Ship Facts: Norwegian Dawn Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Dawn Deck Plans
Perfect Vacation
The only part of the cruise that was a negative was the check-in. When providing the documents at ticket counter, the lady seemed to have no clue on reading a foreign passport (my wife has a UK passport). Took about 10-15 minutes just at the counter. Once that was done, the rest of the cruise was a dream vacation. We dined in 3 of the specialty dining rooms. Cagney's steakhouse was a favorite. We required a gluten free diet and we were amazed at how the staff accommodates to that. Basically, the night before next dinner, you ask your waiter to get a menu from the next dining room you plan on dining in the next night. You pick food off the regular menu and the chief makes the meal gluten free. No special menu for gluten free, they make it how you need it. That was unreal. Everyone seemed to understand and we educated on gluten free diets.

He ship was beautiful and food was very good compared to another cruise lines we have traveled on in the past. Most of the travelers were middle aged and I didn't see to many children on this cruise.

Our stateroom steward was exceptional. Can't say enough about him, room was always clean and he was very friendly. Didn't like the onboard shows much and the leg room in the theater was terrible. I think that is the only bad thing besides the problem at check-in. Hats off to Oliver and Iulia (two of the Maitre D's).

Can't wait for the next cruise!
