Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Balcony

We just got off the Dawn today. We were in cabin 10706 balcony cabin. It was a great room. Comfortable close to the aft elevators and very quiet. A lot of people said the crew was very unfriendly. We found the opposite. The crew was awesome and very helpful. We did not find a ship in disrepair. It is clean and very nice. We loved Bamboo and the Pub Osheas. Go there for breakfast. It’s quieter and much easier than looking for a table at the buffet. It’s a nice place to get a snack to watch football. NFL only and limited games. No College Football. We tried all the specialty restaurants except the Italian restaurant and they were very good. The Dining Rooms were hit or miss. Service for us was slow very slow! The food was not bad but not exceptional. We had a wonderful server in the Venetian. Her name is Kathy and she works near the windows in the back. I highly recommend asking for her. The pool was great! Plenty of lounge chairs to chose from. The chairs that are padded under the canopy went fast. The poolside food was great! Loved the hot dogs! It was a 15 day cruise and we loved it. I would sail NCL again.
