Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review by Denaliman

  • Destination: Canada & New England
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony

Took this cruise to celebrate our anniversary. Wanted to catch the eastern fall colours

We have done several cruises (mainly with NCL) but we get the feeling that their shipboard experience has deteriorated considerably. It seems that everywhere you turn, they are charging extra for things that used to be complimentary. Maybe we are getting more critical after having been on several cruises, but this had definitely gone downhill in our opinion.

We felt that the food in the dining rooms had dropped in quality and selection. Mediocre at best. Dress code now seems non-existent in dining areas.

It seems like they are constantly trying to promote or sell something - raffle tickets, etc.

The ship design seems to be disorganised. The layout is not as user friendly as other ships that we have been on.

On the plus side, our cabin steward was great. One of the best we have had.

We like NCL because of their itineraries and freestyle dining options. We have placed a deposit for a future NCL cruise, but will definitely also be looking at other cruise lines for future cruises.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 9586

Cabin was good. Mid-ship balcony cabin on port side. Overall cabin was fine, on a par with other cruise ships that we have been on. Door to balcony was very stiff. Cabin steward was great.
