At port in Cozumel
Three sisters from Kentucky and Randon Lauron, guitarist/vocalist from Phillipines.
Gatsby’s is best hangout, but super crowded since it’s the only good nightlife option.

Repositioning to Boston 2017

Review for Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - All

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

Twelve days is NOT too much, we LOVED IT!! We chose this cruise because we always wanted to do a reposition cruise. Leaving out of NOLA allowed us to visit with family who live there and arriving back in Boston sealed the deal since this is where we live. Thanks to our niece and nephew, we got to see a great deal of New Orleans via walking and by car the day before the cruise. It is s beautiful ...

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 ...

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 ...

We chose this cruise because it was a re-positioning cruise with multiple ports we had not been to, many sea days which we love and because it was on the Dawn and we had done a repo cruise 2 years ago and LOVED it. What makes the ship and this trip so great? The officers and crew who go out of their way to make sure you're having a great time. The ship is not too big so you have the ...

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 ...

I went on this cruise with my husband, sister, brother-in-law. I had a great time. Embarkation was great because my sister had a suite and they let us embark with them instead of waiting in the cattle call...definitely a bonus! Our room Steward, Goodeye (pronounced Good Day), was the sweetest thing. He did a great job keeping our tiny room clean and his towel animals were the best. I was ...

Dirty, poorly run ship

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

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 the men's nor women's stalls would always unlock from the inside. Quite a few, including myself got locked in. Got a notice about 1/2 through that "Technical Work" was going to be ...
