Norwegian Dawn - Western Caribbean: Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review by John E
Overall Member Rating
Norwegian Dawn - Western Caribbean
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
For the downside. Most cruise lines nickle and dime you to death. The Dawn quarters and dollars you to death. Drinks are $8 per. Even their special is no special. Carnival charges $4 for their drink specials, Beers are around $4.50 each. Soda for the trip is about $60 unlimited. Bingo is between $20 and $40 per session. Every seminar they run is a sales pitch to buy one of their products. You will get nothing else out of it. There was a singer who sold his disc at $30 a pop. I sat down to a game of Texas Hold em and the dealer took an astounding 10% from each pot, I guess that is why the Hold em table was empty for most of the trip.
We really love this ship and the cleanliness of it, and we will probably go on it again. We love the freestyle dining and the fact we did not have to dress up if we did not want to. Entertainment was top notch.
The activities during the day were mostly sales pitches, but we relaxed and had a great time. I will go on the Dawn again. Less
