by chougroup

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

My first NCL cruise in steam boat was in 1987. This Dawn has the best of port of calls, staff(maybe captain) over PA system explains panama canal in very detail, I give him 5 stars.

HORRIBLE by AngelaLucille

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Bermuda

I’ve been on 15-20 cruises in my lifetime, all of which were Royal Caribbean, and Carnival and I loved them. The food was phenomenal and the night life was amazing and fun. I had never been on a Norwegian, so I figured I’d give it a try! Well, I regret that I made that decision. Starting from the embarkation, there was a problem. We were supposed to board the ship at 10am, we didn’t board until 4pm! Ok, ok, I TRIED to forgive them, because apparently they were having issues with the gangway. We came aboard STARVING, because we were waiting around for 6 hours for the ship to let us on, so we figured they’d have the restaurants open, NOPE. I was wrong. We had to wait around until 5:30 to get food in our stomachs. And even then, I was expecting the food to be great (hoping it was worth the wait). WRONG AGAIN. The food was SUBPAR, and I’m being generous. Most of it was awful. We had 3-specialty dining meals, which we chose hibachi (Teppanyaki), the steakhouse (Cagneys) and Italian (La Cucina). They were better then the main dining, but still not phenomenal, EXCEPT for the Italian. The Italian was pretty good, but I don’t know if it was really as delicious as I think it was, or delicious by comparison to the nonsense they subjected us to the rest of the trip. Since the Dawn is a small ship, you will feel EVERYTHING. So if you get seasick, DON’T Even bother. I had never gotten seasick on a ship in my life, and I woke up in the middle of the night on two separate nights, throwing up from the movement. The nightlife is TRASH. Other than the one pub that is open 24 hours (Osheehans) which has maybe 10 items on the menu total, everything closes at about midnight. My friend and I (26 and 31) were looking for something fun to do and people around our age to hang out with and meet, but everything closed early, and it was as if it was a geriatric convention. The cabin was of average size, so I cannot complain, but because the ship was refurbished you can tell it’s old with rust spots and the like. And to add insult to injury, It rained almost the whole time. I understand that’s not the cruise lines fault but it just added to the horrible experience. I felt horrible, this was my friends first cruise experience. And I had to keep apologizing, explaining that this wasn’t the norm for a cruise, since it was my idea. Overall, unfortunately I would NEVER sail Norwegian again

Worst trip ever by vmichaels620

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

Boarding the ship was awful, we waited three hours to board due to ship not being ready and computer failure. We were told that when we arrived to the ship we could get two different beverage packages due to one cabin member being a diabetic, we were not told that we needed an original document stating so, as a result we had to purchase two drink packages were one one of us drank alcohol. After day two of the cruise we were served the same food for the balance of the cruise which became dried out and stale. We were served Chinese food most of the trip for lunch and dinner. There was basically no entertainment or things to do because the daily fliers were wrong and there were no announcements telling us what was going on or where the things that did happen where they were taking place. We were served cold food when it was suppose to be hot. I was in one of three cabins with other family members, one of the other cabins had a bathroom drain backup and all they did was wash it back down the same drain, no-one came to properly clean it or sanitize the bathroom floor after that. I will never use this cruise line again or recommend it to anyone, as a matter of fact everyone that has asked me about this cruise was given the same report as I am telling you now. Thank you for a miserable time.

Underwhelmed by Caesar9965

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Dawn / Destination: Bermuda

We have been on over 2 dozen cruises on about 5 different lines. Most of our cruises have been on NCL because we like the freestyle dining. This was our 3rd voyage on the Dawn and it was very underwhelming... food, drinks, embarkation, disembarkation, canin steward were all below average
