Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review by VCC

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: the Caribbean

The itinerary was excellent. Embarkation was very smooth as was the disembarkation. The cabin was clean but used glasses and coffee cups were not always replaced with clean ones. Washroom and shower functioned well. Pool towels were always available.

Entertainment was varied and generally of a good quality.

Spa services were excellent.

The eating areas were all extremely loud either with the noise of passengers talking or music that was turned up so you couldn't hear anyone talking. Tables were not always wiped clean. Wait staff ranged from friendly and accommodating to surely and lethargic. Quality of food was inconsistent. Beef Kabobs so tough that they couldn't be eaten to prime rib that melted in your mouth. Both obtained in the Venetian dining room.

Trying to get into the main dining rooms during the first 4 nights was near impossible with waits of up to an hour. When we requested reservations the staff was curt and said that we should just line up...eventually she gave us 7:30 reservations.
