Back from first cruise on Norwegian cruise lines (Dawn)

Sail Date: April 2014
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa

We have just returned from our first cruise on Norwegian cruise lines (Norwegian Dawn). We have previously cruised on Carnival and Princess. We had heard so much and read so many reviews on Norwegian good ad bad about food and entertainment we were skeptical but were willing to find out. Now that we have I can now report back. 1. Food (B+) We found contrary to some reviews the food was quite good,The Aqua and Venetian dining rooms were very good we did not ever have a bad meal at either venue. The menu feature a couple of changes every night atmosphere was nice and the servers were always on top of things it was especially nice to eat whenever you wanted and did not have to participate in Formal night if you did not wish to. The Garden Cafe was good for breakfast and lunches nice variety of food and very tasty. The Barbeques that they had outside the garden cafe was an extra bonus again very good. Did not try any specialty restaurants .2.Entertainment (B) Patti and Jose drew a big More crowd every time they played, the band Great Ideas was out favorite very easy to listen and dance to. Shows at the Stardust theater were very entertaining and comedian Tim Kaminski was very funny getting people involved in his show a lot of laughs!! 3. Cabins (D) Only because we had an inside cabin which we did not mind because we did not spend a lot of time in them,but ours was right underneath La Cucina restaurant. Every night around 1-2am when they cleaned the galley it was like rolling thunder made may calls to the front desk about the noise mostly to no avail. 4)Ship layout (B) Very nice maybe not as glitzy as some we have been on but very nice non the less. Overall it was a very nice cruise and I would have no problem cruising with Norwegian again. Less
