Norwegian Dawn

January 2015 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western

Great time on the Norwegian Dawn

This was our 3rd trip with NCL, 2nd on the Dawn. She's an older ship, but still gets the job done, has great layout, good crew.  The itinerary was awesome - 4 ports and just 2 days on the ship, one at the beginning and one at the end.  Food was good, typical for NCL, smaller portions(which we like, as its so easy to overeat on cruises) Crew was great, especially our storeroom attendant Christian, who took care of every need we had in our room.

Norwegian Epic

December 2013 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Eastern

Norwegian Epic - week before Christmas 2013

 Great trip!  This was our 4th cruise, 2nd on NCL.  As a couple, we love the freestyle cruising, as its easier to find a place to eat, not worry about waiting until our appointed time.  Saw large groups having to work hard at making reservations, so wouldn't recommend for large groups.  Ship was big, loved our stateroom (we had a mini-suite) and the balcony was really big.  We spent a lot of time out there.   Minuses were the casino being in the middle of the ship, the walking/jogging track had NO VIEW (looking at the lifeboats) and didn't go all the way around the ship.  Lots of waiting for elevators too!

  Would go again, but not on the Epic.

slaglator's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - the passion island beach break was cancelled due to lack of interest, we went ashore and shopped
New Orleans, Louisiana - spent the day after our cruise at cafe du monde, took a carriage tour, and did the Katrina/mardi gras museum. want to go back to take a cooking class at New Orleans school of cooking
Norwegian Dawn Norwegian Dawn - Deck 11 does get noise from the buffet directly above, if you book it, bring earplugs, we put them in at night and slept like babies. Room was great, so it was no big deal.
Nassau, Bahamas - We got a tip to go to Cable Beach - don't do that! No Public beaches!
Norwegian Epic Norwegian Epic - If you eat at the buffet, take your food to the fwd end of the ship and go downstairs to eat at La Cucina - much quieter! Also, be prepared to walk stairs or wait long times for elevators. I wore my fitbit and averaged 17,000 step a day!
