NCL Dawn Thanksgiving Cruise 2010
Destination: Southern Caribbean
As far as the free style cruising, I can take it or leave it. It depends on the person. If you prefer the personal touch, then free style might not be for you. If you are really into the excursions and not picky about what time you have dinner, then you will probably like free style. But to sum it all up we had a wonderful time met a whole lot of new friends and have already put a deposit down on another cruise with NCL. The food on this ship was not the best we have had but it wasn't the worst either. I did have a problem paying extra for the various speciality restaurants,French,Tex-Mex,Asian,Steak etc. They ranged in price from $10.00 to $25.00 pp extra. We payed extra for the Tex-Mex which was pretty good, and also payed extra for the Sushi/Asian, which was $15.00. The Sushi was AWESOME.The food on the buffet was tolerable and the Blue lagoon was pretty good. Especially the cheese cake late at night after the shows. Less
Cabin review: BA9576 Mid-Ship Balcony
We were in Cabin 9576 port side forward. The cabin was OK at its best. It is fine for 2 adults and 1 average size child. Once the couch is folded out to a bed, you cannot get out on the balcony. We had the steward to not pull the bed out all the way and it was OK after that, if you squeezed through. The sliding door was VERY noisy and the glass very dirty(salt spray). It wasn't cleaned the entire trip. The drawers on the dressed under the table would not stay in during rough weather, which was a lot of the nights. We had to wedge a piece of paper in them to keep them closed. We found the cabin noise inside very annoying(creaking,popping,etc.)What we did like a lot about the room was the bathroom. Separate Potty,Vanity & Shower w/ sliding doors. A lot better then the curtains on other cruise lines.Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
