Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review by the first & last time: the worst service, even worse food !!!
Overall Member Rating
the worst service, even worse food !!!
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
don't be fooled into thinking you will get quality: we took a week long cruise on the Dawn from NYC to Bermuda. our first cruise and most likely our last cruise, especially with NCL $250/week parking at NYC......yet another rip off !
i liked the top 10 list format another poster used, so i will use a similar posting format.
it was the worst , we eached gained 10 lbs from water weight due to the salt !
we maintain a healthier diet and were not enamored by the endless supply of cheap salty food.the awful buffet had long lines, good luck finding a fork and napkin...we had to ask other people if we can take a set off their table....this is ghetto style cruising !!!
the main dining rooms were packed because the ship was over crowded with 30 minute waits.
i was told 3 corporate employees were on board, i saw one man in a wrinkled shirt writing notes on a napkin, turns out he was indeed from corporate....what a joke ! these people should be fired immediately !!!
the executive chef walked around like he was someone important, he did not test the temperature or taste a single item on the entire buffet line. the food was more often then not cold or just warm. 20 minutes for an omlette in the mornings because they had one employee making the omlettes for 300 cruisers, again what a joke !!!
but don't worry, if you want powdered eggs , they had plenty in the cafeteria style pans at the buffet.
remember we paid $3000+++ for this cruise....all in, it cost over $4500 with excusions.
the french restaurant le bistro was the worst and it cost $25+$10 extra per person to dine there. the food director of the ship is french , he needs to go to paris and actually taste real french food, for if he served that garbage to a real french chef, he would be laughed out of paris !
the carnival ship had a giant slide on it which we saw while docked in NYC, the Dawn has No slide or No real pool in reality.....packed liked sardines,loud people laying inches away from one another, you will be searching for a lounge chair everyday. this was truely ghetto and an awful experience.
the jacuzzis were not hot and they were over crowded ,as they only have a few for 3000 people ?
plan on being charged $150 each if you want to "swim" in their 20 foot long pool adjacent to the gym.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED EARNED MONEY WITH THIS CRUISE LINE !!! Less
