Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Inside

I am a BIG NCL fan. I love the service and the friendliness of the crew. I believe Norwegian has the friendliest crew at sea. Same could be said for the hard working men and women on the Dawn, but the Officers are not as friendly as they are on the Escape #1 and the Getaway coming in at #2 (so take a lesson Dawn officers).

To my horror there was no Latin band on board. They had plenty of musical entertainment which had very, very good attendance throughout the cruise, but no Latin on this 2 week cruise. There were terrible dance classes by offered by the staff, but good line dancing classes taught by Jodie the C.D. Jodie was great but her staff was a bit inexperienced. The Production shows were packed, I only attended a few. All and all the cruise was ok for me but the lack of a Latin band was a tough pill to swallow.

The Pool area is a joke on this ship the pool is so small for 2300 plus passengers.

Cabin Review


The cabin was good enough in size and the steward did a decent job at keeping us happy with the service.

Port Reviews


Embarkation is the worst in the history of cruises and that is due to the poor antiquated port set up. HINT: get there after 1PM and you won't stand in line for 2 to 3 hours.
