Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review by Pink Shell
- Sail Date: December 2017
- Destination: Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
We booked a balcony cabin (BA), then offered $200 pP for a Mini Suite in the upgrade auction, and won.
Everybody on the ship was great, employees and passengers alike. We mostly had dinner in the Venetian, and breakfast in the Garden Cafe. We liked the concept of being served the meals instead of going to the buffet like on the ships we had been on before. Service was always excellent.
Churrasco was super great, Cagneys Steakkouse was okay. The menu at Cagney was a bit limited.
We booked one excursion (Catamaran in Antigua), which was great. On the other days we ventured off by taxis or walked to town or the nearest beach.
Drinks were great, good quality and selection. We had the drink package included in our cruise package, very nice to just show your card, and not having to bother with tips. However I would hesitate to buy the UDP seperately, as it comes up to more than $100 pP. I cannot drink so much :-)

St. Kitts (Port Zante)Taxi to Fregate Beach. Food and drink seemed a bit improvised, another couple had waited 90 min for food, so we didn`t order. Quite a number of football sized rocks in the water, and quite steep to enter the water.View All 1,705 St. Kitts (Port Zante) Cruise Port Reviews

St. ThomasMini bus to Magen Beach. The beach is great, but suffered a lot by the hurricanes. They had simple food on sale, and expensive drinks (5$ Carib, 8$ rum punch). Hoping part of the money is used for beach build up, we bought beers and rented chairs anyway.View All 4,677 St. Thomas Cruise Port Reviews
