We chose this cruise mostly for the itinerary. Ports were good. For some reason it took more than an hour to get back on the ship in San Juan, as they only had one gangway open and very little crew working at the gangway. Had some issues ... Read more

We did this same cruise 3 years ago and had a great time. We live in NH and the Boston departure port was excellent (no flying to departure port), and what can be wrong about New Orleans. Although we had visited a number of the Islands ... Read more

This repo most likely the best cruise in our 11 cruises( 6 NCL).This was due to having our first suite, sailing from the home port as well as having the original UDP. As a result, We never ate at the main dining room or buffet. I ate in ... Read more

This was my 8th cruise with NCL and 4th on the Dawn. I chose the re-positioning cruise because I went in April 2015 and enjoyed the length of time and the amount of stops. I have only cruised with NCL so can't compare to any other cruise ... Read more

This was my first cruise ever. The port of embarkation was a cold Boston and within two days the temperature went up as we sailed for the first port, San Juan. First three days in sea, but there is plenty to do aboard. We stayed in ... Read more

I was a big time lover of NCL before this cruise. The crew for the most part didn't seem happy to be there. Majority of the crew would walk by without smiling or saying hello. When we were on the Star everyone was happy and everyone said ... Read more

The cruise was 14 days starting in Boston and ending in New Orleans. The dining was good for the most part. The cooks at Teppanyaki were not really as good as we have experienced in the past. We went twice and had the same experience ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on the Dawn. Living inland Massachusetts it makes for an easy ride to the port. Most of the changes done at the dry dock were favorable. The Theater is nice with new colors. O'Sheehans has taken over the entire ... Read more

We like the freestyle cruising of Norwegian. There is no appointed place or time for a given room. The list of things to do is extensive on sea days and even enough to keep most busy even on port of call days. Activities include: ... Read more

We traveled the Norwegian Dawn on its 7 Day journey to Bermuda and back to Boston in October. There were highs and lows to the trip. We gave it an average score as a result. Embarkation was relatively easy although TSA screening was ... Read more

The cruise from Boston to Bermuda on the Dawn. The service on the Norwegian dawn was not great. We had to always go up to a very crowded bar for a drink. The waiters never came around to take our drink orders. The Staff seemed miserable ... Read more

We love this itinerary, for us it's very convenient living only 45 minutes away, no airports to contend with. We pull right up to the porters station unload the luggage and then we walk up the "to ship" escalator. Very easy, very ... Read more

My overall experience was very good. It was a little disorganized when we embarked...but not necessarily related to Norwegian. My wife and I were happy with the cabin. At first we were thinking that the 5th deck would be too low, but ... Read more
