The British Isle itinerary was great
"Also, there was no outside bar in the back of the ship, instead they made it a pool for the children lounge.They were Gatsby’s Bar with music, but one had to be careful not to sit too close to the Cigar Bar which at times the smell of heavy smoke was encountered...."Read More

Norwegian Dawn Falls Short

The staff that are working on the Norwegian Dawn are fantastic. But the organization of getting on and off the ship is terrible. Norwegian has complicated getting on the ship for the first time to new horizons. Multiple waiting areas for no apparent reason. Worst we have ever seen. It was also the worst management of shore excursions that we have ever seen on any cruise. At any one time ...

We chose this cruise due to the variety of the intinerary. We had never sailed on Norwegian, but have had good experiences with lines as diverse as Carnival and Silversea. The embarkation point in Amsterdam was conveniently located to the City. The embarkation process itself was painfully long, chaotic and barely sanitary. The cabins were fine. A bit dated. No USB charging stations and the ...

The British Isle itinerary was great. 10 days was a good length. I have done 7. Day cruises and they just seem too short. There was one day at sea and all others in ports. We started in Amsterdam, Bruges, Sea Day, Edinburgh, Invernook, Orkney Island, Belfast, Liverpool, Dublin, Portland, Southampton. The ship was a good size., not too big There were two flaws, there was no observation lounge, ...

Let me start by saying we are not very experienced cruisers, so we don't have much comparison data. We booked this cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The last cruise we took was on our honeymoon, 20 years earlier. Our decision to go with Norwegian was primarily because of the interesting and diverse itinerary, but to us, the absolute best part of the trip was the wonderful staff. ...

This was my fifth cruise and the oldest and smallest ship I’ve been on. It was an excellent experience. The Dawn is still very well-maintained and didn’t feel dirty or old in the slightest. We reportedly had 1400 passengers onboard, so 60% capacity. The ship felt fully staffed and there were never long line-ups. Where it felt busy was when they closed the main dining rooms for lunch *and* ...

Even though we had been on the Dawn four times already, we chose this cruise for the itineraries and therefore went on the Dawn again. We did not have high expectations because it’s an older ship. Thankfully we were wrong. The ship was half empty. We were upgraded to a Haven cabin. Our butler was amazing. His name was Cipriano. He brought us food whenever we asked made sure we had enough towels ...
