  3. Norwegian Dawn
This was our first cruise....and it was wonderful. We didn't know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Cabin: The room was small compared to hotel rooms but it wasn't really cramped because of how well organized it was. Lots of storage space to get your "stuff" out of the way. Bathrooms, again small, but big enough.....the shower was great...we've had much smaller in hotels. Food: no complaints there...we didn't have the extra dining package, but we didn't need it! Plenty of choices with the complementary meals. However, there were rave reviews about the Mexican restaurant and it lived up to the hype. Very good food, plenty per portion and well priced. Entertainment: the theater was beautiful...and had a good variety of shows....also liked that they were offered at two different times so we could fit more things into our evening. All of the acts were very good. Service: Never had better....from our cabin, to the dining...everyone was pleasant and very friendly. Ports: We booked our shore excursions from independent people from each port of call and not through Norwegian....the only port we didn't really like was Harvest Caye....swimming (pool or ocean), zip-lining, shops and some paddle boards or little electric boats in a very small area.....very resort like. Wished we had booked something on the mainland. Overall......a wonderful experience.....we are planning our next cruise right now!

Loved it!!!

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin IF 5527
Was larger than expected....very nice and clean. I have no complaints.
A shelf in the bathroom on the wall above the TP would be nice, but that's just a suggestion.
