  3. Norwegian Dawn
Overall, we enjoyed the Dawn. Food We ate in three specialty restaurants, both main rooms and Garden Cafe. The quality of the food was consistently good. Our biggest complaint was the lack of variety for the breakfast buffet. Le Bistro and La Cucina were both excellent. Cagney’s Was ok, with my steak being too thin and over cooked. The food choices and quality in the main rooms were very good Entertainment Loved the different music groups, especially VIP and Azalea. The shows in Stardust were also very good Shore excursion They were ok. However, the process of getting off the ship with tenders was chaotic and poorly organized Service While there were examples of exemplary service, it was inconsistent. I expected to be wowed but the service often fell short. Some of the staff were not nice and were unable to anticipate guests’ needs I would go on Dawn again. I think the entertainment and food made up for service shortcomings

Enjoyable music and good food
