Dirty, poorly run ship

I've been on Norwegian before and thought the re positioning cruise out of New Orleans looked good. Price was right, but I was wrong. Not only was the ship dirty and poorly run, but the bathroom stalls in neither ...

Had done a previous relocation from NO to Boston and loved it. It had been one of our favorite cruises. This one was good but not as good as the relocation in 2015. We liked the 2015 ports better and had a suite. We ...

NOLA to Boston Repositioning

This is about the 5th time we have done a Dawn repositioning from New Orleans to Boston, or the fall reverse. As always, we find the repositioning to be a great value, as well as the added advantage of walking off ...
