This cruise was from New Orleans to Boston 12 days with five port. It s à repositioning cruise. The price was very good for 12 days. The cabin was ok clean and fonctionnal. The food was overall good to very good for the most part. We have been to every show at night in the stardust theater ( Musical comedy, Humor, Hypnosis, Magician ) Service at the different bar was a little bit slow but what to ...

Let me start by saying that I have never complained about "any" cruise that I have been on in my life, they were all pretty great with some minor flaws and lots of positives... with that been said, I must let potential Norwegian Dawn cruisers get a peek into this ship and crew: A couple complaints and then I'll breakdown the issues by category. Trust me this is a ship you will not be ...

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 the ship and being home in 40 minutes without the hassle of boarding a plane. Our goal on vacation is sleep late, drink lots, and eat good food. This cruise fulfilled all the above. ...

It was chaos in New Orleans for embarkation but disembarkation in Boston went very smoothly. Jose and Patti who were entertainment in the atrium were an amazing husband and wife duet. The buffet was a bit lacking, this was my first cruise ever where I only got mashed potatoes once and I am a mashed potato lover and am used to getting them at buffet for lunch or dinner. Was very confused as to why ...

Flew to New Orleans to take the ship which ended in Boston where I live. Everything was perfect.. Very attentive butler. We were in a suite which was a great experience. Taking a suite is just not the better cabin, but all of the perks that come along with it. Every move you make is a priority over everyone else on the ship. A suite is the only way to cruise. Norwegian did it up perfectly. ...

We chose this 12 day cruise on the Dawn from NOLA to Boston because it was a great deal, fit perfectly into the itinerary that we had in mind, we had heard good things about Norweigan from others and the research we had done into it all seemed fine. We booked it for our Honeymoon and were very excited, my wife has a gluten allergy and on all the other cruises we had been on with Royal Caribbean ...

I will start by saying we have cruised with NCL 18 times, and have never complained. My attitude is "If you can't find the good , that is your problem." This was the 8th time on the Dawn the 4th re-po.We chose this cruise because we love taking reposition cruises, especially if Boston is at the beginning or end. We live in central MA which allows for only one way flight. We spent 2 days ...

We chose this cruise because we tend to enjoy the longer cruises as well as the re-positioning cruises. It was my husband, a friend and I in one cabin and my sister and her husband in another. We love traveling together with my sister and her husband. We didn't really care for the itinerary as much as ones in the past. In Cozumel, Mexico, our 2nd time to this island, we did the Fury ...

Have elderly family - nearly the last of my father's side of the family - living near Boston and try to visit a couple of times a year. Options are flight to Logan (from where I live in the Florid Panhandle) for a couple of days visit...or an ugly slog up I-10 and I-95 (or I-85 and I-95 for a couple of days each way. A couple of years ago I saw a re-positioning of the RCI Serenade of the Seas ...

We chose this cruise because of the length and locations it was going too. We had never been to the Western Caribbean. Since we had a Family Suite with a balcony we received the privilages that come with this. Once we arrived at the pier we looked for the location where people in Suites checked in. They first tried having us go in line with everyone else but I knew better so I looked around and ...
