Large and busy ship

We didn't choose the cruise,it came as part of a visit to Tenessee.It was a very large ship and very busy as it was half term in some parts of America. There was only one small pool, far too small for the amount of passengers on board,also there's a children's play pool and water slides. This area of the ship was always packed with people, many of whom spent the day drinking alcohol. On ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

After 7 cruises on NCL beginning with the Norway in 1999, no more NCL for us until some policies are reversed. We felt more nickel and dimed than ever. First you can no longer bring your own bottled water on board. I can't tolerate the tap water on the ship as it makes me feel ill and the cost of on board bottled water is ridiculous. This amounts to extortion. Also once on board I was ...

Left port out of New Orleans. Parking was $90 up front before you park. This was organized and very quick from time you pull in the garage to the time you begin boarding. 5 to 10 mins max. Once your on the boat you are immediately in tje middle of the large entertainment area. Dont let that fool you. Its kinda down hill from there. Im not going to bore you with tiny details but there are deal ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

The room and service were the best. The staff does go above and beyond. The food for lunch is your typical hot dogs and hamburgers. The breakfast is probably the worst, the eggs are runny, omelettes are super oily. Fresh fruit is beat up pears and apples and canned peaches. The mongolian wok was good but close to an hour wait. There were long lines for the food every day I was there. The pizza was ...

I had the best time on this cruise. I have been on many cruises with lots of companies but this cruise prompted me to join cruise critic and write this review. I have read other reviews and understand that the Dawn is old but she still is a beauty and the staff take care of her well. Apart from a bit of wear and tear she is in great condition which was surprising as I was expecting her to barely ...

Booking on Deck 9

Our cabin was on deck nine just under "The Gathering", (the place where you ate is you didn't want to dine in one of the fine restaurants) and the pool & the recreation area which was Deck 10 & 11. Anytime during the night, you could hear tables & chairs scooting around on the decks. We complained several times. they said they were unaware of any such problems. How could they have not known? ...

Spring Break Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

I went into my first cruise with extremely low expectations. It was my final college Spring Break week; I figured it would be mediocre, the food would probably stink and just overall be a cheap cruise. The boat is on the older side of their fleet but other than that I was completely wrong. The Carnival Elation staff was awesome. The first day I went to the dining hall and asked a crew member ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

This was my first cruise. Staff was GREAT, especially dining staff (GORAN!) Food was exquisite. I probably gained 10+ pounds. The rooms were not spacey, but definitely not cramped. IT GETS REALLY HOT IN THE ROOMS. This was the ONLY thing I didn't like about the cruise. (& the prices of drinks, I DEFINITELY recommend the Cheers! package) Comedic acts were great. There's LOTS of entertainment, ...

This was our third time cruising NCL, and first time on the Dawn. Other ships included the Pearl and Spirit. We selected this cruise because of the itinerary and previous good experiences on NCL. Have also cruised on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Ships many times. We left Chicago's snow and cold, and flew to New Orleans the day before our cruise. Stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn New Orleans ...

as a first time cruiser, everyone said you will be hooked! We were. Loved every moment of it! my husband being an old retire sailor, spent years at sea. He loved it. we were traveling with 3 other couples and all our rooms were nearby. We had the Empress Deck. they had interior rooms. We had a $30 upgrade to an ocean view. Sailing out of new orleans it takes 8 hours to get out of the channel into ...
