  3. Norwegian Dawn
This was our third January in a row on the dawn. We do like the ship, however, we booked it again more for the price, perks, and the itinerary. We had a wonderful Cruise, even though we had already visited all the ports previously. We did do something different in some of the ports that we hadn't done in the past. The service was very good, the food Dash especially the specialty restaurants was outstanding. The weather was fabulous. This was the first time we tried the specialty dining. We went to for the restaurants in our favorite was Moderno. My wife has a food allergy, so mr. Q insured her food selections were taking care of each day prior to them being served. We also had the drink package, and was disappointed that to beverages we like were raised above the $15 limit. Most of the entertainment was pretty good, Cruise director was outstanding. I wish the cruise line would enforce their rules... Such as Cruisers wearing shorts to Cagney's, in the main dining room after 5 p.m., and cigarette smokers in the Cigar Lounge. I've been on this ship a total of 27 days, I'm a cigar smoker, and not one smoked a cigar in the lounge because of the numerous cigarette smokers in there

Third time on the Dawn in 3 years

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 9666
Our cabin was very nice, and comfortable. Only two complaints... There were toenail clippings in the balcony floor when we arrived, and most of them still there when we Departed. Also the door to the bathroom would not stay closed and latched unless you're inside and lock the door. We like the location of our cabin, because we could pop right out of our room and into the lounge, and just drop down one floor to get a drink.
