Norwegian Dawn

April 2014 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean

First tme wih NCL Norwegian Dawn

6 cruises with HAL, 1 QE2,  3 river boat cruises in  Europe. Our April 2014 cruise on Norwegian Dawn .Lifeboat drill a joke !  big  crowd of people approx' 150 herded into the  Aqua dining room, two crew memebrs on duty , one with red flag (ships left side )  green flag ( ships right side ) crowd noise level unreal , emergency  announcements and procedures  from bridge could NOT  be heard  above the room  noise level, female cruise member demonstrates how to don the  lifejacket, not much crowd interest here either , apparently in an emergency one has to follow the guy with the green flag to get you to  your life boat station and/or boat ? never did hear or see posted  what boat we were assigned to, most other cruise lines have cabin number and  lifeboat number highlighted and attached to the inside of your  state room door. Overall cruise experience was enjoayable with lots of day to  day activities, food also very good in main dining rooms and buffet (s)  ( we did not patronize the so called  "speciality" restaurants ) , entertainment excellent with lots of   variety, good CLEAN comedian, In closing found that some of the  "guest" services desk staff  seemed to have difficulty in understanding english ? unusual for someone in a "frront line " position.This writer is a former retired senior  marine engineer with many years seagoing experience.

swanvesta's Tips

Norwegian Dawn Norwegian Dawn - After boarding and under way on your cruise, ask an officer (s) or someone of senior rank ( those with gold braded epaulets ) what life boat STATION and BOAT you are assigned to , go check out that station, then in case of an emergency you will have an idea of what direction to go in.
