This will all come out in my blog review, but I wanted to share my experience on the Norwegian Dawn (March 12-19 of 2023), here first. The embarkation and Debarkation was a cluster of epic proportions and the "choose your board time" was nonexistent. I loved all the ports this ship took us too, one even offering a passport stamp for a donation. When we sail, we want good food, good entertainment and port stops we haven’t been to or wanted to explore more. On the Dawn, the buffet food was tasteless and often overcooked, always uninspired, and no real variety. They took me to a port, in Honduras, where I could shop or do any number of excursions, and I opted to shop, purchasing a large, polished and shiny, shell from a shop there. Upon arrival back to the ship - Norwegian’s security TOOK MY SHELL, despite nothing being said in their daily newsletter called the “Freestyle Daily” about this being a prohibited item (attached is a pic for proof). I'm really upset about this and there was no fighting it then. I really want my shell back.


• There was little to no balcony access and seating outside so we could enjoy the deck outside.
