Gatsby’s is best hangout, but super crowded since it’s the only good nightlife option.

we had had very good comments on this cruise line from family members and it was suppose to be a little more fancy than our only other cruise which was with Carnival Victory (it was very enjoyable although the ship ran low on breakfast meats on the last day). This was to be a very special cruise our first with just us and we planned to redo our vows for our 20th anniversary. Embarkation day we ...

5 Day Caribbean Cruise on NCL Dawn First let me say we had a wonderful cruise. Staff was very attentive to cruisers needs. Embarkation went very smoothly. We were able to get a nice sit down lunch in the main dining room. We know that the ship had undergone a dry dock refurbishment. The Venetian Dining room was now decorated with paintings with beautiful frames but the art work was very ...

I booked NCL Dawn to try a different NCL ship. I had been on the NCL Bliss and NCL Sky before this one. Bliss being one of the newest and Sky being one of the oldest. The Dawn has had a recent refurb, but I do not believe that included the guest rooms, just the public areas. The ships pool is VERY small. Being a larger ship than the Sky it has half the pool that the Sky does. Food was average, ...

Hello. I was looking for a cruise to wind down and relax. However the cruise was a tornado of dysfunctional proportions by the cruise line. I get to the window and give them my passports. They ask for my room number. I offer it. The lady says, no the room number on the website is not your room. The supervisor female comes over and says they double booked us. Here is our number to our room. They ...

I can’t complain much. This is my 3rd Norwegian cruise and 6 overall. I’ve been on the escape in 2017 and the sky in 2012. The escape by far was the best. The bathroom toilet on the Dawn smelt terrible the whole time. The bathroom were the toilet was, was very tight. I’m not a huge person either. I had 2 specialty dining package when I booked. Ate at los labos and cagneys steakhouse. The ...

So many issues with our cruise with NCL on the Dawn to Belize and Mexico .. Issues started pre cruise with cabin changes without notice. Than once onboard the issues continued, 1st occurrence was the steward throwing out a case of water and Gatorade that was brought onboard with no issues . Than another issue we had happened before our port of call which was Belize, apparently ...

I rated my experience as “poor” due to the lack of quality customer service and resolution. I just came back from Norwegian Dawn porting from Miami and it was by far an unenjoyable experience. This is not my first cruise; however, it was with this cruise line and I will not be back nor, will I be referring anyone. The onboard staff was not helpful in resolving issues that arise while at sea. The ...

Complete let down for my first cruise.

Unfortunately the overall service on this cruise was poor. The bartenders on both pool deck bars seemed to always be in a bad mood and overworked. If you asked them anything that was not a drink order it was greeted with an eye roll and sigh. Dinners in both main dining rooms, Aqua and Venetian, took extremely long. Other parties of similar size would come in after us and leave before us. ...

This was our first time cruising with Norwegian and it was a disaster. We decided to go on the Dawn the day after our wedding so we booked a suite and brought 38 of our friends and family on board. When we entered the terminal, we were brought back to the priority boarding area since we had a suite. When we entered, we were offered refreshments but were never told about any of the VIP perks to ...

Decent Amenities, But Didn't Make Up for Poor Cabin Experience

This was my first time cruising with Norwegian. The food was tasty most of the time, though the service was a bit slow, especially in the 24-hour pub-style dining facility. I enjoyed the number of amenities and entertainment options. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly the housekeepers and servers in the restaurants. I was caught off guard that most of the "seminars" ...
