Norwegian Dawn beat my expectations
Destination: Canada & New England
The food on the Dawn was surprisingly quite good, better than Holland. The specialty restaurants were excellent, and the up-charge was nominal. The buffet and the free nicer restaurants were OK, although not outstanding.
The two piano players in the bar (N. Reed & A, Jacobe)were first class, as were Jose & Patty and some of the other groups. The big shows in The Stardust Theater were so-so, but no worse than those on Holland. Overall, the entertainment was very good compared to Holland.
Service was More excellent. Cabin 9000 was part of the Concierge service, and she was top-notch. Overall, this vessel was much nicer than we expected and good value for the money and we will sail with NCL again.
The demographics on this vessel were skewed toward old folks, but likely due
to the itinerary & time of year.
The port calls get mixed reviews. Corner Brook Canada is the worst port of call ever. Sidney Canada a close second. Halifax was great, and Saint John pretty good. Bar Harbor was beautiful & worth going back to. Less
Cabin review: SE9000 Penthouse with Large Balcony
Cabin 9000 Norwegian Dawn: Spacious. Huge deck. Very good bed. Surprisingly good shower. In bow of vessel, with great views. Nice TV, but limited channels (only 2 live stations, Fox News & MSNBC, plus live NFL games on Sunday-Monday). Plenty of storage. Good maid service. Right below the bridge, so curtains have to drawn at night. Temperature was always comfortable. Not an issue, since nothing to see in the dark anyway. Would highly recommend this cabin.Read All Penthouse with Large Balcony (SE) Reviews >>
