Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review by Grillific
- Sail Date: March 2017
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Obstructed Oceanview
We had planned to take our Daughter and her son on a cruise with us during our grandsons winter break. We booked an inside room for four and waited for the day of the cruise. Two weeks prior to the cruise my daughter decided to get married and make this her honeymoon along with her new husband.
We booked an oceanview cabin for them and when we arrived they decided they would prefer to switch to an inside. We went to the service desk and the change was made with no difficulty at all.
Food was decent and service was wonderful. We had Leo F. as our waiter in the Augua dining room. After our first night with him we requested to be seated at his table each night. All I can say is we could not have had better service.
My wife and I don't do many tours int he ports and on this cruise only got off at the private island and Costa Maya. Our honeymoon couple enjoyed their time at all the ports. Our grandson loved the youth program. The circus show at the end of the cruise put on by the kids was one of the best shows of the week. Of course you can guess why.
Entertainment was good
If you are expecting gourmet food you will need to dine in the special dining areas and pay extra for it. We find the food in the normal dining rooms to be to our liking. We ate at the buffet for breakfast and lunch and the menu there changed on a daily basis. They even had late night snacks.
All in all a cruise is what you make of your time, not what the cruise line provides. we have taken over 23 cruises and each one has been up to our liking.
