Sail Date: Mar 2012
Cabin: Aft-Facing Balcony

We started cruising on Norwegian over 15 years ago and they are our favorite cruise line. We love the Freestyle cruising and the Dawn did not disappoint us. The ship was very nice in every respect and the crew was terrific.

The entertainment was excellent, as well. We only ate in the main dining room and the food was good, sometimes great. If we didn't care for the menu, we used the Grden Cafe and the food was always good. We really like this size ship as it is large enough to have all the ammenities, but no so big as to make you feel lost.

We thought the aft facing balcony was just great although I wouldn't recommend it if you have motion sickness. We had the opportunity to have dinner with the Captain and his wife. What a treat. He then invited us for a tour of the Bridge. It was awesome.

Cabin Review

Aft-Facing Balcony

The aft facing balcony was great and we loved the size of the balcony. The room is fine for two people and the bath was adequate. Since you are at the Stern, you get more motion and I wouldn't recommend this if you have any motion problems. We were concerned about additional noise--engine and from the nightclub below us, but there was no problem--we slept like babies.
