Review for Norwegian Dawn to Europe - All

Did not do a tour from the ship. This was a tender port which adds much time to get out and about. The city had people to help buy a bus pass. Getting to the Royal Mile was easy. The Royal Mile was disappointing. It was like NYC 5 Avenue where many lower ends souvenir were available. We did get lost walking around, to get the bus to go back to the ship. It was a decent city. ...

Edingburgh is a fascinating city with a long history. The Royal Mile, Holyrood, the Castle and other buildings are great to see and explore.

The 5 stars is for the city; the tour itself was probably a 1 star. ...

Thursday was the final stop in Scotland at Edinburgh. The ship did not dock and used its lifeboats to shuttle people into the Queensferry port – the tender boat time and a 40 minute shuttle bus ride into town significantly delayed enjoyment of Edinburgh. Ray had obtained online tickets for Edinburgh Castle so they walked from St. Andrews square to Edinburgh Castle, built on top of a hill. ...

Gorgeous scenery - took the x99 bus at the port for 9 pounds round trip. Had prebooked the castle tickets. We walked up to the castle - if you can’t walk there are buses and taxis. ...

Too hard to really see much of the city in a short time on a general tour. We should have picked a specific point of interest and taken that tour. ...
