  3. Norwegian Dawn
After the 5th cruise with NCL we will no longer cruise with others cruise lines. Upon the Norwegian Dawn from Boston we had attentive staff, good accommodations and food options every day, good entertainment, varied activities, etc. We ate dinners multiple times during the week at the Aqua & Venetian restaurants and the staff were great and the food was amazing! The options were good...my only suggestion would be a more varied fowl (chicken) dish option on the menu for those that are not red-meat or seafood eaters...with that being said the rotisserie chicken option was amazing and the portion was a meal & a half. The wait staff were great throughout the ship and the entertainment was very good also. I'd suggest better timing of the art auctions and biggest critique is saying an art event to name the winners of a contest is at 1pm but then it didn't occur until the end of the 2 hours event (1-3pm), so that was disappointing. Overall, a great experience from embarking to the return! The free NCL tender from the dockyard to St Georges port was GREAT...get there early! "Cruise Like A Norwegian!"

Great cruise (AGAIN) with Norwegian

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside
Cabin IA 10071
Such a great experience we had overall and our stateroom attendant (Sanjay) was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. Our room was made up promptly each day, turned-down in the evening at appropriate times, we never had to wait for anything from him, and he provided entertaining towel animals each day. A little more desktop space (maybe provide an option to not have a mini-bar in the room as we don't use it) would be nice, but that is the only suggestion I would have. The experience was enjoyable from start to finish, as usual!
