Although I rated this cruise "good", there were some downsides to it. The number one complaint I have is not being able to get a lounge chair by the pool whenever you wanted to. People "reserved" the chairs by putting their towels on them, never to return! We talked to someone about it once, but it did not do us any good. This is my third cruise and I have never run into this problem before.
Also, the food was quite salty. I was traveling with my family, a group of 8 of us and my Father's legs and ankles swelled up from so much salt in the food.
We had to travel to NY to get to this cruise, and I am very disappointed that Norwegian (or any other cruise line) other than the Dawn, does not send different ships to the Boston location. We already sailed on the Dawn, and are waiting for another ship to come to Boston!!
Overall, this cruise was ok. But in my opinion, the Dawn was better.
